MY RATING – ★★★★☆
Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta is one of my favorite restaurants in California Adventure. The food is generally pretty good, and the seating area is shady and comfortable. However, guests should know that this is not a light lunch; everything here is very heavy and comes in giant portions, including the salads. If you just want a snack or aren’t super hungry, you might want to steer clear of this restaurant. Otherwise, Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta is a great place to eat.
