We had chicken parmesan. It was a big portion, enough for two. The restaurant is in the middle of a neighborhood, no real parking. However, we were able to park on the road. No plastic utensils :(

Focaccia bread to die for. This has become our new local pizza joint. The pizzas are HUGE and tasty.The staff is as nice as can be. It's the kind of place you take your out of town guests to visit when they're in town. Check out the Sat specials for a great deal and opportunity to sample more pizzas for... More

Great experience! Saturday night with party of 5. Prompt service from Haley, a server that has a personality and was fun to interact with. Place is spotless, bathrooms included, service was fast and food was fantastic. Menu boards offer plenty of different types of pizza's as well as a few other Italian entrees. Negatives? We are just outside of their... More

I would recommend dining in, the pizza is amazing fresh from the oven! The dining room is small but the servers are friendly. I've ordered delivery many times, it's great and the owner even personally delivers sometimes. I love the Brooklyn pizza, the calzone with broccoli and bacon, and the bread sticks. I highly recommend this place.

A very unassuming little place with a sometimes abrasive owner. Parking can be tricky and it really is a tiny little place but the pizza that rolls out of these ovens are AWESOME! There are very few things I miss since moving away from Virginia and the Pizza Box is at the top of my list of things I miss.... More

Yes, we exist, people who aren't crazy about pizza. We eat it for a change or an option when all else has failed. However, Pizza Box changes all that. Fresh, great combinations, relaxed atmosphere, and all-around pleasant experience when you have a pizza from here. Particularly like anything they make with goat cheese. Definitely the best option in Hampton Roads... More

Kept hearing about this place from one of my sisters. While I liked it, I didn't find it all that she said it was. Nice people, nice food.

My family and I, like most everyone, is a big fan of good pizza. We especially love to find genuine, fresh pizza that is as far different from the frozen or even mass produced chin pizzas as possible. In recent months, we have had Pizza Box pizzas both delivered to our home in Olde Towne Portsmouth and at their Port... More

Best pie in this area. Out of the way location-I get mine to go, the place is cramped. Going there tonight
