Best pizza in town. We usually have a large thin crust which is more than enough for the two of. We get half pepperoni and half sausage, with extra cheese and it comes from close to what i remember from growing up in NYC

Nothing special about the pizza sauce. Disappointed about that. Salad was large but pedestrian. Had to ask several times for refills on water while cups were obviously empty and food was not completely eaten.

Eat in or takeaway, the pizzas at Patxi's are all highly enjoyable. The simple margarita is actually my favorite here. The thin crust is perfectly crispy... well worth the visit

Visited patxi pizza with my friends late Thursday night after the basketball warriors win. Deep dish was off the menu since we were late. The staff were still warm and friendly. We went for some juice and two different pizzas, a spinachini and a Blanco verde. The pizzas were delicious and we had a great dinner experience. Rating Food 5/5... More

Our deep dish is meant to be hearty and filling, stuffed with lots of toppings, cheese, and delicious sauce on top, and we usually hear that it's extremely filling.
