“Wow yummy”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Had the spinach salad and it was so good. Also had the create your own pizza which was just excellent. We had a local recommend it and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good pizza. They cook to order and they are pretty quick considering that. They have a pizza place atmosphere (casual) and we really had a great lunch.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This is a must stop if you love pizza. Wood fired pizza & great salads. Order a 50 West draft made right across the road- it's terrific! Reasonable prices too- www.pizzelipizza.com

“Not Just Another Pizza Place”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I have been told that pizza is the All American food, the most popular single meal in the US. I have no doubt that this is true. Yet there a great deal of variation in pizzas: thick crust, thin crust, large diameter, small diameter, conventional toppings, less usual toppings, crisp crust, soft crust, lots of oil, little oil, tomato sauce, no tomato sauce. The list goes on and on. Cincinnati is a pretty conventional town: most of the pizzas served here are large circular ones with a soft crust, little oil and conventional toppings (tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni or sausage and mushrooms). Pizzelli is a different pizza concept: a family style pizzeria that serves thin crust, small diameter custom ordered pizzas.

Here is how it works: you order your custom pizza at the front of the restaurant and pick from a large selection of toppings. These are neopolitan pizzas: small diameter coated with a moderate amount of oil and baked at a high temperature. The pizza is fired in a nearby brick oven and then delivered to your table. Salads and drinks are also available. Dining is family style, with many long picnic type tables in a large room. The pizzas are good, the atmosphere friendly and the price is right. All in all, Pizzelii is a worthwhile experience.

“Excellent inexpensive and quick”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Great concept. You order the pizzas at the front and then sit down or pick up in just a few minutes. They've got this mostly right. Sauce is perfect. Toppings excellent. Crust is very good but not perfect (for east coast or Neapolitan style). It's just a bit soft, not bubbly or crispy enough. Prices ate terrific -- start at $6. Much needed.
