Love Sam's to grab a slice when downtown. Their selection is great and the pizza is excellent. Their crust is really good and the service is prompt.

This is a popular place after the bars close on a weekend night since they are open late but during the day they busy as well, as their pizza is very delicious.

We were hungry and short of time. Stopped by to grab a slice each. The pizza was very average, the place had lots of flies around the food, but the service polite. Not on my list anymore

They were great with my dietary restrictions, and the salad tasted fantastic. Customer service was exemplary.

The pizza is fin, but the music they sometimes has makes it even more inviting. A regular spot for locals to hang around. Slices are the preferred way to go

Sam's is a great place to grab a slice. They have other options too. I have sampled some of the grinders and all were good. I can never get past the pies they have on display and usually pick one of those. They have an open mike ameteur night here also. Anyway, very good place and mostly a lunch stop... More

I grew up in NYC not far from Little Italy. I know what pizza should be. When I moved out of the city I had to compromise my standards. Let me just say there are some basic expectations. Cheddar chees--not pizza. Canned beans--not pizza. Dry tasteless bread--not pizza. To the rest of the menu. I had a spinach salad. It... More

Because I have a broken arm my husband brought home two slices of their taco pizza and hungry as we were, neither of us could swallow a bite. Oversalted croissant-ish crust topped with -- brace yourself -- Canned black beans, some mystery cheese, mushy tomatoes, soggy taco chips, cheap BBQ sauce and ranch dressing. Throwing it out was an insult... More

Stopped here for a snack. This is the type of place that offers about a dozen different pizza options by the slice. Considering their imported water, sodas and beer, it's a bit disappointing that they include options like 'cheeseburger' pizza. Tried the fresh tomato, mozzarella and basil slices and they were good but the crust was far from authentic Italian.... More

The pizza we ate here was very good. We tried the cheese, broccoli and cheese, pepperoni, and white pizza and the slices were large and delicious. The staff was friendly and attentive. However, I would have loved little tags in front of each pizza with a description of the type of pie. We had to have the waitress tell us... More

This is an AMAZING pizza, late-night, live-music and coffee spot that should be on the list!
