Great pizza! A slice is huge and the thick crust is so crunchy! It was so good a got another slice and ate it all. Wish we had pizza like this in Minnesota! Sever was Vianey she is fantastic! Music is great. Loved the atmosphere. Can't wait to come again and bring friends!

We had a wonderful time with a group of about 25 people on the roof. We reserved it. The food was great. The beverages were good and the service was excellent

Birthday choice. Best choices of pizza. My favorite is seafood. Inside and outside dinning. Upstairs or downstairs. Get there early on weekends. Or get there late. Must be many others favorite too. It has always been busy. Offer other choices on menue. But we just get the pizza.

This may be the best pizza I've ever had. Only partly because I've had some bad pizza lately. I don't really like thick crust on my pizza, but this was phenomenal. The crust was light, not chewy. Crispy, not soggy, but also not burned on the bottom, with just enough red sauce. Why can't anyone else get this right? A... More

Best pizza I've ever had!! and that includes Detroit, New York City, Chicago, Rome, and Florence pizzas!! Great selection of topping and awesome combination pizzas - I had a Rockefeller style that was amazing that included smoked oysters and several cheeses. Other members in our party had a Hawaiian style, cheese-5, Stromboli, all were amazing!! The location is right under... More

I have nothing bad to say about Bottom's Up Pizza. It is one of the best that I've eaten at in Richmond. The atmosphere is great and they have a few options for seating preferences. If you are in Downtown Richmond - definitely stop by and give it a try - you won't be sorry!

My family went here for dinner last night based on a suggestion from a neighbor. The neighbor touted the pizza as the best ever. Since I'm from New York and have always held NY pizza as the gold standard I had to try it. I have eaten pizza all over the world and will tell you this pizza is really... More

The pizza was big and of high quality. The service was great we had a waiter named Gavin and he was attentive and knew his products. We had a long train pass overhead and it was noisy but also funny. Along with the pizza we had an order of wings and I loved the sauce. A great place for a... More

I waited all week to have my "cheat meal", and what a terrible experience. I ordered an alcoholic beverage, it tasted bitter and was quite boring. For dinner I ordered Chicken Alfredo pasta. It came out looking like water with noodles stacked in a pile. I specifically advised the bartender I didn't want my meal remade. He stated he would... More

The train came overhead while we were eating. Rather un-nerving as it shook the building a little. No way, I'd eat outside under/near the track. Forget the train, it's a very, very noisy restaurant, people having to shout across the table to one another. Our server Travarse did a good job of handling 20 people in our group. All orders...
