Yummy "pizza" that is actually good for you! not much of an atmosphere, so a great place for delivery.

This is the best pizza place I've ever been to...my favorite slice is the Naturale with miso-tofu, tomato sauce, and tons of veggies on whole wheat crust but everything looks amazing. The staff is really nice and it's a great place to go to eat out by yourself because it's quick and there are a lot of other solo diners there.

I'm a student and I live around the block from Viva Herbal, and I have gone a few times in the middle of the night for a slice. Very, very good. Great study food, and reheats well for breakfast. Very highly recommended.

I have celiac disease (an allergy to wheat gluten) and am ecstatic to have found this place. The cornmeal crust is 100% gluten free and 95% wheat free. My celiac is pretty bad (can't even have any soy sauce) and I did not get sick from this pizza!!!!! I almost cried when I ate it, cause it really tastes like normal (good!) pizza. I highly recommend this place to those with wheat allergies, and I guess also to those low carb people as well, since they have spelt crust and other interesting crusts.

It's about time pizza was made with a variety of crusts. Trendy carb-watching is not the only reason to be concerned about the tons of refined white flour. Flavor is another -- white flour is bland, and while it has its place, it can get quite monotonous. Here is a place where you can get your pizza on spelt, whole wheat and even corn crust if you like. The toppings offered include a variety of cheeses and vegan options like miso and tofu. My only complaint is that some of the toppings could use a bit more punch, particularly the sauces. Still, the generous slices are loaded with colorful veggies and they make a tasty, fairly well-rounded meal for under five dollars. Some may not know that Viva Herbal also offers a unique selection of teas that, though pricy and served it unappealing disposable cups, are well worth checking out. Viva Herbal is a take-out place and looks it, which is fine. I, personally, find the pseudo-psychedelic oil paintings that adorn the walls to be somewhat out of place. I kind of wish they wouldn't bother with decorating but it doesn't stop me from coming back, expecially in summer when they put out their outdoor tables.
