Located in the heart of Johnson, VT, Downtown Pizzeria & Pub is a true mom and pop establishment with great history, and an even brighter future. Due to the fun and charming ambiance inside, customers might be surprised to find out that the early 1840s building housed a hardware store for over 50 years.
Owners Chris and Allison opened Downtown Pizzeria & Pub in February of 2014. Since then, the restaurant has become something of a pizza oasis, and pub landmark for locals, and travelers alike. With some of Vermont’s best ski resorts nearby, visitors happily travel the quick drive to Johnson that is well worth each mile. The pizza is gourmet, entrees delicious, and the fried brownie sundae is an absolute must have when you visit.
Both owners grew up in Italian households, and most of the dishes served at Downtown Pizzeria & Pub are prized family recipes. With 25+ years experience in the restaurant business, Chris and Alison love their jobs, and it shows. They value quality food, great service, and enjoy interacting with customers when they drop by for artisan pizza and a pint.
More than just a pizza joint… Downtown Pizzeria & Pub is also a popular venue for local entertainment. With music every Tuesday in July and August, the summers are always full of excitement. Every first Wednesday of the month, Vermont legend Seth Yacavone plays a live album cover series that is sure to amaze. If you are a bluegrass fan, look no further. Every last Tuesday of the month live bluegrass bands pick, pluck, and jam. And for those who seek the lime light, come join the fun at Karaoke, every Saturday night.
