Traditional New York style pizza- the stuff that dreams are made of. You can get a whole pie or get pizza by the slice. The pizza by the slice were huge pieces!

A little hard to find but worth the effort. Rather simple tables and chairs ( limited seating but never full) with great pizza for little money.

Absolutely my favorite pizza in Rochester. Perfect blend of cheese and sauce. If you want authentic NY pizza this is the spot!

The Pizza Stop is a great New York style pizza place. The pizza is an authentic NY style, just as you would find down in the NYC area. They a have a ton of topping options. The staff is always friendly and welcoming.

I'm not sure what happened either, we've been making the same crust for 33 years now and I can tell you nothing has happened, since the early 1950's when my uncle came up with the dough recipie. You say we used to be very good,...More

Arrived at Riverside Hotel and didn’t feel like getting back in the car for dinner. Family and I walked to the Pizza Stop and ordered a Sicilian and it was delicious! The cheese was amazing and the sausage and pepperoni was great. Definitely would return...just...be careful walking thru the area.More

that isn't complete crap or a franchise (so mostly, crap). Tastes like the real thing from The City and you'd be hard-press to find a better slice upstate.

My cousin and I was just passing through the city and she had never had New York style pizza. After reading the review on here we stopped in. It was great! I am kind of a pizza sob since I worked in the business for...several years. My cousin is trying to figure out a way back there on our road trip. Make the stop. It was great!More

I grew up in NYC, so as far as pizza goes im a bit spoiled. And rochester, quite frankly, has quite a few less-than-wonderful pizza joints. But Pizza astop is authentic NY City style pizza, in a NY city themed setting..... big tasty slices at...a good price. I highly recommend it.More

Got a takeout pie for the wife and myself two nights ago. THIS is classic NYC thin crust pie. Actually, BETTER than most typical NYC pies, and we've had more than a few in our working days in Manhattan/Brooklyn. We also appreciate that they've got...a good selection of slices, too. We're long time customers of The Pizza Stop.Sorry it took so long to write a well-deserved review.More

I arrived in Rochester and as I walk to the office from the hotel you pass by many businesses that are no longer open and just boarded up here so by passing by this location it just didn't say anything BUT with all fairness when...the guys at the office said to go to Pizza Stop for lunch I was like REALLY and they said YES REALLY. so I did and it was REALLY GOOD. Never judge a book by its cover people say it all the time and we always seem to be amazed by all of are prejudgements. NYC pizza is good.More

For the best thin crust pizza ever. Been folding and eating this pizza for 15+ years (state street location). Jim gets it right every time. Just go there and try it and you'll know what I'm talking about!! Classic cheese always my 1st choice but...I have enjoyed all the choices available.More
