The brick oven pizza is excellent! They have an great selection of pies available and the staff is always friendly. Best local pizza in town!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had 2 slices of specialty pizza, two beers and an order of calamari. Pizza was very good (NY style), calamari was good but the sauce was tasteless. Beer choices are pathetic. Only 6 bottled beers are available (if you count the 2 lite beers, which I hate to do). Service was good.

Anytime I get a chance, I have to stop in and get a couple of slices. They have the best pizza. If you are adventurous they also have a lot of interesting slice choices on hand.

Let me begin by saying the food is great here. The delivery is very unorthodox. Patrons enter into a narrow room that serves as the both the place one orders, pays for, and receives his/her order. You then carry your food and drinks into another room full of tables. There is no table service. When finished you clean up after... More

We've been eating Picnic Pizza for years and the place is a local favorite. They have quite the selection of toppings on the individual slices, in addition to Sicilian pies - they pretty much have it all. I haven't had anything else there besides pizza and garlic knots, so can't comment on any of the other food...sometimes we will pick... More

Wood fired and delicious. Plus you get to hear the guys behind the counter yell at each other in Italian. Colorful! I know they do subs and pasta too, but I've only ever had the pizza.

We like their pizza but every time we get it delivered it's longer than they say and the pizza is always cold! Tried to order a pie for delivery at 8pm in a Sunday night and were told pick up only....

Got off route 87 looking for a quick bite, and, entering Kingston, bumped into this place. Appealed by the "wood fire oven pizza" sign, and decided on going in. Found a place with lots of pizza variety that looked good. And the pizza was actually really good! although all pizzas I saw came out of a regular pizza oven and... More
