“BEST PIZZA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I visited Italy this last summer and Pizza e Vino makes Pizza how it is suppose to be made. They make it the Italian way , great Olive Oil , light thin crest too perfection , and the appropriate size of toppings. Nothing like the awful American type of pizza the masses eat. This is truly a slice of Italy. ( they do not slice the pizza)The wine list is good! Many different types you have never heard of to choose from. All Good! A great local place.

“Friendly and authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Extremely authentic food that is true to Naples. Friendly staff, the restaurant is small and quaint with a great ambiance. Great for small groups or date night.

“More cheese and sauce.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

At best, Pizza was average. Not New York style but is lacking is cheese. Too much dough was exposed without sauce or cheese. I am not requesting a pizza dripping with cheese but enough so that we can taste it. Also my take out was not cut into slices and since we did not have a pizza cutter at home we had to use a knife and a breadboard - very difficult.

“Best true Italian Pizza in O.C”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

looking for the true real deal pizza from Italy...look no further..wood fired , hand crafted made to order amazing pizza. Look no further, and I highly recommend the Tiffany Garlic pizza which is a white pizza with mozzarella, garlic, olive oil and the best thin crust in the area! This and a nice glass of wine and or some creative flavored soda makes the place a must!
it is true that the service can be very poor here. But who wants to eat at an empty restaurant anyway. The food is outstanding so it makes up for the ocassional poor service of the wait staff.
they get that part right they really have something going, and not be overlooked anywhere in Orange County.follow it up with a nice mile walk around a beautiful lake, that is like resort living.
