They have all kinds of amazing pizza. Many with unusual toppings. The Chef's Choice is always great vegan pizza with different toppings each time.

Went to dinner with family from out of town and we were very happy with the service, food selections, price. Appetitizers were excellent and the special pizzas even more so. Great place to start a relaxing dinner in Eugene.

Been here quite a few times. Great place to go out with friends or family. Lots of pizza toppings that you wouldn't normally get at a ordinary pizza joint but thats what makes it so good. Definetly vegan friendly. Good crafted cocktails. Really great service.Would go back.

Thought this place was average. I thought the food was average, the service was good, and the setting was very good. This place is in a great neighborhood and is surrounded by breweries. Pizza and beer?

I'm a devoted carnivore, so I put off trying this place which only serves vegetarian and vegan pizzas. But we've tried it recently both for take-out and as a sit-down restaurant, and I must say that their offerings are outstanding. We particularly liked the #3 pizza with caramelized onions and goat cheese which was luscious! They even do such things... More

PRI gets my vote for best vegan pizza on Earth. Their vegan chef's choice explodes with all manner of yummy veggies like marinated eggplant, curried cauliflower, and sultry sweet potatoes. The "cheese" sauce is sensational, the crust is divinely crunchy.

This place didn't work for us, but I can see how it would be popular with other folks. The emphasis is on fresh, vegan, but with ingredients that are heavy and plodding. The crust is heavy and doughy, the toppings are over-the-top abundant. If we understood the nature of the beast better, we might have ordered something more to our... More

Who would think that vegan pizza could be so satisfying? My husband and I ordered the Special No. 8, made of carmelized onions, portobello mushrooms, tomato sauce, and a vegan white sauce, all on a wonderfully baked crust. Oh, and the whole thing was topped by a thick layer of fresh arugula. Mmmmm! Many beers, wines, and specialty cocktails were... More

Interesting boho type pizza place with unique pizzas, including gluten free. Not only had others said "it would change our lives" but the waiter gushed about how wonderful their pizzas are and how much we would love them. Huge warning sign for me. Am more of a "under commit, over deliver" person and am usually disappointed when something is over... More

My favorite the Granny Smith Apple and Gouda Pizza. I like the atmosphere, in a nice neighborhood, comfortable, good place to meet with a group of friends, good drink selection, and friendly. Reasonably priced and never had something there I can say I did not like. Fresh, hot, yummy.
