Our Story

What We’re About…

“It’s the pizza, stupid. And maybe the beer. Everything else can go fly.”

Or sometimes…

“Have a good time doing it, just wash your hands before and, especially, after.”

Note: If your business needs a new mission statement, Shakespeare’s Pizza has begun accepting offers in the mid to low-high-mid five figures (€) to help you.



We’ve been around since 1973.
That’s a lot of pizzas and a lot of stuffs happenin throughout the years, below is just a few!
