This is a Columbia classic. They have good pizza, good salads, a nice bar. Check them out if you are in town, even for one night.

My wife likes to say the best pizza anywhere is a little shop in Rome we hit years ago. Nonsense. This is it. Order the Louie salad and split a medium pizza. Heaven on earth.

A fun place where you order at the counter, either by the slice or a whole pizza. Very fast, good salads as well. Plan to see a line if at peak dining times, but it moves very quick!

Yes they do have a gluten free option. They only have a 12" crust available and it's not a crust they produce within their kitchen.

Shakespeare's Pizza... where the pizzas are round, the pepperonis are all right-side-up, and all the pint glasses clink at a perfect C-sharp.
