Hole in the wall!

If I wasn't a local, I feel like I would not really know about this wonderful place. It is below another restaurant and on the side of the street. It is more of a bar scene past 10pm but during the day, a wonderful pizzeria! The servers are friendly and attentive, food is great, and they have a... read more

Best pizza in central virginia hands down! Great service no complaints at all, the servers are always friendly and very attentive. The atmosphere reminds you of a lot of the great pizza restaurants in Naples Italy that are in the lower levels of the buildings. This is the only place to go in Lynchburg for pizza.

I LOVE Rivermont pizza! The atmosphere is eclectic and the staff is young and hippy/geek/trendy. The have a lot of beer on drought and lots of local beers, too. The pizza is outstanding. My husnpband always gets the Wuatro Carne and thinks it's the best. I always get the Eild Mushroom white pizza and I Think IT'S the best. You... More

Unique tasty food. Try the nachos with pulled pork and "Thurman Thomas" for a real treat. A bit pricey for the size portions (the $14 for a 12" pizza would be a great value at 15-16") but big on flavor.

Right next to Randolph College, this is a really neat underground pizza joint and bar. They have a great selection of beers and some reasonably odd pizza toppings that you might not find around normally. The food is quite good and the place has a real college vibe to it,

We used to really like this place. However, the service has gotten to an inexcusably bad level. At times, you can wait 25-40 minutes just to have someone take your order. Even then, the servers act like they're doing you a favor. Prices are way too high for the size of the pizzas. Noise levels make it impossible to carry... More

Rivermont Pizza has great pizza and some unique ones. I love that they have some great alternatives for vegetarians. Can be hard to find if you are not familiar with Lynchburg and parking is limited but it is worth the effort.

A gem in Lynchburg for a social scene, pizza joint, beer mecca. It's not the cheapest hole in the wall in town but it has it's own character and I dig it... It gets a bit crowded on weekend late nights so avoid if that isn't your thing. I will also admit it can get a bit hipster, so also,... More

If you're looking for the premier pizzeria that Lynchburg has to offer, then search no further. This is THE pizza spot. Located on an off-street on the basement level, it has a cozy "speakeasy" sort of feel to it. The staff are welcoming and quick to offer helpful suggestions. They crank out a great variety of gourmet pizza options (the... More

There are two dollar signs for Rivermont Pizza but is cheaper than the other similar places in town that only show one dollar sign. At lunch they have a special that makes it a great price. The pizza is the best in town, though my wife prefers Waterstone (good but more expensive). This is the more casual hip cool choice... More
