Great service, eclectic decor and good food that went beyond just pizza...I would recommend this place to anyone, just a fun place to grab something to eat. Very good salads and sandwiches.

We loved our experience at Pizzicato. It was a recommendation from a local Portlandian and we could have been more grateful. We consider ourselves pizza aficionados and this definitely lived up to our expectations. The offerings are different that the usual same old toppings. The best part is the location. After you stuff yourself with pizza, you can walk up... More

Three girls from Chicago give this pizza a resounding, "Awesome!" We ordered home delivery - the spinach/artichoke dip, the arugula pear salad and the pizza were all great. Super fast delivery too.

The arugala salad was wonderful, and the pizza, a house-made fennel sausage recipe similar to our local gourmet pizza place here in Berkeley was good but not quite as good as our local variety. They were great about our sharing one salad and one medium pizza between the two of us. Good people viewing on the street in northwest Portland,... More

we had the arugula salad and that was VERY tasty with the candied walnuts, but as pizza lovers, we weren't overly taken back by pizzicato. Not bad but not outstanding.

This is a typical looking pizza joint. Not much atmosphere. But the food is not typical. A large selection of salads, pizzas, & panini's. I had the shrimp pizza. It was the most flavorful pizza I have ever had. The crust was not too thin but was crispy. The peppers, garlic, fresh tomatos & large shrimp with feta cheese was... More

I hadn't had pizza for a while when young visitor from out of town wanted it. Pizzicato pizza tasted great, full of healthy incredients. No grease on the hands afterwards. Not your Midwest relation's Domino's!

I am obsessed with this pizza, its so good. The favor is just sickeningly delicious. My favorite thing other than the amazing flavor is the most important, the crust. Now let's keep this real, you can put what you want on a pizza, but if the crust is off, the whole thing will fail. My favorite pizza is the Di... More

If I'm going to have a pizza, I choose Pizzicato. Their Thai-Chicken is always great. Love the thin crusts. And, when you order a salad, it is a good size (not skimpy like many other pizza joints). I wish they delivered!
