While waiting for our harbor cruise across the street, we bopped into Bill's and got a really good slice of cheese -- hot and really good. Other pies coming out of the kitchen looked really good and the place was busy. Good stuff.More

So glad you enjoyed your slice and we hoped you loved our spot here on Portland's harbor too. When you're back you'll have to check out our killer Lobster rolls, made from scratch Clam Chowder, or any of our other soups, salads or great sandwiches...More

Tasteless pizza, on par with a $2 Walmart frozen thing. Stale atmosphere, not entirely cheap either for what you're getting. Would not recommend.More

The pizza was alright, it was cut into 6 big pieces which was kind of weird. It took about 10 minutes for them to take my order when there was only one person in front of me. Overall 7/10.

It's close to the Italian pizza, but nothing special and really expensive. And they are not fast enough.

We were not especially in any hurry, but the woman working that day was extremely slow, reheated our pizza slices, just added crumbs of meat on it, and couldn't cut the pizza.The taste of the meat was not good. Two customers waited long minutes just...More

There certainly isn't anything pretentious about Bill's but they make a great pizza as well a limited number of sandwiches and soup. We devoured a couple of slices and decided to try the meatball and marinara sub since I consider myself a devotee of them....More

Actually, we both had sandwiches in the pianni style (long sail with turkey, swiss, tomato and ranch dressing) and served right off the stove by a very nice young lady, who also provided some local tourist information.
