We try to go to local restaurants when we travel so we wanted pizza. It was much better than we expected we are from new york so we have high standard for pizza. The ravioli was very good but the sauce was ok.

We happen to live in the area so frequently get food to go from Crust. The pizza is very good & the salads are fresh & tasty. We have occasionally dined in and my only criticism is that it can get real noisy. It's a great place to take a family. Friendly service, food is priced fairly.

Hi Jan G. Thank you for your review. It does get noisy in restaurant, I have tried sound boards changed our speakers. I find dining later or the patio are options to help. We at Crust appreciate your business, Thank You again! More

Without any doubt the best pizza you'll find in and around SD. This italian restaurant with its unique pizzas and other great meals (such as Charlie's meatballs, incredible salads or pasta) is a 'must-go' when in (or close to) Carlsbad. The owner says it is his passion to make pizza and you can definitely taste this. They also have very... More

Strongly recommend and well worth the wait. The bartender, local beer and pizza were above average! If in the area strongly recommend!

We decided to dine for brunch post baptism. The wings were crunchy and had a hint of rosemary flavor. The hot chili sauce completed the experience. The meatballs were seasoned with just the right amount of heat. The vodka penne chicken needed a bit more salt to accent the flavor profile.

Tasty pizza and salads, half price wine on WWednesdays! We love that this restaurant is just blocks from home. Unfortunately the service is lacking. We wait forever after being seated for anyone to wait on us. We have had to ask 2-3 times for water I'm not sure they will bother to fix their service unless business slows down! Busy... More

We love this place - it's always busy in the evenings, super family friendly and the food is reliably tasty! Chopped salad is my favorite but most people come for the pizzas!

Talk about a place who has made a great effort to offer GF dining options to their guests...Crust has done an amazing job of providing many choices. My 10" GF Emily pizza was so good that my colleagues had no idea that they were eating GF pizza. The staff were very friendly, engaging and attentive, which made for great service.... More

A friend had suggested I try Crust Pizza, just off Rancho Santa Fe Road. I am a great pizza fan and had honestly thought our local guy had the best pizza for our needs. That was until I decided to try Crust last night. It was close to 9pm and after a long and busy day, we just wanted something... More
