Although for New York Style pizza you can't beat Jimmy Slice on MainStreet Downtown, The Ca pizza kitchen is great at their style too. Thin, different and fun. The portions are small so order enough or great when you want a quick bite and not a feast. Every time I go it;s busy, upbeat and buzzing.. but still it's big... More

Nice atmosphere, roomy, with great service. Varied menu with interesting pizza choices that are not what you would see in a traditional Italian restaurant. Their pizzas are light and flavorful. And yes, they have a large menu of food along with their pizzas. My favorite is their Chicken Piccata, which is covered with capers in a lemony cream sauce over... More

My wife and I used to frequent this CPK at least once a month but about a year ago it seems that they changed their menu to include cheaper menu items and it is now full of riff-raff and screaming kids. The service is horrible now! Not worth the headache!

The Ventura CPK has been nicely updated & has a nice modern vibe! We enjoyed the new menu. I had a roasted vegetable sales. It was perfect. Nice warm veggies & cold romaine lettuce. Mike had a lunch combo. A small pizza & bowl of soup. We had a very nice lunch. Good waiter & great service. We will definitely... More

We love coming on Monday nights for dinner. There is seldom a wait for a booth and we enjoy celebrating meatless Mondays with the "best in town" thin crust Margarita Pizza preceded by a soup and one of their many salads. Yum! The reception is always warm, the waitstaff are courteous and they are quick to make your meal enjoyable.... More

Our church has been partnering with CPK for over a year. Besides raising money for the various charities, be get to experience CPK food two or three times a month. It's not just great pizza, they have wonderful pasta and appetizers. The service is great, as is the management team Austin and Matt are the best!
