Been going for years

I can say that in our area, there is no better pizza than East Side. I've been going there for over 30 years and it's never changed. Don't be intimidated from the outside, always family, even though the bar is on the other side of the booth's and I've never heard a bad word come from over the wall... read more

The pizza here is amazing. I would rather have it from there than anywhere else. It's not the nicest place in town, but it's Delish.

Eastside is a landmark that has been around forever. The pizza is incredibly delicious. The tasty sauce and New York style brick oven crust has kept me and mine coming back for 30 plus years. Awesome place.

get the garlic, you won't be disappointed if you like garlic. Plan on waiting on a Friday or Sat., they are pretty popular in Pittsfield.

Coal fired pizza oven and a thin hand made crust makes this the best pizza in the world. We have been getting pizza here for more that 30 years.

somehow East Side managed to produce a pizza crust that was both burnt and soggy. The crust was tough and tasteless. The sauce was bland. Overall the worst restaurant pizza I have ever had.

East Side Cafe has the best pizza in town! The ingredients are fresh and thick. This is another diamond in the rough that hasn't changed in 30+ years. Its local, family owned and operated and has the New England charm you're looking for! Parking is plentiful, seats are cozy, the bar is long with great service! They also pack it... More
