Gourmet pizza toppings and a thin crust!

You don't have to have marinara sauce since they also offer garlic and olive oil, pesto. My favorite is lamb sausage, pesto, feta cheese, Kalamata lives and pepperoccinis! The offer slices too. Great salads, especially Greek and Caesar (with anchovies!)

I may be spoiled by our home town pizzeria, but I was not impressed. We had the special of the month, the chicken cotija (chicken, black beans, cilantro, onions and an avocado drizzle). The crust lacked flavor, the toppings were sparsely sprinkled across the slice and the flavors combined were very bland. The same goes for the cheese pizza, which... More

The pizza here is amazing, we come here regularly and get the pepperoni. You should definitely try it out!

I just like their pizza because they have unique combinations and I like their thin crust. They use feta cheese, greek olives, puttanesca pizza, good salads, nice atmosphere. I love being able to get a slice of my favorite pizza, pronto.

We were part of a large, but independently ordering, group in town for dear friends' wedding. This was an old fave of theirs and it didn't disappoint. Some folks had salad, most had pizzas. I had the Squisita: "mellow lamb sausage, artichoke hearts, feta & fontina on a house-made pesto base" and ordered it gluten free (for $2 extra). Very... More

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.
