Thin crust pizza, but slow service

This place hasn't been the same since the early days before the place closed down and reopened. The pizza is thin crust and delicious, but the service is very slow. It's a crap shoot.

The large pizza came out 29$. Turned out a pinch of extra basil 2$, that is not even a toppings. They say one price when you’re ordering over the phone, different when picking up – surprise … I might be wrong, but pizza for 29$ is kind of steep. Have to say no caviar or truffles on this pizza.

Too many customers for the small but committed staff- and the wall of mirrors make the place noisy as they reflect the sound everywhere, as do the pizza pans hanging from the ceiling. The thin crust is good and the toppings fresh but they could back off the cook a little bit so the crusts aren't black. The guy making... More

The Pizzas are The Stars of this show! The wide range of speciality pizzas has something for most and a lomg,long list of Toppings give a wide range to build-your-own! Wheat crusts are also available. The Baked Lasagna is superb; the Calzones some of the best I've ever had; and a Slice & Salad deal that's enticing. 6 locations around... More

It's OK pizza, you might like if you like thin crust, and a thin coating of sauce, cheese and toppings. Rather unremarkable too me, but perfectly fine for take out for the kids. But if you are doing takeout, you might try one of the many other pizzerias that have a bit more 'substance' to their pies. So if you... More

I ordered a slice of the day and it seemed to have been sitting there all day! The crust was burned and the topping was very dry.

A pizza place that is much better known for exploiting Brazilians and for its owners accusing each other of misusing corporate funds than for its pizza is one to avoid. The other problem, which I have experienced at other Upper Crust locations, is that they leave inexperienced teens in charge with nary an adult in sight. Most of these kids... More

This place has been a life-saver when there is simply no time to cook. The thin crust style pizza is great, and the toppings are all excellent. Most recently we had green pepper, mushroom, artichoke and Italian sausage, ( Meat on my half only! ) This is not a cheap meal, but it is good pizza.
