The pizza is the best. The owner is a smart and fair guy..not racist..an American through and through. I've been going in there since the 60's. great place! If you can't handle it go someplace with bad pizza and PC people.

My friends and I decided to try this restaurant for lunch on a Sunday while shopping in St. Paul. We were quickly seated so that we could wait . . . for 10 minutes before a waitress finally gave us menus. She took our order and we waited.

A celebration lunch was the order of the day and how better to celebrate than with Savoy's Pizzas? The five pizzas ($70.00+) were picked up at the 7th Street location and ready to serve. To everyone's dismay they changed the crust!!!

I think this Savoy's is very slow and expensive. Never get the onion rings for delivery by the time they get to you they are nothing but mush. The pizza was burnt and it had the most strangest taste to it you couldnt even eat it. The mozarella sticks were cold.

I moved to Florida 4 years ago and still can't find a pizza place I would go back to a second time. I have pizza 1/2 baked and frozen (20) at a time and have friends ship them to me, or bring them when they come down. I'm very popular with my in-laws when I get the pizza's from home, as they can't find any as good as Savoy's either.

Pros: Toppings are generous and price is good

I used to love their pizza but when we went there two weeks ago we ate the topping and not the crust because it tasted like cardboard.
I'm hoping they go back to making their own pizza crust because the premade crust just doesn't cut it.

I have always loved savoy's. it's by far my favorite pizza. My fiance had never been so we went out to eat there, we were initially told it would be a 45 min. wait for the pizza, which was fine because it was mother's day and busy. Our waitress took our drink and appetizers orders, it took 15 min. for our drinks to reach our table, a half an hour for our appetizers and an hour and a half for our pizza. our waitress wasn't checking on us, we could see her just inside the kitchen stuffing her face while we waited for our food(I was also pregnant at the time), i had to stop her for a drink refill. I have worked in many restaurants, and know how tipping goes, We didn't tip her too well, than we realized she was okay with that, because she took the HIGHEST amount of recommended gratuity out of our change. I love savoy's too much to not eat there, but i am never dining in again.

I recently dined in at the downtown St. Paul Savoy location to celebrate a friend's birthday. Being short on time, we looked online and called in our order. The food came quickly, but my hamburger literally had a pool of grease sitting on it when it came to me. The food was good, but our waitress never came back to the table to check on us until she gave us our check. When the check came, the prices in the store did not reflect the online prices, and when we questioned it (I pulled up the menu on my blackberry) they refused to even discuss the manner. The manager first claimed that they did not even have a website, which they clearly do and I was holding it in my hand on my blackberry so all she needed to do was look. She wouldn't even look, basically told me I was cheap for even having the nerve to tell her that the prices she was trying to charge me were not the prices stated in the online menu, and she ended up throwning a doller of her tip money at me and walking away, then very loudly complaining to everyone at the bar about our table. In addition to this horrible experience, this restaurant fired all of their union workers, and refuses to hire more because they do not want to pay people a fair wage. I'm certainly never going back. There are several other places in town where you can get good pizza!

I have had pizza in San Francisco, all up and down the peninsula in the Bay area, Chicago, New York. Still can not find a pizza that can compares to the Savoy. They say it is the water that makes the crust, that makes a good pizza. The mighty ole miss is doing a fine job.

Most are gone. Mamas on Rice St is good, but different. I have read about the service - the place is busy. As for the people that are complaing about the pizza, I guess they grew up on Pizza Hut and Dominos!

Pros: Back in the day...there was a lot more places like this.

This place is doesn't have the best service or ambiance; however, it does have the best thin-crust pizza in town. I've had pizza in many cities known for their pizza. It's lame and doesn't have anything on Savoy. I find the atmosphere amusing and then the pizza tops it off.

I was a little let down by the pizza after reading all the great reviews. It was pretty good for pizza I've had in the twin cities, but I think I like ronnally's in woodbury better. The sauce was different, but not my style I guess. If I lived closer to one would probably go again, but wouldn't drive out of the way to get this again.

The problem with pizza ratings is that everyone thinks their home town has the best pizza. It's what you're used to and what YOU like best. Face it - pizza comes in different shapes, sizes, flavors, crusts, sauces, and everything you can imagine. Think of beer - ales, lagers, stouts, etc. They're all beer, they all taste great (usually), but completely different styles and they all have their place.

With that said, STOP COMPARING TO NYC, CHICAGO, CALIF, ITALY or WHEREVER!!! This is Red's Savoy Pizza, and it is phenominal! Not the floppy doughy crust of Lombardi's in NYC, not the deep bready, buttery crust of Lou Malnatti's or Giordano's in Chicago, but the thin flakey crust you get in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Different pizza guys!!

Now that we have established it is a different STYLE of pie, let's compare it to it's peers and contemporaries. In this style of pizza, nothing comes close! Old World (formerly Pizza Factory) in Inver Grove Heights is about as close as they get, but it still pales in comparison to Savoy. The crust is a little thicker than it should be, but considering the weight of this "thin" pizza, it has to be sturdy. Mozzarella and provelone a-plenty make every Minnesotan and Wisconsinite proud, the sausage is huge, the pepperoni is thick and spicy, and the sauce is bold and infuses the veggies. Don't waste precious stomach space on bread - meat and cheese for me please!

Hey New Yorkers - you have the best New York Style pizza! Nothing beats Chicago if you want Chicago Style pizza. But if you like toppings, cheese, and a little kick without a lot of bread, Savoy will leave you singing it's praises! Get off your high-horse, grab a pitcher of beer, and watch your taste-buds rejoyce!

Let's face it the Twin Cities isn't exactly a hot spot for pizza. Ok you got a lot of new age pizza, but pizza shouldn't have shrimp, steak or cilantro on it! We most often pick up pizza from Red's. It's not like pizza from New York or Chicago, but it's the best in this area. People often tell me Cosetta's is the best, but I respectfully disagree. Cosetta's crust is better, but they don't use enough sauce and it's not as tasty.

I couldn't believe anyone gave anything less than five stars to this place. Although I haven't eaten IN the place, I have ordered many times there. The pizzas are always fantastic. I agree that the little squares could go, but guess what? If you ask them to cut in pie shape, lo an behold, they'll do it, no questions asked. Hmmm, ask and ye shall receive.....teehee.

This is by far the BEST pizza in the twin cities.

Pros: Don't ask for extra cheese, There's tons of cheese already on their pizzas.

Cons: none in my books.

While locals may protest, the standard for great pizza is New York and Chicago. I tried Red's because so many locals swear by it. I was disappointed. A pizza is only as good as its ingredients and the care with which the sauce and dough are made. New York pizza is slightly tangy and the dough sweet. Whatever cheese is put on top - sometimes imported cheeses from Italy or France - really comes alive because the sauce acts as a compliment, not the driving factor. The dough ensures that later, after the meal has made its way through your system, you won't feel like your passing a brick. Red's bitter, spicy sauce dominates the taste of its pizza - and not in a good way. The cheese - who knows where they get it from - and the meat create grease. The dough isn't particularly sweet or light. When you bite into it, all get is an overwhelming spicey sausage taste. Why not just put an Italian sausage on a bun and leave it at that? This isn't pizza. I don't know what it is. And, it certainly doesn't come close to Chicago stuffed pizza like you get a Giordano's or Gino's East. St. Louis' Imo's trounces Red's too. But, there are a large number of positive reviews here. I would say that if you're familiar with pizza from New York, Chicago, or St. Louis, you're not going to get anything like that at Red's. And even if we're not comparing Red's to the pizza Holy Land of NYC, it's still mediocre at best. The only pizza in the Twin Cities that comes close to a good pizza is what you can get at Cosetta's - and that's assuming they actually take the time to cook the pizza properly.

Went to Savoy last weekend after not having been there in several years. They still haven't cleaned the bathrooms- OMG! It's worse than a porta pottie! We get our table, sit for 10 minutes and a hurried waitress greets us and takes a drink order. Another 10 minutes goes by and she brings drinks. Forgot the kids, drinks, back in 10 minutes....
Took our order. After 30 minutes, 1 pizza comes, 2 meatball dips come. She forgot the other pizza and pasta sampler as well as the appetizers. She goes over and enters them in on the machine. 10 minutes she says. My son and wife ate their meatball dips: I don't know how- the "lil loaf" garlic bread was so salty it was inedible. I mean deer were lining up to lick this bread. Everyone's done eating. The other pizza, pasta sampler and the kids appetizers come. Daughter loved the Mozz sticks, son loved the french fries. The pasta sampler was so overcooked it was mush. Pizzas were just OK.
I was also bummed they took the broasted chicken, fish and burgers off the menu. It's now just pizza and pasta.
The one thing that I love here is their salad dressings. They are homemade and excellent.
I am a chef and cut restaurants more slack because I'm in the business. I would never spend another nickel in Savoy. Their problems could be solved somewhat by adding two more waitresses per shift. They are just too busy to handle that many tables. They could also rearrange their seating. It's downright cramped. Their bathrooms need to be destroyed and redone. If they could figure out a way to keep customers from waiting for tables out of the aisles, that would be great. Every spare place has people waiting for either a pizza or a table. Nothing like having 4 asses in you face while your eating. Their customers must not ask for much, because the place is packed always. Go figure?

Best Pizza Pie in town - Take it from me, I am 6'3" and 315 pounds so I am no slouch when it comes to getting my grub on. The crust and sausage are second to none.
The toppings are piled on thick, very thick. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.
I have read a couple of negative review about service and I guess I wouldn't say that is there number one thing, but it is not bad and you are not going there for service you are going for pizza - good pizza.
Very busy on the weekends so expect to wait, but it is well worth it.
After all Norm Colemans old man loves this place.

This place is well known for one thing...
Their cheesy, hot, (insert adjective here) pizza!
When I think pizza, I think Red's. This place is a very bar and grillish looking, but the pizza is to die for.

For the full effect you have to order the "special" and sit around with a few of your best friends enjoying a cocktail. If the waitstaff gives you a hard time, then you know you have done everything right!

Obviously the waitresses don't live off their tips at Red's Savoy Pizza. Our waitress was very rude and lazy and certainly not kid-friendly. After waiting over an hour for our 2 pizzas, they were served 10 minutes apart. By the time the second pizza came, half the family was done eating. It would have been nice to eat together. I guess the pizza was 'average to good' but the horrible service outweighed any positives. We definatly won't eat there again.

I read how good this stuff was and had to try it. The pizza at the Red Savoy didn't disappoint. You get a Pizza loaded with toppings and good stuff- good meat- I had the sausage, good cheese, and sauce with a kick lots of oregano, and a terrific flaky, crust. The service which has bashed here over and over seemed to me to be quite good. I did order it carry-out though. This pizza would rival Mama's on Rice and Front. But this has to be on the best Pizzerias in the United States.

I read how good this stuff was and had to try it. The pizza at the Red Savoy didn't disappoint.

Pros: Great Value, Great Pizza, Loads of Toppings !!!

Cons: Sauce might have more kick than some like.

I've never actually dined in, but their pizza is amazing! Their thin crust pizzas are just PERFECT. It's loaded with cheese and those italian sausages... OMG! So delicious! You can never have enough of that!

When I moved here from Chicago, I thought I'd never have a good pizza again. I was almost
right - there aren't very many decent choices here - but I'm glad I found Savoy's. Good stuff!
For thin crust pizza, I think they're very good. Now if only I could find a respectable deep-dish.
Never had any thing but good, if hurried, service. They do get busy.

ok, like our family has always loved savoy downtown, the ovens are so old and crusty and flavorful that you have never had a taste like this. they put the most toppings on and most cheese that you would not believe it, and it hasn't changed in 25 years. you gotta try it!

Pros: best pizza i've ever had

Cons: parking

I have been a customer for nearing 25 years and I don't know that I've ever had a bad pizza at Red's. I recently was in for a long over due Sunday afternoon stop. Still not sure what to think with the no smoking, I could actually see across the place. I have read a number of reviews that had complaints about service and suspect these are from people that just might be a little to trendy in my opinion for Red's. If you expect service of a 5 star at a good old fashioned pizza place stay home, if you want fantastic pizza and don't expect to be pampered you cant beat it. Maybe a smoke machine should be installed, it just does'nt seem right being able to see in there. Keep up the good blue collar work hope to enjoy another 25 years.

Pros: killer pizza

Cons: if you have snobby expectations

Red's is probably the best pizza in the Twin Cities. I can honestly say I have never had a bad experience there. If you've never been there, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

I cut my teeth on this pizza that was over twenty years ago. It's the best pizza!!! Period. I will have words with anyone who says otherwise. If you think the staff is rude just read the signs that posted by the pizza kitchen. Nuff said!!!

This place is sweet. I recommend starting off with a dominant bloody mary. The pizza and bloody combo is sure to satisfy. Go for the atmosphere, stay for the bloody's and pizza.

Recently, I learned Red Savoy's was listed as the Best Pizza in the Twin Cities. I drove from the western suburbs to St. Paul with anticipation. Moving from NJ I have been trying to find great pizza! I was quickly disappointed! I found the seating host and waitress the rudest people I even encountered in my life! The host was arguing me when I wanted a different table and the waitress ignored our table. As I was leaving I told them I was disappointed and was not coming back. She responded, "GOOD." Dealing with the employees ruins your dining experience! I would not recommend eating here!!!!

Pros: Great Toppings

Cons: Rude Employees, Poor Service, Crowded

They know they dont have to treat there customer with respect because they know people keep comming back for the pizza. Its the best in the twin cities. Some of the employs would not last an hour at most resraunts.

As I was reading the previous reviews, I was struck by how many people claimed they received bad service at the Savoy. My family has been dining at the Savoy for almost 4 decades and even though the staff have been extremely busy at times, they have always been friendly. I will be introducing my 10 month old son to the best pizza in Minnesota this weekend in hopes of passing on the tradition.

Pros: The pizza, Now - Non-Smoking

.

The only thing worse than the horrible, horrible service here is the actual pizza. The establishment seems to be geared more towards gimmicky diviness and less towards making authentically good pie. The pizza doesn't differ much from cheap frozen brands. The sauce is acidic, the cheese cheap and greasy. To those who consider RS the best, I have one word: PUNCH!!!

Funny how some people complain about "parking problems" when Savoy is probably the only pizza place in St. Paul with their own FREE parking lot. Funny how some people complain about the service, but fail to mention that the place is so packed at night that the waitresses can't even walk, let alone see from one end of the restaurant to the other. I would challenge anyone to find a pizza place that's even close to as crowded as Savoy on any night of the week- I have never even seen a pizza place that was totally packed wall to wall in my life until I went to Savoy. If you think there's a better pizza place in town, go there on a weeknight and tell me there are more people there than at Savoy. Anyone who says that Savoy is not the best pizza in town is in denial.

Pros: Great food, free parking, cheap drinks

Cons: no smoking, small bathrooms, no free pop refills

Red's is dark and old fashioned but I will tell you this, I've never tasted pizza like Red's. We were nervous about going there the first time as the reviews made the waitresses sound awful, but we have always had good service. They tell us that our pizza will take 40 minutes so we have brought books or papers with us to make the wait easier. I would highly recommend going there if you patient and hungry for the best pizza EVER!!!!

Pros: Nummy pizza, TV's

Cons: waiting for food

Great thin crust pizza with sauce so salty that you'll drink a gallon of water afterwards...

Toppings are generous and thisck but leave enough room for their excellent sauce and cheese.

My favorite is thier pepperoni and sausage...

After begging the waitress to bring me the root beer that I ordered instead of the coke she heard, waiting 50 minutes for the pizza, and explaning how to use a visa gift card something was taken away from the taste of their pizza.

Bottom line - Take out and call a day ahead.
