Best REAL Pizza in the US

True wood fired neapolitan style pizza, perfectly executed, great value for money and friendly staff. Love the fact that you can have a beer or wine with your pizza.

CS is in a strip mall and readily accessible by car, bus, bike and metro (Twinbrook). The storefront and setup is very simple, bordering on bare. The staff is mostly young men who are industriously making pies and managing the store, not cheerful, but pleasant and helpful. Families, kids, and some couples seem to be the prevailing customer base in-store.... More

If you love Napolitano style pizza, you will not be disappointed!! I love all styles of pizza, NY, Chicago, etc. This rates up there with some of the best I've had. I've been in Italy and this is how they do it! It's super fresh with a light, thin, delicate crust that lets you taste the ingredients. The gentlemen who... More

We thought our pizzas (at $13 each) were quite good: the buffalo cheese on the CS Margherita was particularly buttery, the Napoli had just the right amount of salty but tasty anchovies, and the Sopresatta was a savory treat. The oven's high temperature produces a nicely charred and chewy crust, and the tomato sauce is high-quality. There are five salads:... More

I decided to try this joint out, based on good reviews here. What a Mistake.! First and foremost, the place was not very clean. Secondly, I felt that the pizza quality was pretty bad. The price they have the balls to charge for a pizza, was terrible. This was a pizza that should have cost five dollars at the most.... More

We went last night and I'm craving it today. Where do I even begin! We ordered the Sopressata, the CS Sausage, and the Margherita. All amazing! the sauce taste so so good the tomatoes are just right .. just enough to complement the imported buffalo cheese and the crust is to die for!!! All fresh and amazing ingredients. The Sopressata... More

This place is what it is -- a somewhat-hidden, no-frills pizza place. But the pizza is fantastic! Don't expect fancy seating or ambiance. But do expect great quality ingredients, friendly staff, and a small beer and wine list. Been back twice and enjoy the fast, high quality brick oven pies.

Based on the good reviews, my wife and I went to CS for lunch a couple weeks ago. The place was pretty empty around 12:30pm. We ordered two pizzas and sodas. For about $10-12 each, their pizza is actually smaller than a couple regular slices from most other places. Thin and small in size and not much toppings either. The... More

Worth the wait on a Friday night. This pizza is very special and reminds me of our visit to Italy. Amazing. Cute seating area and plenty of parking!

This pizza joint makes neapolitan style pizza (look that term up) which is a very thin crusted pizza made only according to certain ingredient standards. My spouse and I had margarita pizzas there today and we decided it was far and away the best pizza we have had in a LONG time! The thin crusted pizza is fire blasted in... More
