The modern 4,100 square foot space at Regents Pizzeria allows the well-established pizza purveyors to provide guests with the same high quality American craft New York and Chicago style pizzas and American craft beer selection accompanied by authentic Chicago blues music. With enough seating for up to 125 people, guests can opt for one of 25 specialty flavor-driven pizzas either inside the restaurant, or outside in the convivial beer garden.

In addition to a spacious casual dining area, the kitchen houses eight traditional stone-deck ovens – all imported from the Italian city of Treviso. Mimicking the style of the popular Italian beehive ovens, the Cuppone ovens are temperature-regulated, allowing for controlled distribution of heat on the top and bottom of each pizza. The ovens allow Regents to deliver a consistent, quality-driven pizza to every guest.

Through a combination of top-of-the-line equipment and time-tested recipes including dough meticulously developed through trial and error in collaboration with revered Bread and Cie bakery, Regents Pizzeria continues its reputation for achieving the ideal balance of perfectly browned crust, flavor-forward sauce and bubbling cheese.

Each of the handspun pizzas are made from scratch daily using local produce and some of the freshest ingredients within reach, all made to order

Regents’ approachable, yet sizeable menu includes pizzas spanning a broad spectrum of robust flavors with highlights including the signature Milano New York Pizza (fresh spinach, topped with aged mozzarella blend, roasted garlic, prosciutto and white truffle oil on an extra virgin olive oil base) and the Popeye Chicago Pizza (spinach, artichoke hearts, ricotta and parmesan). Through a unique partnership with Venissimo Cheese, San Diego’s premier gourmet artisanal cheese purveyor, Regents Pizzeria offers an assortment of pizza slices made daily using a rotating selection of Venissimo cheese.

Regents also offers four calzones made to order from the restaurant’s rich New York dough as well as a variety of sandwiches freshly created with breads from highly regarded local bakery, Bread & Cie. Additionally, the restaurant serves a wide variety of classic pastas ranging from the light Angel Hair Pomodoro (in a spicy garlic tomato sauce with semi-dried tomatoes, parmesan and fresh basil) to the indulgent Rigatoni Chicken Pesto (grilled chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and rigatoni in a pesto cream sauce, topped with feta cheese).

Other signature items on Regents’ expansive menu include six different iterations of chicken wings, varying in spice level from Tame Wings to Scorpion Wings that clock in at 2,000,000 Scoville units and require a signed waiver for consumption. For the more health-conscious, Regents offers a Toasted Goat Cheese Salad (mixed greens, onions, apple slices, kaiware sprouts, red pepper, warmed goat cheese and citrus vinaigrette) and a Walnut Gorgonzola Salad (mixed greens, red onions, dried cranberries, candied walnuts and gorgonzola cheese). Rounding out the menu, Regents presents guests with the classic Italian dessert, Tiramisu, derived from the recipe of a highly regarded Michelin-starred Venetian chef.

To complement its wide array of menu offerings, the team behind Regents has developed an extensive craft beer program with an emphasis on hard-to-find brews. The restaurant houses 32 taps from a high quality system designed to preserve the integrity of the beers and their purity of flavor. The state-of-the-art system includes two nitro and two cask beer handles, not commonly found in other local establishments. In addition to a well-curated and ever-rotating tap list, Regents also boasts a selection of rare bottled beers.
