People rave about La Val's, but it seems pretty average to me. I've been to both of them in Berkeley, but I've found I like this one on North Side more. It has the pizza parlor feel, right along with the random photos on the wall. I've only ever gotten whole pizzas there to dine-in, so I'm not sure about their slice prices. The atmosphere is right though, and if you're not interested in pizza, La Burrita is attached right next door.
