We had lunch there on Sunday 8/21/16. Had planned to try The Skinny Pancake, but apparently so did the rest of the population! Too long a line there. We tried several other places nearby and all were either full or closed. We branched out a little further and came upon the Positive Pie 2. Since we were really hungry and... More

Wandering through the town of Montpelier and were feeling like pizza. Saw this place and thought we would give it a try. Decor is terrible, which did take us aback but we decided to try it. We were served water first which the waitress knocked and spilled over the menu and table. She apologized but did not clean it up.... More

The pizza can be great, but it does vary, depending on the staff. Even at its worse, it is several steps above any chain. The Margherita is consistently good, with fresh basil leaves and fresh mozzarella. For a while they had buffalo chicken pizza, which I thought was great. The fried brussel sprouts are a great appetizer, as are the... More

Went on Sunday night as part of a group of eight. Only had to wait for about 10 minutes for them to set up tables for the group. Server was really great and didn't even flinch when we told her (up front) that we all needed individual checks since we all work for different companies. Tried Poutine for the first... More

Great pizza, with light and fresh ingredients. Terrific prices. Relaxed vibe. Clearly the locals come here (always a good sign). Server Kelsey was terrific. Try the Honey Hopper cider as a palate refresher.

The service is decent, the food is very inconsistent. Every time I go there it seems they have an entirely new staff making and serving the food. They quality of product is good but the preparation and accuracy often lacks. Not worth the high costs on your bill.

Sat at the bar and ordered drinks, wings and a burger. Wings were good, bartender was great, burger was overcooked and came with ramekin of ketchup smeared with some kind of white sauce around the outside. Not a horrible experience other than it was about 100 degrees and all the employees were sweating a concerning amount

Crispy crust, authentic red sauce, choice of toppings. Nice draft beer list, too. Big city pizza in our beautiful small town. Slices available as well if you are in a hurry. We're happy regulars here.

Whenever the weather invites, take the State street tables. Service was ok, maybe a bit slow. Calamari was excellent, but ask for extra arrabbiata sauce. Beer was cold and prompt. Salads were a bummer. Both needed extra dressing and the greens were limp and forgettable. In a downtown trendy state capital main thoroughfare a place like this should be much... More

Had a nice meal at Positive Pie. Was able to sit outside on the sidewalk patio and enjoy the lovely weather in early July. Great beer selection and very good pizza. However, the service was incredibly slow which would be okay under some circumstances, but when you have two hungry little children in tow, we would have appreciated a bit... More
