The pizzas here are awesome. The only problem I have is that I would like to see the smaller lunch sized pizza offered in the evening. The evening pizza is a family size deal so if I go out to eat with my husband and one of us wants pizza we both are forced into having pizza. Lunch offers an... More

This modern brick oven pizzeria has a great atmosphere and decent prices. My wife and I ordered different pizzas for lunch which were both phenomenal. I will definitely return.

When visiting Louisville we try to go here every third or fourth time. The quality of the wood-fired pizzas is excellent and their special ones are generally very good also. We have had the salads which are very good as well as wine and iced tea. Prices are reasonable, service good and atmosphere is informal. One can take well behaved... More

Great atmosphere, indoor or outdoor seating, nice bar setting. The pizzas are fresh and crisp, perfect size for two. Along with one of their fresh unique salads, a glass of wine and you have perfect!

My husband and I love pizza! We decided to try this place out and weren't disappointed. We got the Middletown and it was excellent. The atmosphere is fun and there is a good drink selection.

Fantastic! As a pizza fanatic and lover of NYC and Naples style pizza, this place rocked! Pizza was a bit thicker than NYC pizza and crispier than Naples style. And a big Hurray on the pepperoni! They don't use the fake orange large stuff the chains use! Fresh ingredients, flavorful and just great. Plus, truly coal fired by wonderful charred... More

First if all let me say that I hate the over use of the word Artisan! Ugh I am a pizza lover and a fan of the Ny slice not a Chicago style girl. So now that I have established where I am on the pizza war, I am not a fan of the Coals pie. For me the pie... More

We're always on the lookout for great Neopolitan pizza and we found it in Louisville at Coal's. Lunch special got us a Marguerita pizza and a salad for $8.95. The day we were there, one of the waitstaff didn't show up and service was so slow, our first pizza was cold by the time it got to the table. Our... More

Okay, with a name like Coals you wold expect a wood fired oven. Decent pizza not the worlds greatest. Wedge salad was okay, nothing special. Dressing from a jar as well as processed bacon bits.
