Like Mom's kitchen, everyone's at home. Try the DARWIN, no one hasn't enjoyed it. Watch the kids play with the dough. But get there early there is always a crowd

The pizza took a while to be prepared and the crust was overcooked. They seemed very nice but wanted my crust to be lightly cooked.

Best Pizza in Columbia, MO. When we have company visit and plan on pizza; we get Shakespeare's. We tell them if you are in Columbia, MO, you have to try Shakespeare's Pizza. They have about the best Pizza I have ever tried. They are pricey compared to the franchise's.

My wife is from Columbia, MO and her sister lives there. We visit Columbia with some frequency. We also have at least one dinner at Shakespeare's Pizza. The pizza is delicious, the atmosphere is friendly, and Shakespeare's is kid friendly. Shakespeare's Pizza is the quintessential college town pizza place... and that's a good thing. The staff appear to be local... More

Memorable pizza in a family friendly venue. Bring the kids to play with dough! Great ingredients, lots of options, unique decor, humor, and fun.

No one does it better. Deserves the hype. You are safe with any toppings. We get pepperoni (it's cut more thickly than most places) and veggie.

Shakespeare's was busy even on a weeknight when college is out for the summer. Pizza .was delicious and staff was friendly. The only downside is that it was noisy.

Whenever we are in Columbia we have to stop by Shakespeare's for pizza and salad. The pizza is thin crust but oh so good. The food is always good. They have tables for large groups. They have a full bar that is open after 4:30 pm on weekdays.

I really didn't enjoy Shakespeare's this particular time. My sister was visiting and we decided to order. Will most likely not order again. :(
