“As good as ever!”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

This was our first visit since the re-opening and we found the pizza as good as ever. We ordered "The Gourmet " and the buffalo chicken pizza. The gourmet was as good as ever with portobello mushrooms,red peppers and Gorgonzola cheese. I could actually taste the individual toppings and especially the Gorgonzola cheese! A great pie!
My children had the buffalo chicken pizza and I was lucky to grab a slice! The pizza was decadently covered with chicken and a blue cheese sauce and drizzled with hot sauce. A nice change from a skimpily covered pie with a separate side container of blue cheese dressing. This pie is not for those into lite fare!
My only minor complaint is the price of the pies is a little high, but they more than make up for it with toppings you can sink your teeth into

“Lost Their Mojo”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Maybe it's because they were closed for so long because of their fire, but this is not the place I've enjoyed so often in the past. First of all, there is no table service and never has been. You order at the register, and they might bring it to your table but that's all.
The pizza is now dry and lifeless, almost as if they never replaced the sauce after re-opening. This makes the crust taste stale even though it isn't.
The ingredients are more scarce than before making me think insurance did not cover all the cost of their re-building.
I trust they will get back up to speed because they were great and the whole wheat crust was unique. Plus, the place does look cleaner and roomier now.

“Great pizza with whole wheat crust”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

West Main Pizza has traditional pizzas as well as many options for vegetarians. The Billy Goat is great - a white pizza with garlic, herbs, goat cheese, spinach & sun dried tomatoes. Our favorite is the Gobbler - a seasonal pizza with turkey, gravy, stuffing & cranberry sauce usually available from around Halloween through New Year's. The greek salad is also delicious.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

We've never actually eaten at this restaurant, we usually carry-out, so I can't speak for the sit-down service. However, we think this is, by far, the best pizza on Aquidneck Island! They were closed for a while due to a fire, but are now back up and running and the pizza is just as good as before!! If you haven't tried it, and want really yummy pizza, try any of the delicious and tasty varieties they offer!!!! By the way, they also offer a call ahead service so that your pizza/calzone is ready when you want to eat in the restaurant and a take-n-bake option as well.
