Excellent pizza, too loud

This place would get five stars except it's just so loud! We stopped in for lunch and it wasn't very busy when we got there so I couldn't understand why the tvs were so loud. I could hardly hear my party. The food on the other hand was quite tasty. The pizza crust has a nice crunch to start but... read more

All too frequently, tasty pizza is really greasy. Fortunately, that was not the case here. The vegetarian pizza was great, but not at all greasy. I strongly recommend the Shitake. Be advised that this restaurant is at the popular Corner, and it is very vibrant. Be prepared to have a good time. Craig Herberg

Stopped in for lunch after a trip to Monticello. Had the Mellowterainin Pizza. Had a olive oil and garlic sauce with chicken, feta etc. Was a decent pizza, but way to much crust. Crust on outer edge was over 1 inch thick. It did taste good. Had a large beer selection. The most important thing to know is that it... More

We stopped here on a night when a UVa basketball game was playing on tv. The crowd was excited, as one can imagine, and very loud. It was difficult to hear one another, however the quick service, pitchers of beer, and fantastic pizza made up for it! We had a pepperoni pizza as well as the shiitake white pizza. Was... More

Like everything else in Charlottesville, it draws a young crowd and is noisy, but the pizza is fabulous and there is a good variety to choose from .

Familiar with the Mello chain. Enjoyed the menu and the draft beer selection. Seems like there would be a crowd even during the holiday period. Locals were ordering a lot of takeout so it is a local favorite.

Lots of options for my vegetarian daughter. We built our own pizza with tempeh, pineapple, ricotta, and mozzarella. It was crowded and loud but we could still converse. Very easy walk from UVA Medical Center.

This place has never been anything but great for the both of us. Finding some place to park is a challenge sometimes. More than just pizza that's for sure

Walked in for lunch and we could smell the mop bucket and whatever else from the night before. I get that it's in a college town but, it overwhelmed my senses. We sat and were greeted by a friendly staff member and our food was delivered promptly hot and delicious. Maybe next time .... Take out?
