So Close To Being Excellent, Just Not Close Enough.

I love the joint for all of their accommodating options. We have often ordered food to satisfy diverse groups with various preferences and sensitivities. Definitely not the best pizza ever. Consistency is a serious problem.

The great thing about the joint is that you can pop in and a slice or two of pizza. They also have vegetarian and gluten-free options. My only issue is that at times the eatery could be a bit cleaner.

Full disclosure, I didn't "visit" the joint, I had them deliver. I work through dinner time, and wanted to try someplace different, so I put in a phone call so I could get a delivery. The first call, after several rings, went to an answering machine telling me they were on the other line & I should call back. The... More

Crust is perfect. Flavourful, chewy and crispy! By the slice choices are creative and delicious. We try to arrange our day at least once a week so that we can have lunch at the joint. Prices are very reasonable.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch here the day that he proposed, 8 years ago and then again just yesterday. Both times it was delicious and memorable. Our experience yesterday was lovely - there were lots of creative pizza options, as well as plenty of gluten free and dairy free options. The staff was friendly and very helpful,... More

Fantastic pizza, went twice during our trip to Victoria. Was nice that they had a gluten free version as well so we could all eat at one place, the decor is great, very creative menu ideas. Overall was great.

This place looks a little rough when you walk in but the pizza is fantastic. You can order by the slice or made to order.

We arrived in Victoria at 10 am after a red eye flight from Toronto, checked into our hotel after sleeping in the car for a few hours only. Spent the rest of the day sightseeing around the Victoria Harbour, when it was time for dinner we were basically pooped and decided to order in. The Joint offered an extensive menu... More

The Joint has very safe practices when making their gluten-free pizza. Everything is fresh and tasty. I have ordered pizza numerous times and never had a problem.

I went here around 9pm or so on my first evening in Victoria. They had about 4-5 different pizzas to choose from in addition to a variety of drinks. The staff were friendly and efficient and the pizza was decent. My slice had cheese (I think mozerella and cheddar?) and tomatoes. I don't think it had any sauce which I... More
