Shakespeare's is a Columbia tradition. The pizza is like no other pizza I've ever had. They use the best toppings, crust and sauce. It's delicious! My favorite=Mushrooms, onions and pepper cheese on wheat crust. Great place to hang out and meet up with a large group of friends. Kid friendly.

This pizza only has the best ingredients! The pepperoni is hand sliced and the sausage is great too. I like getting the thick crust so that it can support all the toppings. The sauce is nice and think. They have a great selection of beers in bottles and on tap. I hope you get a chance to enjoy!

Considering that Columbia Missouri is about is central to the United States as you can get, I do have to note that Shakespeare's Pizza is a restaurant worth visiting if one is in the region. The toppings are fantastic and fresh, and the pizzas are tailor-made to your liking. Just down the road from the University of Missouri, this restaurant... More

Shakespeare's is just the best pizza and atmosphere anywhere, bar none. I have recently relocated to the west coast and am very sad that I couldn't bring it with me. You have a choice of regular or whole wheat crust... and it's all hand-tossed.... so if you like it thick or thin, suck it up baby... it's Shakespeare's! The array... More

This is a great place for families and for the college crowd. The south and west locations are sometimes a little less crowded if you are having a group, but the original downtown location is the best for the 'atmosphere.'

Shakespeare's Pizza is a very popular restaurant in Columbia. My husband and I have eaten there several times, mostly because others in our group wanted to go there. We feel it is very overrated. The toppings are great. Great topping selection. Although the crust is very tough. Maybe they overwork the dough. It has potential to be very good pizza.... More

The pizza here is good, though I don't think it is the best I have ever had. They have some unique toppings and the service is always friendly. The drinks are cheap too, so that is always a plus!

What a fun place. Take the family so the kids can play with the dough. Give the cashier a fake name. It will make the whole experience much more fun when they call your name when your order is cooked.

Shakespeare's Pizza is by far the best pizza I've tasted west of Chicago. They are well known for their whole wheat crust and vegetarian choices. Always good, and now distributed in supermarkets locally for cooking at home, a trip to one of the Shakespeare's is always the better option. Pizza is consistently good and you can watch the process while... More

With more than 40 pizza places in Columbia, where do the people in the know go? Shakespeare's Pizza. For years, the only location was downtown across the street from the University Of Missouri. But now, there are three locations--the other two being west and south Columbia. I and everyone else I know likes their pizza. Can't go wrong here.
