Alley Cat is on all the lists as best pizza in NH. It's a quick walk from Elm Street and worth a detour. The crust is thin and tasty. The sauce is mild and the cheese less plentiful than I'd like. Service is quick and a slice is just a couple of bucks.

This is by far the best Pizza in town. Friendly and fast service. Menu is diverse and cooked to order.

I love Alley Cat. True Italian-style pizza. They have a 21-inch supersize pizza that will feed a small army. I've never had a bad pizza from here - best in the whole city.

Love their Mediterranean Pizza: tomatoes, feta and tomatoes! Yumm! Also, if you are serving a bunch of men, All Meat Pizza is definitely worth the price.

Awesomely delicious! The staff were nice! It's not in the best neighborhood, but the pizza is worth it! Affordable too! We got the 20' pizza cut in 16 slices!

Alley Cat does pizza right. Just the perfect balance of cheese and sauce. Every variety we've tried has been delicious. The pizzas are always consistently prepared. The extra large size is the biggest pizza around and it is very reasonably priced. Whenever we're in the area, we order a pizza to go and drive 45 minutes to get home before... More

Alley Cat Pizzeria came highly recommended for a history of terrific pizza,and customer service, when I moved to Manchester over 10 years ago. Having patronized Alley Cat regularly for a decade, I am never let down. We have been spoiled such that we can't eat pizza from any where else in the state. Great sauce, great crust, great toppings; the... More

Good NY pizza but not as good as it use to be. Very busy place but we'll organized. Delivery available if you live in the area. 20" pizza is awesome. Hopefully it it will regain some of it's "groove"

They have very good pizza here. I like that they name their pizza types with different cat names, e.g., 'fat cat', 'aristocat'. Clever. I usually order plain cheese, but I tried their feta and spinach (Aristocat) and it was great. This place has been around for decades --old school.

Thank NHjo
