Sammy's Woodfired Pizza: "A Local Favorite" Sammy's Woodfired Pizza Tip by jhoolko

Sammy's Woodfired Pizza, La Jolla: 1 reviews and 0 photos

This is the kind of place where you see everyone you know if you live in La Jolla. A southern California institution, it's a great place to go for pretty good food at a pretty good price (think a nicer, better California Pizza Kitchen). Sit outside if you can, around the big bonfire. They have a good selection of pizza, pastas, and other dishes, as well as an impressive list of "tapas" (aka appetizers attempting to be something more exotic). Their salads are huge and always a favorite.

Favorite Dish: Start with the mini duck tacos. They are excellent, and even suitable for a light meal on their own. Duck tomatoes, feta, sour cream, cabbage, and a delicious spicy mayonaisse sauce make for an irresistable combo when tucked inside six tiny hard taco shells.
