The pizza was fresh and delicious! I would definitely go here again! We did "take out". Pizza was ready when we arrived.

We loved the pizza here. Ate way too much. Ordered 4 different pizzas for three adults and two kids. The four cheese is runny, messy and oh so yummy. Margarita was so good. Sausage and basil was my son's favorite. And we had an asparagus specialty pizza that I would eat every day if I could. All pizzas come on... More

I fell in love with Pizza Brutta in the fall, when I was looking for a pizza place that reminded me of a traditional Italian pizza, which of course meant it was cooked in a stone fired oven. This place is cheap and delicious, it also allows you to create custom pizza's. The staff is friendly and the wait isn't... More

Parking was challenging as the street is busy and we ended up choosing a 2 hour spot around the corner in the neighborhood behind it. The pizza was very flavorful and reasonably priced. I would recommend it to anyone!

After reading the reviews about this place, I was leery about trying. The reviews said it was a popular restaurant and usually had lines out the doors. But we decided to go there. Parking was alright. We parked a couple of blocks away and walked to it on Monroe St. We were surprised that there wasn't a line. We went... More

So good. Beet and feta salad 👌👌👌. We ordered and almost immediately got our food. I'm a strict vegetarian and the were willing to change any of the pizzas I was interested in to suit my dietary needs. They do have a build your own option as well. Plenty of seating in an adorable neighborhood. I wish they had a... More

I've been to Pizza Brutta 3 times and have always enjoyed the food. The first time I went was with my WHOLE family, a total of 9 ppl, which included 3 young children. It's not the best for kids or big groups because the seating is a little tight and the prices are high if your kid ends up not... More

I was shopping in the Monroe Street area and came across Pizza Brutta. I'm really glad that I did! I ordered a pizza with pepperoni and prosciutto. It came out promptly and was amazing. I also ordered one of their drag salads and a beer from their tap selection. I will definitely be going back soon.

We have eaten here multiple times! Our family has multiple likes and dietary needs so everyone orders their favorite! Menu choices are varied from traditional My wife and I love the beet salad and the mushroom pizza, the girls love the caprese sandwich!

We decided to eat here because of the excellent reviews and were not sorry for it! The line was almost out the door when we arrived but found we barely had enough time to make our choice by the time we got to the cash register! I don't even know how they cooked our pizza as quick as they did!... More
