Sips and snacks: 🍕 A slice at Sisters

Sisters Pizza isn't new to San Diego, but it's new to me and it might be my favorite slice in the city.

Best bite: The OBecian — a garlic purée base with mozzarella cheese topped with mushrooms, goat cheese and a generous pesto drizzle.

  • Adding the house-made sausage was a great decision.
  • The East Coast-style slice has a crispy, chewy crust that doesn't flop.

The vibe: The neighborhood shop is modeled after Garden Pizza in New Jersey — the favorite childhood spot of owner Emily and her late sister.

  • Sisters is a casual slice shop by day and Italian family restaurant by night.
  • Grab a slice, a whole pie or eggplant parmesan and calamari, and enjoy it on the dog-friendly outdoor patio with a glass of wine or beer on tap.
  • Sisters also makes for a cute, last-minute, low-key date night (no reservations).

Fun fact: Sisters was voted the city's best pizza in 2023 by San Diego Reader, so, clearly, many San Diegans agree with me.

Stop by: 11am-9pm or 10pm on Friday and Saturday; closed Tuesday. Fourth and Brooks avenues in Hillcrest.
