Fantastic pizza, but loud environment

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... read 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

But as we wait we see pizza after pizza being delivered to... More

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?

Mellow Mushroom is a place you have to stop if you're in Cville. I believe it's a chain but I've only ever been to this one, and it's always excellent. They have a huge selection of craft brews on draft including all the local favorites. The spinach salad to start off with is delicious with candied nuts and creamy goat... More

This place is so good. Kind of pricey if you eat in, but take it to go and it's reasonable. You won't find pizza this savory and hearty anywhere else in Cville! Cool atmosphere, especially for college kids.

Okay. So it isn't traditional bruschetta according to our Italian companion, but it is darn good. They have a great slice and drink deal for lunch that a group of us touring the campus took advantage of. The pizza crust is always amazing and we enjoyed the food tremendously. We were in town for a wedding and the funny thing... More
