Sammy's Woodfired Pizza & Grill - Costa Verde/UTC

Located in the Costa Verde Center, minutes away from the breathtaking La Jolla beaches and UTC Shopping Center, Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill offers the gourmet lover a chance to savor their “healthy global cuisine.” Since its opening in 1989, Sammy’s has used only the freshest ingredients from local farms in order to provide healthy, organic, and sustainable entrees. Savor their parmesan crusted artichokes, or delight in the exquisite chicken tequila fettuccine pasta. Try something new and take a walk on the sweet side with Sammy’s yummy honey cheese pizza, blending sheep’s milk cheese, oregano, and orange blossom honey on a thin-crust, woodfired to perfection. The restaurant offers gluten-free and vegan menu options, as well as a full bar. Choose from a selection of fine craft beers and select fine wines as well as hand-crafted cocktails. Enjoy the cool ocean air on the fully covered patio while indulging in some of Sammy’s mouthwatering desserts, such as the warm crispy mini donuts or, for the chocolate lover, the messy sundae. Being one of the few locations with a full bar, Sammy’s Costa Verde offers daily happy hour specials from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. so don’t miss out.
