Directions to Pizza My Heart at 117 E San Carlos, San Jose, CA

[back up to SBAY.ORG Social Events]

Pizza My Heart in downtown San Jose is at 117 E San Carlos, San Jose, CA 95112. It's between 3rd and 4th streets, next to Ben & Jerry's.

This is the SBAY Pizza location for 1Q2011 and 2Q2011.

We reserved the "Board Room" in the back of the restaurant. You can see it through a glass wall.

The restaurant has free WiFi. Downtown San Jose also has free WiFi. So we should not need to set up our own.

Downtown San Jose parking info
Allow extra time to find parking.

The city has a downtown parking web site sjdowntownparking.com. Street parking at metered spaces is free after 6pm Saturdays - but it may be difficult to find especially on nights with Sharks games.

There are two parking garages adjacent to the Pizza My Heart location. Pizza My Heart is not on the city's list of businesses which can offer 2-hour parking validations for these garages. (It costs the businesses to do that.)

It was pointed out to us that the garage underneath the restaurant (entry from 4th Street on the right approaching San Carlos St) does not charge on Saturday evenings after 6PM.
