Genuine Neapolitan pizza in Houston. Lovely staff, quick service, outstanding pizza - all pizza should be this way. Minor complaint about Caprese salad, it should've had more basil, we got one leaf, but when we asked for more the provided.

Went for lunch with husband today. The house salad was above average. Good dressing and quality greens. We shared a pizza. It was delicious. You can really taste the brink oven. Definitely will go again.

This is the real deal - they imported the oven from Naples and went there to train...thin crust at its best! Pizzas made to order and ready in 90 seconds, the fire burns that hot! Wonderful flavor in their tomato sauce. You can delight in the perfect simplicity of the Margherita, bask in the bold flavors of the Fino with... More

Brick oven, OO flour, San Marzano tomatoes, fresh Basil and Fior di Latte Mozzarella cheese. I think I'm in Italy. This is an excellent Pizza place, not fancy but great pizza. I give it 5 yums.

This pizza place is located in a regular suburban mall, nothing fancy in the store front and plenty of parking. Once inside, you cannot miss their Italian built brick oven which is burning at 900 degrees and can bake a pie in 90 seconds. The seating is furnished with simple tables and we ordered our pies through a queue. The... More

The pizza (if you like this style), was good, quick and fresh, however, expensive (24 usd for one 12" pizza, one 16.9 oz bottle of water and one small Cesar salad) which was bad (4 croutons were stale) and it's all self service. The decor is average (what you'd expect for a strip mall cafe). Despite the Wine cork picture... More

This is the best real Italian pizza place that we know West of Houston. They use excellent ingredients. You can bring your own beverage. Since it is the real deal, it is not cheap.

When I'm going for pizza at 11 in the morning on a Saturday, I'm not looking for ambiance, but I can agree with the user who says there isn't much here. But that aside, the pizza is delicious. We ordered the potato and truffle oil and the polpette (tomatoes, meat, ricotta and mozzarella). Both were delicious, the crust thin, but... More

The original strip mall location totally lacks atmosphere but is reasonably comfortable as a quick eat pizzeria. It is a BYOB restaurant but the lack of ambiance makes one wonder who would want to linger over a bottle of wine! Incidentally, a corkage fee of $3 has been introduced - must be to cover the cost of providing glasses and... More

Great casual dining with great pizza. Owners are great and are always very accommodating and friendly. I can't wait to dine at their new location in Montrose.
