Always a go to place in Shockoe Bottom - you cannot eat one of these pizzas by yourself. Artichokes and other delicious and different toppings that you won't find anywhere else.

Pizza was outstanding and different than what you are used to. Sort of gormet style pizza, but the kids did get the standard cheese and boy was it a lot of cheese on it. We had heard good things and it delivered. The one side point is that it is hard to find a parking spot around the restaurant. We... More

Liked: the location - something cool & relaxing about the setting Liked: the fresh spinach, real bacon, fresh tomatoes, and size of the Spinach Salad. Liked: the pizza flavor and sourdough crust. Warning: there was enough leftover pizza for my whole dinner - those slices are giant (that's a good thing!) Didn't like: (intentionally left blank)

If your looking for great pizza, this is the place. Downtown next to the canal walk, Bottoms Up provides a great local take on a pizza slice. The service was very good and the pizza excellent. Have been here many times over the years and have had many of the items on the menu. You can't go wrong!

The pizza was at one time the very best in Richmond. It has lost its appeal in the years since. A very interesting atmosphere, an old factory space converted. I have not been there for one year, so my review may be less than accurate. At one time, it was a must see in Shockoe Bottom. The last time I... More

Felt like a little bit of a let down. Don't get me wrong the outdoor view is amazing and the atmosphere and style matched the location to a T. But the Pizza was just average and the lunch wait for just two slices seemed to take a bit of a long while. Maybe my pizza standards are high but this... More

The Karen's Combo pizza was delicious as were the side salads (not just lettuce!) The place was packed on Mother's Day evening and unfortunately the outside deck was closed because of thunderstorms. Parking is not easy and we had to walk a couple of blocks to avoid paying for parking. Great service even on a very busy day. The place... More
