This was my first visit to this restaurant and it met all the raves my co-worker gave me about it. I also was intrigued by the New Orleans BBQ shrimp item on the menu. I tried the Big Sexy and the BBQ shrimp on a night I was bacheloring it. The BBQ shrimp was't what I expected. A little to... More

Unfortunately, can't speak for the pizza but both the service and dessert was phenomenal. Dominic was really chill and just helpful in general. I'll have to make a trip back for the pizza.

This message is for the owner. We just ate at Crust Pizza on Saturday night and came away in disappointment and shock. While the food we received was fantastic, the service was not. Our appetizer came after our pasta and our pizza never came. When we were done drinking our drinks and eating all of our food, I had to... More

I don't eat pizza because of the gluten factor, however my friend convinced me that Crust had much more that just pizza. She was absolutely correct. This is a great place for a nice lunch. They have sandwiches, soups, and salads, pastas, AND pizza. I am a huge fan of salads, so I settled on a California Wedge salad with... More

We try to go to local restaurants when we travel so we wanted pizza. It was much better than we expected we are from new york so we have high standard for pizza. The ravioli was very good but the sauce was ok.

We happen to live in the area so frequently get food to go from Crust. The pizza is very good & the salads are fresh & tasty. We have occasionally dined in and my only criticism is that it can get real noisy. It's a great place to take a family. Friendly service, food is priced fairly.

Hi Jan G. Thank you for your review. It does get noisy in restaurant, I have tried sound boards changed our speakers. I find dining later or the patio are options to help. We at Crust appreciate your business, Thank You again! More

Without any doubt the best pizza you'll find in and around SD. This italian restaurant with its unique pizzas and other great meals (such as Charlie's meatballs, incredible salads or pasta) is a 'must-go' when in (or close to) Carlsbad. The owner says it is his passion to make pizza and you can definitely taste this. They also have very... More

We decided to dine for brunch post baptism. The wings were crunchy and had a hint of rosemary flavor. The hot chili sauce completed the experience. The meatballs were seasoned with just the right amount of heat. The vodka penne chicken needed a bit more salt to accent the flavor profile.

Tasty pizza and salads, half price wine on WWednesdays! We love that this restaurant is just blocks from home. Unfortunately the service is lacking. We wait forever after being seated for anyone to wait on us. We have had to ask 2-3 times for water I'm not sure they will bother to fix their service unless business slows down! Busy... More
