This hole in wall pizza joint is in a quaint neighborhood that will make a visit to this area worth your time. The pizza can be bought by the slice or an entire pie can reward your taste buds. The crust is thin and crunchy....More

We love pizza! And we love Goia's pizza, because the ingredients are the best, the recipes are innovative but not over the top, and the service is friendly. Berkeley's blessed with a number of great pizza places, and Gioia is among them.

A small mostly carry out place with a few tables and chairs. They feature unusual vegetarian pizza combos, sometimes including mint and other nontraditional ingredients. Good, thin crust pizza. Order a pizza from Gioia's and hike up the hill to Indian Rock, where you can...More

By way of credentials: I was born in Brooklyn and grew up in Queens. Pizza was everywhere and usually consumed standing. Is this true Brooklyn pizza? Brooklyn has changed and probably has avocado on pizza by now. But if you want thin pizza in a...More

Great slices - mushroom (funghi) and sausage are my favorites. Some fun combos as well, such as the Julian - proscuitto cotta, red onion, chili flakes & mozzarella or the Butternut Squash with gorgonzola and gremolata. Pies can be unevenly prepared with a lot of...More

East coast transplant here, so glad I found this pizza place (they sell slices or pies) that is truly NYC-style (thin, floppy slices perfect for folding) but with Berkeley toppings (fresh, high quality produce) like plenty of earthy, fresh mushrooms piled on the Funghi, or...More

Is it good that such delicious pizza is within two miles of my home? Yes and no - for the obvious reasons. Which are our favorites - anchovy and hot pepper? mushroom? There are so many. Few choices, just a counter to eat in and...More

A great local place with fresh ingredients but our pepperoni pizza was too salty. Would go again and get vegetarian next time, the choices looked great!

Though it is possible to perch at the counter and eat their pizza, almost everyone who comes here walks off with a pie or ambles away munching on a slice. This is the block with a fish store, horticultural nursery, and produce market that are...More
