Portland >Eat Pizza!
Eat Pizza's large, open windows and uniquely triangular dining room are as reminiscent of New York as their traditional style pizza. And keeping with tradition this pizzeria also offer salads, wings and Pizza Alla Casalinga. Breaking from tradition, Eat Pizza offers the uncommon "mini" pizza in lieu of pizza by the slice.
This "slice" of a pizza joint is really fantastic! Walk-in and have your pizza made within 15 min & it's a terrific pie! A small eat in area that's reminisced of a no-frills NYC pizza joint. Waitstaff that is friendly and beers on tap.
best delivery. my boyfriend and i love pizzA, and this is our favorite order in. really good pie and salads are huge and yummy!
Cool Pizza. They could have been busy but when i went there it took the staff awhile to even take my order...however... i understand that this happens. the pizza was delish and the toppings were generous. i plan on supporting this indie-pizza on my lunch breaks. yum!
We appreciate the kind words regarding your tasty pizza! I'm sure you'll get faster service in the future. We're usually pretty good. Make sure you get a punch card when you come in next time, too. If we forget to offer, just ask. Thanks, John and the gang.
A delicious, friendly place. This is a really great place. The owners there are friendly and seem very enthusiastic about their business. What's really unique about it is there's so many options. You can choose from marinara, cream cheese, basil cream, pesto, garlic olive oil and ricotta sauces, different cheeses and lots of different toppings, like roasted garlic and sun dried tomatos. There's so many different delicious combinations, and other great options on the menu. And your order comes out FAST. A good choice for when you're in the neighborhood with a pizza craving.
Thank you for your kind words and support! We are a group of passionate people taking great pride in the food we prepare.
Nothing special! You can find better elsewhere!.
We've been in Portland for a year now....moved here from Boston, and we are STILL looking for "our favorite" pizza restaurant. We read the glowing reviews for EAT PIZZA, so last Friday decided to give it a go. We had planned to dine in the restaurant, but there are literally four tables; and they are so tiny, there is no possible way to fit a large pizza on any of them. So we changed our order "to go". We were impressed that there are no extra charges for any of the toppings, so we ordered a "giant" pizza with sausage, green pepper, onion and mushroom....plus a small house specialty pizza "alla casaligna." The specialty pizza was quite tasty. However the "giant" pizza was very disappointing! It is clear how the owners are able to give you "unlimited" toppings for no additional charge: they almost don't put anything on the pizza! Please charge me for toppings, but put something on my pizza! Also in my book, the backbone of any reputable pizza restaurant is the quality of the crust. EAT PIZZA's crust is very thin; not in a good way like a brick oven style or a delicious charred piece of New York pizza....its just thin...not chewy....not flavorful....just thin. So was it worth the $44 bucks (which included two beers while we waited)....absolutely not. Of course it would have only been $40, but the "dude" behind the counter asked as he handed back my credit card for my to-go order...."how much do you want to leave for a tip". I added four bucks....I thought it best!
In conclusion, my gut tells me the "glowing remarks" about EAT PIZZA must be from the owners and staff themselves. Surely there are not that many Portlanders that really don't know what makes good pizza.
We would like to have the opportunity to make this right. It's entirely possible that you received a pizza made beneath our standards. We had a short period of time where our dough was being stretched improperly causing it to be too thin in the middle. This will affect the overall quality of the pie. We have more integrity than to post comments about ourselves. Please contact me and I'll work with you. Thanks, John.
EAT PIZZA IS THE BEST!!!. We order Eat Pizza quite often and I have to say they are the best pizza we have ever had! For real! They consistently make quality and delicious pizza every single time! And there selection on unlimited toppings is unbelievable. I hope they stay around forever and become a Portland monument, because they honestly make the best pizza in town.... Thanks eat pizza!
We truly appreciate the enthusiam with which you enjoy our pizza!
Best Cheese Pizza in Portland- The Alla Casalinga. My partner & I are HUGE pizza lovers & we've been wanting to try Eat Pizza for a few months but have not got around to it until today. WE hoped to get slices & they don't do that. Only mini pizza's for $5.99 each which was a wee bit more than we wished to spend. Then what caught our eye was the Pizza Alla Casalinga. It's a very simple pie, but MY GOD was it GOOD! The crust was rectangle shaped and had an herb garlic olive oil infusion that made it crispy in the best way. Then there was the right amount of cheese with sauce ON TOP of the cheese with just the right amount of spice. A little bit of basil added to the mix was on the money. This pizza was so fresh and delightful that we've been telling everyone all day about it. For something uncomplicated yet amazing, try this pie.
We think that you're exactly right. Thank you!
Delicious, high quality food at low costs, served by friendly folks. A+. I'm a frequent diner in the Portland area, and am familiar with all of the traditional, chain and upscale restaurants in the southwestern area of town. I've been seeking a local place that produces great food at a reasonable cost, operates with venerable and prompt service, and sticks to their high standards with impeccable consistency. Eat Pizza does all of things and remains humble, which is wonderful. I know that if I made food this delectable, I'd set the prices higher than any of the other food chains in town. When contrasted with Hot Lips, Eat Pizza dominates the category of appetizers and sides, most particularly their chicken wings. The salads, sandwiches and pastas are also top-notch, and the pizza is, of course, superb. The pie at Hot Lips can be more filling and delicious in the restaurant, but as for delivery, Eat Pizza is my choice every time. Note that they do deliver EVERYTHING on the menu, making this more than just the typical pizza joint.
We checked with the city, they are thinking about removing one of the Eastbound lanes on Burnside to make way for some extra parking for our BOOMING business. Seriously, though, don't be afraid. You'll likely find a street parking spot within a couple of blocks. If you are just coming in to get take-out, call us when you're close and we'll toss the pizza in your car as you roll by. You don't even have to come to a complete stop. If all else fails, try the street spots next to Fred Meyer. Turnover there is high so your sure to get a spot within a few minutes. Thanks for coming down and don't hesitate to order for delivery.
A good pizza on it's own terms!.
I believe that the joy of pizza as cuisine is in enjoying the uniqueness of each pie offered by any given pizzeria. Really, what other simple food could vary so dramatically between restaurants? I love pizza, and I've eaten pizza from coast to coast, from New York and Baltimore, Wilkes-Barre and Scranton, to California and Portland, and everywhere in between. Eliminating the lowest of the low (Pizza Hut, eh....), I have very rarely met a fresh slice that I wasn't at least content with. One of my thrills is trying out new pizzerias, and by-the-slice is usually my favorite means of exploration.
I say all this as a preface to this review because, when it comes to pizza, Portland transplants overwhelmingly have one thing in common, and that is their complaints about a slice in this city. Friends, I've lived here 10 years and I have to say I've had some of the best pizza ever in Portland. From my point of view, if you are going to complain up and down that "it's not like the pizza in Long Island" then maybe you should shut up and get on a plane headed east.
Now that I've gotten that out of my system, I present to you Eat Pizza. Is it a classic-styled pie, crisp and reminiscent of the old country? No. Is it Chicago deep or New York city wide? No. I could go on, but what it really reminds me of is a pizza I'd make at home for myself and friends, and I've had some experience. It's fresh, it's chewy, and it's good. Toppings are free and when I said, "How about making it a veggie pizza, your choice," they came up with one deliciously topped pie.
Eat Pizza is good bet, so take it on it's own merits, and not by comparison. Order it to-go and be there on time to be sure you get it hot. A "mini" pizza is a good big-slice equivalent. Add garlic knots, and you are set. It's local and independent, so try it first before you dial for a Dominoes or the Hut. I wish they were open later--I'd order more often.
GOOD NEWS!!! WE'VE CHANGED OUR HOURS! NOW, YOU CAN ENJOY THE EAT PIZZA DELICIOUSNESS UNTIL MIDNIGHT EVERY DAY. COME IN FOR HAPPY HOUR FROM 3-6 AND FROM 10-MIDNIGHT DAILY.
Believe it! This place is good!.
I'm not a pizza fanatic. But, Eat Pizza is conveniently located across Burnside from a video rental store, and as a coupon-wielding local, I decided to give it a try one lazy evening. Despite the variety of other creative combos, I decided for the house special, the Alla Casalinga. It normally comes in two square sizes, but they cordially agreed to make me one as a round mini. I've only been nack once, but the workers were very friendly both times. They also offer sandwiches, four different salads, and even fruit smoothies! I only wish they made whole grain crusts...
(the alla casalinga was very good, by the way)
Best Pizza in Portland.
We were starving for pizza and I remembered there was a place about a block away, but couldn't remember the name. So I leaned out the window with binoculars and saw "Eat Pizza." What could be easier?
10 mintues after calling in our order we were walking home with a delicious pie. We ordered the Alla Casalinga. It was the best pizza I've had in Portland and maybe the best ever. The crust is baked in olive oil and has that cruchiness without being too dry or tough. The sauce is simple, the cheese is soft but not stringy. With fresh basil and oregano, it's possibly the perfect pizza.
The staff was super helpful over the phone and very nice in person. It's a great location for us, about a block away, but I would travel a lot further for pizza like this. Luckily, I don't have to. You should definitely try it. You won't be disappointed.
