The pizza here is the best I have ever eaten! I got a great pepperoni! It just tasted fresh and the crust was perfection. Highly recommend a visit if in Baltimore,MD. I will be coming back.

They are the first pizzeria in Baltimore and they certainly stayed old school; the tiny place is very cozy and feels quite authentic Greek style cafes with the murals on the wall. Being my first time here, I was surprised that our take out wasn’t in a pizza box. Our cute grande pizza was wrapped up in butcher paper on... More

The pizza here is not to be missed!! Ask the server for her suggestions. The place is small, located in an old townhouse. If you go on Friday or Saturday night(5 -closing) there is a small downstairs that you can wait in until a table is ready. Oh by the way, the beer is really cold and only $3.00. Very... More

Myself the wife and oldest daughter visited friends in Baltimore. They suggested eating at Matthew's Pizza. They said and I agree it is the best pizza anywhere. We arrived about 4:00 on a Tuesday afternoon and were the only customers there (it is small so get there early). We had salad, one had a sandwich and three different pies (the... More

Service: We came in around 7:30 on a Saturday night and was seated right away. It was very busy with all the tables being full and about 4 people waiting by the counter for take out. There were about two waitresses taking care of customers at the 10 or so tables and two people behind the counter taking care of... More

I love it for the delicious pizza and house salad. So amaaaaaazing!!!!!! The menu allows you to make your own pizza if you don't... More

For many years Matthew's Pizzeria was almost perennially listed on various rankings as the best pizza place in Baltimore. It's a Baltimore classic. There are a few relatively new places that now often up-end Matthew's on best of Baltimore pizza lists. If you know your Baltimore pizza, you know what those places are. However, if Baltimore has a pizza place... More

This Pizza Rocks! I have eaten pizza in Chicago, Youngstown Napoli and Venice and I vouch for this pizza as some of the best I have ever had. It isn't the biggest pizza but the fresh ingredients and crispy crust make it top notch indeed.

Well, having Matt's on our bucket list for awhile definitely did not disappoint! Well worth the trip while spending the day at the National Aquarium. (Only 2 miles away) I first put Matt's on my radar after seeing it featured on the Food Network on the top 10 pizzeria's in the country! On that show they featured a pizza that... More

I've never lived in Baltimore, but as my wife grew up a few blocks away we've been coming here a couple of times a year for over 30 years. When we first started going we looked at the photos on the wall from 1947 and realized that even the furniture hadn't been changed. Now there is new furniture and bright... More
