It must be a state of mind, or the water. I lived in Seattle and there are some good pizza places like Pagliacci. Now that I’m (back) in San Diego there are two great places. Bronx Pizza and Lido’t Italian Food… a real roadtrip gem.
Here are the web sites.. gotta check out Lido’s… http://www.lidositalianfoods.com/ Many people go their for their ribs. They are good, but then again we don’t have enough BBQ out here in CA. So anyone thinkin’ of opening a BBQ joint, git out here!
And the walk up pizza rave of locals and NY transplants… http://www.bronxpizza.com/
