As of January 2013, its name has changed to Castle Pizza, but the Mediterranean items on the menu remain. That said, do not be alienated by its fast food (express!) format. The affable owner is of either Turkish or Lebanese descent, and his gracious pizza chef of Italian descent, so they take especially great pride in their food. I cannot rate the Italian food because it all is white flour from which I refrain, but the vegan Middle Eastern fare here is excellent.The hummus, the stuffed grape leaves, the falafel, even the tahini sauce, all are excellent. Lunchtime is crowded, so "do" takeout and have a picnic at the nearby harbor park. Best after 4pm, when the crowds do not merely thin out but disappear, and when free parking is easily found right at its entrance.
