We searched high and low for half decent NY style pizza in Olympia and someone recommended Old School to us a few years ago. It has been the closest thing we can find to real NY style pizza in Lacey or Olympia and believe me, we've tried everywhere, yes, there too. Slices are thin, with chewy crust, the sauce is... More

We found a new place to enjoy a good pizza in Olympia Wa. the crust is great with fresh ingredients. The people who work here are very friendly and helpful. It is kind of a Bohemian place with old movie posters on the walls. It fits the downtown style of Olympia very well.

Their pizza by the slice is priced perfectly and their pinball table is a great added feature to their small pizzeria feeling.

Pizza by the slice, perfect crust. My favorite is the regular mixed with the unique pizzas - the vegan, the artichoke and cheese. Can't be beat!!!

For our last night in Olympia my daughter picked this place because it sounded more hip than the one I picked. Teens. Anyway the decor is definitely aimed at the hip crowd and the place was jumping. They serve pizza by the slice, whole pies, salads and calzones plus had beer on tap for those that like that stuff. We... More

They got it down....quality, variety, price. It's probably the best pizza around. They are ALWAYS busy. There's sufficient seating but always crowded. Pretty noisy but in a fun exciting sort of way.

I won't lie, the pizza is pretty bomb. That's really all that matters right. Didn't bother me that the whole server situation really didn't exist. And you expect it to be a little used up and dirty, cuz none of that matters.... Gimme delicious pizza, and that's what you'll get. Simple tasty pizza

This is my "go to" pizza joint when I'm in Olympia. The decor brings back fond memories of the 90s and earlier. Check them out!

Funky spot in downtown Olympia. Hipsters working hard to make some good za. Like the menu choices including the delicata squash, they said they'd have more/different squash selections available as we move into fall. Really like the pizza by the slice availability. Nice to not have to wait. People friendly. Definitely a down home place. Nothing fancy.

Simply the BEST pizza around.. Sell by the piece or pie !!! Great thin crust New York style and many non tomato based toppings as well
