The place to go for a slice of pizza to melt in your mouth. Favorite with locals and UVA students. Conveniently located on the Downtown Mall by the movie theater.

I was very underwhelmed by Christian's Pizza. The crust was overlooked so it wasn't "bendable", there was minimal cheese and the pizza is overwhelmed by toppings. I would go searching for a better place if you want real Italian style pizza.

I had the mushroom pizza and it was honestly the best pizza I've ever had! The crust is thin and crispy, perfect! Made a point to stop back on the way back home.

The slices are huge, and the pizza is amazing. We sat outside enjoying the sights and sounds of historic Main Street. Loved it!

There are two big-slice pizza joints on the Downtown Mall and I like both of them, but Christian's is better to sit down at. Inside or outside, the place is a perfect people-watching spot and is next door to the local cinema. The Omni and Marriott hotels are a block away, so the location is great for locals and visitors...

Close to NY pizza, but just a bit off that matk. For Virginia, however, it is excellent. Not cheap, but very good. Very popular among the UVA students when they are in town. Really busy on weekends. Would recommend calling ahead for takeout.

I personally love the toppings that they have as options. One of our favorites is the spicy chicken with peppers. Affordable fast and good.

On the mall this Christian's serves it up with value and fast. Small dining area so most take it out to enjoy under the trees on the sidewalk benches.

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.
