Pizza today for lunch

Wanting to try good artisan pizza while we are visiting your lovely city. We were thinking Buona Forchetta since they seem only to serve lunch on weekends. Is there a better choice? We have also thought about Pizzaria Bruno, Napoleone Pizza House, Project Pie. Would love opinions. We are looking for good Neapolitan style-thin crust.....yum getting hungry.

Here's the article I saw:

  1. Go for Buon Forchetta or Bruno's, those two are the best in the central area IMO.

    1. BF and Bruno's are excellent choices.

      Yes, Project Pie is another direction.

          Cafe Calabria doesn't serve their pizza until 5pm, or I would have mentioned it. I think their pizza has been better than what Bruno's has been putting out for the last 6 months.

            Thanks for reminding me about Cafe Calabria-I will put it on the list in the next week or so to try for an early dinner and to pick up some ground coffee :)

        2. Today, with the nice sunny warm weather, would make Buona Forchetta my first choice.

            So we just came from Buona Forchetta! You were all right-with the nice weather we enjoyed the patio. We got mesmerized into trying the pizza with the potatoes and prosciutto before I realized that it wasn't one of the pizzas with totmato sauce-so that gives me a good excuse to go back :) How is the rest of their stuff-pastas, etc.?

            thanks again!

              Haven't had pasta here, but I've enjoyed their Sophia and Nicola pizzas.

                That place is truly a gem. They also make a surprisingly good calzone.

                  I agree.

                  I suppose one coud say that since BF arrived there, San Diego's dining scene got just a little better.

                    Sometimes I think we need to just enjoy what we *do* have and not lament what we don't.

                    Grass isn't always greener ... well, unless you're in Colorado.
