Christian's is a C'ville classic -- nothing pretentious just great pizza and calzone. Good lemonade too for those long summer nights on the downtown mall.

Right on the downtown mall, so convenient to drop in and enjoy. Try a calzone, too. Service with a smile. Often very busy, so finding a seat inside might be hard.

Ate here on a Friday night and got right in. Just had pepperoni and it was great NY style pizza. The crust was good with a little crunch to it. Not a ton of sauce (which I like). Good prices, too!

Christians has great NY style pizza in a lot of interesting varieties. It is a very popular Cville institution with 3 locations. Favorites include the Tomato, Basil & Mozzarella or the Hawaiian. Definitely worth a visit when in Cville.

This is a great place for having a quick lunch or supper and enjoying the downtown mall of Charlottesville. They have a large variety of pizzas, calzones and salads. I stopped by several times and every time I tried a different kind. All of them were very good.

Came here with the family and the kids wanted pizza, I wasn't thrilled for another typical pizza place... Well this was far from that! So happy we went, NY thin style pizza, absolutely delicious. I'm a pizza snob and this was fabulous. Not sure if I'll ever be back this way but if I do, I'm definitely coming back! Also... More

After attempting to eat at another pizza place a block away we stumbled upon this little pizza joint! It was 12:00am, we were starving and ordered a slice ( 1 pepperoni, 1 spinach/feta) So so happy! The crust was crisp on the outside but light on the inside of the crust! I wish it wasn't so late I would have... More

This is my family's favorite place to eat and people watch on the downtown mall! Love the pizza!! It's a small place, but we could usually get enough room for our family of 6, whether indoors or outdoor seating.

I know I'm not the only person to eat Christian's Pizza at least once a week. It really is the best pizza in C'ville.

Love this place!! Wish it wasn't the only affordable place on the Downtown Mall though! They are friendly, quick, and have outdoor seating and great bar stool seating that looks out on the downtown mall which is a favorite spot for kids to sit :)
