Feeling tired after traveling many miles we took the hotels suggestion for a nearby pizza restaurant. We ordered their EXLARGE House Specialty Pizza which came with a small cheese pizza. $27 later we were enjoying a delicious hot crisp pizza delivered to our room. The driver was very courtesy. I would order again.

I like a lot of different types of pizza. I have learned to like different crust types, different sauces, and different toppings. I guess I have become somewhat of a crust snob, as that is the thing I notice first about a pizza. Well, these folks have nailed it. Every time I have gotten a pizza here, the crust has... More

Had lunch with my son there. The receptionist/waiter was clearly not happy to be there. Felt like we were bothering him throughout our visit there, from welcoming us (or lack of) to taking orders to bringing food. I had a small pizza that was pretty good. My son had pasta that was literally swimming in oil. Not terrible but still... More

Craig Os is a small chain of italian restaurants in Austin, TX. They're not fancy, and the prices are very reasonable. I ate at this one a lot in 2009 when I was staying in that area for work. So I went there again this weekend, and it was just as I remembered it. Good pizza, good pasta dishes. Very... More

Was hoping for more. Tried the supreme and meat lovers pizzas. Supreme tasted good but hand tossed crust was kinda thin. The meat lovers tasted mainly like hamburger and had same issues with crust. We did have the chipotle wrap. It was good. My daughter enjoyed her Sicilian chicken sandwich. Probably go next door to Sam's for pizza next time.

Basic interior but over the top with friendly, knowledgeable courteous staff. Food is mouth-watering Italian specials, pizzas, desserts, and rather authentic, tasty treats for all!

I have now eaten at two Craig O's Pizza & Pastaria...BOTH were amazing! I am gluten intolerant and chose a pizza place recommended to me by my Optometrist's office in South Austin last Fall 2014. Then, I realized there was another location in another location in Northwest Austin in April 2015. They were both wonderful--food-wise, cost, and customer service. Their... More

Similar to another review, the cashier taking the order was not friendly and never said thank you. I'm sorry I left a tip. The pizza had a good amount of toppings but was soaked through the bottom, making it soggy & limp.

This is one of mine and my wife's favorite places to eat. Discovered it years ago when it was not so popular and watched as the owner built into a great little place...and other places as well. Pizza is always fresh, hot, and consistent. Salads are great with homemade dressings and the large sizes are HUGE!. Get the antipasto salad... More
