This is perfectly located across the street from the tours. We were starving and here was Bill's. We enjoyed the full breakfast then bought water for the tours.

We ordered some late night slices and really got an experience out of it. The owner who served us is very passionate about his food and was good conversation while we waited for our order. The dough and sauce are both fantastic.

Arrived early for sunset lighthouse cruise, were hungry and dropped in for a 10" pepperoni pie & cheesecake. Simple but tasted great and super convenient from Discovery Sea & Land Tour Long wharf.

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.

After a morning of shopping in Old Port during the first snow, we ducked in here for a pizza and were rewarded with a smile from a very friendly man behind the counter and a delicious hot sausage pizza. We were the only ones in...More
