“True Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

As an Italian American I have been looking for great pizza in the Monterey area for a long time now. I have to say that I have finally found it! Their pizza is thin and perfectly executed! Like the kind you'd find in Naples. Try the margarita pizza. It has fresh basil and nice thin slices of tomato. The cafe is so cute inside and the lady at the front counter was very nice. I will try the homemade gelato next time!

“Best thin crust pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Finally a local place with a fantastic thin crust pizza. Try the Zingara pizza my fav. Also can't beat the gelato.

“I wouldn't eat here again.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

My daughters name is Ariana so I took her to lunch here one day. We split the pork loin sandwich, the butternut squash soup and a salad. The sandwich was good but the rest of the meal was so so. The mixed greens were wilted and the soup was pretty flavorless. The lady working the counter I think she was the owner was not very friendly and barely said 2 words to me. The chef was nice and brought our food out fast. It was kinda pricey for the quality we were served.
