Great pizza and ambience

Very thin crust pizza with many combination topping options. Very good. We also enjoyed the grilled veggies. Street parking was a little challenging but we lucked out, as it was a Sunday and about 5pm.

My daughter was in town so I wanted to take her to the number one pizza place in Portland....couldn't get a reservation. So, reading Ken's Artisan Pizza reviews we gave this restaurant a try. Cute restaurant! We walked in and the staff was really friendly. Liked the wood burning oven in plain view. Got a seat without a reservation...which they... More

My wife and I recently returned from a trip to Italy where we experienced one of the best Neapolitan margarita pizzas I have ever tasted. Upon returning home and doing some research on line to find the best pizza joint in Portland, Oregon we thought we might be able to relive that afternoon lunch experience that we had in Naples,...

We shared a giant, Caesar salad to start. I normally don't eat the croutons, but they were delicious! I had a perfect Margarita pizza, which is my fave. My husband loved his pizza with prosciutto and caramelized onions. They have a nice wine selection. We were too full for the desserts, but we'll be back!

The over roasted veggie appetizer was a fabbie start to the meal. There were 4 of us, two pizzas is more than enough. THEN we ordered dessert. Great gastro experience for sure.

Arrived at 7 on a Friday night and got seated at the bar. We shared the vegetable appetizer trio and a Margherita pizza. Pizza was large enough for two. Restaurant was full so the pizza did take awhile but was worth the wait. Blackberry crumble and chocolate cookie puddin for dessert. Definitely worth saving room for.

Striking a balance between public transport and Best pizza isn't easy in many place; not so in Portland. Ken's is definitely one of the best. Super friendly staff; very accommodating and attentive. Great oven and delightful pizza dough spinners! The caesar was loaded with parm; the oven-cooked broccoli with peppers was super and the pizza precisely as it should be... More

Absolutely incredible pizza and very reasonable prices. Not greasy or oily at all. The ambience is lovely and great for families. I would go here again and again even though I'm only in town for a week!

Without a car, it is hard to find this neighborhood pizza place on the east side of Portland. And hope you get a seat when you arrive since they don't take reservations, and only open for dinner. If you are a baker, it is more than worth the trip. The crust is superb...chewy, crisp, flavorful. We had the Sausage/fennel, the... More

I had an anchovy pizza. Don't go yuk until tou taste it. The best! Fantastic flavor, great crust. Margarita pizza is phenomenal. Caesar salad is stacked with lots of fresh greens and Parmesan cheese. Wonderful servers and cooks. You gotta go here. I searched this company because of Food Network.... And I agree. Two thumbs up!
