Pizza Stop Greece

The Pizza Stop has been serving Rochester it's original New York Pizza since 1986. A taste of New York City, right here at home.


The Pizza Stop opened the original location at 123 State Street in Downtown, in 1986 with one mission: to serve the same pizza in Rochester that the Staffieri family had served in their original Brooklyn pizza parlor. We were the first to offer the crisp, New York thin crust, stuffed and specialty pizzas in the Rochester area.

After 26 years of proudly serving the downtown area, we are so pleased to be able to offer the same high-quality, fresh, hot and delicious pizza to the residents of Greece. You can now get exactly the same pizzas as our downtown location. Eat in with us, take it home – or have us deliver those steaming hot specialty pizzas right to your door!

From the very beginning, we have been innovative by combining new flavors to come up with creative and delicious specialty pizzas. We use the highest quality ingredients, making our pizzas from scratch daily. Over the years we have done many things, but one thing will never change — our family will make the best tasting pizza that we’re proud to serve to your family.

      Thanks for your feedback, Stephanie – sorry you didn’t have a better experience. Can you tell me when you visited the store and what you weren’t happy with in terms of the customer service? We’d like to make sure that all of our staff is adhering to our service standards, so the more specific you can be, the better we can address things!

        Just my two cents, I have NO personal stake here. I know at any time customer service anywhere can go wrong – someone has a bad night or whatever. But I get a pizza here once a month and I come from a different town to get it. In two or three years I have not had a bad customer service experience there. They are always friendly and have always treated me with respect. I’m ordering here for New Years Eve.

    I’ve worked across the street from the Pizza Stop and have visited it for years on my lunch break. I appreciate having them right next to my place of employment. The pizza and garlic knots are the absolute best in Rochester, bar none. My favorite is the stuffed buffalo chicken pizza. My mouth begins to water just thinking about it 🙂
    From my experience, the customer service has always been polite, attentive and overall excellent. You can tell they care about the product they sell and the custoemrs they serve.

    I started going to the Pizza Stop in Greece after reading a story on them in the Democrat & Chronicle last fall. I fell in love with their pizza, and now I order from there about once a month. Everyone is always friendly and helpful. Love it. I won’t go anywhere else.

    I’m visiting from Alabama and I just want to say that the stuffed buffalo chicken pizza and the garlic knots are amazing. I have been “ordered” by my daughter to bring some home with me. Also customer service was very fast and friendly.

    Love us or hate us, we low-level local government employees pretty much subsist on a diet of Pizza Stop pizza and broken dreams.

    Pizza is amazing! I moved here from Brooklyn, so appreciate this place more than you know. Customer service at the downtown spot does suck though; they’re rude and act like you’re a pain.

    Best NYC style pie in Rochester. Best blend of cheeses. Totally remodeled the downtown seating area too. Awesome. Also, the owner has always been a really nice guy, everytime I’ve had the chance I thank him. Downtown would be unfamiliar with out them there. Kudos.

    My family is addicted to your pizza and every time we want to get pizza, they all yell Pizza Stop. I only wish you were open later and on Sundays. My husband is there quite frequently, so often he is on a first name basis with your employees. Ha!

    How did I not know this was here?!? I go to the downtown spot pretty much weekly. Can you get the frozen take home stuffed at the Greece location too?

    The stuffed Buffalo chkn and stuffed chkn parm are my go-to favorites for lunch but all your pies are phenomenal!
