i am a resident of north phoenix and i've come to expect bad service at Slice of sicily, but have been kinda putting up with it in exchange for eating their delicious hand-tossed pizza. Another reviewer in sept 06 failed to mention that the pizza there, when ordered with extra sauce, is simply to die for. that being said, i've been taking crap from the unpleasant owner since they opened in 1999. i found the rest of the menu to range from tasty to quite boring. the eggplant parma is fantastic, and even better stuffed. the marsala is full of fresh cooked mushrooms while suprisingly sweet and rich-the result of using only quality marsala wine, no doubt. the baked ziti is terriffic, and the alfredo sauce is peppery and zesty, slow cooked from scratch, and if you're a lasagna fan, and partial to your mom's, thiers will take you back to the old days... delicious!!!
the appitizer menu lacks any kind of flair, but the wings are great and quite meaty, drenched best in the medium sauce. cannoli for desert is not bad, nice texture shell (very flaky and sweet) a little bland in the matter of filling.
However the service is, by far, the worst around. the owner is indeed a dreadful person, and has a certain aire of dsidain about her, towards her customers. don't expect any pleasantry upon arrival. my advice is to order take-out (and send someone else to pick it up) or delivery... after all, even an ex-con, biker, unshaven slob of a delivery driver (worst case scenario can be inserted in default) would be a more pleasant intra-personal experience than dealing with the owner of that joint.

This was my second time returning to this area. I had previously eaten at this restaurant about 8 months before when I was in Phoenix. The first time service was okay, nothing to complain about. The food was acceptable.However, on my second return I experienced terrible service.This time the owner took my order. Most of the time she was griping to other customers about the high price of supplies for the restaurant (who cares) toilet becoming clogged repeatedly (eww). She hardly, if ever came around. When she did it was to plop my food down in front of me. Whenever I needed something she was either chatting with customers(who also did not look interested in what she had to say) or was in the kitchen. It was not busy in the restaurant. She also purposely ignored me when I tried to call her over for a refill. For this poor service I am never going to frequent this restaurant again. Food is acceptable, however salad dressing is terrible. It's supposedly their house dressing, but it's really watered down ranch dressing. At least that's what it tastes and looks like. Do yourself a favor and go to NYPD Pizza or Buca Di Beppo.
