I had just moved to Rochester in the middle of winter and was miserable! A friend surprised my husband and me with a takeout from Pizza Stop. It was the one with red and white swirls around on it with sausage bits and basil leaves scattered around. I hesitated because I despite tomato sauces that many pizzerias would smoother the... More

This is it! Real NYC (Brooklyn) - Style pizza, right here in Rochester. Don't look any further. And for you Seinfeld fans - expect a Pizza Nazi experience (ala Soup Nazi).

This was my first stop into Pizza Stop, and I found out what most of Rochester already knew; that this place has really good pizza. The inside of the restaurant is nothing all that special as far as atmosphere goes; just simple tables and a simple dining room. But the pizza that they put on those tables has people coming...

Line is always long for lunch, but for good reason. Food is good and the service is even better. When you go try the garlic knots if there are any left, they are AMAZING!!!!!

The pizza here was very good but not amazing. We loved the crust and the toppings but the sauce was so-so. It was quick, hot, and delicious, but I would definitely say there are better places out there. The price was very competitive for the size of pizza we got. The worst part is the parking situation!

Been here numerous times and it's always great. Pizza is always spot on and the garlic knots are even better. Lunch can get pretty busy, so get there early (or late) if you can. It's a good thing I don't work too close because I'd eat lunch here every day. Great for the taste buds, but it'd be a nightmare... More

I work down the block from the Greece location...having grown up in NYC, this is, by far, the best pizza I've had in 23 years of living in the Rochester area! Thin crust, fresh toppings, the garlic knots are great, and the stuffed meatball parm pizza is something that has to be expierenced personally for you, the reader, to truly... More

AMAZING!!! That's the way to describe the food. I have heard of this place but honestly, never really in downtown very often. I live in Greece and happened upon a new location of theirs so I finally ended up trying it out. Garlic Knots are truly as stated, a MUST every time. I ended up trying a Stuffed Meatball Parm,...

I have commented about the pizzas before which are still fantastic but I now want to comment about something new that the Pizza Stop is doing and that is the garlic knots. They are great, soft chewy dough with a nice garlic flavor with a sprinkle of Romano cheese, get some of their sauce to dip them in and you'll... More
