Build has delicious pizza made to order with whatever your heart desires. A wide variety of toppings! There is also a more bar scene side where you can enjoy a drink with your pizza (either side you can drink but one side is more family friendly than the other). Close by to the Downtown Berkeley Bart station and UC Berkeley... More

We visited here for an after movie dinner and were pleasantly surprised. We loved the industrial chic décor -- check out the cool, recycled hardwood floors! Our friends gave it good reviews and Build lived up to its reputation. The brussels sprouts and caesar salad were good starters. The thin-crust pizzas (try the meatball!) and the bbq chicken were inventive... More

We wish that we could give this restaurant a good review but even though the food is good the service on the three occasions that we ate there over the past three years was horrible.

Having left the Bay area a decade ago to live on the East Coast I was looking forward to a nice meal so when my friends recommended we meet here for pizza I was not thrilled (as I am originally from Chicago - home of the BEST pizza). I begrudgingly accepted then was WOW'ED by their creative pizzas which included... More

I booked a reservation through open table on a Friday for a group of 14+. When we arrived, the manager on duty advised that they do not accept reservations on Friday and the attitude given with the response was not so pleasant. We had to beg her to allow us to sit in a area reserved towards the back of... More

Really tasty pizza and cool concept of choosing our own ingredients! We absolutely loved the taste, and everything about the pizza, real Italian style. I wish it was cheaper though.. The sound on the TV's was very high, made it a bit difficult to talk, and a little exhausting, but the taste of the pizza was so good, so I'll... More

For whatever reason, pizza in the East Bay is a series of disappointments. Sauce too sweet, cheese laid on too parsimoniously, and lord knows the crusts have issue after issue: too soggy, too soft, too thick. Other than true Italian style Gioia, there has been little to recommend pizza in Alameda County. But Build is a solid addition to the... More

We didn't make our own pizza - so I can't speak to what they are known for...the wine was nice, the pizza was good. There is a fried green bean appetizer....this season it is brussels sprouts - no mention of this "switch" from our server and they weren't tasty at all.

Build is a great place to hang out with friends. And it is interesting and fun to build/make your own pizza. By making, I mean, you can specify what toppings you like and they will put it together in front of you on their great home-made pizza crust. It is sort of cool to see how they play with the...
