“Glad I found this place. Staff is super attentive and friendly. Portions are enormous. I wanted to lay down in the fetal position after eating but thought they may call 911. In all seriousness, the spaghetti and meat sauce was super. I will definitely be back when I come back to the area.” –Chad Cox

Pizza Port Ocean Beach is driven by its goal of providing the best service possible. They aim to paint a smile on their customers’ faces upon sampling their pies and beer. A satisfied diner fuels the morale and confidence of both the restaurant staff and owners. The restaurant was started by Gina and Vince Marsaglia in 1987. While still in their 20s, the siblings were able to purchase a pizza place in Solana Beach. Vince was particularly experimental, and when he saw the empty area at the place he decided to learn home brewing. The brewed beer was a hit among their friends and family. They eventually dive into the brewpub business later on. On the other hand, their pizzas are a proven suitable partner to the beer. They offer it in original, anti-wimpy, create your own and pizza of the month.
