This pizza was delicious. We got a plain Jane for the kids and one with Brussel sprouts. Huge hit. The kids loved the pizza museum and the ice cream next door was an added bonus.

If you want classic Philly pizza, then this place is not for you. They do artisanal, unique, and absolutely frickin' amazing pizzas here. Located in the up and coming funky part of town, Fishtown, these guys are becoming an icon. The shop has old school stuff pizza themed stuff everywhere (think Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). You can't go wrong ordering... More

This is a fun place and just to set it out, the pizza is great. Slightly chew crust with a bit of char, and the toppings are interesting. The Leondard is a bit dull, but the Forbes is a great rendition of a classic. The joint is filled with fun and funky pizza memorabilia, down to the VHS tapes running... More

Pizza Brain was a feast for the eyes and mouth. The whole restaurant is plastered in pizza memorabilia, from floor to ceiling. My eyes were constantly engaged and fascinated. The pizza itself smelled great upon walking in, and tasted even better. We got one with brussels sprouts on it, which was revolutionary to me. Definitely worth a lunch adventure!

So even when we showed up at this restaurant as it was closing they still gave us two slices of pie! Google has the correct hours of 9 PM but Trip Advisor shows 10 PM which is incorrect. The pizza was delicious and we mosey next-door for some ice cream and even though we were full! Will definitely be back... More

This is how pizza should look and taste. It's huge. It's homemade (no canned sauce, no frozen pizza shells, etc.). You can buy some pies by the slice, but most are a whole pie. It's not super cheap, but you're paying for quality. They do share space with the best ice cream place in Philly, as well.

They have fresh ingredients that's why this is expensive place with limited menu. I lived their mushroom mixed on a white sauce crust.

Pizza is amazing, and the restaurant and its various pizza memorabilia are very fun. You wouldn't know it from the exterior of the building. Not a lot of seating. They do take out though!

Creative and delicious pizza, plus Pizza Brain is a small but fun little shop to gaze about pizza paraphernalia while waiting for your pie to finish cooking. It's brilliant! We had the Whur Herpert, which has sesame seed crust, ground sirloin, red onion and that fancy sauce (yep, just like that famous sandwich!) But I'd go here any day over... More
