2005-06-29 10:15:14   I have to disagree. This pizza is well worth trying, but with one cavet - it's delicious hot, but it tastes awful cold or reheated - kinda odd. —ChrisYoung

2005-06-29 09:26:23   I had a calzone there the other day, but didn't try the other. A- food in my book. —FarMcKon

2006-01-06 14:11:29   They have a snazzy new vegan menu including a garbage plate and philly cheese steak. Good stuff. —EdwardDale

2006-03-26 16:34:36   Was pretty excited for the upside-down concept, and was sorely disappointed. Sauce is the #1 priority in my book and theirs just tastes cheap. —MattDana

2006-04-14 02:10:35   The make-your-own vegan pizzas are really good. —JulieRothman

2006-04-15 15:43:44   They used to be way better... not sure what happened. New cook? The Chicken Wing pizza used to be awesome, but they don't seem to use as much bluecheese or chicken any more. The guys who work there are really nice, though, for whatver that's worth. —MariahBetz

Once tried their vegan cheesesteak pizza, and it was all right, but I agree with Chris that it sucks as leftovers. If you plan on getting a Two Paisans pizza of any type, better get a small size and have a bunch of your friends share it with you. —CatherineConnolly

2006-10-20 18:09:26   I love the upside down pepperoni pizza, but I haven't tried anything else. The service is usually good (be prepared to wait about 15 minutes for your pizza though), but last time, they completely ran out of napkins and had to run down the street somewhere to find more. How does a restaurant run out of napkins?? —RachelBlumenthal

2006-10-23 15:43:37   I tried this once on the recommendation of friends and really didn't like it. I agree with others who have problems with the sauce, and I'd also like to add that the crust was EXTREMLY salty, to the point that I almost couldn't eat it. —IsaacVanDuyn

2006-11-09 22:16:28   As of this week, Two Paisans is under new management and has discontinued its vegan menu. —AdamDurand

2007-02-25 10:06:51   Heard that Two Paisans closed about a week and a half ago :( Anyone know details? —RachelBlumenthal

2007-05-07 12:56:24   If you're missing Two Paisans like I am, nearly identical pizza can be found in Utica at O'Scugnizzo's Pizzeria (and it can be ordered online to be baked at home, anywhere in the US, at From what I've heard, O'Scugnizzo's is the original inventor of upside down pizza. Like others have mentioned, definitely make sure to eat it hot. It gets kind of gross as it sits around. I'm not a huge fan of the crust, but the novelty of everything being upside-down makes up for it, at least for me. —RachelBlumenthal

2007-05-07 15:35:04   I sure miss their vegan pizza. —EastSideStephen
