Bottoms up Richmond Review
When it comes to pizza, Bottom’s Up in Richmond, Virginia does it right and does it big. Not only is their pizza fresh and topped with only the best ingredients, but even just one slice will be more than enough to satisfy even the biggest appetites. Their food is fantastic, the atmosphere is a lot of fun, and it seems that just about every customer leaves with a great big smile on their faces.
Located in the historic, trendy area of Shockoe Bottom, one of Richmond’s most beloved districts, Bottom’s Up has a unique look for a unique restaurant. The friendly staff greet customers with wide smiles and helpful attitudes, gladly answering questions about the menu and offering their own suggestions for first-time diners.
Though Bottom’s Up offers a wide variety of salads, sandwiches, and pasta, it is their pizza that is the real standout. Enormous, thick slices of pizza with crisp crust, tons of cheese, fresh sauce, and perfectly applied toppings make their pizza incredibly delicious – it is easy to see what all of the fuss is about. It is hard to find a native Richmonder who doesn’t rave about the pizza at Bottom’s Up!
Of particular note are the Steve’s Favorite pizza (red sauce with sliced chicken, caramelized onions, and roasted red pepper), the Greek pizza (white sauce, topped with spinach, tomatoes, onions, feta, black olives, and pepperoncini), and the Chesapeake pizza (white sauce, topped with fresh crab meat, sweet onions, and seasoned with Old Bay). All of the pizzas are fantastic and unique, of course, and there is also the option to create your own, but those three pizzas are especially good!
Bottom’s Up is a great choice for those with dietary limitations, particularly for those who are forced to avoid gluten. They have a gluten-free pizza crust that can be applied to any of the signature pizza choices, and there is even a gluten-free thin crust option! For people on a restricted diet, Bottom’s Up allows them the freedom to enjoy the same foods as everyone else.
With a full bar, huge menu, and excellent, reasonable prices, Bottom’s Up is one of Richmond’s finest restaurants. Take the opportunity to visit this gem in Shockoe Bottom the next time you are looking for a great place for a night out with friends and family, and especially when you are looking for a great slice of pizza!
