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.

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
