This is not your average pizza joint. It has a great local heritage and the pizza is amazing. Great lunch special with a salad and slice. My favorite part of it all was getting a slice of deep dish. Amazing!

We try to make it to The Top at least once every time we travel to Gainesville. The eclectic decor and the funky atmosphere keep you entertained while you wait for a table. They don't take reservations, sadly. Food is fabulous and fresh.

I admit, never ate there, but their beers are great and you can freely walk-in, hang around the table soccer, or go in the patio to chat with friends in a friendly environment, like I am used to do in Italy!

This place is and always has been one of my favorite food places in Gainesville. My favorite is the gnocchi carbonara. Atmosphere is good and it's super popular (especially on Friday night). Only thing that could be improved is the restrooms. I get that they are going for the quirky look but they are really bad in terms of appearance... More

Funky downtown restaurant frequented by locals of all ages. Family/hipster/retiree friendly with great food and efficient service. Always busy which is a testimonial to its longstanding popularity. Highly recommended!

Short wait on a Saturday night. Service was stellar and food was excellent. Wine pairings were suggested and worked well for me. Will Definitely return to The Top.

I like to gauge each new town I live in my going to first bar/pub I hear about and ordering nachos and a beer without looking at the menu. It tends to be oddly accurate. Anyway, I sat down, ordered something on tap and ordered nachos. The plate was huge, hot, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Total bill with tip... More
