Good pizza by the slice. Friendly service. Very family-oriented dining room. Plenty of big screen TVs. Bathroom could use a little bit of attention in the remodeling Department.

Bowsers has thin-crust, East Coast style pizza. A little pricey compared to some, but unique combinations and fresh ingredients make worthwhile.

Everyone has their own opinion about pizza, but I happen to think Bowser's has the best pizza in Alameda (although I still think Zacchary's needs to open a restaurant in Alameda!). I get the thin crust, with feta and roasted red bell peppers. The Greek salad is nice too. They have decent beer on tap too.

You know Round Table got famous for putting loads of ingredients on their pizza, think Bowzer is now leading. The pizza was very good. The change of ownership made the Violeta (eggplant/vegetarian) pizza a bit different. The old one was a slightly sweet eggplant, addictive, now the new one has a bit less of the sweet but more savory. Not... More

The other being East End in the Marketplace. My only complaint is that when you ask for garlic, they put whole cloves all over the pie, and they seem to have understanding of the phrase "go light on the garlic." And the delivery service is fast and pleasant.

Ingredients were fresh & tasty, it was ready quickly, and the service was friendly. Atmosphere was nice but informal. We spent the time waiting by looking at the huge mural and identifying all the dogs from tv and movies. Very fun. Would definitely go again!

This was the worst crust ever. There is no point in putting good toppings on a bad crust. We had a meat pizza and the sausage and pepperoni were okay, but not outstanding. You can get a much better pizza in a half dozen other places in Alameda.

It's really small and awkward and the staff is a little dismissive. That being said, the decor is nice and the pizza was alright.
