Sacramento Bee

", an hour from Sacramento, that we encountered a pizzeria – complete with a wood-burning oven – producing pies with a thin crust that’s perfectly blistered and charred, and with toppings employed sparingly, all intended to express the simplicity and elegance of the Neapolitan style!"


Sacramento Business Journal

"The quality of this thin-crust, minimal-ingredient pizza is very close to that what you find in Italy: Simple, straightforward and delicious.  It’s best eaten fresh, right out of the oven. We want people to experience the sights, the smells, to have a glass of wine, to experience some of the slow movement stuff. Ideally guests will eat in, but if they have to take it away, that’s OK too, 


Sacramento Foodways

“Their approach is simple. The dough, sauces, dressings, gelato, tiramisu, and croutons are all made in house. The prices are low, with a 12″ priced at $8. The pizza is Neapolitan style cooked in under 2 minutes at 800+ degrees.”
