Family-owned Ascona, with popular parlors in Danville and San Ramon, is expanding south, with a new restaurant in Pleasanton’s Gateway Shopping Center.


Why Come? The pizza, of course, which is a step above your average pie, with garlic butter–brushed crust and fresh, gourmet toppings.

What to order? Carnivores will dig the hearty Otto’s favorite, with four kinds of sausage: sweet Italian, hot Italian, Cajun, and garlic. For vegetarians, the Alps hits the spot, with pesto sauce, pine nuts, and chopped fresh tomatoes. Big parties should definitely pitch in for a large appetizer of garlic chips: pizza dough with cheese and garlic. Panini and straightforward salads are also available.

What’s the atmosphere? The airy space has a big bar and open kitchen. An outdoor patio near a water fountain beckons on a nice day.

How Much? Personal-size mini pies hover around $10. For weekday lunchers, the $6.50 special includes one slice of pizza (a quarter of a large pie) and a fountain soda.

When? Lunch and dinner daily. Late-night dining ’til 11 on Fridays and Saturdays.

Where? 6766 Bernal Ave., Pleasanton, (925) 399-6789, asconapizza.com
