Brick Oven, Conan’s Pizza, and Mangia’s are the best pizza joints in town. The exact order depends on who you ask, but these are the places that make pizza "fine dining" and not something you have delivered. 🙂 Of the three, Brick Oven is the best place to take a date…
Anonymous
Never been to any of the Brick Ovens, though all the people I know who’ve worked there are wonderful specimens of humanity. 🙂
Anonymous
The best pizza I have had in Austin was at the Brick Oven, but it was very pricey.
Anonymous
Ack, the Brick Over?!? I think you just rescinded your right to judge pizza with the above. The Brick Oven has terrible pizza.
Anonymous
When did The Brick Oven become a terrible pizza place? I have not been to either store in years, but I remember a very nice pizza.

Conan’s is good buffet pizza (especially since Rizano’s on 24th closed), though I wouldn’t order it too often.
Anonymous
…Conan’s is the best place to take a group of friends.
Anonymous
I still consider Conan’s Pizza pretty darn good, too (and I’d even *worked* there many many years ago, so, if I can still stomach it, it’s got *something* going for it).
Anonymous
I once had sex in one of the booths, so I’ll always have a fond romantic attachment for Conan’s.

There is also a pizza place in the Arbor, but I do not remember its name. I go there once a week or so. The store sit across from ThunderCloud.

It’s called "Giovanni of Italy" and it’s excellent.

Mangia is as close as I’ve had to Chicago-style pizza in Austin. To really enjoy it, try getting some delivered (who wants to go way up in that foreign zip code anyhow?), heating each slice in a frying pan with some olive oil until the bottom is nice and crispy then enjoying it with a glass of cool Chianti.
Same goes for the thick-crust Artichoke Alfredo from Milto’s Pizza.
Anonymous
Mangia is the best stuffed pizza I’ve ever had. Get the pesto sauce. And hit the ATM before you go; it’s a little pricier, but well worth it. (Better yet — take the ‘rents.)
Anonymous
For deep dish (or even thin crust) pizza, I have found Mangia to be the best in town.
Anonymous
They have some excellent deep disk Chicago style pizza. Their thin crust is second to none I’ve ever tried. Give it a try. Look for the delivery truck with the big Godzilla on it.
Brian Combs (12/21/94)
Mangia is my personal favorite. The only thing is, unless you are ordering one of their daily specials, preparation can take a while.
The "Jeff’s Special" is to die for.
Shelley Hatfield (7/26/95)
Mangia’s is superb. The whole office makes a pilgrimage to Mangia’s once a week, without fail. The service is marvelous. Susie is one of the best waitresses around.

Very thin crust, very good toppings. Nick’s a character, too. Only open on weekends (Fri, Sat, Sun) I believe.
Anonymous
I have to disagree with this one. I got a large pizza from Nick’s and it was horrible. Neither my wife, my best friend nor I wanted more than one piece. It’s too bad, because this place is close to my home. I thought the place may have redeemed itself when I spotted a foosball table, but it was in horrible condition, sigh…I’m sorry I can’t give more details about why we didn’t like the pizza, but I seem to have blocked out the memory.
Anonymous
I concur. The crust was like a saltine without the salt, and the flavor was minimal.

Pizza Garden

on West 290

Comments:

Trebor Wolfbane (11/22/94)
wow, it seems like nobody’s been down to the Pizza Garden on west 290, in the old Sutter Home (where Gardenville used to be). This place has the best thin, crispy crust pizza I’ve had in Austin. If you like New York style pizza, you’ll like this. The whole wheat crust is especially crispy (sometimes you can hold it at the edge and the entire piece will stand straight out!). Plus they have a whole range of exotic toppings, and they’re reasonably priced (unlike Mangia, which is great, but too expensive). Definitely my favorite pizza in Austin.

Believe it or not, the new place next door to UpperCrust bakery on 45th and Burnet, "Rosedales", makes this pizza that is out of this world they don’t call it pizza (can’t remeber what they do call it) but it is. They sell it by the slice, try it!

Don’t forget Shields Pizza on Bee Caves Road in West Lake Hills. This sports bar/pizza restaurant is a great place to go to watch sports games while eating, or just to hang out with a bunch of friends. At first the piza looks deceptively small. It is served Sicilian stlye. This means that the actual area of the pizza is smaller than that of Double Dave’s, for example. Oh, but when you bite in to it! It is actually a very thick, deep pizza, just loaded with cheese and toppings. After having eaten four pieces of this, I who am 6’2" and weighs 220 was completely stuffed! I could eat there every day! To top it off, if you are there with a date, it is not far from the lookout overlooking the bridge on Route 360 above the lake, and Mt. Bonnell is also near!
