Very Good Pizza!

Pizza is very good. Whether you are a meat lover or veggie lover or somewhere in between. I always go for lunch and they have several different types of pizza to choose from. They also serve beer if interested.

This has to be one of the best "by the slice" pizza places around town. This long time downtown institution is a simple set-up: stand in line, order your slice(s), guy behind the counter grunts at you, he pops'em in the oven, you pay, you get your hot slices, you devour them. Voila! Nice thin crust NY style slices. The... More

Said to be Rochester's best pizza by many, for us it is a razor thin close second to Gallo's Pizza, but a great pizza and price none the less. Two great east to get to locations downtown Rochester and Greece. During the workday the lunch crowd is out the door and down the side walk, but they have east walk... More

There are only 330 miles that separates Rochester from NYC but the pizza between the two cities might as well be world's apart! Upon moving to the Rochester area some 20-plus years ago I discovered that pizza in Rochester is generally thicker, more bread-like and horror of all horrors ... they cut their slices into little squares so the end...

I gave them two chances and both times the pizza was mediocre at best. I thought it was me but my guests agreed. Not sure if these rave reviews are for real or they just haven't had good pizza. First the attitude of the employees is terrible. They are more interested in talking about what they did last night after... More

So what we have here is an angry review. If you don't like the pizza you write what you didn't like and leave it at that but Arab goes on to tell you about how bad the staff are and how I after 30 years of shopping I don't do it very well. On top of that he goes on... More

This may be the best tasting pizza in Rochester. I have been here a handful of times, and not one of those times did it disappoint. They sell pizza by the slice NYC style and if you are lucky enough, get some garlic knots. All their pizza is good but I highly recommend the garlic pizza, best garlic pizza I... More

Frequent both the State Street and Greece locations and are always pleased with the pizza and service. Enjoy the thin crust and Sicilian style, and the garlic knots are wonderful. Have also ordered multiple pizzas from both locations for lunch meetings or parties and the pizza always arrives hot, delicious and on time.

Delicious. Fast service. Great variety. No gluten-free options. A must stop pizza shop. Parking can be an issue depending on time of day. If visiting for lunch, make sure to get there a good 15 minutes before noon, otherwise there will be quite a line.
