    If you love pizza, then you must visit this pizzeria! Very tasty, friendly staff. no reserve tables, so you need to come on earlier.especially like the brie pizza and you should try Duck Confit pizza

    The pizzas are 12" - good for 1 if you're hungry or 2 people if you're planning on having an appetizer and a dessert as well. Oh! And they're delicious! Our favorite was the mushroom and Gorgonzola!

    This really is the best pizza in the city. Expect to wait anytime after 8pm. Just grab a drink somewhere else on the street until they let you know your table is ready, its worth the wait.

    It seems so simple but the dessert you must have is housemade gelato with espresso poured over it. It will change the way you think about ice cream.

    Wait times here are ridiculous. The food is good, but not worth the wait. No reservations allowed, so if you're a big group expect to wait 3.5+hrs to even get a seat.

    Probably the best pizza this side of the Atlantic Ocean. The pizza here is phenomenal, and very close to what one expects from a Naples styled pizza.

    The pizzas are cooked in the woodburing oven for 90 secs so the dough can seem a bit under cooked. Ask for it well done if you want the thin crust shell a little crispier.
