There is no other place in the entire world where you can get a pizza like this. It's got a crispy bottom crust with just a bit of chewiness. It's not as thick as deep dish pizza, and not as thin as so called NY style pizza. Some say it's upside down because the toppings are under the sauce, but... More

I love their upside down pizza. The cheese and sausage is actually under the sauce. It is great!! It is a nice change and you can eat in or take it out.

Sauce slapped on top the pizza after its cooked makes it unique. Grew up in this down and every time I now travel thruway I stop....delicious. Get it to go it saves windshield time. PS. This...

I have no idea what is so great about this pizza. With over 20 pizza parlor's in Utica, NY, I would not rate this as that great. They put out an average pizza at an above average price. However, it does comes in a sturdy cardboard box. So, it's all bad.

I have been eating here for the past 50 years. The receipt has not changed . You can also buy sandwiches and other pasta dishes like meat ball tunnels or sausage. The sauce can also be purchased in quart jars it has a flavor of it's own.

The pizza is number 1! People come from all over to have their pizza. It's been in business since the Grandfather and is fantastic. They also have other food too.

Once again, got a large cheese crispy and thin pizza. Can you get a better pizza than this? No. They have been amazing for years.

Best pizza of its kind in town. We order E-B-A (everything but anchovies). Its a thicker, square, Sicilian style pie... No thin crust here.
