“Good Pizza in the Neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

PW has good pizza. Their salads are nice also. As many new and old restaurants when busy the noise level is high.

“Pricy, but TASTY, gourmet pizza place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

PW Pizza is one of those places that prides itself on being a little different. Set on the ground floor of a red brick building that also houses another restaurant and an event space, PW's charm is the exposed brick and cooling systems, the mirrors hanging over the prep tables in the kitchen, and the beer. Angry Orchard on draft won my wife over, who had had a long day.

The menu online isn't updated, but check it out anyway -- there are plenty of pizza options, and most of them are not your typical tomato sauce-with-mozzarella fare. You'll find hearty, bold, punch-you-in-the-gut combinations on one pie, then lighter pies that emphasize flavor without the heaviness. We've only tried a few in the times we've gone, but we've not been disappointed.

We split a 12" pie that was half Gringo and half Gyro. The Gyro featured their beef/lamp/pork meatballs along with feta cheese, cucumber, onion, and a greek yogurt sauce. Little tip -- get the Honey Wheat crust if you order the Gyro pie, because it's a bit on the salty side, and it kind of needs something sweet to balance it out. The Gringo, on the other hand, was perfection. Cilantro cream sauce, chicken, corn, whole roasted cloves, green and red peppers that actually DIDN'T overpower the flavor of the rest of the pie.... I can't even remember all that was on it, but it was spectacularly flavorful. The pie had a great crust, with a nice crack to it and a nice amount of chew.

You'll drop $15 for one of these pies, easily, so be prepared to fork it out, but you'll experience pizza unlike that which you're used to. For my money, that's worth the trip. They also have sandwiches, calzones (which are fantastic), and great appetizers on the menu. The pretzel is big and soft, with a STRONG horseradish mustard, and you can also order the beer cheese, which is made with actual cheddar instead of something processed. Great to get the taste buds going and make you crave that draft beer.

“Great St. Louis Pizza Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Have visited PW Pizza several times over the past year. Great food with lots of choices & super affordable. The service was outstanding no matter the party size. We have visited with 14 of us and 2 of us and had consistent service each time. One recommendation: Get the meat lovers salad...it is a very large portion, so share it, but it is outstanding!

“Sunday Night meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Was pleasantly surprised how good the pizza and service was at this place. We got there about 6 on a Sunday night and they ushered us right in. Large and friendly staff. The most popular pizza is a supreme type which we did order, but our favorite was a goat cheese and spinach pizza which was simply amazing. We got 2 different deserts which were quite good and the microbrew beers they have on tap are also excellent. Of all the places we ate in St. Louis, this place probably offered the best combination of service, food, and atmosphere that we ate at. The meal price's were relatively reasonable as well. Highly recommend!

“Great Pizza, great atmosphere, very ample parking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

This place is in a downtown area so we were a little concerned about parking arrangements (we are kind of from the country and don't like to use parking meters, etc) but were pleasantly surprised that they actually had a pretty large parking lot for customers. The entire place was remodeled, looks very cool. And the PIZZA! Wow! Good! They only have one size, which I believe is a 10 inch. Awesome! My whole family loved it and we will definitely tell family and friends about this place. You WON'T be disappointed
