“Unfortunately aweful”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

I'm usually never in the habit of writing reviews on places I eat but on this New Years Eve Day I must,

Having driven by Bellshire Pizza a few times and knowing that it's been in business for 40 years and given that it was really close by our home, my wife and I decided to try this place over The Mellow Mushroom and I have to say were so sadly disappointed.

The owner ( 2nd year) was friendly and the place did have a nice nastalgic vibe but thats where any good rating ended.

We ordered a Veggie Special and the Pizza itself had a terrible burnt taste and the Veg's were absoultely bland and tastless. It was so sad watching my wife trying every condiment on the table "in vain" to add flavor.

If the owners happend to read this I would hope they might bo back and re-visit the recipes and seasoning the origanal owners created and used that seemed to keep this place in business for the first 30 years.

It would have been great to have Portabella Mushrooms as opposed to the cheap unseasoned and tasteless mushrooms they use. Tomatos and fresh Spinich would have also done wonders as well.

Until that happens I have to recommed exploring any other option but this one if you're craving a good Pizza. Sorry guys...

“Pizza--The way it was made when the store opened”
Reviewed September 20, 2010

The new owners have brought back the taste that got lost through the years. Their thin crust pizzas are the real thing. No preservatives and no returning after-taste.

A young couple are working hard to make a small business work in a MEGA-business world. Try the food, you will return time after time. Worth the money and I have had some of the very best pizza in the Northeastern US. Not the same as in the East, but quality of its own.

They use local products from local businesses and support the local schools and community in a variety of ways.

The atmosphere is like a real pizza restaurant, welcome and VERY friendly in a family atmosphere. Go play some checkers, old video games, or board games. Old fashion fun for the family.

Check it out!!!

“Great pizza, crispy & flavorful!”
Reviewed May 13, 2009

We tried it after Papa Johns ticked me off one to many times. Great tasting pizza, close to home, fast and friendly! Always our first choice for carry-out pizza, but only if you want pizza, can't get wings here!

“Neat Neighborhood Joint”
Reviewed June 26, 2008

I wouldn't suggest Bellshire Pizza for travelers because it's not worth going out of your way for, but it is good if you're in the area and want a quick bite to eat.

Bellshire Pizza has been in business at least 30 years, owned and operated by the same person for that whole time. It's good pizza at a reasonable price. Better than the chain pizza joints.

Worth a stop if you're in the neighborhood, but probably not worth driving across town for.

Reviewed June 21, 2008

This was quite honestly the best pizza in the area. Perfectly crunchy crust and lots of toppings.
