Shakespeare’s pizza has been around for decades in Columbia. The original was right by campus and even after remodeling, they kept the location, but now there are two more locations. Excellent pizza and fun atmosphere.

Thanks for being a long-time fan. We love that you love the new-old Shakes. We tried to keep it as close to the old as possible. We even used the same bricks, ceiling tiles, and booths. Hope to see you back again soon!!

A Columbia icon keeps on delivering year after year. The Masterpiece is appropriately named! And the pepperoni with pepper jack cheese tanks a close second!

The masterpiece and anything with pepper jack cheese are some of our favorites too! We love being considered an "icon" in so many people's eyes. Come back and see us again soon. Thanks!!

We loved our fresh ingredients on our pizza. They did not disappoint on the extra cheese requested! We also ordered a small Masterpiece pizza that was piled high with toppings. The salads....oh the salads, they hit the spot after a long day of touring Mizzou....More

When we travel to Columbia, we ALWAYS have to get a pizza from Shakespeare's. They are great. We usually get the meat lover's with extra cheese and extra sauce. They have good beers there as well. Only reason I give them 4 stars instead of...More

Thanks so much for coming in!! Those concrete floors and tile ceiling make the echo in the restaurants pretty loud, but it's better than alternate of carpet floor. We love that you love the atmosphere, the pizza, and the dough. Hope to see you again...More

I've been here multiple times and have had a consistently solid pizza experience. I'd say its overrated just because Mizzou students/grads rave about this place being their favorite restaurant in town but I would argue that its not even the best pizza in town

For my taste, it's the best place to get a pizza in central Missouri. Fantastic, and not expensive at all. Can get quite busy at times though. 2 or 3 locations. Main one downtown, just off the mizzou campus.

Yes they do have a gluten free option. They only have a 12" crust available and it's not a crust they produce within their kitchen.

Shakespeare's Pizza... where the pizzas are round, the pepperonis are all right-side-up, and all the pint glasses clink at a perfect C-sharp.
