“Meh...”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We ate here because of the high ranking and good reviews on Trip Advisor, and because of word of mouth. First off, this restaurant is TINY! The seating here is very uncomfortable if you sit at the bar, and the table in the center is designed for large parties or to sit with strangers. The menu is simple, and pretty affordable. Olive oil seemed to be a theme at this establishment, because of it's Italian authenticity. The pizza, however, was not impressive to me whatsoever. The outer crust was too burnt, and the center of the pizza's crust was slimy, and undercooked. It was very thin, and not great. I've had worse, but the pizza was way overrated in my opinion. I also tasted the Wanderlust pale ale beer they had on tap here, which was from a local brewery here in Flagstaff. The beer was actually quite good, and helped make the pizza taste better! We ordered chocolate chip/vanilla bean gelato, which was a pleasant tasting surprise. The flavor changes every day, so be sure to check the chalkboard for the flavor of the day! The staff was amazingly friendly, the ambience was decent, and I loved the brick oven. Overall experience was "ok". I would only recommend this place if you are used to eating at places like California Pizza Kitchen, and other gourmet pizza places. It's not a great place if you are looking for good, thick, hearty, yummy tasting pizza.

“Great pizza”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Such great food! We had several pizzas and the salad all to go, but still amazing!
I walked into the dining room to pick up the food and everyone was so friendly it was a refreshing experience! Next time I will dine there.

“Like eating in Italy”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

We spent the day at Sunset Canyon and Wupatki, and stopped in for beer next door at Mother Road Brewing. After beer, we popped over to the charming and packed Pizzicletta, and got lucky when a large group left shortly. The salad, the pizza, the vanilla/basil gelato, even the beer and wine, all exceeded expectations. Wonderfully thin crust, intensely flavorful toppings. A very cool vibe. Flagstaff is lucky to have such a great little restaurant.

“Surprisingly authentic”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We went there and just found little Italy in Arizona! Such a great surprise: pizzas were really good (baked in a real pizzas owen), the home made gelatto was original and tasty, and the waitress were just so nice and cool!
Pizzicletta is definitely a good place to eat!

The pizza was good, It was not as good as the reviews we had read. The wait was very long so we got to chat with some nice folks. I would not go back for more!
