Willow Street Pizza, the chef driven comfort food restaurant that has been serving the Bay Area for 30 years, has revamped its Happy Hour menu in time for the new year. Available at Willow Street’s two locations in Los Gatos (20 S Santa Cruz Ave) and Willow Glen (1072 Willow Street), the Happy Hour menu is offered Monday through Friday from 4pm-6pm.

The new Happy Hour menu includes a variety of drink specials including $10 house cocktails, $8 house wines, $2 off all draft beer, and food offerings priced at $10 and under, such as mini pizzas, willow wings, meatballs, garlic bread, and garlic fries. The updated happy hour menu follows the concept’s 30th-anniversary celebration and the introduction of the new executive chef Hisham Abdelfattah who has also begun introducing seasonal specials and is planning to renovate the locations in 2024.  

“Switching up the Happy Hour menu was something that I was interested in as soon as I took the position as Executive Chef,” says Hisham Abdelfattah, Managing Partner and Executive Chef of Willow Street Pizza. “Our new happy hour isn’t just about discounted drinks and appetizers; it’s a celebration of our guests’ favorite flavors. In a city buzzing with a large variety of happy hour competition, we wanted to redefine our offerings one bite and sip at a time, to make Willow Street Pizza a new favorite happy hour destination.”

Serving wood-fired pizzas, scratch-made sauces and doughs, and traditional pastas, Willow Street Pizza is known for its commitment to serving great food and drinks to the South Bay community. Some fan-favorite menu items include the Italian Pizza (tomato sauce, mozzarella, fontina, local Italian sausage, pepperoni, garlic, mixed mushrooms, spicy Calabrian peppers, and basil,) the Willow Burger, Chicken Tequila Fettuccine, and Thai Chicken pizza. And, through Spring 2024, Willow Street Pizza is serving seasonal specials like the Mamas Soup and Sandwich, Potato Gnocchi, Beef and Bean Chili, Roma pizza, and The Chefs Lasagna, only available on Sundays.
