Amid all the fancy shopping on 23rd, it was nice to find a place where you could just relax and have a good piece of pizza. No worries about appearances, prices, or kids feeling stifled in a stuffy upscale establishment. Love that the guy behind the counter rang up my order on an old fashioned push button cash register. Some... More

This was one of the first NY style pizza places in Portland, if not the first. It's owner, a transplant from NYC brought the complete package: great pizza at a good price, a cool little shop, and just the right amount of NY attitude. It has hardly changed in 20-plus years when I lived just a couple of blocks away,... More

We came here because of the online reviews. And the pizza was in fact pretty good. The sauce was delicious, had a little kick to it that I really enjoyed. The service on the other hand was a mixed bag. We needed to make some adjustments to our order, but the man taking our order wouldnt listen. He kept interrupting... More

We were in northwest Portland and needed a really quick lunch. Spotted Escape from NY Pizza and decided to give it a try. You can order a full pizza or buy by the slice. We just wanted a slice. There were 4 different pizzas to choose from. Cheese, Pepperoni, Canadian Bacon & Pineapple and Tomato & Onion. We chose Canadian... More

Came in after a massage since I was craving pizza. Staff greets you once you come in, and you are taken care of right away. Prices are great, and the slices are just like the ones I've tried in new york. They take card or cash but since the prices are good try not to use the card for small... More

Very good NY style pizza. A bit inconsistent, but overall, one of the better pieces I've had. Hip decor, and seemed to be where a lot of the locals ate

This pizza is not the best for sure! It is okay but for sure I've had way better. People working there are not too friendly. I wish they had a better variety of pizza! Place needs a little cleaning. I would not go back there just because I think it wasn't a place for me!!!

Been going here for years. An institution. Thin crust, New York style. Cheese a regular offering but pepperoni, bacon others. Whole pies to go or by the slice.

I have found my pizza nirvana!! Best pizza I have had in Portland. The cheese is all mozzarella (the very best for next day cold pizza, which is my fave). The crust and sauce are perfect. I want more! It's worth the drive from Hillsboro.

Thank Llilith
