Italian
La Pizzeria is a cozy and pleasant spot where you can feel the story and the dedication of its owners along with the strong ties that they have kept with their hometown. Rome inspires its menu. You can find the traditional recipes of the area such as Spaghetti Aglio e Olio and the typical Roman-style pizza. A wide choice of traditional Italian dishes plus a full bar with Italian special cocktails and drinks, and a real Italian espresso, making La Pizzeria the best place to experience the authentic taste of Italian cuisine. Now open also in Cupertino after the great success of the Campbell location.

Booked reservations for a large group for the holidays. Requested to sit outside and with the heat lamps it was perfect. Great food and service. Loved that it wasn't crowded, especially during COVID.

Very good food and service. It’s a neighborhood restaurant in a strip mall. I would suggest they have dimmer lighting for the dinner crowd.

Went here for team lunch. Requested and received outdoor searching. Staff setup 3 space heaters to make us comfortable on chilly afternoon. Food arrive quickly and was tasty. All the dishes from "Italian Soda" to Spagetti/Pizza to Dessert were excellent. Service was quite good too. Overall, good experience and highly recommend it.

Glad to have a non chain Italian restaurant in Cupertino. The service was great, the menu offered an excellent selection of starters, pasta, and pizza. Traditional entres were very limited, and the dessert menu had something for everyone. Will be going again for sure.

Birthday dinner for our grandson this visit. Out favorite (summer) citrus salad wasn’t on the menu, so we passed on salad. Our lasagnes (3) were amazing as usual. Tiramisu is to die for. It was a Wednesday night, and the ten of us were able to relax and visit—there was no rushing us at any point. We love this place!

Really excellent pizza and pastas. And they serve salads. Probably the best pizza in the South Bay. Not a full Italian restaurant - they have salmon and lamb chops. but do not offer veal, steaks, chicken, etc. Some pizzas may come with salmon, ham, salami, chicken, etc.

They do not offer pepperoni and serve salami on the pizzas instead.

The pizza was good but their version of Margherita is quite different from what you usually expect. Service was very, very slow due to short of staff, but the manager was very friendly and accommodating.

This was our first visit to La Pizzeria in Cupertino, and it was wonderful. After splitting a Caesar Salad, we shared and thoroughly enjoyed the Napoli pizza and Spaghetti Aglio & Olio. The taste, flavors, and style were all reminiscent of our meals in Rome. La pizza era perfetta!... crust, sauce, cheese, and anchovies made for a delightful taste combination. The use of olive oil on the spaghetti made it light and very tasty. While the owner was apologetic for the staffing shortage, the service was still excellent. We will be back soon for another wonderful dinner.

I am hesitant about writing a review because the owner does not seem to take criticism professionally (checkout responses on Yelp!) . I would give 3 1/2 stars if I could. Food was pretty good. Loved the arancini because they were tasty and bite sized; however they were presented on a plate of undressed greens which we did not care for. I requested a bit of marinara to dip them in and ended up getting a charge for $3 for that. In my opinion it would be better to serve the rice balls with marinara rather than the greens. We quite liked the marinara. What I have to say is what we did not like is that we ordered the arancini, a burrata salad and a margarita pizza to share and ended up receiving everything at once. It also took a bit too long to get waited on. The margarita pizza was very good. We also did not like that only one of the workers were masked up

First time we heard that our food is not authentic. And thank God you are the only one saying that. Are you sure you had dinner at La Pizzeria and not at one of those “wanna be” Italian restaurants?

We had a reservation and decided to show up early for a cocktail. We sat at the bar and were served immediately. The restaurant was clean, very friendly atmosphere, and the servers were exceptional. We had the rosemary focaccia as an appetizer and the salmon for dinner. Both were delish!! We will definitely go back.

First time dining here. We sat on the outdoor patio and heat lamps are available if needed. Tables were nicely spaced and the view of the hills from the patio was quite nice to dine to. The service was attentive. The food portions Are generous in the price point similar to most other quality pizzerias in the bay area.

My partner and I decided to go out and have a last minute date night. Luckily, there was a spot open to reserve a table here and we decided to take it! The host greeted us right away and we got our table in less than a minute. We were greeted by our waitress, Steph, who was delightful! The food was amazing! We ordered the Gnocchi, garlic bread and Prosciutto Arugula pizza. They were both so fulfilling and delicious. We would definitely come back here again :-)
