I like all kinds (Well not the chain stuff.) of pizza. Gourmet pizza is nice once in a while, but I like the standard kind. To me, the keys are the crust and the sauce. As long as the toppings are fresh, I can't tell much difference. And non-fresh mozzarella is pretty standard everywhere. I had the thin crust and... More

Downtown Brick Oven Pizza and Pub is part of the Portsmouth Gas Light Co. restaurant - the entrance is actually around the corner from the Market Street entrance to the Gas Light Co. restaurant and downstairs in the basement. The restaurant is exactly what the name suggests - pizza and pub! Looking for a break from seafood we went in... More

As the title states this is not a typical Greek pizza place which dominates the New England area. I do want to make it clear that I am not critizing Greek style pizza as we have several excellent places out here in central Mass. This place in my opinion provides a more traditional brick oven Italian style pizza. The crust... More

The pizza selection was good with some creative topping combos. The service was good, our waitress was friendly and engaging without being overbearing. My only complaint was when we entered the resturant, the carpeting stuck terribly. It kind of grossed me out before we even sat down to eat. Everything else looked clean, but they may want to consider an... More

I've been to the Street level, casual with good food, and the lower pizza pub, even more casual with great pizza and try the chicken tortellini salad; best in town. Servers are all nice and friendly. In the summer, a nice deck for drinks and entertainment. Its the best place for varied options in food and atmosphere in town !

Everything took a long time. Even the drinks took a long time and we must have waited for the main course about an hour. Food was OK. Certainly nothing great. Beer was very good though, which must be the reason people go there. The place had a pretty nice atmosphere so if you are not too picky eater, this is... More

My in-laws, wife and nearly four year old went here for pizza. We all loved our pizza. The crust was to die for and there was an interesting mix of pizza topping options. The desserts were very, very good. My son really enjoyed watching them make the pizzas in the wood-fired ovens. The waitress very nice and attentive.
