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.

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.

We ordered a mediterranean pizza. The crust was good on the outside crust but soggy in the middle.
I love their thin pizza but it needs to be more crispy.

Food was excellent. Mini pizza was more than I could eat. I had Mediterranean and it was very tasty. The Ceaser salad could have used some more oomph in the dressing. My wife had the chicken sandwich. Said it was delicious. But again more than she could eat. The semifreddo desert was tasty but the double scoops of whipped cream were not necessary.
Service was pleasant and accommodating but clearance of dirty dishes was slow or non existent. Our dinner and salad dishes were left in front of us when dessert was served.

We have dined at Willow Street Los Gatos many times, and we always enjoy it. On this visit, our server was Diamond, and her name suited her perfectly. She was warm, friendly, efficient, and conscientious without being intrusive. The food is always delicious, and the servings are large enough that we always take leftovers home for lunch.

We love Willow Street pizza. Such a cute place for weekday dining.

Only reason to remove a star under service was because we were told we ordered a lot of food. We had gift certificates to spend by the end of the month and wanted to use the majority of them so they didn’t go to waste. We knew we would have leftovers. Would have been nice if they asked if we’ve been there before first. Later realized the food was not as good reheating the next day.

We had a really ‘energetic’ group of high schoolers behind us. At one point, my husband and I couldn’t hear what the other was saying. I understand having a good time but at one point it would’ve been nice if their server checked on them to keep their voices at a lower volume.

Dinner was delicious. There were many young kids dining for a special occasion.
The server and manager were reassuring about the relatively slow service.
They did well despite the huge crowd there.
Romaine Salad was excellent as was the seafood linguine.

Willow Street is a consistently good restaurant - you will have a good experience each time you go.

The food is good. There is a nice selection of healthy and less healthy. There is a separate light section and a lot of information on calories.

The wait staff are good. The ambiance is only ok - typically pretty loud.

There is a nice bar area and a good selection of drinks.

We go on a regular basis.
