On a Christmas visit with family. Son eats there all the time, so he took the wife and I. Wow, blew me away with the quality, authenticity, and flavor of their "pies"! Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives nailed it with this one. If your in Glendale don't miss this treasure.

We went for dinner on Saturday night with an event downtown Glendale. Figured there’d be a wait. And there was, initially announced as 60-75 minutes. Being smart and sticking close to the doorway, while others on the list drifted away, our wait time was more like 20 minutes. We’ve been here before and each time have just tried the pizza.... More

Good tasty thin crusted pizzas in the Naples' style. Pizza parlor is dark, dated and not the most inviting. Service is lukewarm in spite of Food TV feature.

This place has amazing pizza, apps & full plates! The menu changes seasonally & when the days allotment is gone, it's GONE! Great wine too! I love this place!

The homemade mozzarella was excellent, but did not have enough flavor to mask the burnt crust. Pizza is the specialty of the house. Might be better the second time? Maybe not? I did try the homemade cheesecake. Yes, you guessed it, another let-down. More cheese than cake, and the crust was lacking, well, crust flavor. Disappointing. For pictures and more... More

A very charming eatery when they originally opened, both service and hospitality changed greatly once they were featured on a food program.

Met some friends for dinner, and was really looking forward to some Italian food. We were disappointed with the bland food, the unfriendly service, and the unwillingness to split a check.

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...
