Located in the heart of North Park, URBN Coal Fired Pizza/Bar is a 5,000 square foot warehouse on the corner 31st and University. Sister bar/restaurant to BASIC Urban Kitchen in the East Village, it has evolved to a coal fired pizza concept with craft pies, an expanded menu and a beverage program second to none. The thin-crust New Haven style pizza served at URBN will include everything from traditional pepperoni pizza to signature toppings like fried eggplant, gorganzola-stuffed peppers, fresh clams, and the famed mashed potato & pancetta. Expect the same warehouse-style ambiance and raw design that locals love about BASIC downtown.

Great coal fired pizza!!!!! Ingredients are good but way too many confusing pizza selections. It helps if you have visited the sister location Basic in East Village. Make it simple go with the red with mozzarella and add topics as you go. Can't go wrong with this pizza.

My wife and I searched "best gf pizza" in San Diego and this was what we landed on.

The gluten free crust here is homemade and a small pizza can feed 2 people (maybe add an appetizer if you're starving). Great thin crust - I don't eat GF but my wife has to (Celiac), and I even ate the edges of the crust! I rarely do that with GF Pizza.

One suggestion - order with extra cheese. They use a high-quality cheese but we would have liked more on it than it comes with standard.

Also, the restaurant is in a very fun location. If you haven't been to North Park, check it out!

Delicious Pizza, the meat & cheese board could use a little more bread.. it came with what looked like a dinner roll... one of them. Other than that, great quality stuff. Outstanding service by the entire staff.

The pizza was great and the server recommended a Pecan based beer which turned out to be fabulous.

Create your own Coal Fired Pizza with a deliciously crispy, thin crust and select a hand-crafted cocktail or micro brewed beer to go with it. Salads are sized to share and bursting with flavor. This neighborhood eatery get packed quickly, so be sure to make a reservation or arrive early.

After checking out the menu I couldn't wait to give this place a try. We started off with a house salad with greens, sliced apples, toffee and blue cheese crumbles and a a tangy dressing. It was great. Walnuts would have made it even better. I had the cherry pepper and sausage pizza with blue cheese. The crust was thin and crispy just the way I like it. The peppers were stuffed with blue cheese but not too much. I threw some arugula on for good measure and washed it down with a dry red wine recommended by the knowledgable and friendly server. I love this place and would definately recommend it.

In the past few years San Diego's pizza scene has vastly improved with the addition of several spots serving thin crust, Italian style (or New York style) pizzas. So happy to see them doing well. URBN's crust is wonderfully light and thin. We tried a not-so-small pepperoni and mushroom along with a white clam pizza. The P and M was just what we wanted and a bargain as a lunch special. The clam was a bit too salty, probably more from the parmesan than the clams. Don't think I'd order it again. They have a great beer selection as well as a unique list of wines. A full bar boasts several signature cocktails also.
We'd certainly go back again.

Loved the pizza. We went there at 5:30 and it was so noisy that we had to yell at each other because the music was turned up way too loud. Otherwise it was a great place.

Great vibes, good food, and an amazing wine list.

Polpetta Con Provolone Pizza (The cheese was delightful!)
Sauvignon Blanc | Semillon (A great blend. Definitely try this Australian wine)

This place would be great for a big group of about ten people for a special occasion!

Next time I am trying the coal fired wings. :)

Good food, good service, and good beers.
The wings were small and meat a little dry. The sauce was good.
The pizza was really tasty especially the mashed potatoe pizza.
Great Afternoon overall.
Highly recommend for guys brunch.

I came here with friends to try something new and was overly impressed. The pizzas we ordered were out of this world. Chicken alfredo and the BBQ Chicken stood out in flavor. Service was slightly slower than expected for the small crowd they had at the time, but she was very knowledgeable and accurate with her suggestions.

Offers a wide variety of "craft" pizzas, as well as the ability to build your own, all New Haven style. The salads and pizza are all HUGE.

I enjoy dining at URBN more so than Basic though the food selection is basically the same. I really really dig the couch seating (great for big groups) and it's not so loud in there that you can't hold a conversation (which is I often feel at Basic). The bourbon cocktail is killer! Love the spicy hot wings and the sausage stuffed pepper pizza. Will definitely be back again and again!

The menu is creative and ingredients are fresh. Urbn salad is one of the best I've tasted. Pizza crust is crisp and light, pizza sizes are larger than expected. Loved the local beers on tap.

Very cool vibe! Great pizzas that are very large. Homemade lemonade is delicious. Our server was very attentive and nice.
