“Innovative toppings - but lacks in execution!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I took advantage of a Groupon promotion and visited this pizzeria. Thankfully the promotion was equal to a 50% discount. The menu looked promising with many unusual topping combos ( prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, and lettuce greens for example). Unfortunately, the pizza was undersized (6 average slices), crust was overdone, and price was higher than expected ($13). The decor is pleasant enough, and the service acceptable. With at least 75 other pizzerias to choose from in Naples, this one probably won't warrant a return visit.

I am sorry to hear that you are one of the rare negative responses we have received but in explanation of your complaints, we have tried and succeeded in duplicating a pizza as close to Napoli as possible. All of our pizzas are 12" cut into six slices where in Napoli, they are 10 inches and not cut at all. The crust overdone is actually cooked to perfection in a 850 wood burning stove with the leopard spots on the cornice as those in Naploi and tasting identical to our foreign neihbor as well. Our pizza is 9 dollars but when you begin adding toppings such as an expensive imported prosciutto di parma and shaved imported parmigiano reggiano, the cost will go higher, unfortunatly. Again, our mission was not to have a NY pizza, Chicago pizza or local pizza but to duplicate a true pizza napoletana and we understand most pizza places here are not doing so nor is it for everyone. Our pastas are fantastic so maybe we will have the pleasure of you visiting again. Joe

“Yummy Pizza and Gelato!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is a great place! We are locals and have been to Rosedale several times. The food is excellent. This service is friendly and very attentive. The restaurant is very clean with an excellent family oriented ambiance. We enjoy sitting at the bar and watching the chefs cook. This is a very good place and we would recommend it to anyone that would like a great meal in a fun atmosphere.

A special acknowledgement to our server - Jillian - she did a great job helping us! Thank you ... our daughter loved the gelato.

We would like to thank you for such a positive review. Yes, those aromas remind us of Sunday afternoon dinners at the family table with all the family present and enjoying one of mom's or grandma's home cooked meals. Thanks again!!!

“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

This little intimate restaurant always has great food....but the service is touch and go. We've had a love/hate with this place....the menu is wonderful and the food is always great, but on some visits the wait staff seems to NOT care. As we try to visit local venues, we continue to go back.

“Small restaurant with lots of style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Eat here to enjoy great pizza and classic Italian dishes at very reasonable prices. The owners schmooz with the patrons as they assist the friendly and helpful staff. Design your own pizza or choose one of the specialty brick-oven-baked pizzas on the menu. Imported San Marzano tomatoes give their pizza sauce a rich, delicious flavor. The eggplant parmesan and lasagna rate with the best you'll have anywhere! You can't go wrong eating at this neighborhood-style restaurant in north Naples. It's a gem!
