I just drove 1800 miles in part to eat some of this pizza. It's hard to describe. But I'll tell you it's worth the near hundred dollar shipping fee if you don't live near by.

Family tradition to purchase pizza at O'scugnizzo at least a few times per year. Love the sauce and upside down pizza it's always fun! Staff are always friendly and quick service each time we go.

Don't care for their pizza, although a lot of people love it. I think they call it upside down pizza, with the sauce being on the top.

We like to try local pizza when traveling, and after reading other reviews, decided O'scugnizzo sounded interesting. After a long day of walking and driving, we were tired and did not want to go to the pizza shop, so had our order delivered. The pizza arrived on time as promised, and was piping hot. It was like nothing I've ever... More

This is the sort of place that you have to go to once just so that you can say you've been there. The pizza is served upside down (sauce on the top). They do what they do well and they've been doing it so long... why change anything? Prices are reasonable, the staff is friendly, and the dining room is... More

The place has been around over 100 years for a reason. The sign says "king of pizza" for a reason! There's no place in the country that I know of that can do pizza the way they do. If your in Utica,search out the original location and try it for yourself. You won't be disappointed!

Grab a menu, order at the counter, grab your own drinks & they will bring the food to you at your table. Pretty nice guys working. I recommend just pepperoni & cheese on a large crust. We got a large with more toppings & think basic would be best next time! Thanks guy.

Whenever someone visits me in Utica, I make it a point to take them here. Their pizza is a Utica staple and is unrivaled in taste, value, and local flavor
