Relaxed atmosphere, good service , good prices and great pizza and Italian dishes. Nothing like the 10 cut rectangle pizza. Toppings are great and they are plentiful.

In my opinion this restaurant has the best pizza in Troy. I've been coming to this place for pizza since high school which is a long time ago. When anywhere near this location and hungry I stop her for some food. The quality of the pizza and service is excellent. This place has been here since my high school days... More

Having attended La Salle in the mid 50's, it was great to once again visit this iconic site. As a group of kids we always put away a couple of the multi slice rectangle pies, however my capacity seldom exceeds 2 slices today. Other than an additional room little has changed, especially the quality of the pizza and the great... More

This location was a staple for me growing up in Troy, NY. We stopped here after high school dances and athletic events. Time has past but this restaurant pizza is as good as ever. I've been back several times with family and friends. The food and service is excellent.

The food is certainly good, truly as good as I recall from a few decades ago. The decor looks like it was last updated about the time Gerald Ford pardoned Nixon. The service was indifferent for certain . If it weren't for the food quality I'd stay away for a few more decades

Whatever claim to fame this place may have had in the past , it is certainly over it. The space is very dated with slight musty smell and sticky feel. The red sauce is too acidic for my taste. Pizza is doughy ,toppings were fair. Service was slow and indifferent . A lot of the patrons seemed to be older... More

Red Front is a Troy institution! They've been around for at least 40 years and make the best pizza. The chicken parm and delmonico steaks are also excellent. Good prices and friendly staff - decent beer selection.

My husband and I lived on 2nd St for a year and we ate at the Red Front numerous time, not only because it was a short walk but because their pizza is amazing. We would only need to get a small and we would usually have 2 slices left over. They had Ommegang Rare Vos beer on tap which... More

I was absolutely appalled by the service and lack of interpersonal skills and conflict resolution by our waitress and 'owner' of the resturant when there was a discrepancy with our bill (we were overcharged). As a big group of friends who regularly go into the resturant and spend 100+ dollars every visit, being treated the way we were was surprising... More
