Great food.

We love this place, food is consistently good, service can sometimes be a little slow but I'm sure it's because they're always busy.

They serve true Neapolitan pizza, cooked in brick ovens. Very busy. They have a wide selection. Friendly staff. Busy, with a line to get in. Delicious!

After all the media attention we expected really good food. What we had was fine, but not worth the drive from central Phoenix. My husband's pizza was no better than some we have had elsewhere; the somewhat soggy crust did not help. His niece had the rigatoni arriabata, and I had the rigatoni al forno. Both were characterized by fresh... More

Been there many times (only when in the area for other reasons). Food is always fresh and delicious. Service is unusual, not the typical bend over backwards to make the dining experince the best ever. Same server every time, a little impatient and not too attentive. Wine list is good. The downtown is nice to walk and this is one... More

The pizza is phenomenal. We go about once a week at work! Staff is super friendly, Italian Stallion is great, and the stuffed shrimp will change your life!!!!

We had heard about the restaurant thru Triple D Tv show. I have to say their review was correct! It is so good. Authentic pizza and a friendly, family atmosphere.. Sandy was our server and she was so nice in helping us pick a wine and telling us what pizzas she liked. We got the Italian Stallion and the Salvatore.... More

Very nice updated place in old Glendale business district. Great pizza. Enthusiastic service. Several items on wine list not available, highly recommended if you like thin, brick oven pizza

i have been missing out in my life by not trying this place sooner. rivals pizza bianco's for fresh hand crafted pizza and much easier to get to and in to. small place which i imagine can get very busy, but had no problems the 3 times we went. this reminds me of the pizza my dad got us back...

A very cool place. A lot of the Cincinnati Reds broadcasting crew like this restaurant during Spring Training. Not a fancy restaurant in old downtown Glendale. The beer is very cold and the food is excellent.

We had lunch here on a recent visit to Glendale. This restaurant was within walking distance of our B & B, The Gaslight Inn. Realizing it was reviewed on Triple D, and based upon local recommendations, I had the Margherita Pizza, which I must say was as fine a thin crust pizza that I have had. It was baked in... More
