ALWAYS A KEEPER, TOP OF THE LINE NY STYLE PIZZA, CHOP SALAD TO DIE FOR

My headline explains it all. Their key items are all first-rate, best in town. My wife says their pizza is best in the universe. The other side of Satchel's that endears is the quirky, funky decor and the shop selling all kinds of zany novelties (not to miss). Last but not least, the philosophy of... read more

Living in Gainesville for the Summer B session at UF, was super excited about visiting since I've heard so much about this place. Was a little disappointed, the place is unique, very cute and original. The staff was super friendly and informative but the pizza was just ok. Had the thin crust and the deep dish...the crust for the thin... More

I get the pesto base pizza with onions, sausage, and bacon and it's the best thing I've ever eaten. Also I love their salad - really fresh, light, and tasty. Their drinks/soda are homemade which is awesome and their desserts are so good! Everything I've gotten from Satchels is amazing. If you happen to be in Gainesville, go here, it's... More

So enjoyed our first visit that we came back again two days later! Recommend the deep dish! The Bon bons are also a perfect ending to a wonderful meal!

Had reviewed Satchel's about 2 years ago. Great place, great food. Returned to visit family in Gainesville and took the grandchildren for pizza. Still great. A funky atmosphere, eclectic art and fantastic pizza and salads. Helpful servers. A fun place to eat.

It's the go to place for pizza in Gainesville. Everybody knows about Satchel's. My daughter even named her cat Satchel. It's everybody's favorite place, and the pizza is just one reason why. The House Salad is awesome, the decor is funky and eclectic. My grandson proclaimed it the weirdest restaurant in the world. Craft beers and specialty sodas abound. Service... More

They have the best pizzas and very good salads. It is also a must not miss restaurant for the "wild" setting! It is so much fun to look everywhere (I love the seats in the van) and to browse the store. I love their soaps!

If you want REAL homemade pizza, check out Sachel's. It's always fresh and hot, made with good ingredients. The salad is addictive, and they make their own vinaigrette dressing. Get there early in the evening to get a pan pizza, as they make a limited amount. They are awesome! The calzones are excellent, too. This is a funky place with... More
