If you want pizza that is not run-of-the-mill, this is the place for you. Gourmet toppings set this pizza parlor apart from the others. Good, friendly service, easy on your wallet. A nice night out with friends.

We've been on the 'Great Pizza Quest' recently and on a fluke decided to try Dewey's Pizza in Crestview Town Center (Crestview Hills/Erlanger). So glad we did and our expectations were shattered without breaking our budget.

Visited on March 29, 2014, during late lunch/early dinner time and we were seated right away, although the restaurant was full of chatty diners of all ages. Even the bar (great addition, btw) had full seats enjoying the beer and vino selections. The hostess was friendly and our server arrived at the table immediately. I was taking in the decor (very contemporary and clean) and then became mesmerized by the pizza chef pulling, pounding and twirling the dough in the big open kitchen window. The atmosphere is young, fresh and hip, while not exclusively hipsterish! The staff is a pleasing eclectic mix of personalities.

Our waitress (who was excellent, but name escapes me), took us through the menu, as it was our first visit. In a nutshell, Dewey's will prepare anything you want, to make you happy, as they can. Nice! We opted for a half and half large (and boy is it) 17" pizza. This pizza was over an inch larger and cheaper than our pizza the night before at Strong's Brick Oven Pizza. Already we were impressed.

Our half and half was a Ryan's Inferno and Socrate's Revenge. Half tangy/cool and half hearty/fresh. It seemed to be the perfect split. The wait time was not as long as expected. The pizza crust was perfectly thin and still had a bit of body to it. Whereas the pizza from Strong's seemed pasty and undercooked (maybe the Brick Oven type is suppose to be?). Dewey's pizza can be folded, rolled, sliced or fork-eaten easily. Each pizza is delivered pre-cut and thoroughly pre-cut - doing away with the extraneous slice server. Multiple server(s) attended our table, filling drinks, removing dishes, checking on us.

Our total bill was approximately $26.00 before tip. That included a 17" half and half pizza for about $21.00 and two drinks. It seems as if everything in March is madness and a show down. Dewey's definitely knocked out Strong's and we now wonder why we have missed all these years of Dewey's Pizza? We have some pizza-eating time to make up for and perhaps this is the most perfect pie, so far in the Great Pizza Quest of 2014.

P.S. That Ballpark Pizza sounds incredible, too! Love the seasonal specialties and rotating craft beer selections.

We arrived around 1:00 after seeing the aquarium next door. There was no wait. Service here was great. Multiple servers were constantly bringing refills for our beverages. We were a party of 6. We ordered pizzas and salads. The only thing we were disappointed was that there wasn't any breadsticks offered as an appetizer. They did offer to make some out of a pizza dough which was nice, but we didn't take them up on it. The salads were fantastic. Pizza was good too. Ours needed a tiny bit more sauce, but it was still very good.

being from NY its nearly impossible to find any decent or what I would call Pizza, and even more difficult to find a good or even real calzone.
while I have not tried every little pizza place in the area of the ones I have tried this is by far the closest I can get to real NY pizza.
none of the "chain" deliveries are even worthy of being called pizza and their versions of a calzone are a joke
a calzone must have ricotta cheese and definitely not any yellow cheese.
the sauce has a great flavor, not sweet (and it should not be) and a slight kick to it!
ingredients are very fresh and they are generous with them.
crust is very good and fairly thin perhaps the only thing they could do to improve it is use corn meal on the bottom. this helps to cook the crust more and adds a little flavor. but I am not complaining at all.
Calzones are fabulous and i can actually taste the ricotta cheese.
Caesar Salad is decent as well and the service is always pleasant with all servers assisting any table.

We had a family Christmas dinner at Dewey's and it was delicious... the service is always GREAT and the pizza is probably the best in town... LOVE the Edgar Allen Poe!! Nice selection of craft beers on tap as well.
