California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

: The original BBQ chicken pizza never fails, but more adventurous pie tasters might appreciate the California club with bacon, chicken and mozzarella, and wild mushroom and roasted garlic, all on a hand-tossed, chewy crust. If you can tear yourself away from the pies, try one of the pastas like the chicken tequila fettuccine or Asian-inspired kung pao spaghetti. There are plenty of small plates and appetizers to share and kick off the meal. Soups and sandwiches made with good hearth-baked focaccia round out the menu. Red velvet and butter cakes are among the desserts.
