They do have good pastas. In particular I like the pepperoni pizza made in the traditional wood oven.

I absolutely recommend the BBQ Pizza, it is so delicious! Ordered delivery on a rainy night and it was at my doorstep in 20 minutes! English speaking staff is a plus, though had a confusing situation happen when the delivery driver arrived. He wasn't sure of the total and sighed about getting me change when I specifically told the man... More

A little bit of a trip to this fine place, but worth the trip. Yes it is across the 200 and about a ten minute walk. The pizza will be one of the best you will get in Bucerias. The pasta was cooked to perfection. The sauces for the pasta were varied and the flavours were top drawer. The service... More

The pizza was very good. People said their pasta was very good. Very noisy out side on a busy road. Service was good. Food out very fast . Not easy to find. Very Mexican dining.

We visited California Pizza a few weeks ago and the service, food and prices are excellent. The place has a unique atmosphere all it's own in the back area of Bucerias. I brought a bottle of wine and my friends wanted beer and one of the staff went to a store and brought the big brown bottles of Pacifico! I... More

I was so sad when they closed their second location in Bucerias but the experience of driving a short distance across the highway was well worth it. I absolutely love their vodka jalopeno pasta dish. It's enough for two meals and they serve it with homemade bread that is worth the trip all by itself. The staff doesn't speak much... More

Went with friends, moderately priced on a highway that takes away from the overall meal. With all the exceptional restaurants in Bucerias this is not one that we would return to. Food was good but not wonderful.

I had very good bowl of chicken pasta and my husband a chicken burger and fries. We decided to share both half and half as it was a big meal. Couldn't finish it and brought some home. The service was very good ( thank you Nathan) and we will be going back with our friends next weekend to introduce them... More

Went past the Bucerias location today December 14/15 and it was closed, closed, closed - outside walls and posts covered with signs indicating it was closed by the government. A Mexican friend of mine said it was closed by an arm of the government similar to the FBI! So sad to hear - was truly the best pizza in this... More
