Rolled into Portland and were starving. A local pointed us to Escape From New York Pizza because they were open late and we got a couple slices, a caesar salad and some drinks. Very satisfying and cheap! Quick too.

While this is a small place, children and I found their pizza to be delicious! Hopping busy place with great selection of beverages for kids and adults, with special note on the local, tasty beers that were offered. Children enjoyed the pizza making in the front window. Not a full sit down restaurant, older place but was recommended by friends.... More

Pepperoni pizza was thin, greasy and tasty. Service was a little rude and restaurant could use a cleaning. Value was average. Next time I will try a different pizza place.

I've been eating their pizza since the early Eighties and it has always been excellent. I believe they were the first pizza by the slice in Portland. This is a pizza joint. It isn't fancy, but they do what they do exceptionally well. It is quite good by the slice, but it is truly outstanding if you get a whole... More

I've never been to New York, but this place would be as I would imagine a New York pizza place to be decorated. Seating is all deli or bar style. If you are with a group, this place will not work for you if you want to do any socializing at all. It's very informal and if you aren't a... More

This is primarily a pizza by the slice place, but we ordered a whole pie. Looked amazing when it came out of the oven directly to our table, but we noticed the olives were missing. When we asked about this they immediately recognized the mistake, added LOADS of olives on top AND refunded the amount we had paid for an... More
