Tiny spot, easy to overlook, but don't if you are looking for authentic thin crusted Italian pizza. I've eaten lots of pizza in Italy and this is very close to what you would eat there. Reasonably priced. It is hot inside, so eat outside if you are able. In my book this is much more authentic and better tasting that... More

Honestly, that pizza was absolutely delicious. I kept eating more and more! But overall the place is very small and modest-looking.

We stopped there for a glass off wine while waiting to see Beach Blanket Babylon. Our wine selection was outstanding, but... I asked if they had desert - had Grandma's Cake. It's a lemon type pie/cake. I don't like lemon pie/cake for the most part - but this melted in my mouth. It was rich, so the serving size was... More

This was the perfect place for my family to eat in Little Italy. Friendly, authentic, not too expensive, and delicious! My mouth is watering just thinking about the pizzas that my husband and I ordered and the pasta that my kids ordered. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It is small-- so you may have to wait for a table--... More

Thin crust, amazing sauce, bar none the best Margarita Pizza I have ever had. 4 of us shared two of them at the end of the Taste walking tour. We would have stayed and bought more but we had been walking and tasting for 3 hours. We will go back!!

Very authentic Italian food. Worth the wait; patience is the key at this restaurant. The food will make you forget about the wait. The couple running this restaurant is very nice and very hard working. Definitely somewhere to visit on your trip!

we have been coming here for years, its a little Italian place right in front of the park in little Italy, next to rogue brewery, the owner romina is just a doll, so welcoming, as if you were eating at her house, they make everything homemade, the meat sauce is to die for, and the flat bread pizzas are so...

When it comes to burgers for me it's hard to beat Super Duper Burgers on Market St. And for thin crust pizza it's hard to top Cinecitta's. Can't believe I haven't reviewed this place before having been there on a couple of previous visits to The City with different tours groups. This is the thinnest of thin crust pizzas I've... More

If you are a fan of thin crust pizza this is the place for you. The crust was the thinnest I ever had and the toppings were excellent. Light on the sauce and cheese allowing the taste of the crust etc to come through. Will definitely go there agsin
