Kids and adults alike love the ooey-gooey taste and texture of pizza. From dine-in experiences to takeout and movie nights and everything in between, Staunton’s got the pizzeria for you. Read on for nine of our best.
Shenandoah Pizza and Taphouse
The pizza at Shenandoah Pizza and Taphouse is fresh and flavorful and fully embraces Staunton’s enthusiasm for farm-to-table fare. This low-key pizzeria offers a dozen gourmet selections named after local businesses. Sip happy from an extensive beer list and enjoy live music on the weekends. Tuesday night is family night and happy hours happen on Thursdays.
Newtown Baking is good at more than pastries. Come for dinner and choose from a variety of wood-fired, gourmet pizzas and appetizers such as marinated olives and meatballs. Nice weather? Plan to dine in their exterior courtyard. Dinner is served Wednesday – Saturday, 5-9 p.m.
Bedlam Brewing is a microbrewery that just happens to cook up some pretty darned delicious food. While most of the items on the elevated pub-fare menu will work up your tastebuds, the wood-fired pizza or the garlic and cheese stromboli should be at the top of your need-to-try list. Bedlam is kid-friendly and offers indoor seating as well as patio seating that welcomes dogs. Pizzas are on special on Sunday and Monday nights.
Bricks Restaurant and Pub
If you’re looking for a cool place to get a drink, a pizza, and play pool in downtown Staunton, make Bricks your next stop. Still hungry? Donuts are on the menu for dessert. Check the events page for the regular heavy metal nights if you want some massive sound and guitar solos with your pizza pie!
New York Flying Pizza
A lot of Stauntonians will tell you their go-to pizza joint for carryout or delivery is New York Flying Pizza. The pies are generous and have great “cheese pull” because they’re loaded with all that stretchy cheese you remember from childhood. The restaurant offers a full menu of pies, sides, subs, and pasta dishes. You can order your food online and there is a dining room.
Maria’s Pizza & Italian Restaurant
Maria’s Pizza serves pizza, subs, and traditional Italian entrees. If the weather is nice, sip a glass of wine or beer with your slice and hang out on the new patio. You can even bring your dog! Thursday happy hours start at 4 p.m. See webpage for daily specials.
Out for some fun in the park? Stop by Fresco on your way home and pick up a pizza (or two). Since 2011, Fresco has been serving up genuine Italian-style pizza, pasta, and subs. You can order take-out, delivery, or eat your dinner in Fresco’s dining room. Check out the daily specials.
Byers Street Bistro
If you enjoy spending a summer night eating pizza on a patio, look no further than Byers Street Bistro. The Bistro has an extensive menu and doesn’t specialize in pizza, but their meat and vegetable pizzas are made with hand-tossed dough and are really yummy, and they run pizza specials on Tuesday night.
