My family really enjoyed these pizzas. Great sauce. I had the anti pasta salad, with the Creamy Italian dressing. It was great, with pepperoni, olives and mozz cheese. Fun atmosphere!

Best pizza in the country, hands down! Nothing more needs to be said. But since my review requires 100 characters...Eat here! I prefer the thin crust but the thick is tasty as well. The cheese is thick and toppings fresh. Get a cold beer to wash it down. Also deliver, and have a large seating area in the back that... More

The pizza at this sports themed restaurant is made from a family recipe handed down from one generation to the next. How the sauce is made, is a closely guarded secret, and anyone who would dare divulge it will not be seen for a very long while, if ever! They don't skimp on the wonderful cheese and their sausage is... More

We were in for a nice pizza this past week, the pizza was good plus we were able to see some of the many college basketball games that are being played at this time. The service was quick and friendly.

I have eaten pizza a lot of places and Pizza Cellar is without a doubt my favorite. This is a family favorite and we are lucky to have it so close by.

The best pizza in and on the universe! Princeton is so luck to call Pizza Cellar our own. The Vitales are great community members and always welcome you. John is the best pizza chef ever. Love you guys!

We were on highway and have used trip advisor and other apps to find local gems when hungry. This was not one of them. Pizza burnt and greasy. Poor attempt at brick oven with dough and sauce that lacked any flavor. Princeton seems like a nice town but needs better pizza options!

Just ok. The food is good, just a typical pizza joint. Average atmosphere, takes a while to get your food, don't be in a hurry.

Pure garbage. 1/4 of the pizza was brown on top and 3/4 white and puddles of grease sitting on top. Dough was soft and tasted uncooked. Service was slow yet the pizza was cooked too fast. It is no wonder there is still a Monical's Pizza a block away form here. And ironically this is the 2nd time within almost... More
