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!
It's a crust thing.. – Went there with a lunchdeal coupon and was not disappointed. This place certainly gives Home Slice a run for the money. I thought the pizza at Salvation was better, albeit the atmosphere was not up to HS.
The crust was outstanding; crisp, well charred and held up to the last slice. Not the kind of crust that ends up on the pan at the end of the meal. The sauce was fresh and uncooked so it was light and bright red upon service. Prices are reasonable and service was friendly.
For us its Mangia for stuffed Chicago style, Home Slice for NY Style and definitely Salvation for Neopolitan. We'll be back and thanks for finally providing Austin with a good traditional Neapolitan pizza.
Best Pizza I've Had in Austin – I've tried most of the pies throughout the city and these are the tastiest. They get the crust right -- always crisp and flavorful ... not that cardboard stuff you end up with most places that feels like just a vehicle for the toppings. The place can get crowded and even take out can take an hour so plan ahead.
Headed down hill – I've been raving about this place since I found it but the last few visits have been very disappointing. Ordered a large #6 last night and got home with a SOGGY mess with very few toppings for over $20. 3/4 ended up in the trash. I guess it's back to the Brick Oven for me. Sorry to see Salvation Pizza dropped from my list of regular places to dine.
Great Pizzas at great prices – Joined some friends here for half price beer. Four of us ordered the large (which is huge) artichoke and eggplant pizza. It was delicious and more than enough for the four of us. Pretty cool place. Nice vibe for the location. Well worth the visit.
Great pizza, spotty service – The pizza is consistently fantastic. I'm from NY, so I'm quite picky and was consistently disappointed in Austin until I tried Salvation. They have great crusts, great toppings, and great cheese, so I've been quite contented with every pie I've gotten there. The service, on the other hand, is spotty. At times, it's been very quick despite being slammed, and a few Friday/Saturday nights, I've deeply regretted setting foot in the place. It seems to be getting better over time and I haven't had a bad experience in at least six months, so it's still among my favorite places to eat in Austin.
Man Oh Man – I went to salvation for the first time a couple of months ago and have raved about it since. They have live oak hefeweizen which goes great with the white pie, as well as an assortment of wines and brews. I live near UT Campus and believe me I've tried every pizza place from south first to north loop, Salvation is by far the tastiest. If you live in central austin, or go to UT, Salvation Pizza is a must try.
Pizza lover, loves Salvation – I have been searching for this kind of pizza salvation since I was in Italy! Perfect thin crust, light on the sauce but not on flavor, REAL cheese...a shame you even have to wonder but real cheese it is! Quite atmosphere inside and great spacious outdoor seating! If you love pizza you must try Salvation! Oh and they are fast at making the pies!
Best Pizza yet! – Love the Pizza. Tastes just like the ones I used to get in NYC after a long nite out! Really tasty, crisp think crust, just the right amount of pizzazz in the sauce. The Clam Pizza w/ bacon was awesome. I'd eat here anyday!
