Great pizza

I went there for dinner and ordered the margarita pizza. I enjoyed it very much. It was perfectly cooked. I will definitely go back.

Love the $5 before 5pm drink deal. We shared the grilled artichoke. Enjoyed that very much, not the best I've had, but quite good. My wife got the Garganelli pasta dish with the chicken added. We were seated right across from the kitchen and the server caught that the kitchen had forgotten the chicken. Her dish was full of lemon... More

I get something new every time I come here, and it is always phenomenal. I'm sad to learn they don't do the clams (or oysters) with chorizo as an appetizer anymore--maybe it's a seasonal thing. It's so very good, though. I would recommend the Big Star pizza if you get the pie. It's worth trying for sure!

Guess what Federal Pizza has? "THE ANSWER" The answer is a pizza that will not only make you feel like you choose a good pizza, it is a good pizza, a very good pizza. Get the answer and a glass a wine and your dinner problem is solved.

I came here for lunch with about 10 co-workers. Service wasn't super fast but since pizzas are not pre-made, I'm ok with that, especially since we had such a large party (it wasn't beat-my-head-on-the-table slow or anything like that). There are so many "urban hip" pizza places in Arizona now - I love them but at the same time it's... More

I heard a lot off postings about Federal Pizza and was looking forward to eating here. What a disappointment. The service was poor to say the least. The waitress could not even take our drink order correctly. Every time she came you table she would not listen. Only 3 out of 4 people got drinks. The artichoke appetizer was hard... More

We popped up there because of the ice cream shop across the street. Quickly served we had simple pepperoni pizza that my son ate in a wink of eyes. Services was nice and effective. Price are reasonable.

This is not your average pizza joint, its better! This is hipster classy pizza with beer type of place. But don't let the atmosphere scare you away if you don't dress like a hipster. This place serves amazing food and is very welcoming!

We visit Federal Pizza often when in Phoenix and never had any complaints re the food, the service and the ambience. Not many pizza places have good options for vegetarians but Federal Pizza is an exception. A few restaurants in Phoenix are worth visiting again and again. Federal Pizza is one of them.

Since moving back to the Phoenix area, we've been trying to find really good pizza. We were not having much luck. Then came Federal Pizza. We've been several times and have not been disappointed. The pizza crust has great flavor and consistency - not too thick and doughy, but not too thin and crackerish. Always creative toppings to choose from... More
