Well, went back here after 2 years and the quality and food is just as good. Some are right in saying it is not the place to go to get your "average" pizza. The crusts are thinner, the ingredients are not piled on, but you can customize any ... more

I happen to like California Pizza Kitchen. True, you don't get a pizza with pepperoni, cheese and sauce like a regular pizza restaurant, but you do get exceptionally good pizzas. The salads here are great too! I usually go with a friend and ... more

We ate at the original before it was a chain and we liked it then and still do. I still would pick CPK over a lot of other places. Really like the shrimp pizza and their chopped salad.When are you coming to Marin?

Yes, it's trendy, it's yellow, it's one of those chain restaurants with a t-shirt and a cookbook - but oh, is the food good. Note, please: it is not "Pizza" Kitchen, it is "California Pizza" Kitchen. You don't get cheese and pepperoni at CPK, you ge ... more

Although Cal. Pizza has a good selection of gourmet pizzas, I usually order take-out pasta. My favorite is the Broccoli/Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta w/spaghetti noodles rather than the standard fusilli noodles. Other favorites include the Potato Leek Soup ... more

Definitely not your typical pizzas. My favorite is the Peking Duck on the honey wheat crust (if you like duck, you should try this). The pasta with garlic cream sauce is really good, especially with shrimp. The checca appetizer is also really t ... more
