I've been in Richmond for almost 3 years and came to the conclusion that I will never bust a decent slice ever again. Don't get me totally wrong, Bottom's Up Pizza in Shockoe Slip is FANTASTIC Sicilian style pizza. What I really wanted though was a fold in half style slice, not caked down with TONS of cheese. I wanted the super thin crust, with quality cheese and sauce, served in a pizza oven, not in a gourmet brick oven with fancy mushrooms, etc...This place came pretty darned close...not perfect, but enough to make me smile on this first bite!!! As for the wait staff, pretty much what you would expect, high schoolers, etc - I could care less about that on my hunt for a decent slice!!!!!
I read many, many reviews yesterday on lots of pizzerias - I really, really wanted a good pie and refuse to believe they can't figure this out only a few hours away from NY. Turns outs the owners are from Jersey (close enough). I am glad we went, it didn't disappoint..my only complaint......................the bathrooms. For real, there was a huge whole in the wall stuffed with paper towels and the lighting was "intermittent". Upon washing my hands I noticed other small drill wholes all over the bathroom - seriously, CLEAN this up owners! it's just plain creepy!!!! Otherwise, nice pizzeria, nice decor, typical staff, good pizza makers!!
