California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

: We have not once been disappointed by CPK. The list of two dozen, crispy-thin pizzas includes all the standards, but you'll also find inventive versions like wild mushroom, mango tandoori chicken and BLT---complete with mayonnaise. Our favorites are the roasted garlic chicken, with its garlic-shallot butter, and the barbecued chicken, the most popular of the pizzas. You can also design your own. If you can tear yourself away from the pies---we almost never can---try one of the pastas; we recommend the pesto cream penne or kung pao spaghetti (chicken and shrimp with hot red chiles, garlic, green onions and peanuts). Another Asian option, the crisp Chinese chicken salad, is satisfying. Salad portions are large, so keep in mind that you can get a half-order. Soups, appetizers, sandwiches made with hearth-baked focaccia and filling desserts (red velvet cake, butter cake and Key lime pie) round out the menu.
