    LOVE, LOVE their pizza, green beans, Cesar salad, mac & cheese. I want to order other items, but I keep coming back to what I've had before because they're sooo tasty. Servers very attentive. Make a ressie or come early - it gets busy by 6:30-7:00. Or use Open Table - an easy way to make sure you get in when you want. Easy parking also!

    Pizza Moda is the resurrected Fellini's with the same owner, Jeff Davis. The ambience is of a perfect neighborhood gathering spot. The food is Italianesque with the wonderful flexibility of substituting ingredients so several of the offerings can be gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian etc. The presentations are unassuming, generous and not light handed nor over the top saturated on the sauces, dressings etc.

    Great place, food was yummy and they even cater to vegans which is awesome. Only draw back was the day we went it was a warm day and it was BLAZIN HOT inside the restaurant. We had to step outside to cool down

    We were immediately and warmly greeted upon our arrival and our food arrived in a timely fashion. They served wonderfully fresh organic salads, with in-season ingredients that are both visually appealing and VERY tasty (we ordered 2 different ones...we couldn't decide, so lucky for us)! They even offer a vegan pizza!! We were pleased with our meal, and enjoyed their wine selection. We will definitely return. :)

    Down-to-earth menu with great choice of appetizers including the baby kale ceaser and the avocado citrus salad. Love the spaghetti with mussels and margarite pizza. Spectacular chocolate flour-less cake for dessert. Coffee is always excellent. Relaxed atmosphere and plenty of private parking.

    The food was very good, the service was great, it was an overall very good dinin experience. I would have given them 5 stars for the food but for me, it was a biy salty. This sentiment was also shared by my brother and my son who were with me at the time. Don't get me wrong, the food was very good but they could ease up on the sodium a bit. By the way we had 3 pizzas-- smoked salmon, shaved asparagus, and mushroom. I will be going back. Oh yeah and the service was great, friendly, attentive...

    For a nice central place to meet up with friends, this is our spot. It is near North Berkeley Bart, and has a parking lot. The menu is focused at pizza, pasta and seafood. For summer we start with the avocado and citrus salad, with a fall back to the caesar. Then choices: the sweet-pea ravioli or maybe the house smoked salmon pizza. With vegan friends we go for the smiling cow with great tasting vegan sausage & cheeses, does not taste like a compromise to have something vegan. All the pies can be made gluten-free, & they have a separate area for preparation & isolation (I have heard the discussion at other tables a few times) this attention to detail is important to many of their customers. Beats any sit-down pizza restaurant in Berkeley.
