“Good Pizza but no Gluten free option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The Rocket was my favourite but the Margarita, not so much. The crust is the chewy but light crust which I prefer but it would be nice to have a gluten free option too.

Unfortunately, gluten-free is not possible in our wood burning oven. The temperature is too high for gluten-fee doughs to cook properly.

“Confused by all the "excellents"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Went a couple nights ago with family and friends, expecting great pizza in a casual pizza joint. You order at the counter and they bring the pizza to your table. Menu looked good and the people behind the counter were really nice, not indifferent like the usual!
BUT the pizza was just ok. I like a soft chewy crust and this was so soft that when you pick up your slice, all the toppings just slide right off. The taste (we got 3 different pizzas) was nothing to write home about. We all agreed - it wasn't bad, it just wasn't something that we'd return back for.
Don't remember anything special about the tomato sauce, the sausage, the ricotta, the buffalo mozzarella or the crust. We also got 2 salads - a caesar and a house salad. Both were good values (you can order a small for about $3-4 and a large, which feeds 2-3 for about $7). Don't know if they sell wine or it's BYOB, but we saw several tables with beer and bottles of wine.

“If you're looking for real Italian pizza, this is the place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We love this pizza. It's crispy outside and soft inside, as they are made in Napoli. Great ingredients, genuine tomato sauce and mozzarella. Authentic Italian combinations available like bresaola and rucola and capricciosa. Staff is very friendly and courteous. We're so lucky this place is here in Rockville!

“Best neopolitan style pizza in the DC metropolitan area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Wonderful, wonderful pizza. Compared to other neopolitan places in the area, this place feels like each pie has its own love and attention oozing in the sauces and ingredients. Everything tastes fresh, true to its roots and the best part of this establishment is that you'll get a handshake from the owner every time and establish a rare owner-customer relationship that is so hard to come by these days.

“Outstanding Pies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Having been a chef for 25+ years and having the chance to toss a few dough in that only asserts my opinion of Pizza CS. Their sauce is simple, bright and flavorful. The crust is perfectly thin and crispy with just the right amount of chewiness. The topping ingredients are of the caliber that you would buy for yourself for a quality homemade pie. The service is friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere is warm, clean and comfortable. The first time you try their pizza won't be your last, by far the best pizza we have had in Montgomery County.
