If I could eat Graziano's Pizza everyday, I would. Coming to Southern California, by way of Upstate, NY and then with a brief stint in the home of Pizza, Firenze and Napoli, I have been searching out the best pizza in the area for a while. And this is it! Bottom line; it was damn good. The sauce was a bit sweet, which I usually am not a fan of, but it countered the saltiness of the meat perfectly. The cheese brought the entire deal together. The crust was just perfect, tasted fresh. For being such a heavy pizza the crust was light when you bit into it, but held up great to the weight of the pizza. Cannot rave about this pizza enough. While we were finishing our meal, the owner came out to ask us what we thought of the pizza. He was definitely a cool guy. They take a lot of pride in their pizza, and it shows. So here's to you Grazianos, thanks for bringing great pizza to So Cal.
Graziano's is great! All their food is really good.
I like to get their antipasto salad with ranch and Italian dressing, they're great together. They make their own Italian dressing there and it's delicious.
Last time we went we got 2 pizzas and a meatball sandwich. The meatball sandwich was awesome as usual. My buddy and I split that and then it came time to devour the pizzas. The first pizza we got pepperoni and olive and the second one we got pepperoni and green peppers. Both of those were awesome! It was cooked to perfection and the peppers they use are very very good.
On my first visit I tried a peperoni and sausage pizza. In my book this is the barometer by which all pizza's are measured. If you can't hang with the simplest of simple you can't hang at all. My regret from that day is that I only purchased a medium. After inhaling it - I realized that I was missing out on a RB staple. I had to come back.
Come back I did. This trip had me ordering a Graziano's special and a white pizza with chicken and galic. They were heavenly.
You need to give this place a try
This place is consistently good. They make the best pizza crust pizza in San Diego. Their toppings are always fresh, and they aren't stingy with them either! My favorite is their blue cheese pizza. There garlic bread sticks are better than Pat & Oscars!!
Oh, and anything with their meatballs is guaranteed to be amazing...on spaghetti or in a sandwich.
The atmosphere is laid back, and it can get crazy on some nights.
I just found out about this place. My friend told me about it and was surprised I had not been here. Let me tell you the place is a little old on the inside, but the food is excellent. Pizza - Great. Pasta - Great. Salad - cold and crisp.
No delivery - booo - but I go and pick up faster than I can get delivery.
Found Grazianos Pizzeria the other day and what a find it was. My family loves it. Excellent pizza and great family specials. Everyone in the Rancho Bernardo / Poway area of San Diego needs to know that this is the place to take your kids and have a high quality value priced meal.

I went here to meet some friends. I had a pizza and it was out of this world good. My friend was surprised that I had not heard of Graziano's before. This pizza is better than Round Table Pizza, better than Filippi's, better than Bronx, better than Sweet Home Chicago!! I have them all and I know what I am talking about. Older style restaurant - has that red check table top - and wooden beams. Service is great fast and friendly....although it is counter service and not waiter.
This is some of the best pizza I have had in many years. Large restaurant with the old fashion red checker top tables. A must for pizza lovers! They have many family specials as they tend to draw the families in who want a lot of food for a decent price. Some nights are full with family and sports teams. Can be fun and can be loud. If you want upscale waiters and high priced mixed drinks, look elsewhere.
The pizza at Graziano's isn't as good as I remember it being when I was younger, but it's still decent. This restaurant has been around since the Bernardo Heights neighborhood was new, they have a great location, right across the street from the High School and there isn't much else there!
This place has lots of potential to be great. First of all, it's pretty big on the inside. They have small televisions throughout too, so it would potentially be a great place to watch games ... if only the televisions were bigger. They do serve beer as well, and it's reasonably priced. The food is fine -- pretty good pizza. And their sandwiches are good too.
This is the absolute best restaurant in the. We order out from here about once a week. Their dishes are authentic and fresh. 99% of the time we order for pick-up, so I can't say much for the "dining" experience.
The ricotta cheese pizza - white pizza is what they call it - is, in my opinion, the best pizza on their menu. It is delicious! Their eggplant and the chicken parm are two of my solid faves. Their tiramisu is also fabulous. This local establishment is fantastic and definitely deserving of you giving it a try.
Pros: Tasty food both pizza and pasta
Cons: outdated interior
I found this place after a friend of mine mentioned it to me.
I was bitchin about there being no good pizza place in Poway / Rancho Bernardo and he said try Graziano's Pizzeria.
I thought the only time I would ever get good pizza was when I went back and visited family in Chicago. I was hooked at first bite! We ended up eating here about 4 times the next month. I am now a regular.
I usually get a peperoni, sausage and muschroom. It's the best! The sausage has just the perfect amount of spice in it and the peperoni is awesome. I have not had better sauce. Seriously like others have said you could almost drink the stuff its so good.
One of the true tests of a pizza and its quality is how good is it when you heat it up the next day. This pizza loses almost nothing! I always buy a large so I have a few slices left over for the next day.
Everyone that works there is super nice. Great place for a large party too!
Pros: Pizza and Pasta
Cons: no delivery
This place gets super crowded with youth sports teams on Friday evenings. Their pizza is very tasty and the ingredients are high quality. We enjoy the Spinach Tomato Basil style pizza. For the Chargers football game we had some friends over and we ordered two 24" pizza's, one monster and one bbq chicken and all of our guests liked the food. The BBQ chicken flavor was a little overpowering at first and a bit on the sweet side, but the flavor does grow on you. They sliced the large 24" pizza's in manageable squares and not super skinny long wedges like some places do. The price was a little high in my opinion, but it is probably representative of the location and the quality of ingredients used in the pizzas.
Pros: Great Flavor
Cons: No delivery
The pizza at Graziano's Pizzeria is some of the best I have had. The cheese is creamy, the sauce is tasty and the crust is a real flavorful crust. I suggest to put this place in your pizza rotation....but once you have had it, you will never eat any other pizza again!
Pros: great pizza
Cons: can be very busy, no delivery
I just love this place. It is old school style and it is GREAT. No delivery, but I can drive to Graziano's, pick up my order, and be back at home eating before the other places deliver! Give it a try, you will not be disapointed.
Pros: Great pizza and tasty marinara - big portions!
Cons: older decor - can be very busy with kids
This is by far the best pizza I have had in many many year living in San Diego. Grazianos pizza is like pizza used to taste before it all became corporate crap....or worse! If you have a family, Grazianos is they pizza place for your family. If you want to eat at a trendy decor place, this is not it. But the food is better than you will find a any 'oo la la' place!!
Pros: Pizza of course
Cons: Old style decor, no waiters
Graziano's pizza was surprisingly good. Many times when I go to a pizza / Italian restaurant, the pizza is only so-so. Not the case here...this is some great pizza. I will come back more now that I know this place is here.
Pros: The Pizza - Wow
Cons: Old decor, not waiters
It has been a long time since I had pizza like this. There is actually flavor in the dough, sauce, cheese and toppings. If you live in the area and like pizza, you must try this place out.
Pros: Best Pizza I have had
Best pizza I have had in years!
