“Very good THIN crust pizza with quality toppings”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

I think the most important thing is knowing what you're going to get before you walk in. This isn't going to be a Pizza Hut pie with thick crust and greasy toppings. The pies are small, thin, and lightly covered with toppings. However, the crust is excellent; nice and chewy. The toppings are tasty and clearly a better quality than your local pizza chain.

Wife and I enjoyed 2 pizzas, one with tomato sauce, and one without. Both had great flavor and a slightly charred crust. Highly recommend if you're in the area.

For dessert, we ordered the chocolate pudding which clearly had come straight from the refrigerator and was served so cold it resembled more of a pot de creme than a pudding. Good flavor, but not what we expected.

Very friendly and timely service.

“An Honest business & great pie”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Four for dinner and wine. The pizza as noted by others is perfect. Truly outstanding. This is Italian!! Not a fake American pizza. Thin chewy crust from a wood oven. The owner and our waiter enhanced the evening.
I paid my bill by credit card and after writing in a tip, I made a mistake and entered a total $20 larger than intended. Somehow $47.50 became $67.50. Masullo took no chances and did not charge me either the $67.50 or $47.50 or the tip. They let it go with just the original food/drink total. Now that is HONEST people. On my next visit, I will double my tip!!

“A Taste of Napoli in the Heart of Sacramento”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

This small neigborhood casual dining establishment features lovingly crafted Napoli inspired pizza, salads, appetizers, beer and wine. The owner/chef is a fanatic about his pizza dough. Charming waitstaff make the experience feel like being with old friends.

“"Just like Italy...”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

The Sacramento Bee food critic said that Masullo Pizza approaches perfection with regards to pizzas -- so a Friday night date with my wife, who loves Italian food, was quickly arranged. After eating her Margarita pizza (tomato sauce, mozzarella, and basil on a very thin crust for $11), she smiled and said, "Just like in Italy..." This small restaurant is not a fancy, faux-Italian restaurant. Masullo is a pizza joint which seats about 30 people, plain and simple. With outstanding pizza... Something that makes this pizza so superior to other pizzas is the crust -- a thin crust that bakes chewy rather than dry and brittle. Ingredients are all fresh. Service from Nate was outstanding, even though the staff was in danger of being crushed with a large crowd who, like us, also read today's restaurant review in the Sacramento Bee. Would we return? In a heart beat... "Traveling the world one meal at a time..."

“Fantastic”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

This place is traditional Naples style pizza. The wait staff is friendly and observant. We ordered the antipasto platter, mixed green salad along with three pizzas; Margherita, Jacqueline, 4 Quarters, three desserts; lemon posset, chocolate pudding and wild cherry ice cream. We enjoyed every dish. We will definitely be back.
