We happened upon this place in August moving our daughter to ASU. While Federal Pizza is not near Tempe it's worth the drive if you like unique pizza and great restaurant staff. The team approach to service is confusing at first but its great to have so many people stopping in to check on you throughout the evening. Also, the... More

The first couple times I came here, I have to admit I was neither impressed nor unimpressed. It just didn't stick out to me. That changed when last Friday when we were looking for a place to get beer in a nice atmosphere we settled on here. We sat at one of the booths that run down the middle of... More

Stopped here on an early Saturday afternoon. Not busy at the time. Friendly greeting upon entering and immediately seated. I like the open architecture of the place. Three of the walls are all glass so that it makes the place feel larger and brings in a vibrant but easy going atmosphere. My son had the Lamb Bolognese, which he didn't... More

I had the 1/2 Casanova pizza and Spring salad lunch special. I'm not a huge fan of bubbled crust, but enjoyed this pizza. The balsamic dressing was really good on it. The salad was pretty good too. Place is clean and the service was really good. Would eat here again.

The pizza is very good. We got the double down which is half a pizza and half salad. Just the right amount. Excellent food.

I went to Federal Pizza on a balmy night during monsoon season. The parking lot was buzzing with cars flitting about for competitive spots. The wait for seating took only moments though the dining areas looked full. We opted to eat outside on a patio that faces Central Avenue, and it was perfectly comfortable for conversation and dining. The menu... More

I've been here twice for lunch and had great service and great food both times. The pizza ingredients are very fresh and the taste is different and delicious (they combine different ingredients for a nice twist on normal pizza choices. I'll be back!

They do have a special for 1/2 pizza and a salad which it was fabulous also. The chicken Parmesan was excellent. The margarita pizza with mushrooms and pepperoni... More

A whole group of us walked here from the light rail prior to a concert at Talking Stick Arena. Great open concept. New industrial feel with great music and busy happy vibe. The food was above the norm. Pizza was very good with fresh ingredients. Will go back for sure.

Thank Randall B
