Yummy!

A visit to Columbia must encompass a pizza here. We had canadian bacon, artichoke, and banana peppers, and it was delicious. They deliver around downtown, lots of outdoor patio space. Very healthy tasting!

This place is awesome. For a campus at MU this were all the students go. For local people they have other locations which is awesome.

Truly the best pizza in Missouri. Love the wheat crust option. Great beer selection and now 3 locations in Columbia alone. I love the kids get a free personal pizza night as it really helps on the cost with a family of 5.

Whenever we are in town we always stop to have a Shakespeare's pizza!! There is sometimes a long wait and they do take awhile to make your pizza sometimes, but it's SOOO good and worth the wait!

Fabulous pizza...better then advertised...the staff however were a bit lacking in customer service....well at least the only employee that we came in contact with at the order counter. I explained we were from out of town and really didnt know what the process was and she actually rolled her eyes at us! The she pointed to the drink area and... More

The downtown Shakespeare's is our favorite but the pizza is good over on the west side as well. The south end is just different for some reason. We only like this pizza in the restaurant. Delivered it takes on the taste of the cardboard. Frozen in the grocery store are ok, not sure what they do differently when frozen. The... More

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor I was looking forward to trying this pizza. I ordered the pepperoni. I liked the pepperoni, the cheese and the sauce but was disappointed with the crust. I was expecting a much thinner crust. Also, I was very disappointed with the amount of pepperoni on the pizza! Two per slice if lucky!

Of all the pizza joints in Columbia Shakespeare's is by far the best. Great selection of toppings and interesting combos like artichoke hearts, black olives and Canadian bacon. They also have salads and sell pizza by the slice. The downtown location has all kinds of cool vintage signs and other nostalgia collectibles hanging on the walls. I've been there numerous... More
