The neighborly Live Oak Kitchen serves up thick, cheesy pizzas that have inspired great loyalty among Los Gatans. Arguably the best pizza in Los Gatos.
The Food Although Live Oak has a long and varied menu, the restaurant is perhaps best known for its pizzas. The thick, cheesy pies rank among the very best in Silicon Valley. Unlike the so-called family sizes at many parlors, the 16-inch monsters at Live Oak will actually feed a family of four. The crust is dense and heavy and there's enough cheese to string from here to Bakersfield and back. They don't skimp on the toppings and the sauce leans slightly to the spicey side. All the regular numbers (pepperoni, veggie combo, Italian sausage) will suit you fine. Also try the the Besto Pesto pizza that delivers a fantastic mix of pesto, goat cheese and tomatoes. Beyond pizza, enjoy such diverse delights as baked meat loaf, chicken parmesan, chicken-fried steak, stir-fry and Cajun chicken. Live Oak is also popular for breakfast--especially on the weekends.
