I hate to leave poor ratings because the pizza is very good. However, the service at the Greece location is terrible. We order from them every other week and normally it goes very smoothly but today I called to order and the young man answering the phone was very rude so I asked to speak with a manager and when...

If you're looking for a traditional "Street pizza" style meal, then you cannot beat this spot in downtown Rochester. There are many varieties to choose from, by the slice. It's not fancy. It's just great.

Great NY style pizza sold mostly by the slice. All sorts of different topping pizzas already made, I go here every excuse I get.

We're fortunate in Rochester to have a lot of good pizza available. Pizza Stop is beyond good....it's memorable! Add it to your must try list! Their stuffed crust pizza is incredible.

I would like to thank you for your review but I do have one correction, it is not stuffed crust it's stuffed pizza and if you like it we offer a small frozen stuffed pizza that you bake at home. It comes out perfect, like it's right out of our ovens. More

This place doesn't open till 2pm on Saturdays, so I was only able to try a late afternoon slice while in Rochester. The choices available weren't huge, but the Buffalo chicken slice look appetizing. Guy behind the counter was a little curt, but maybe that's from dealing with the locals. Anyway, pizza tasted great, was filling and reasonably priced. Would... More

Over 30 years in business, family owned and the best pizza in Rochester. NY style or stuffed, and garlic knots. Not fancy, just plain good food, served with pride

I haven't had every slice in Rochester, but of the slices I've had, these slices are undoubtedly the best. They're not "wood fired," fancy or gourmet. They are NY-style slices of pizza. There is a Sicilian variety, but I always choose the thin crispy crust option, which always arrives hot from their awesome pizza ovens.

Ordered the Chicken Spinoccoli, best pizza we've found in Rochester. Crust is delicious & stands up to all the toppings.

Pizza Stop came highly recommended so I had high hopes. The pizza was good, but not great. The crust was excellent, but I found the sauce a little bland and the pie was so juicy that it made the crust soggy. Not greasy... just wet. I'm not sure if it was from the mushrooms or the sauce, but it was... More
