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

Unfortunately, I have no problem eating an entire pizza by myself at this restaurant. The Italian Stallion is amazing, as are all others I've tried. Go with a group and share different options. The pizza oven bubbles the dough in just the right way; it's chewy and slightly charred. It's never left on the plate! The pesto dish is the... More

This family owned and run pizza kitchen is a treasure tucked away in downtown Glendale. Its worth the trip and the wait for authentic Neapolitan pizza. Our family makes the trip regularly and has never been disappointed. Be sure to get one of their family sized salads to complement your pizza!.

If you crave a slice or 3...this is the place you want to go. Sure you can wait in line for 40-60 minutes for that other place but I'm telling you this place will blow your mind. Tastebud heaven with every bite. I want to eat here every week...I want to try every dish...I want to let my tongue bathe... More

The place isn't much to look at, but the perfect pizza Margherita cooked using the certified Neapolitan method, is outstanding. My mouth is watering just thinking about eating another one! Try it, and you'll be hooked!

Saw this place on the Food Channel and decided to give it a whirl. After all, as a native New Yorker, I know good pizza. And.. And… unfortunately I have to say it, Phoenix/Scottsdale does not have good pizza. So off I go to discover what this pizza is all about. Let's start by saying that they have an imported... More

Food was 5 star-gave it only 4 cuz joint is tiny, so are tables, chairs hard on tush. Every party around us ordered the pizza. Will be back soon to try wood-oven fired, certified-neopolitan pies:-)

Our first visit was for lunch. We arrived around 12:30 on a weekday. This is a relatively small restaurant, large dark tile flooring, dark solid wood tables, Italian pictures on the wall. We love Neapoliltan pizza and seek 'true' Neapolitan cuisine around the country. We ordered the House Salad (split it for two). It contained red leaf lettuce, shaved Parmesan,... More
