Awesomely delicious! The staff were nice! It's not in the best neighborhood, but the pizza is worth it! Affordable too! We got the 20' pizza cut in 16 slices!

Alley Cat does pizza right. Just the perfect balance of cheese and sauce. Every variety we've tried has been delicious. The pizzas are always consistently prepared. The extra large size is the biggest pizza around and it is very reasonably priced. Whenever we're in the area, we order a pizza to go and drive 45 minutes to get home before... More

Alley Cat Pizzeria came highly recommended for a history of terrific pizza,and customer service, when I moved to Manchester over 10 years ago. Having patronized Alley Cat regularly for a decade, I am never let down. We have been spoiled such that we can't eat pizza from any where else in the state. Great sauce, great crust, great toppings; the... More

Good NY pizza but not as good as it use to be. Very busy place but we'll organized. Delivery available if you live in the area. 20" pizza is awesome. Hopefully it it will regain some of it's "groove"

They have very good pizza here. I like that they name their pizza types with different cat names, e.g., 'fat cat', 'aristocat'. Clever. I usually order plain cheese, but I tried their feta and spinach (Aristocat) and it was great. This place has been around for decades --old school.

I don't like greek style pizza and it's tough to find Italian style crust, but Alley cat does it and does it very well. The meatball and green pepper pie is my favorite - aka the TOM CAT pizza with peppers. I also like the Chicken Parm pizza (Fancy Cat).

Pizza is very good NY style pizza. The location can be concerning in the evening. My overall concern was watching the person handle my dirty money then go off and make the pizza. I haven't been back.

Used them for a birthday party. Read other reviews and did not see them as rude. They were nice and the food was good but not as great as everyone says. Would use again.

Having visited the Currier Art Museum in Manchetser NH on a Sunday, there weren't a great deal of places to eat lunch, so we had a 12 inch cheese and tomato pizza and a garden salad from the Alley Cat Pizzeria for less than $10, which we ate in the local park - delicious! Also, the guys serving were really... More

This place is not pretty by location or its entrance... Thats a fact. You may be distracted or concerned rolling up. You can bet on one thing, solid pizza. This is a creative joint... And they move a serious volume. The quality of the ingredients is very good. I would recommend for sure!
