Add to that Barbarians Pizza (511 State Street) and Uncle Rocco’s N.Y. Pizza (427 State Street), and you have 3 pizza options within a block’s walk on the same side of the street.
Patxi’s (pronounced “Pah-Cheese”) began in the summer of 2004 in Palo Alto when a pizza lover and entrepreneur Bill Freeman, partnered with friend and expert pizza maker, Francisco “Patxi” Azpiroz.
“My first job was as a dishwasher at a pizza place called Zachary’s in San Francisco,” recalls Azpiroz. “I worked my way up from dishwasher all the way through to a senior manager and learned just about everything there was to know about pizza including deep-dish.”
The pair have since added locations in the Bay Area, Seattle and Denver, and now have Santa Barbara in their sights. For more information visit patxispizza.com.
