We were in the mood for pizza and came here after reading the reviews. This Italian eatery is in the historic district of Glendale, AZ. The first thing that caught our eye is that they are certified Neapolitan and their dough is homemade and only use imported fresh ingredients. I had a calzone and it was very tasty. My partner...

Authentic Italian items. Pizza was very good as was the pasta dishes we had. It had been visited by "Diners, Drives and Dives"

A great little restaurant. Great selection of choices on the menu and a nice wine list. You can't go wrong. The smell from when I walked in the door was fantastic.

The service, as always, was warm, personal and efficient. The appetizer of mussels and calamari fra diablo was outstanding - be sure to soak up every drop of the delicious sauce with the house-made bread. We shared a Margarita pizza - loaded with delicate flavor. Nice crust, too. We have become regulars, and for each visit, it's like coming home...... More

Long wait even though we called in to get our name on the list an hour ahead of time. Calamari app was a bit chewy but good. We tried four different pizzas and felt the Italian Stallion was the best. Dough was a bit salty though on all of them. Service was good. Would return.

Finally tried this place in early July. My wife and I shared two pizzas. We had a Margharita and the Italian Stallion. They weren't too bad. The Marg pizza literally had maybe two blobs of mozzerella? The Stallion was way too salty, and didn't taste like the flavors melded well. However the service was great and the overall pizza crust...

This is by far the best pizza in town. All their food is great. I don't eat Italian food out because I like mine and my family's best, but this is great. I don't even like to eat out much, but for this place I will. ( oh I never give anyone 5 stars) nothing is perfect, but they are... More

This place was on the food network and you need to check it out. Great family spot and the pizza is great. So is the pasta. You will not be unhappy dining here. The neighborhood is a little shady but it's all good.

Showed up on a Saturday and got the last table without a wait. The decor is ok but our table had quite a slant. Glad we weren't ordering soup. The waiter was good, he had a Jack Black vibe about him. If you can get him as your waiter, do it. An older lady, who brought our food, simply put... More

The Margherita D.O.C. Pizza was outstanding this time. It could not have been better the crust, sauce and cheese was perfect and this was a delicious pizza. I've been here many times and for me the pizzas do differ at times and that is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. If you look at my two pictures I... More
