The fare at this pizzeria is a bit off the wall. Unusual combinations (Brussels sprouts?), they did bend to local pressure and put a Carne meat only pizza on the menu. Everything I have had there is good, especially the kale salad (and I hate...More

Authentic Italian pizza made in an authentic Italian oven. The appetizers, salads, and pizza are very good. This isn't pizza hut pizza. (nothing against pizza hut...I like it)

If you're looking for authentic Italian pizza, you've gotta try Il Lazarone! Crispy crust, fresh ingredients, it'll blow you mind!! Go there whenever family is in town, always a great choice, never disappoints!

Il Lazzarone is a traditional Neapolitan style pizzeria specializing in simplicity and beauty. Our dough is made with only four ingredients; yeast, flour, water, and salt. Once the dough has been mixed it is left to naturally leaven and then shaped by hand. The dough at il Lazzarone is some of the rarest and most traditional in the world where very few pizzaiolis still carry on the traditions of old. When the dough is ready we top our pizzas with nothing but the freshest and most pure ingredients money can buy. As the pizza is ready to cook we do not veer from the traditional ways, incorporating a fourth generation hand made wood fired oven imported from Naples. Traditional law states a pizza must cook in less than 90 second to produce the signature leapording of the crust, we typically do it in less than 60. At il Lazzarone we are serious about pizza and the traditions that founded what has become nothing but a glimpse of the truth that once existed. We look forward to serving you. "Come to the Table"
