Cincinnati Pizza Week kicks off Tuesday, Nov. 1, offering residents and visitors the chance to try our city’s best slices at discounted prices. Hosted by CityBeat, the seven-day event will feature $8, 10-inch signature pies and secret menu specialties from restaurants across Cincinnati. If you’re joining in the tasty celebration, be sure to add a stamp to your “Pizza Week passport” at these participating Uptown pizzerias.

Mac’s Pizza

Mac Ryan, the dynamic owner of Mac’s Pizza Pub, has charged himself with a new kind of innovation in the kitchen. With a staple like pizza, that jump could be difficult – but not for Mac. He locally sources ingredients, refuses to bring in precut vegetables and partners with a local butcher to grind the sausage to his specs. Stop in to enjoy one of Mac’s classic pies or find a new favorite with his award-winning Chicago Gyro pizza.

Martino’s on Vine

With a wide-ranging Italian-American menu, full-service bar and 14 televisions, Martino’s offers up the ultimate game-day viewing experience. Located just one block from the University of Cincinnati, the Short Vine hot spot serves pizza, sandwiches, hoagies, appetizers and salads with a focus on premium ingredients and generous portions.


If you can dream it, Pieology can dish it out. The Clifton restaurant serves personally-inspired pizzas in unlimited flavor combinations, all stone-fired and ready to enjoy in less than five minutes. With a wide selection of house-made crusts, signatures sauces and unlimited fresh toppings, Pieology is fast and casual, with a team that never cuts corners on quality.
