Red's Savoy Pizza
No one would bother going to this little tavern on the edge of St. Paul's East side if they didn't have some of the best pizza in the United States. Savoy piles the toppings on so there's no need to ask for double anything. The tiny square pieces have a crispy crust and just the right amount of sauce. The ambiance is reminiscent of an ice fishing shack and just like with ice fishing, there may be quite a wait on weekends. But the low-slung bar with light-up beer signs help the booths seem like comfortable seating. Don't let the parking lot scare you off as this is the real deal.
We have moved to Florida but everytime we come back to MN to see the kids, it is a must
to go to Red's Savoy Pizza, we have enjoyed the St. Paul 7th Street place for over 30 years. We consider it to be the best pizza in the United States and we have traveled by RV all over.
Go to Red's and try it out.
we went to red savoy's because of an add we seen in the paper. I had eaten there before but my friend had not. The pizza is very good but they were not ready for the type of business the ad brought out. first we had to wait for almost a half an hour just to be seated. the tables were too close together and you could barely move. Then when we got our table we had preordered hoping to save some time but the waitress got kind of mad because we had 3 different orders for one table and put all the orders on 1 ticket. Each of us had wanted a different kind of pizza so we each had ordered our own small one. I ordered a diet coke to drink and my friend had a coke which came in cans, warm with a glass of ice which of coarse melted as soon as the warm soda hit it. The other 2 ordered a cherry coke and a sprite which came in a 6 or 8 ounce glass. Every other resturant now days gives free refills with fountain pop but not Savoy's. the cans were $1.25 and the glass was $1.00 each glass which we were not informed of. When we mentioned that the waitress says that they do not do that and it says so on the menu. We looked at a menu while we were standing waiting for a table and really did not read the fine print thinking we would probally get one when we sat down so we could better look at it. We waited over an hour after we sat down to get our pizza then they brought out my friends and 10 minutes later mine and 5 minutes later our other friends, they were all ordered on one ticket at the same time. finally after waiting for the waitress to get our to go boxes and then the bill we got our bill all on one slip and were asked how much we wanted to put on each card. When we told her we wanted it seperated she said they did not do that and on the menu it said one bill per table. I am not sure where it said that as we were only trying to order our food and not worried about the fine print. It took us another 15 minutes to figure out the bill ourselfs and then had to wait again for the waitress to return. When I complained to management I was told she would talk to the waitress. Not an I am sorry or anything but just that she would speak to the waitress. If I were to give points for this pizza place the food would get a 7 and the service a 1 maybe 2. I WILL NOT GO BACK.
I get this pizza whenever I'm in St. Paul. It is just plain good. A real throw back Italian atmosphere in the dimly lit eating area. Nothing fancy to look at, but GOOD PIZZA! Parking is a disaster outside but deal with it, it is worth the hassle!!!
Best Pizza in the Twin Cities hands down! We order extra cheese everytime and the sausage is great. Really dark atmosphere, but it's sort of a novelty. You almost feel like your in an old style pizza joint back in the 70's.
Love the pizza ... Service was ummm , Well lets just say they need to get a new GM and a whole new face lift on service. Server was loud and very annoying (on drugs or something) Reminded me of Chris Farley . A can of pop @ only $1.25 LOL . Also update your website - pizza was $2 less on there ...
Wonderful, cozy environment and very friendly staff. Their pizza is good, but has too much sauce for me. They have excellent french fries though. If you are dining in, be sure and order pitchers of soda or beer... it will be MUCH cheaper than ordering one drink at a time (they serve sodas in a can). The food is salty so you will need more than one can of soda for sure!
This noisy, crowded place has been popular with the hip, artsy crowd since the early 1980s, but do not be
intimidated. Everyone can enjoy the great food, friendly service and pleasant surroundings. Come for the spectacular fire roasted pizza, ...
Uptown's snazziest restaurant is yet another feather in the cap of the D'Amico culinary empire. The animated, noisy dining room
is flanked by a popular martini bar and a show kitchen. The place is constantly packed so call ahead. ...
Located near the Target Center , Gluek's draws a huge crowd on event nights, otherwise it is a relatively quiet
