No a cheap place, but with good quality pizza and great coffee. I took a quick stop here, looking for Italian food on Labor day, this one was the only one open...And pizza was really Italian one.

We stopped in for a quick coffee/bite after a show at one of the theatre. The staff and friendly and when we were there just GORGEOUS. We got the fresh orange juice which was delicious and a couple of snacks. I felt it was a little pricey but well worth it.

The focaccias, bocatas and others are definetely something to appreciate by any gourmet. Italian food at its best. They offer a good variety of beverages including real fresh orange juice!... More

The ambiance is relaxed, whether you are here to study or to socialize with friends. Parking is difficult since it is in the midst of downtown Berkeley. I... More

How hard is it to do a good latte? Apparently diabolically hard but the barista at Piq served up a winner. Combined with a cannolo - perfetto!

The caprese focaccia and torta nocciolata were both excellent. Fresh and tasty. The outside seating was cool and the free wifi was appreciated. I would recommend this cafe.

I love their coffee and the authentic italian atmosphere in the shop. The food is also great, maybe a bit pricy, but very good lunch food.
