The Wife is gluten-free, by necessity (not choice) and has perfected her pizza dough recipe after two years. Apparently all we had to do was come here! This is the only GF dough she feels rivals her's! As for the 'regular' pizza ... Oh ... My ... Gawd! Amazing! And local beer on tap? Find me an apartment nearby; we're... More

I found this place online before we left the UK, as my wife is gluten-intolerant and I didn't want us to have to search for ages when we arrived in Charlottesville. What a fabulous restaurant - quirky, but with a certain charm. The service was prompt and helpful, and the pizzas were great. I had a holy shitake, which was... More

We were visiting Monticello with our nephew's family and stopped at the Mellow Mushroom for lunch after our tour. The Mellow Mushroom is a few steps from the UVA campus, and obviously a popular hangout/sports bar with woody interior, a large bar, tv screens mounted everywhere and roomy booths. The 6 of us, ranging in age from 7 to 68,... More

I ordered the vegie pizza and it was THE BEST pizza I've had ever. It was my first time eating from there. It was amazing! The next time I am in Charlottesville I will be sure to eat in this time!

The review title really says it all. Mellow Mushroom pizza cannot be beat due to a crust that is second to none. This particular location is always great to visit. They have an extensive selection of beers and the service is always great. Don't miss out!!!

Sometimes it's Chilean sea bass or steak au poivre, BUT sometimes it's a pizza and Corona. And if it 's a pizza and Corona you're craving it's the Mellow Mushroom you're seeking. Low key, college kids, townies, and tourists. They're all there. And so were we . The House Special and a couple beers and all was right with the... More

My family of four was visiting UVA and we chose this for lunch. Pizzas and appetizers were delicious and fairly priced. Service (waiter was a former UVA football player) was great - had such a nice conversation with the lovely young man.

This is my favorite casual restaurant choice is Charlottesville, VA. The atmosphere is fun and casual. The pizza is fantastic, the service is relaxed yet prompt and they have a wonderful assortment of beers on tap (over 20). I tried the Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter. Prices are reasonable and if you're travelling alone like I was, it's... More
