This is my favorite restaurant in Eugene, hands down. The menu is really creative -paying homage to traditional pies, all the while innovating the tried and trued with organic and delicious ingredients that aren't on most menus. The beer selection is excellent. The staff is kooky and really endearing. I've gone to this place for years (9 and counting) and take my friends and family here every time!

Wish there were more nuances for Google reviews. I'd give this a 4.675 like a freaking gymnastics judge would. The taste of this place is fantastic. The Vegan Chef's Choice was a delight, I'd never had ANYTHING like it in my life, and it was well done. The base of this pizza was so damn good, and when asked about its secrets we got a funny snarky response (which I actually really like. Others might take offense.) The ambiance, weeeeell, it is kinda strange and quirky, which normally I like, but it didn't really seem like it was quirky with purpose. Walking on gravel out back seemed to challenge even the wait staff. The service was OK. Not the best, not the worst. I don't want to knock a place based on so-so service. We were there maybe an hour before closing on a weekend night, and it took a while to get anyone to notice in a mostly empty restaurant. My only advice is if you're going to have a backyard style patio, make sure you check up on your customers a few times to make sure they're cool. One medium pizza will easily fill two people and have plenty for lunch the next day. We tested this and it passed with flying colors. So actually this is about four meals worth, which is a great value. The food even tasted fantastic as leftovers the next day hiking up the MacKenzie. It's places like PRI that really want to make me move back to Eugene after a 20-year absence. A few more tweaks and this place really takes the pie. I'll make this part of my Eugene traditions.

Excellent! I've never had pizza like this before: they've got zany combinations of ingredients that seemed kind of strange at first, but were delicious once we tried them! I love this place and will definitely come back!

Best Vegan pizza I've ever eaten. Also, wonderful service and excellent beers/wines. Found it thru Happy Cow as my wife and I were passing thru Eugene and needed a place for dinner.

I hadn't been here in years, they still have awesome pizza and now gluten free! I had a craving and they filled it:) They have a beautiful indoor and outdoor area, but still quirky with lots of charm. I recognized one of the owners from maybe 10 years ago and she looks the same and is very sweet! It takes a little more time than the average restaurant but I feel that way about most places in Eugene and still love going to them. I will be back sooner this time!

The most creative and tasty vegan and vegetarian pizza I have ever tried. Try the chef's choice or the new number 8. Not for everyone. If your mind is closed and think that all pizza needs meat you probably won't like it. They have a cool outdoor patio which is dog friendly.

Horrible experience---- my family and friends used to go to this restaurant regularly, but after our last experience we won't be back. After waiting nearly an hour for our pizza, we were served the wrong pizza because the server insisted on not writing down our order; the wait staff then quickly removed the incorrect pizza, leaving us and the three toddlers that were with us nothing to eat for yet another hour. The wait staff then continually avoided our table, averting their glance from us. Upon receiving the bill, we then asked to speak to the manager, who very loudly reprimanded the server and rudely interrupted our explanation of the problem by saying that she was going to "shut down this negativity" by offering us two (cold) slices of the pizza that had been incorrectly delivered to our table. One of the worst service experiences I've ever had, completely embarrassed me to take my family to this place--- there are too many Eugene restaurants that care about their customers to support this place, avoid!

Very unfortunate 1st experience. They got my order right, but they messed up twice on my friends orders. I would have been understanding if they had done it once but twice is unacceptable. Then to add insult the owner tried to convince us to stay. I will not be returning to PRI ever again.
