Hand crafted pizzas with interesting toppings. But be patient as the kitchen staff takes time to do it right. Limited seating means you could wait forca perch unless you arrive at 5 p.m.

Love their pizzas- hot from the oven served in a comfortable setting. Many choices of wine by bottle or glass. Off season special is buy bottle of wine and get a pizza free. Try the not your average pepperoni pizza ( made with soprasetta) it's yummy!!!

Half Full serves one main thing--pizza. But not your ordinary pizza. It's rectangular, and comes with either a red sauce or white garlic sauce. There are loads of toppings from meats to veggies, and you can design your own or order one of their suggested pizzas. The crust is thin and crispy and everything is incredibly delicious! We love the... More

Great food and fabulous staff. We are locals and make sure we get there often. Btw...You have the wrong picture of the building...the moved onto Second Street and expanded their seating, inside and out. Looks the same but doubled the size:)

Many pizza places kinda look the same, a store front and few tables. Half Full's building looks like something you would see in a sea side town, and Lewes is a just that. It has some seating outside, the inside is small but with the high top rough sawn tables it can handle more people than we initially thought. The... More

This little restaurant has awesome wood fired pizza and a decent selection of wine and beer. The ambience is very casual and you may find yourself sharing a long table with other guests, but believe me, the pizza is so good you won't care. Thin, crispy crust, lovely sauce, gourmet options - there is something for everyone. The pizzas are... More

This was a nice find and a fresh and welcome alternative to the only other pizza place on 2nd Street. The restaurant is very small and can get really crowded on a Saturday night, but the turnover is quite fast. The hostess was great in finding us a table quickly that could even accommodate our child (our table was an... More

Just really great wood-fired pizza and a great indoor and outdoor seating. Reasonably priced wine and beer and a staff that knows what its doing.
