“Best food around!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

I'm from New York and live in Arlington tn for almost 10 years. Me and my family have tried many of the supposened "Italian" restaurants/pizza places around. We heard about Caio baby from our extended family that are also from New York and they informed us that they finally found a restaurant even better than New York. They were not exaggerating. It's that great. Everything you eat is fresh and homemade. Their sauce is out of this world. And they make homemade pizza right in front of you that cooks in 90 secs in a special dome oven. We cannot wait to go back. The family who owns this place are friendly, fun and now will be friends of ours for life!!!! You will not be sorry.

“Closest to Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

Kids. This is the closest to Italy yet. I spent three years in Italy and have become quite a connoisseur...really. If you're looking for Americanized, i.e, not real Italian pizza - then this won't be your place. No stuffed crust, no pasta bowl bread cholesterol busting dishes, no pile of unchewable mozzarella cheese, no thick, indescribable sauce with who knows what seasoning. Hint: Italians use cheeses other than mozzarella...
Here's the key, this guy has a VPN certification. Google it. It doesn't get any more pure. He uses wood. Simply put, this is real Italian, and more importantly; pizza Napoli. The sauce is tomato. Plain, simple, gorgeous red tomato, like tomatoes should taste. The pizza margarita is done right. Not slathered with mozzarella...just enough spread around like it's supposed to be in chunks. Real basil, then they do what few American pizza joints do, they drizzle it with Olive oil.
One complaint, we eaters of real pizza Napoli do not eat pizza with our hands. It shouldn't be cut.
Another clue to their authenticity? There's only one size. Which means it's meant to be eaten by YOU ALONE, with a knife and fork.

“Worst Place Ever!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

Not happy, you have to stand there for 20 mins just to figure out what they serve. When your order comes it's wrong and that man is the most annoying owner and disgustingly arrogant. I suggest he take his arrogance back where he came from. Your pizza is not that good! Ugh!

“Good salad. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in and had a meatball sandwich and salad for $8.50. Meatballs were just ok, but side salad was fresh and delicious. I saw a few pizza come out and wish I had that instead. They did look really good.
