The staff was great and very helpful throughout the meal. Cassandra, our waitress was great and it seemed like everyone working there loved their job. Oh, and the pizzas were fantastic as... More

If you love thin crust pizza with fresh ingredients, then you will love Coals. Their Caesar salad is excellent too. They have a very good bourbon list, they even have Pappy's.

This place is hidden in a small shopping area. The atmosphere is elegant but not overwhelming. The Caesar Salad was good. Nice touch to have the tempura anchovi topping it. The pizza is big enough for two to share

The sauce, cheese, and toppings... More

What a nice surprise. The pizza is on a thin type crust with great crunchy.flavor but not tough. Tons of great toppings in addition to great looking salads and sandwiches. The build your own pizza can easily be shared. Enjoy!

We were there on Sunday and took out of town guests. Had the "Old Louisville" and it was outstanding. Hungry now just thinking about it. Only wish it was a larger place. It's our favorite pizza in Louisville.

Visited this place while in town for business. It was so good, we went back in the same week. Wish I lived close enough to drive to it all the time. Usually don't eat pizza crust but it was so good, I ended up eating it there. So delicious!

The staff was nice and dressed for success. They were quick with refills and the pizza was delicious. My wife and I had the Butchertown pizza and it was great. Highly recommended.
