Hands down best pizza in town! The atmosphere is friendly and traditional, as well the pizza is great! To get a sense of Columbia, this is the place to go!

Columbia MO has great restaurants .. Shakespeare's Pizza is NOT one of them. The bathrooms are gross. The tables are sticky. The food is tired and tasteless.

This was the first place I tried when we moved to Columbia over a year ago. The pizza is pretty great, but a little on the expensive side. Needless to say we have been back many times, and we always take our out of town guest here!
