Killer pizza

Always a great place to go for good pizza. A little on the pricy side, but can you put a price on greatness? Cost money to have great ingredients. Greek pizza is my fave! And in my opinion you have got to have a good crust. And boy do they.

The pizza is the best in town. The workers are so nice and sweet. Great place to take the whole family for a night out.

Bottoms Up Pizza is the best pizza place in RVA, maybe in VA! We have been going here for at least 18 years and their pizza is consistently delicious. This is a great place for a date night, large gathering of family or friends, and for take out. I hear they deliver to the surrounding residents in the Bottom…lucky soles!

Everyone raves about this pizza place but I did not see anything special about it.They have many specialty pizzas to choose from.The history of them rebuilding after the flood was very interesting. They have the flood line marked on the wall.I was just disappointed with all the hype I hear about their food.

Stopped in to try the pizza. Got a single piece of za as detailed in the attached picture; Thought it was a bit pricey @ $7 for this one piece. Don't recall what it was titled on the menu but it was like a meat lovers. Pizza was pretty good. I would order it here again but it's not something... More

We stopped here for an early dinner on a Saturday evening. There was no wait and we received fairly prompt service. The options were very unique, I had a slice with a white sauce, onion and crab meat. It was delicious but one slice is huge. It could easily feed two people so the pricing is fair. Overall we had...

While the food was delicious, the service was terrible. We waited an hour for our food, and the people who arrived there after our family were served before us. Never again!

We loved the pizza! We ordered it for take out to take with us up to libby hill on a picnic. It's thick and delicious (they do have a thin crust you can order) the sauce was very good!!! Also loved the location makes me want to go back and dine in.

If you're in a hurry, DO order from the special quick-serve lunch menu. If not, well, don't change your mind or get upset when it seems to take a while. Personally, I love the Supreme Salad and that's the only reason I go. To this day, I think I've only had Bottoms Up pizza when it was delivered for an... More

Some people call this "the best pizza in Richmond." Apparently these people are on very strong meds. It's nowhere near the best, in fact easily some of the worst; I'm being kind giving them 2 stars. First the crust: it wasn't soft enough, it was too thick even for Chicago style pizza, and was rather stale, not to mention bland.... More
