Round Table PizzaPosted: December 15, 2008 | Author: admin | Filed under: Restaurants | 1 Comment »
Perhaps it’s sad to say that Round Table Pizza is the best pizza in San Leandro – but after tasting most of them, that is my conclusion.
Round Table Pizza is relatively new to me. I think I’d eaten at the restaurant a couple of times, years and years ago, and the pizza hadn’t made much of an impression. Then I had it at my friend Charlotte’s house a few weeks ago, and I was surprised at how good it was (as I said, better than anything else in San Leandro). I had it again in a pizza buffet during a trip, and finally a couple of days ago when I had nothing in the house to cook and we were too lazy to go shopping. It was good.
The kids got the plain cheese pizza ($17 for a medium, probably 12-14″), and that was fine, though nothing terribly special. They liked it quite a bit, though, but I don’t know that they are that particular. I thought it was terribly, terribly overpriced, however. Alas, that’s what they eat, so I’m not sure there is anything I can do about it.
I had the Maui Zaui (ham, bacon, pineapple, tomatoes, red and green onions, with 3 cheeses), and it was positively delicious. I particularly liked the bacon, but all the toppings were very nicely balanced. I definitely would order it again. I had it again the next day (microwave for 30″ per slice), and it was good, though of course not as much as they day before. Surprisingly, the pizza was only $2 more than the plain pizza.
I will probably order again from Round Table. The only thing that makes me hesitant are the prices. After tax and tip, the two relatively small medium pizzas came to $42 – more than the cost of a dinner out for the four of us, and this didn’t include drinks.
