Dropped in here with a friend of mine while visiting San Diego. The space has an industrial decor but is comfortable. The restaurant combines a big city bar atmosphere with a restaurant, and it works. The music is just a bit loud but not terrible. The pizza is AMAZING!

Was recommended by a friend to check this place out. Definitely glad we did and my stomach approves this message. A little crowed with a wait during game day, though open seating/standing at the bar area. In the area, make this a stop to eat!
