Some people rave about this place, but they must have been here when it was under different management or maybe certain staff members give better service and make the food drastically better than when I have visited. When I visited, the service was slow/poor and...More

If this place is an institution and one of the best places for pizza then the good people of San Jose have all been severely denied good food. Where to begin,,,,? The restaurant is greasy and is more like an older version of Chuck E...More

House of Pizza has become a Downtown San Jose institution. Don't really know how long it has been open, but must be 40 years anyway. Not your typical pizza -the toppings are actually under the cheese and little sauce, but folks love it and you...More

50 years has not changed this place. Maybe slowed a little. Confusion still the go to default pizza. Inside same, overall good place, just getting long in the tooth. Plenty parking . Still pretty reasonable. Served in front where you make order.

This place looks and feels tired. Pizza was OK/average and staff friendly but the owners need to spend some money on updating it, it's not exactly inspiring! The pizza base a little sloppy but flavour was good. I didn't quite get the ordering system, I...More

Tradition since 1950, fun and tasty pizza joint with bar. Rustic atmosphere, you order pizza in back. Pizza loaded and square cut. Known for the "Confusion" which is their version of a combo. You can eat well for a fair price, plenty of parking too.

Been going here since 1980's before they moved to this location. It's consistently GREAT. Not your "normal" average pizza - So much better.
