We stopped in around 10 for a slice of pizza. There were plenty of options to choose from even at that time. The Chicken Parmesan pizza was delicious. We will definitely be back during our next trip to Charlottesville!

I had the avacado and feta pizza( there were so many choices!!!). The crust was crisp and they were very generous with the toppings and slice size. My husband had a slice of pepperoni, which had a softer style crust and delicious sauce and cheese. We also split a piece of sausage. The sausage had a great sage flavor and... More

I love this place and only eat at the downtown location because the others don't hold up. Amazing toppings and great lunch or late night.

While in Charlottesville for the weekend, we tried Christian's mostly because my son's name is Christian. What a wonderful surprise! The toppings were amazing, the most innovative pizza I have ever had. Whole mushroom and olives, capers, feta cheese, it was a taste bud explosion! and their beers are very inexpensive. Next time I am in Charlottesville, it is a... More
