    This place is always packed at lunchtime. The chicken salad is good. I asked for pepperoncinis on the side. I tried the mini Pepperoni and Jalapeno pizza. I was full after two slices. Good Pizza. With a friendly staff. I ordered the pastrami sandwich today. Look's like it can use a little more meat.

    Great Pizza 🍕 Large dining area... and almost all the tables were being used. I did see lots of them eating different pasta plates. Second time going there and felt the pizza was even better than the first time.

    Been going there for years and it's always good. Today I got the lasagne on the lunch special. It came with a small salad and garlic bread for about $8.99. The lasagne arrived piping hot and (after it cooled) it was very tasty. Probably one of my favorites on the menu, first being the Italian sandwich (amazing fresh bread). I always look forward to D'Caesaro's and it always delivers. 👍I completely recommend this restaurant. Look for the picture of Jay Leno on the wall next to the condiments and soda machine. It's not a million years old either, about 8 years ago I heard he was in town for a local car show and wanted some Pizza.🍕

    We went around 3 PM. on a Friday. We paid around $60. We ordered 2 of the largest pizzas. On one pizza, we ordered half cheese and half pepperoni and pineapple. On the other, We ordered Supreme. The pizza was delicious. I enjoyed it because they were very generous with the cheese, which was very stringy. It had great flavor, and the bread was thick, but not as thick as like a deep dish. It's a self-serve type of restaurant. All they bring out is the pizza to your table. You order your pizza at the counter and serve your own drinks, silverware, and peppers. The vibe was very quiet. I wish they had music or something playing. It's a decent sized restaurant that fits maybe 50 people. And it looks very traditional. Overall, I enjoyed the experience but mostly the pizza.

    Let me first start by saying, the pepperoncinis are the absolute best! They taste as if they are freshly grown in the finest fields of Italy. Packed with juice, overflowing like the Niagara Falls!The color, almost as if painted by Picasso himself. The staff is amazing and friendly. The pizza, I'd trade my first born child for. If I had 3 thumbs, I'd give this place 3 thumbs up

    Great tasting food! Seems like a popular place, lots of people there to pick up their orders. You are able to sit inside and enjoy your food as well. We ordered the All meat Large pizza(yumm), family size antipasto salad(so good)wings(spicy and great tasting) and mozzarella sticks(yummy as well). Came out to about $48. For a family of 4 (3 males and 1 female) we had leftovers. I would definitely recommend coming here!

    1st time here. I live in Perris,CA area. Trust me I will be coming back. The smell of the pizza dough wow 👌. My brother comes here every Friday. Because of him, they now have me as a customer. Pizza and salad. Go try it for yourself.

    The food is good but one of the women at the counter basically asked me to move while I was looking at a menu so the people behind me could order, and there really is no where to move to. The place is kinda cramped and the way she re said it was rude. Maybe she was having a bad day but that kinda turned me off from going back to this restaurant.

    I love this pizzeria the employees are wonderful and the pizza and sandwiches are on the top of my go to places. If you haven't been you must check them out great local place

    Great service, I bought a pepperoni pizza for my daughter and had to come back for more the next day, it was delicious. We also tried the spaghetti on the lunch menu, price was under $10 it came with spaghetti, garlic bread, a drink, and a side salad. I thought I was a great deal.

    I have been coming here for years but haven’t been here since before the pandemic. Just visited again today and had to leave a review. If you're looking for an amazing pizza place that provides great pricing, fantastic food, and an atmosphere that makes you feel like you're visiting a relative's house, then look no further than this gem. In the midst of the current state of inflation, this pizza place has managed to maintain prices that won't break the bank, making it a great budget-friendly option for date night or family dinner. But it's not just about the price! The food here is incredible, with a menu that has something for everyone. Whether you're a meat lover or prefer veggies on your pie, the toppings are always fresh, and the crust is the perfect balance of soft and crispy. The staff here makes you feel welcomed and appreciated. From the moment you walk in the door, you're treated like family, and that's not something that you can find just anywhere. Overall, I highly recommend this pizza place to anyone looking for a fun, affordable dining experience with amazing food, friendly staff, and a cozy atmosphere that feels just like home.

    This was the best pizza I have had in over 14 years. The pepperoni...........omg 😋, and the cheese is like something you see on t.v. Like the pizza commercials, and you say that not real, no pizza 🍕 lools like that. Well, here it is, people. They are very polite and welcoming. This was my first time eating there, and I've lived over here for over 8 years 😏 shame on me. Stop over there. It's a quaint little place, not fancy, just cozy. They are putting out some serious food and great personalities.

    Yallll… this place is BOMB! The main reason why we came here was because of the awesome ratings so we def had to try it out. Especially with me being from out of state & me being a foodie to say the least 😝 We had a chicken with pineapple pizza (not pictured) and a regular cheese pizza. It was so good. The texture puffy and filling! Good pizza all around + there’s plenty of other Italian favorites to choose from if not in the mood for pizza

  • 5/5 S G. 1 year ago on Google
    Just tried this place for the first time. They were lightning fast despite having posted that they were short staffed. We couldn't tell if they were. The food was great and affordable priced, and the staff amazing!! Would definitely recommend it if you are looking for fresh delicious pizza and pasta.

  • 3/5 Mytao W. 1 year ago on Google
    Bread is to doey! The toppings here are full of flavor and easily the best part of the pizza. My only issue is that the “bread” (dough) is off. Something about the bread is to chewy or not cooked Right. Hard to put my thumb on it. The vegetarian sandwich is pretty bomb. If you like cheese. Lol

  • 1/5 Gionni G. 7 months ago on Google
    Horrible came from fontana at 630 and Counter lady said she had no pizza available or dough aswell Think every pizza place should have dough

  • 5/5 Sheila Z. 1 year ago on Google
    Hands down, this place has the best pizza in Riverside. Their prices are fair and the quality of their product is really good. If you are taking your food home, I strongly recommend calling it in first cause they tend to get busy, especially on Friday nights.

  • 1/5 Crissy A. 1 year ago on Google
    So disappointed and dissatisfied! I wanted to enjoy the pizza based on the pictures I seen and the pizza looked so good! I ordered the D’Caesaro special! Toppings fell off the pizza! Wasn’t properly cooked so the dough didn’t rise and was gummy and flat under the toppings looked like raw dough. It was really wet & oily. Money wasted even my 4 year old didn’t eat her slice. Cheese wasn’t melted it just wasn’t cooked right. Pizza still sitting on my island. Wasted $22!!! I was so upset at the money I wasted I didn’t take any pics of the liquid before it dried up and the doughy bread. But I will not be back. Turned me off.

    I stopped in for Spaghetti and Meatballs. You order at counter and lovely waitress brings your order, or you can take TO GO. The meal was excellent and the family that runs this place is friendly. I brought home ravioli and this is great tasting food at a very reasonable price. Please try, you will not be disappointed.😃😀

  • 4/5 Lourdes K. 1 year ago on Google
    The pizza is Delicious! Dining in is not something I'll do again. The entire restaurant needs a lot of upgrades or at least deep cleaning the carpet, new curtains and a coat of paint. Again, the best pizza in town and nice service!

  • 4/5 Rachael V. 1 year ago on Google
    The line to order was short. Staff was professional. The restaurant smelled nice like fresh from the oven dough. Prices are good. There was a nice variety of menu items. Food was ready in a reasonable time. I wanna go back and try the pizza.

  • 5/5 Greg M. 2 years ago on Google
    Ok, if you're looking for high cuisine, upper crust ambiance, or candle center pieces, this ain't your place. BUT, if you're looking for a good pizza joint with lasagna, manicotti, and the like, this is it. They have solid fare served up by friendly staff, with quick service to get you in and out (if that's what you're looking for).

  • 5/5 Steve T. 2 years ago on Google
    Food is a bit pricier than the big boys but it's like home cooking - Great home cooking. Will be going back again soon. Busy place and delicious food

  • 5/5 Conrad W. 3 years ago on Google
    If you want great Italian home-style dining, better try this restaurant. The most delicious kinds of pasta and pizzas in town were served. It was their food to die for. The room was so clean and spacious. The atmosphere of its location was captivating. It feels like Italy is where you are. Staves were very helpful and welcoming. A must-visit restaurant in the city for pasta.

  • 5/5 RAMON G. 2 years ago on Google
    Always great service, the people that work there always have a great attitude and always working hard. This is by far the best Pizza in all of Riverside I've been coming here for over 18 years... I still drive 25 mins at least once a month just to get some great pizza... You won't be dissapointed

  • 5/5 Tricia I. 2 years ago on Google
    They have great sandwiches and when I order chicken parmesan I get an actual piece of chicken not some Tyson patty wannabe. Will always so this place love and support. Choose them over piatros.
