California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

: We have not once been disappointed by CPK. The lengthy list of hand-tossed and crispy-thin pizzas includes all the standards, but there are also inventive versions, such as roasted artichoke hearts and spinach, pear and Gorgonzola, and tostada. Our favorites include 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 (multi-grain penne available on request), sandwiches made with ciabatta, or a salad. You don't need to stay on the Italian track, as options range from Asian (kung pao spaghetti) to Latin (fish tacos) and beyond. Special menus are available for vegetarians and vegans, and the allergen- and gluten-sensitive.
