The New York-style, thin-crust pizza at Gioia dominated our survey of the best pizza in Berkeley back in 2011, garnering nearly twice as many votes as the second-place winner. It gets high marks from us for seasonal specialties — asparagus and ricotta in the spring; butternut squash and blue cheese in the fall. Readers’ picks include garlic and arugula, anchovy, and pepperoni. Wrote one: “When Gioia makes their asparagus pizza, I do a little happy pizza dance.” It’s still packed today, and worth stopping in for a slice or three next time you’re searching for a parking space at Monterey Market. Gioia Pizzeria is at 1586 Hopkins St. (at Monterey Avenue), Berkeley. Wheelchair accessible. Connect with the restaurant on Facebook and Twitter.
