Friendly hostesses greeted us on a pretty afternoon after we attended a craft fair at the nearby Main Street Station. Great service and best pizza we’ve had in RVA! Highly recommend the Karen’s special pizza with spinach, sausage and onions! Delicious! Crust is thicker but...More

The flavors were awesome. Options and ability to modify made customization simple. Pizza crust lite and airy but too much bread for me. Highly recommend you try it out.

I had avoided this place for unknown reasons but was with a friend who suggested we go and I have him to thank for this experience. The only reason I did not rate this place excellent is that it is noisy - lots of hard...More

Some reviewer said this was deep dish (as in Chicago deep dish). It is absolutely NOT deep dish, but it is delicious. We got the medium thick crust pepperoni, caramelized onions and roasted red peppers. YUM. The sourdough crust is tasty and the sauce is...More

It has been 23 years since I last had Bottoms Up Pizza. Still as good as I remember it. Was on a 100 mile bike trip from Jamestown to RVA and back. My buddies and I had a great meal here. Caesar salad was good.

It’s been years since my wife and I have eaten here. Even before Trip Advisor. It was quite warm out, so we ate inside. No train watching today. We shared salad and thin crust pizza. Everything came out well. Decent beer menu available.

Best pizza I have ever had. This place is worth visiting! It is in the super cute neighborhood of Shockoe Bottom. I will definitely return next time we are in Richmond!

We walked to the Bottoms Up from the Capital Building for some great pizza. We shared the “Loaded” (without olives) and Miriam had the “Chesapeake” (crab, onions and cheese). Absolutely worth the effort to find! The Loaded paired well with the Devil’s Backbone Vienna Amber.

We are not in a hotel. Our restaurant is two stories but we do not have an elevator. We do have a ramped entrance to our first floor.
