It's my 2nd day in SB and it's my 2nd trip to Pizza Guru. The Bodhi's BBQ is fantastic! I don't think you could order a bad pizza here. Friendly service and reasonable prices for a unique pizza!

A local pizzeria with a great selection of vegan options (including vegan cheese and various "meats"). Was very casual -perhaps a little messy - but staff were very friendly. Pizzas were delicious.

Thought we would venture away from hotel and needed a break from $25 per person meals. Ordered two pizzas, pasta, and salad. Salad was pretty good and feels good to support local growers. Pasta didn't arrive until the end of the meal although it was...More

Everything is made fresh, organic and locally grown. Best pizza ever from the topics to the crust. Love their salad dressings. Kid friendly. Inside and outside seating. They deliver to certain areas.

We enjoyed the salad but got the Nirvana (vege pizza) and added Pepperoni. I had high expectations because their menu looks great but I was a little disappointed in the pizza. It had a lot of great toppings but just wasn't too flavorful. They should...More

Yes, the pizza from Pizza Guru tastes better than pizza from Rusty's. It's less greasy and it is apparently made of local & organic ingredients. But, there is a price to pay -- both in actual dollars and in the we-don't-care-about-you attitude of the cashier...More

Got picky people to purchase pizza for? There are more choices here than you can shake a stick at. This is not your grandfather's pizza joint. Trick out your pizza to maximize what is healthy about pizza. It's still delish! Or go decadent if you...More

Really good crust and a lot of quality topping choices. I went with a chicken, bacon, and roasted red pepper pie with garlic white sauce. It's a solid choice for pizza but won't blow your mind. Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars, closer to really...More
