A Passion for Pizza

What began in a little brick building on a busy street corner in Willow Glen has grown to become a South Bay tradition. When Willow Street opened its doors in 1991, pizza entered a whole new world. Individual size pizzas made to order, cooked in a wood-fired oven with an uncommon flavor. From the beginning, Willow Street made a commitment to take food quality and customer service to a higher level, and each day, at each restaurant location we raise the bar. Join us at our original location in Willow Glen, or in downtown Los Gatos. Wherever you go, know that you're in for a remarkable meal.

Always enjoy the food at Willow Street Pizza. We like to get the tried-and-true combo pizza and gorgonzola salad and share them between us. The wild mushrooms on the pizza made it particularly flavorful. The burger is awesome as well.

Raw pork chops. Bland fettuccini. Kids did not eat cheese pizza as they did not like it. Spaghetti was fine.

We took our son there for the first time and it was perfect. They were on time and we had a nice booth. My favorite is the Salmon, so great. My husband had the ravioli special and my son the salmon pasta which they both loved. It was extremely crowded but the service was great. This is our go to restaurant and I’m always happy with the food. I highly recommend Willow Street.

It was Halloween night in a town that goes crazy for Halloween. So I can’t really blame the restaurant for all the noise. The service was great and the food was fine for the price.

It took almost 20 minutes to just get a drink. I had a meeting in Los Gatos and went there from San Francisco, excited to try their pizza. The dough was not cooked properly and the pizza wasn't tasty at all. Our server was polite but too busy. It was my first time there, but the person I had to meet, lives in Los Gatos and She said last time she was there was a year ago and the pizza was bad and she didn't want to go back again But was under impression that I wanted to be there.
SO overall: if you want to go for a beer and watch a game, it's not bad. But as a restaurant, NOT GOOD

There were several of us "mature" ladies, and the staff accommodated us outside where we could hear each other better. The heaters kept us warm enough, and the staff were very attentive. Food was great, as always, and we will be back for our next book group meeting.

Great food, although I wish I'd known when I ordered iced tea it wasn't just plain black iced tea. It had some kind of tropical fruit flavor, I really didn't care for it

Great food, but if there are just a few guests tell them to stage your order. When it all comes a once it spoils the meal.

One of my favorite go to places that is unfortunately declining in quality from a food and service perspective. I’m not sure what’s happened in the last 4-6 months; but I hope they right the ship soon. I’m rooting for them.

We always eat here when our band performs in Los Gatos. The service is always good, and the food is good. Our only real complaint is that there is not an Espresso coffee option. We have to go to a coffee shop down the street.

Our party of ten wanted a early dinner before attending a concert at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga and for our first time trying out Willow Street Fired Pizza we were all pleasantly surprised of how nice the staff was to make our first experience along with a great selection on the drink and food menus and the outstanding service by our waitress Sunny such a wonderful experience.
We all look forward to coming back in the future for our dining options especially for future concert plans in Saratoga.

What used to be Avery busy restaurant now has many empty tables for a Saturday night. I ordered Penne Pasta with mushrooms and I only had 2 mushrooms. I also ordered light sauce but that didn’t happen. One other person in my party ordered the Rigatoni with sausage and it was very watery.

Food was not terrific - service was fantastic which helped. There were bees if you are seated outside I would sit inside. The food didn’t seem fresh and not flavorful. It’s too bad because it’s rare to find such great service.

Pizzas are handmade and always delicious with a perfect crust that's crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Beer and wine selections were perfect complements. We opted for the lunch combo of mini-pizzas and salads with an antipasto board, beer and wine for drinks, and good company. Perfect afternoon with friends! (We opted to sit indoors, but the patio is also a lovely option.)

The food is always great at Willow Street, and our table was perfect for our party of 5, in a corner outside so we could hear each other well in that "energetic" outdoor atmosphere on a beautiful Saturday. Service was a little slow at first but the place was jumpin and our waitress picked up pretty well after our initial drink order. It's a great place.

Our server Jenna was top notch! The restaurant is beautiful both inside and out and the food is very good with excellent options for kids. My daughter loved her salmon! The pizza was a little too salty.
