Having attended La Salle in the mid 50's, it was great to once again visit this iconic site. As a group of kids we always put away a couple of the multi slice rectangle pies, however my capacity seldom exceeds 2 slices today. Other than an additional room little has changed, especially the quality of the pizza and the great sauce. We had a six slice pizza, and Italian salad, and two beverages served with consistent excellence for less than $30. It's great to return to a old friend

This location was a staple for me growing up in Troy, NY. We stopped here after high school dances and athletic events. Time has past but this restaurant pizza is as good as ever. I've been back several times with family and friends. The food and service is excellent.

The food is certainly good, truly as good as I recall from a few decades ago. The decor looks like it was last updated about the time Gerald Ford pardoned Nixon. The service was indifferent for certain . If it weren't for the food quality I'd stay away for a few more decades

Whatever claim to fame this place may have had in the past , it is certainly over it. The space is very dated with slight musty smell and sticky feel. The red sauce is too acidic for
my taste. Pizza is doughy ,toppings were fair. Service was slow and indifferent . A lot of
the patrons seemed to be older population that eats there frequently , they like it.

Red Front is a Troy institution! They've been around for at least 40 years and make the best pizza. The chicken parm and delmonico steaks are also excellent. Good prices and friendly staff - decent beer selection.
