East Side Cafe in Pittsfield MA??

As seen on Slice:

Sounds like there's a real coal-fired pizza at East Side Cafe in Pittsfield, MA. Searchign yields some information, but I'm curious to hear some local knowledge. How is it, what style, any other notable pizzerias it;s comparable to?

  1. I haven't been in a while, but the general populace considers it to be among the best. They only offer it certain days of the week...thin crust and a friend of mine who worked there years ago told me they use mostly meunster cheese, with a little mozz. For a while they only made pizza on Thursdays, which was payday for GE back when there WAS a GE in Pittsfield.

    1. Pizza night, thurs, fri, sat.... the pizza isn't as good as it used to be...... the crust is like a saltine and the sauce is like tomato soup

        I have to agree. They used to have some of the best pizza in the city, but for whatever reason, the quality has dropped off in the past couple of years.
