Looking for a place to fuel up before or after your day at Moonlight Beach? Stop by Leucadia Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant in Encinitas. This local hot spot is just a block away from the sand on Highway 101.
Leucadia Pizzeria isn’t your typical Italian restaurant and is much more than just a pizza and pasta place. Lobster mac ‘n cheese, sandwiches of all varieties, buffalo wings, spaghetti, calamari, pastries and baked goods are just a few options that comprise this eclectic menu.
Enjoy a gorgeous evening with friends and family watching the sunset on their outdoor patio or stop in and grab a slice of carrot cake to go! Leucadia Pizzeria has endless choices on their menu and an atmosphere that allows you to make your experience exactly what you want it to be.
If you’re looking for a traditional Italian meal there is plenty to choose from. The eggplant parmesan is a local favorite, crafted with layers of fried eggplant and mushrooms, drizzled in mozzarella cheese and served with a decadent spaghetti marinara sauce.
Or split a pizza with the family after a successful day of ocean play. And the pear gorgonzola is amazing! This delicacy is topped with candied walnuts, caramelized onions, dates, crisp pears, bleu cheese crumbles and mozzarella, then drizzled with garlic basil oil and baked with fresh arugula. Is your mouth watering yet?
Try some of their other delicious pizza options like the lobster pizza, Hawaiian pizza, ricotta, spinach eggplant pizza, vegetarian and much more! Be sure to check out the extensive pasta menu as well.
We recommend trying the delicious Chicken Marsala. This juicy chicken breast is sautéed with a rich, creamy Marsala wine and served with roasted garlic mushroom sauce over penne and a side of fresh veggies.
Be sure to save some room for dessert! You don’t want to miss the delicious pastries made in-house by Leucadia Pizzeria’s own pastry chef. Their Coconut Macaroons have officially stolen my heart. Try their hot and fresh cinnamon rolls or their unbelievable chocolate croissants.
They also have incredible desserts including tiramisu, carrot cakes, cheesecakes and brownies delivered from local Encinitas bakeries. You will be more than satisfied with your coastal dining experience at Leucadia Pizzeria because they’re “more than just great pizza” with all of the delectable options they serve.
