Upland Pizza

  • w

I have finally found Pizza Nirvana. Please allow me to share this bit of Pizza bliss. Having lived in NYC during my days at the U.N., I miss good NYC Pizza, et voila.
This from the Daily Bulliten Newspaper:
San Biagio’s Pizza, 1263 W. Seventh St., Upland, (909) 946-9277 – Biagio’s has brought New York-style pizza to the Inland Valley. The huge slices baked to perfection by the Pavia family are a treat. Try the myriad other Italian favorites such as stromboli or calzone.

  1. make sure to follow up that pizza with some ice cream from Dr. Bob's. I don't have an address but i'm sure the folks at the restaurant know where it is.

      ok... had to look it up. this is some of the best American ice cream you'll ever have:

      Dr. Bob's HandCrafted IceCreams, Upland, 909.920.1966

        Dr. Bob"s Ice Cream: 155 E. C Street Upland.

    2. But Willi, have you actually eaten there, or are you just rehashing (I love chow puns) what the paper said. Am I going to have to go up to Upland and check it out?

        On the recommendation of a Brooklyn pizzaholic, we've been to San Biagio's for takeout. This place is definitely worth going out of the way for. We stopped by for their extra large sausage and garlic pie to take home to LA and reheat. Turned out pretty tasty. They also have a larger pizza, the next size up, called the Jumbo. We took home a couple of their really great cannoli. I'd rate their pizzas pretty high. Too bad this place is so far from where we live or we'd be there about once a week.

          Dear Inland Empire Bruder Chino Wayne. Not only did I eat there, I have not been able to stop thinking or talking about it since!

            OK, you have piqued my interest, I think I'll try and make it over there this weekend. A trip to Upland beats a trip to Monrovia for decent pizza. There may be hope for us out here in the wilderness after all.

            1. re: chino_wayne

              where in Monrovia is good Pizza?

                Domenico's, just order it with a "thin, thin" crust.

        2. Is this pizza place still around? Sounds like a good stop before we go to Bert n Rocky's Ice Cream, the true best ice cream in the area. Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip, oh baby!

          1. Last time I checked, they were still there, and why would you go to Bert n Rocky's when dr. Bob's is just down the street?


            1. Thanks for the posting! I am also going to try Dr. Bob's! I had his ice cream for the first time last week at Kellogg Ranch at Cal Poly's restaurant! It was delish!
