Good pizza during the day, but even better when you are leaving the bars at night. Very easy to grab a slice on the way back home.

I notice that the only bad review is from someone with only one review. Makes you wonder about the competition because Paesans Pizza is AWESOME! They have an excellent thin crust pizza with just enough crisp on the bottom [if you order by the slice - the rewarming is what does the trick!] and a nice fresh tomato sauce and cheese. My biggest problem is deciding if I want their chicken parm pizza or the buffalo chicken pizza or the chicken marsala pizza or the veggie slice or the bacon ranch slice or even a plain slice or... Well, you get the idea! 2 slices and a soda for less than $6 makes for a filling lunch. The place is always busy despite 4 competing pizzerias within 400 yards of the place - including two right across the street - so you know they are doing something right. I just wish we could get something even close to this good North of the Twin Bridges!

If this is the "Best Pizza in Albany" then Albany has some pretty [--] pizza!!!!! I live 10 minutes north of Albany and have had better pizza from our "crappy" pizza places. The sauce is overwhelmed with tomato paste taste and is otherwise bland and blah. The dough is like a crispy wafer ...like a frozen pizza you left in the toaster oven for too long. Skimpy with the cheese and of medium quality at that. and the toppings left something to be desired.....like "shoulda ordered a plain cheese and got the cheaper piece" desire. One Veg medley slice and a "round sicilian" slice and a small fountain drink for $6.50!!!!!!! HOLY CRAP!!!! and crap it was. I could have got almost 2 gallons of gas for that and it would have smelled better!!!!! Avoid this place unless your into eating pizza not even suitable to feed the homeless after hours with the leftovers. I could actually see an Italian homeless person slappin the [--] out cha for feedin em dis. Order somewhere else and get your money's worth. Big Chain in the capital district Bad Deal/Bad pizza.....no wonder they have to come up with all those attempt at bad comedy in their commercials and advertisements. Bottom line.....GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.....Taco Bell uses cat food quality meat and the food taste better there!!!!!!!!!
