    Pizzicato: Slice of Pizza Pie, near your hotel.

    Pizzicato Pizzeria

    Realistically, if I were to tell you that this piece of pizza was as good as Chicago or New York City, you would probably doubt my ability to rate tips, and therefore not trust other recommendations that I put before you.

    Having said that, Pizzicato is probably the best slice of pie you will find in the Northwest. The spices in the sauce and the fresh basil on top really made this pizza for me.

    They sell by the slice, and have all kinds of salad variations for those on the healthy side of life.

    Favorite Dish: I had the old traditional, Pepperoni. Delicioso!

    Old Town Pizza: Good pizza in a historic (and haunted?!) spot

    Lunch time at Old Town Pizza
    2 more images

    Since the "Underground Portland" walking tour began at Old Town Pizza, we decided to have lunch there - which is great since we probably wouldn't have discovered this place on our own. Located slightly off the beaten path in the Old Town district, this restaurant first opened in 1974 and soon became one of the city's most popular spots for pizza, and I can understand why: first, the historic atmosphere of the place is quite unique and very charming. Old Town Pizza is located in the lobby of the old Merchant Hotel, dating back to 1880, and many of the old architectural elements have been preserved, including the hotel's original reception desk (where people now place their order). Second, the pizza is really, really good! We ordered a small one, which was plenty for two people, and picked chicken, pesto and onions as our toppings. Sylvain and I both really enjoyed it and washed it down with a pint of Mac & Jack's African Amber Ale, one of the best Pacific Northwest beers I got to taste. We didn't get to meet Nina, the restaurant's much talked about ghost, but it was still a great dining experience!

    Rovente Pizza: Cheap Pizza on Hawthorne

    Rovente Pizza:Great Outdoor Dining (on nice days!)
    4 more images

    On a per-person basis, this is probably one of the least expensive restaurants on SE Hawthorne Blvd. Some of the special deals are only about $8 a pizza. A slice of certain types of pizza and a soft drink can be had for $3, depending on what the special deal of the day is.

    However, if you are in a big group, and it is raining, keep this in mind: Rovente Pizza on Hawthorne has only about 2 seats indoors. Everything else is outside at uncovered picnic tables. People eat outside here anyway even in the rain, but not anywhere near as often as during nice weather.

    And during nice weather the outdoor tables can be quite packed sometimes.

    Favorite Dish: I really have no particular favorite pizza at this place that is better than any other.

    Metro Pizza: Cheap Pizza Near Waterfront Park

    by glabah Written May 16, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The pizza place has two levels: one where you order and pay for your pizza, and upstairs where there are tables. The downstairs area has one small lunch counter area where it is possible to eat as well, but it is better upstairs for most people.

    The restaurant also has a number of tobacco "hookas" (are these not bongs for tobacco?) for rent for $12, if you are 18 or older.

    The pizza is between $3 and $3.75 a slice, which considering the slice size isn't a great deal...
    BUT
    sometimes they run out of pizza, and have to get older slices out of the pizza warmer. In that case, those slices are $1 a slice, and at that price the slices are a fairly good deal.

    Favorite Dish: I don't have a particular favorite here, but the Hawaiian is fairly good.

    A Pizza Scholls: best pizza in town

    by vjoe Written Aug 12, 2005

    This place used to be out in the country side in Scholls. They were so successful, the city kind a kicked them out because there were not enough parking and people were parking along the two lanes Scholls Ferry highway. They had a pizza countdown and quit selling when they run out of dough. A nice selection of beer too. Now they moved to the upper Hawthorn area and got a bigger place and plenty of street parking.

    Doh - They don't have the brick oven anymore and I think their pizza is a little burnt now, but still best in town.

    Favorite Dish: magarita pizza - no meat, but it's so good!!!
    awesome crust, olive oil, basil, tomato, garlic and cheese explode in your mouth.

    Pizza Caboose: Delicious Pizza!

    by rmdw Written Sep 9, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Whenever I visit a city I always like to try out one of the local pizza restaurants rather than go to one of the national chains.

    While watching a friend of mine a Tigard Bowling I ordered a pizza from "Pizza Caboose" next door.

    It was absolutely delicious and I will definitely order from them again!

  • Old Town Pizza: A great place that should not be missed

    by mirthful Written Jan 2, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This has got to be Portlands best Pizza.
    They have this great atmosphere with antique furniture. Even some chairs you might think that will break on you. This is inside an old building in old town (what a coincidence huh?) anyways the people are
    great and the couches are comfortable and
    welcoming.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite has got to be the Vegetarian Antipasta. Made specially. But anything you order there is going to be excellent.

    The name I do not know, but...

    The name I do not know, but its a tiny Pizza shop across the road from Powells book store. This is located on Burnside and is fairly near to downtown Portland. Anyone in Portland should be able to direct you to Powells and since its across the street=) well you should be able to find it.
    The food is excellent and has a price to match it. Thats 2 pluses in my book.

    Favorite Dish: Well, as the above said, Pizza.
