I'm particular when it comes to pizza. This place came recommend to me and I decided to try it out. Pizza tasted great. Reasonably priced. It is definitely a busy place, especially during peak times. Even so, things moved pretty​ quickly. If you're​ not walking, parking could be a bit of an inconvenience but it's downtown so that is to... More

Other reviewers are correct. The pizza is much above the average in Albany, but the place has that bus terminal vibe..."Bus for Cleveland now boarding gate 9!" Sure...grab a table and try to enjoy that nice big slice...Loys a luck...It figures one of the few good pizza places in Albany would be located in this twilight zone near the TU.

Pizza was good. The only thing, the place looked a little bit sketchy. We got a couple of slices to go because the tables were filled up and it was small inside. Slices tasted great!!

Ok so this place was recommended when I inquired about "good pizza" as a native Manhattan girl. I love pizza but a trip to an old Pizza shop in Spanish Harlem (Ray's Pizza) left me feeling extra picky about where to get pizza upon my return to the Captial District. I've been here 3 times since being told about it... More

This pizzeria is conveniently located right next to the Times Union Center. We stopped by for a quick lunch and the place had a long line. This is typically an indication that the food is very good. The line went very quickly so we were eating in no time. We tried several of their slices. Our favorite was the pizza... More

Perfect spot between games of the MAAC Basketball Tournament. Fast service and very good pizza. They have a large variety of pizza types as well.

This is the best pizza in the capital region. Only problem is why did they stop using real chunk sausage and go to the sliced crap?

We were a group of five eating before a basketball game. The place is quite popular so there's a bit of a line a could be waiting for a table. We did fine in both areas. Pizza was good and inexpensive by my count. Two pieces and a medium drink for $7.50. Liked it!

I was in town for business and checked the reviews on TripAdvisor for local pizza shops. The food rated good so I placed and order for delivery. The delivery was right on time and the food was good, no complaints.
