Delicious

This time,instead of pizza we had pasta. The tomato sauce was delicious...authentic Italian taste...the portion was large enough for two people. There was also a salad and the yummiest garlic bread included. We ordered a side dish of broccoli sautéed with garlic. It was cooked to perfection. Well... read more

Treat employees like dogs. Embarrass them in front of customers. Many pics I see going around of the back kitchen. Chicken thrown in boxes near garbage. Also no dishwasher so how clean are the silverware. The nicest employee they chased away to replace her with a collage girl who uses them only while she is up from collage so they... More

A great family pizza shop with some unusual and great combos. Reasonably priced also. It's located right in front of the Best Western Hotel and Conference center.

This was our second stop at this Italian restaurant after being referred here by another restaurant owner in Kingston. We love their pizza and their dough is always so fresh! We also split a chicken parmigiana dinner and that was also very good! Oh, and the glaases of merlot was just what we needed to accompany our dinner!

My friend is a Dentist in Kingston, New York. I had a great visit with Doctor Nunez. Afterwards we stopped by to get pizza for the kids. I walk in and 2 people were ahead of me. The owner was very discerning. He notices a lady's sadness and encourages her. He notices 3 adults with a learning disability and gives... More

No, no, no. Rude, and impatient. Expect to be ignored even if no one else is there (and they'll look right at you, act busy, then look away) unless you start doing jumping jacks to get them to realize they should probably ask you what you'd like. But if someone they know comes in while you're waiting to be helped... More

Picnic Pizza has a plain name but great pizza. There is every kind to choose from cheese to everything and everything in between. Regular and Sicilian Pizza as well as all kinds of Italian dishes. What ever you get you will like.

Four of us ventured to Picnic Pizza for lunch and we were not disappointed. We ordered two 14 inch pies. One with eggplant and ricotta cheese and the other with vegetables. Both pies were smothered with toppings, cooked to perfection and tasted delicious. The cost for the two pies and 4 drinks was $40.50. We took six slices home. Great... More

Went here for dinner and thought I was just going to get Pizza but saw that they also had Pasta. I ordered the Eggplant dish and like the sauce very much. We also had the Penne a la vodka. They have beer and wine options too and a very homey decorated dinning area. If you are looking for good pizza... More
