These pizzas are enormous and a great value. The vibe is relaxed and great for dining or just chilling.
Look elsewhere. Because this is GREAT pizza, service, and atmosphere. Enough said! Go here and you won't be disappointed.
We loved Prado. we got there after lunch was served and before dinner so we ate off the Bar menu and it was fabulous and plenty of delicious food. We both had our own tappas and shared and it was more than enough food. Great beer on tap too.
This restaurant lives up to their name. Nothing fancy, just good pizza. Trip Advisor rates it very high in comparison to all SD restaurants, and it is good, but perhaps a bit over-rated in that respect. We ate ALL of our pizza, but I wouldn't call it the best I've ever had. It is, however, worthy of your time.

The pizza here is BASIC but -soooo so good!! I love the atmosphere and it appears everyone in San Diego feels the same. It is always packed yet we have never had to wait for a seat. A must place to visit and very reasonably priced.
I decided to try Basic based solely on the previous reviews on TripAdvisor and I must contend that it lived up to the hype. Previously it was ranked as #2 in San Diego but has since slipped to #5. The pizza was outstanding! Hands down some of the best I have had in a long time. They serve thin crust... More
We had dinner here based on the TA reviews and once again they were spot on. I grew up in Chicago, worked at one of the top pizza restaurants in the city and I can honestly say that this is one of the better pies that I have had in quite some time. The name says it all - pizza... More
