My new favorite pizza joint in central Austin! Love the thin-crust pies and the traditional toppings. Tip for those who love to dip pizza in ranch: they do not have ranch, and they're sticking to it!
Highly recommended Pizza joint – Very good pizza here. You won't be disappointed. Good beer selection. Great place to hang out.
Best Pizza in Austin! – My husband and I are major pizza lovers and think Salvation Pizza is hands down the best in Austin! The crust is perfectly thin and leaves you feeling satiated instead of full while allowing the sauce and toppings to speak for themselves. Speaking of toppings, Salvation offers a wide variety and also has some of the most unique combinations of toppings out there on their specialty pizzas. And don't miss the salad because the sundried tomato vinaigrette is perfection for the palate.
Salvation for Austin pizza scene – This could be the Salvation of Austin pizza - great and varied pizza, personal feeling, not a chain and not gimmicky. This is a place where what you see is what you get. . . and the pizza is superb. Try to go a bit later in the evening to avoid biggest crunch for space.
Great pizza, poor service! – My friends brought us to dinner and said that Salvation has great pizza. They were not lying. I love the freshness and crunchy crust. 2 thumbs up for the pizza.
2 thumbs down for the service. When I asked for straws as a waiter and a waitress were at our table, they both looked at each other, didn't respond to my request and gave each other a funny look. The waitress finally brought back straws but didn't seem happy about it. If you don't like customer service, don't work there! I wasn't asking for them to bend over backwards. None of them smiled either. If it wasn't for the atmosphere, the place would've been awesome. Too bad the wait staff makes me never want to come back... It's a darn shame because that pizza is pretty gosh darn good.
Last note, if you like to use Sweet n Low in iced tea, you should bring your own. They don't offer it for whatever reason.
Editorial Review – Pizzeria specializes in East Coast Napoletana-style pies made with all fresh ingredients. Also serve salads, wine and beer.
Best pizza in Austin – Salvation Pizza is undoubtedly the best pizza in the city of Austin. It is a thin-crust, neopolitan style pizza that is to die for!. Yes, it is crispy. And that's the way this pizza is supposed to be! This isn't a pizza chain like Mr. Gattis or Dominos where the dough is undercooked and squishy. No, Salvation Pizza is the real thing. It best compares to Harry's Pizza in West Hartford, Connecticut. In fact, the owner of Salvation Pizza is the daughter of the owners of Harry's Pizza.
The service can be a little spotty at times because it's a small pizza joint and there has been a huge uptick in demand for their pizza. Nonethess, it is worth a trip. If you're a Northeasterner like me, you won't be disappointed!
Doesn't quite work – A pizza place, nearby, with thin crust? A plus! Went on a Sunday night, the place was slow. I noticed that most people around me had no food, which is a bad sign. As usual, I was starving, and ordered right away. Unfortunately, the only option for an appetizer is a salad. Period. You can have a salad and choice of 2 dressings.
The atmosphere: they were playing heavy-ish punk music. The nterior is cute-weird., a little cold. The crowd was mellow, a couple families, and the music was definitely misplaced. The waitress, was, completely inattentive. This makes sense in a place that's busy. It wasn't. She sped by, cleaning up from table to table but never stopping to ask how we're doing. She didn't smile at all. Awful. I felt my presence was inconveniencing her.
Then the wait for pizza! 45 minutes for pizza. Seriously. And barely anyone in front of us. It was ridiculous.
However, it was pretty good pizza. I totally dug on the pineapple canadian bacon one, which I usually don't. Extra yummy cheese, something besides mozzerella. But the other pizza was, just ok (jalepeno and sausage).
The problem here is, they don't fit into any pizza category well. It's not really a good dine-in place, since the staff makes it uncomfortable, the music is irritating, and you have to wait forever for main courses (because of no appetizers). It also isn't a good take out place, since it takes so long to make a pizza.
I might, just might, order a pizza sometime, wait 30 mins, then leave the house to get it. But I don't know, it was pretty obnoxious.
Best pizza in Austin. – I think Salvation rocks. I'm from the Northeast and that's some fine, old school pie. It's real Neopolitian, crispy and thin, with a great choice of interesting toppings. The place is small and I've always found the staff to be super friendly, which is why I think the last review irked me. I was also dining there on the 6th and was actually in the same room as the aforementioned party. It was about 12 people who all came seperately and ordered at seperate times. As a former waitperson, it just seems to me that a little common sense on their part would have made their experience way more enjoyable. My pie came out after all of theirs had and I don't think we waited more than 30 minutes. And it was great as usual. Just felt like I needed to defend my new favorite neighborhood restaurant. Viva Salvation.
BEST PIZZA IN AUSTIN – This is by far the best pizza i've ever eaten. If you Love pizza then you MUST try this. Thin crust with chunks of tomatos in the sauce. ahhhh LOVE IT!!!
