Just what you'd expect in a University town, pizza with style. The servers boast tattoos and various piercings, which suits this colorful, artistic pizzeria in the heart of Little Five Points. The oil painting of James Dean is an interesting addition to the brightly-painted dining area, and the loud rock music completes an ambiance you won't find at any Pizza Hut. Veggie lovers should try the white on white, a monstrous feast of multiple cheeses. Beer and wine served, inside and on the small patio.
I think better than the pizza I ordered was the service. I'd not looked at the website before ordering so I really had no idea about what I was getting myself into. The guy who took my order was friendly and helpful... not only that but my food got to my place in RECORD time. I ordered a calzone and the chicken ceaser salad (which was recommended to me by the person who took my order), the salad was AMAZING, I really suggest trying it!
After reading their impressive web page, I was a bit dissapointed in the actual restaurant. The comic book theme of the restaurant, in my opinion, was a bit silly also, but one can expect just about anything in L5P. I decided to create my own pizza rather than ordering one of their pre-defined specialities; testing the limits so to speak. It was a very slow night and there were only two other customers there at the time I arrived, about 8:00 PM. The pizza was delivered without haste and I dug in. All toppings that I ordered (cheese X2, pepperoni X2, onions X2, sausage, mushrooms (appeared canned), and bananna peppers were quite tasty. As an added bonus I ordered the red pepper sauce in place of the usual tomato sauce, and it was quite good, also. The crust was crisp and yeasty, but the first thing I noticed was that is was way to thin to support my selections of toppings. I mostly had to eat the pizza with my fork. Unfortunately there were no other crust options other than thin crust. Also, the pepperoni was placed on top of the other toppings, which IMO is a drastic error, causing much of same to be crispy when eating. I have always judged a good pizza by the crust, the sauce, and the pepperoni. A good pepperoni to me is thick and slightly curled at the edges upon presentation, with the excess oil from same oozing into the rest of the pizza for that extra taste bonus. I will definitely go back to this place on my next visit, though. The atmosphere of the L5P area continues to becon.
Savage Pizza has food unlike any other pizza place. They make all the sauces themselves, and there are six or so to choose from. The place is colorful and the comic book theme extends to figures dangling from the ceiling (and pages covering the bathroom walls...). It's kid-friendly, with a big stack of toys ready for playing. The outdoor patio is fun and great for Little Five Points people watching, but gets a little too cold in the winter. Back to the food -- they have sandwiches (try the meatball sub!) and calzones, lots of toppings, and great bread twists. There are about 5 or 6 nice wines to choose from, and they serve beer, soda and coffee, too. Then there's the cheesecake and midnight cake, and they deliver Ben & Jerry's.
The best pizzas are the Cajun (spicy and meaty) and the Chicken Florentine. But you can't go wrong with any of the choices... They can get expensive but it's worth it.

Tucked away from the traffic of Little Five Points, this homey spot is easily missed, but not by locals. Crowds
