When I first moved to SE Portland, my guy said we had to go here because it was the only pizza that has actual 'big pieces of meat on it' and he wasn't kidding. It's a cozy pizza atmosphere with a quaint movie theatre next door - where you can also grab a slice! - and although I make no complaints about the yum factor of the pizza, I will pass on their extremely hard breadsticks next time. Go for the pizza, but forget the extras! Very reasonably priced also with many different options.

We love this place, the pizza is delicious and the atmosphere is relaxing and family friendly. We have many end of the season sports parties here. Their Miss Piggy pizza is amazing, one piece is a meal in itself. Our kids enjoy watching the talented pizza tossers do their magic too.

This is the closest to killer east coast (NY/MA) pizza I've found out here. Absolutely fabulously deadly. They offer green olives for toppings, and that alone makes me love them, plus beer, wine, and Scrabble.

Did I mention that the pizza is fabulous and the whole wheat crust option is super tasty as well?

Do you like thin, crispy pizza with paper-thin slices of ingredients? Well, if you do - DON'T COME HERE. This is thick, rich, juicy, flavorful, dripping pizza on fresh-baked bread. The decor - who cares? The service - be alert and make

We live in the area, so this place is convenient, but that's about all it has going.

We've been quite a few times but the last time was just ridiculous. My boyfriend has a slightly out of ordinary name and he is used to people having a hard time pronouncing it. The pronunciation was so off that he didn't recognize it, so he waited quite a bit longer not realizing they had already called his name. So when he went up to grab the pizza he apologized. The guy behind the counter responded that maybe my boyfriend should change his name or use a different name to order with. To add insult to injury the pizza wasn't even good.

I gave them a 2 star because if they actually cook the pizza it can be good. If they dont? Just save yourself the hassle and take it home to cook it. They act like they are the only pizza joint in Portland. We love the quirkiness of the place and pizza is the kind we like. Thick crust, lots of big toppings, decent salad bar. But we have given them several chances to change their who gives a damn attitude and crummy service. I had emailed back and forth to the owner about the issues we have had with each location and I got nothing. Just a weak apology and a, ""I do the best I can, not much more I can do"" Not only did we not get at least a coupon for a free pitcher of soda for our troubles, we got taken off the birthday list so we no longer get the birthday coupon, Really? As for the other locations? The one in Tualatin Extremely rude! We were the only ones in the restaurant when a gal on crutches comes in. She orders, sits down at a near table. They call her. She tries to get up and has trouble. They holler even louder-looking straight at her and throw it down on the counter like he is so busy and bothered and walk away. I walk over, tell her to sit and went and got her the pizza and a drink. When I grabbed it I asked the guy wth is wrong with you?! Didnt you see she has problems? He snarled at me and walked away again. When I said something to the guy making pizza he said that was the manager. ??! \r
I work way to hard for my money to waste it on jerks. We will be locating the nice guy-loves their customers pizza joint who will apreciate us.\r

I called Flying Pie to reserve a pizza party for my son's birthday with 20 of his closest friends. The staff was absolutely wonderful to work with from 1st the phone call to
how well they treated me and the party members. The food was delicious and the kids were able to just hang out and not feel rushed. I have always had good experience at Flying Pie and I and am so glad I called for this event!

I had memories of the awesomeness that was Flying Pie when I was in high school and apparently didn't know better. We used to hang out there all the time!

Either it was lack of experience talking, or they've gone extremely downhill in the past 10-15 years.

The decor is uniquely Portland. In that, I thought it was a great place to take some friends from out of town... but I was embarrassed by the time we left.

The place just felt... dirty. Dusty, grimy, the tables were kind of sticky. And the pizza was not that of my memories. The crust was kind of yeasty - like the dough had sat too long. And speaking of sitting, it tasted like it had been hanging out a while too. Given how long it took for our order to come up, I imagine it was sitting for a while before they got around to letting us know.

I wish I could take back this visit and have the memories of my youth untarnished.

I take the family + extended family out to pizza once a month. We like to try different places, but end up coming back to flying pie more often than not due to the consistently great tasting pizza. We know that coming to flying pie we'll get plenty of toppings on our pizza's and a nice atmosphere. The pies cost a little more than i'd like to spend, but you really do get what you pay for with this place. I've paid similar prices at other pizza restaurants (hot lips) and was very dissapointed. I like the decor + the candles at the tables. When your pizza arrives they're placed on special pizza holders over the candles on your table which helps keep your pizza warm while dining + making a nice ambience. We're going there tonight for $2 dollar tuesday movies at the academy theatre and then pizza at flying pie next door :)

Flying Pie. I was a bit hesitant to try this place since they had so many locations around and thought it would be ""not so original chain pizza""... but decided to try it since they're one of the few places that offer gluten-free crust. Dude. I ordered a gluten-free pie and I was pleasantly surprised. Piled high with toppings! I mean it. Every time i go there it's the same... BAM! Like there was a mushroom, olive, mozzarella avalanche in the kitchen! The cheese they use is top quality and boy do they cover that pizza with it. I believe they use Nu-grain gluten-free crusts which are used in a few other pizza parlors around town. A good tasting, thin crust that somehow magically holds the toppings they dump on there. Their house dough/crust is good too. A little thicker than I like... but it tastes very good. They also sell pizza by the slice 11-4. Go check em out. The Academy Theatre next door sells Flying Pie by the slice too.

I am a frequent customer of all locations- pizza is always great! Whole milk mozzarella and hand tossed crust makes all the difference. The small cheese will feed 2 and its only $10! It's so good, I won't go anywhere else and when I'm craving pizza- they are the only to satisfy.

Just in shock at all of the 5 star rating this place gets. I was a fan of the one in_____, but the one here in Portland is worst place I have ever eaten in my entire life! I was over charged for the most disgusting slice of pizza I have ever seen- that took 35 min to prepare! The employees were rude, slow and really really dirty looking - and I have to mention very bad at math. The whole place was as filthy as it gets. I'm stunned that that this place stays in business, but even more shocked that it has not been shut down for it's dirty condition. ****Can't stress enough that this place is a stomach infections' best friend. Just don't go.

And let him / her know how bad of a job he / she is doing with this place. It has great potential, the location is great and who doesn't love pizza? I won t go in detail with how I was treated by the employees or how bad the food was... Let me just leave it to: This is one of the few places a man will remember their entire life and will deeply hate. If I ever see the owner of this place, I would RUN up to him and let them know what I think of his work. I hope this place SINKS and never open anywhere else. What a shack!

The pizza is consistently good. The staff are quick, the decor is unique. However, last night, I was disappointed when one of the staff sat down with his friend, and she began bellowing vulgarity as if it were a private residence. Seated next to them were a mom and her young son trying to enjoy a meal. After several trumpets of the f word and other unacceptable verbage, folks from surrounding tables got uncomfortable and left. I was disappointed the nearby staff seemed to shrug it off as nothing, and essentiallly condoned it. I felt uncomfortable for the mom. To be sure, I am not a moral model of any sort, but try using a little discretion with such language and keep it private, or at least quiet. If I were to begin such a dialogue in a public place, I'd expect to be asked to leave, period. Great food, but leave the family at home.

I agree with the other bad reviews. This place is dirty and the pizza tastes old and nasty. I recently walked across the street to order a pizza and have a beer while I waited because my friend just had a baby and was starving. As I had my first sip of beer I began watching and starting getting sick to my stomach. I witnessed 2 employees handling dirty dishes and then making salads. I left my beer and walked out without even remembering if I had paid. Well I didn't and it's a good thing. The only sad part is someone probably got my pizza and I'm sure it tasted bad because come to find out, the reason why half the time their pizza tastes old is because if they have screw ups they leave them in the oven and wait til someone else orders the same one.

We used to order from this place 2-3 years ago. It was never spectacular, but it was good enough. I moved back into the neighborhood recently and called for a delivery. The guy I talked to was a class-A a**hole - the kind of situation where the customer can't win. You can be as nice as possible, but these jerks have an ax to grind and they'll get their knives in.

The crust is awful at this place, they pre roll them and then the dough dries out or something, all in all its a really bad crust. I have never ever ever had anything but borderline rude service here, and it shows, the restaurant is really dirty and there doesn't seem to be much pride from the employees. The prices are way too high for the product. I would look past the service and prices and come here more often if the pizza was better.

This pizza is simply boring. It kind of ruined a night. After working hard all week long it was time to go out for some good cheap eats... pizza, But this pizza was not pleasing at all. Texture was poor(very soggy). The toppings were not so fresh. The sauce was very unevenly spread. I can't believe this joint has any recognition in anyone's book.

Wow - I am absolutely dumbfounded as to how this pizza could have rated #2 in the readers choice vote. Is the competition really that scarce? Both my wife and I thought it was terrible.... and I mean really - how hard is it to make a decent pizza? You know they say pizza is like making love - even when it's bad it's good. Not in this case. The cheese was not fully melted, it was WAY to salty, the dough was over kneaded and thus tough and chewy, there was no unique flavor - I really cant come up with any redeeming qualities about this pie. Oh also there was a strange smell to the pizza that I can't put my finger on... but it wasn't pleasant. Avoid.\r

Overrated and they don't seem to know it. Whatever once worked with this place it is not working anymore. An overhaul of the decor, the pizza, and the staff are seriously needed. I'd rather pick up a Papa Murphy's than go back here.

Another overrated pizza joint resting on its laurels. Whoever owns this place needs to come in and clean house, starting with the management. From the second we walked in the door the lines and poor service began. Half pizzas no problem the sign said, wrong. They screwed up our entire order and then acted as if it was our fault. Maybe we'll try another Flying Pie sometime, but I'm not in a hurry to do it.

I absolutely can not recommend this place. As a lover of pizza I've tried them all and this was just average. The service on the other hand was utterly hopeless. Long wait to order a pizza that we had to get up and serve to ourselves anyway. Pizza just thrown together. No love for this joint.

My wife and I met two friends we hadn't seen in months for dinner on a Tuesday night. We were catching up and having a nice time. Then the pizza boy called us up to the order window by whispering our name into the microphone. He told us he couldn't hear their phone ringing and we needed to keep it down. Seriously? This is a pizza joint where you serve yourselves, not a haute French five star. We got a good laugh at that, so they followed that up by making our pizza incorrect and then telling us we couldn't have another beer. Apparently two beers a night is the limit here. If we hadn't have had to pay for our meal up front at the do-it yourself counter we would have walked out. And if we hadn't been running late for a movie next door we would have told them to remake the pie. Anyway, mediocre pizzas, and ridiculously bad service. Too bad, because this place could have been good.

Looking at the 94 reviews before me, most of them said this place had great pizza and slow service. It was not the service that was slow. They quoted me 30 minutes to make my medium pizza on a Friday night at 8:30pm. They were not backed up, not really crowded. It was just their standard time to make a pizza. The pizza came out in about 25 minutes, they were right. The pizza was ok, the crust was too crisp. The dough was nothing special. In my opinion, Chicago style pizza means great dough. Their dough was just so, so. Would I go back? No. I can have okay pizza 10 minutes away from my house, not the 20 minutes to get there, plus the 30 minutes for my food.

Their dough was just so, so. Would I go back? No. I can have okay pizza 10 minutes away from my house, not the 20 minutes to get there, plus the 30 minutes for my food.

Had one close to our home but gave up on it. Long lines, High prices plus it always seemed very salty. Unfriendly employees butI am sure they use quality ingredients

this is the place for you. We ordered it with three toppings and the pizza literally weighed around 5 lbs. Some of you may like that, and that's fine, but if you do you had better also like your toppings uncooked and your crust soggy. They put so many toppings on that it's just annoying to eat and, like I said, they don't get cooked through. The pizza was completely inedible and we chucked it and ate something else.

WORST PIZZA EVER!!! This pizza is bad even for Portland. They advertise as authentic New York pizza which is a crock. They obviously haven't been anywhere near New York because the crust no good and the sauce tasts like ragu. As for the toppings...the sausages are literally like boulders, the pepperonis had no flavor and the vegetables were thick cut. They should be jailed for false advertising. No self respecting New Yorker would ever be caught buying a slice from these guys.

The pizza is tasty but the staff makes the place unbearable. If you must have flying pie order to go. Better yet get yourself pie from somewhere else.

With all the haute pizzas to be found in Portlandia (chi chi with exotic ingredients), I must confess to being a good ole Americana pizza lover. I mean pies stacked to the ceiling with ample toppings atop a blissful sour dough crust. But for me, what makes or breaks a pie is the sauce. I am addicted to the sauce. And the Flying Pie delivers in all these areas. I LOVE this place. While a bit on the spendy side, and jam-packed with kiddies running amok, the pizza here is one of the best I have ever had. Be sure to order the Italian seasonings on the top. Mmmmm, it is artery-hardening goodness.

Pros: The pizza is fantastic

Cons: The dining room can get a bit messy with the crowds and the kids

We waited an hour until our pizza came. I think it was only after I bugged them that they realized my order even existed and they had to do it really quick. We were sitting in the dining room, and the guy handed us the pizza in a to go box. How rude is that?

This was the first pizza place I found in Portland that actually hits you with the fantastic garlic, bready, spicy aromas you should smell in a pizzeria! From the moment you walk in, you know it's going to be good. \r
\r
And it is good! And it is HEAVY. We love this pizza, but it is very loaded with cheese and all the great toppings. Be careful of your arteries and balance it salad.\r
\r
There is a large downstairs room that is good for larger groups. Probably a good idea to call ahead for reservations for groups over 6 -10. \r
\r
Very casual atmosphere. Good for kids because there's lots of noise already.... but it's all fun noise.

Flying Pie Pizzaria is a little gem just a wee bit further out of the inner SE that i happily stumbled upon one day. The place has a very old school feeling about it.. and all the guys that work there are really friendly and upbeat. There are pizza crusts to choose from from new york to chicago style... and yes there is an abundance of toppings........... but i am a vegetarian and this couldnt have worked out better... vegetables are good for you.... and if you love the meat... you will get plenty.... and if you think there are too much of the toppings.. i guess just ask for less next time. as far as pizza goes...... i love pizza... cardboard style.. deep dish style. pizza is yummy in all its different forms and this place has a great variety and has just a nice feel to it.

Pros: delicioso

There are many good places for pizza. This one is among the best, especially for NY style. It is in my rotation of favorite pizza spots.

It's really too bad that Portlanders have no clue what outstanding pizza is. Yeah there's a handful of decent pizza places, but NOTHING to brag about. I agree with with everyone who complained about the ridiculously long wait, and the overabundance of toppings at Flying Pie. Don't give me any garbage about getting your money's worth by getting flooded with a half-pound of pepperoni. Have you ever watched the Food Network's specials on pizza places? You sure don't see toppings dominating the pie. It's all about the freshness and quality of the dough, sauce, cheese and toppings. AND being cooked in a wood-fired or coal oven, not on a conveyor belt contraption!!! I come from Phoenix, where for years it was a problem getting great pizza. But the East Coast and midwest transplants finally established numerous outstanding pizza restaurants there. Hopefully this can happen here too....before I get too old that is.

I have never had a better pizza than the ones at Flying Pie. I live in Bend 150 miles away. My friends and I will often ride our motorcycles to Portland for the day just to get a combo MEAT!! pizza. \r
There is NONE BETTER!! It makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Flying Pie, Here I come!!\r
AT the age of 61 I have tried a lot of different pizza and know what is the BEST!!

To only a few of the knuckle-heads who say it's the worst..Too many toppings? Go elsewhere and NOT get what you paid for. You bet that if I buy a $30 pie, it had better have some substance. Had to use a knife and fork..boo-hoo. To anyone complaining about having to provide a receipt..bummer. How would you like it if some person came up and claimed your food? You'd most likely be more frustrated with that. To the person who said there is only one restroom with a burnt out light..there are in fact four restrooms, and always light for me. As for the grease..well I cannot entirely disagree, but I do see them flipping over the pies to fight that. To the person who said it takes 5 minutes for them to throw a skin, bluntly, you are full of it or you don't know how to read a clock and in either case, your statement is false. Also, I have had to wait a while for my food when the house is not packed, but guess what, they take orders over the phone too as well as catering orders and make pies for the theater. I can only guess this has an effect on the wait. I think the staff there is rather patient, considering some of the people who had all that time in line to decide what they wanted go up unprepared. Maybe y'all should step to the back of the line and get it together so I can get in and out sooner. I'd never say don't go there, but if you can't handle old-school parlor appeal with all the kids having the best night ever there, perhaps this isn't the place for you. I know this place has become tradition for many, I have heard of kids growing up to take their kids there..that's good, tried and true. I won't claim it is the best overall, I haven't eaten at every pizza place to truly say that, but I will claim it is the best I have ever eaten.Don't get me wrong, I can see that some folks have well founded complaints, but overall, it is a good product, and the overwhelming positive reviews prove that.

11/29/07. Ordering was relatively quick. Guy taking out order was nice, easy going. We liked the staff and the atmosphere. We ordered a half and half pizza. The wait was less than stated and when we got our pizza we were looking forward to a nice hardy meal. \r
\r
I had pepperoni on my half. WAY overloaded. The crust (thin) couldn't handle it. It was soggy. The only crisp part of the crust was the very outside edge. My wife had Ms. Piggy on her half. 3 times the meat as the pepperoni, so it just looked like a heap on the dish. The crust was literally soaked through. Just not good at all. Sloppy. Soggy. Just a mess. It's hard to remember a bigger let down.

This pizza is simply boring. It kind of ruined a night. After working hard all week long it was time to go out for some good cheap eats... pizza, But this pizza was not pleasing at all. Texture was poor(very soggy). The toppings were not so fresh. The sauce was very unevenly spread. I can't believe this joint has any recognition in anyone's book.
