This pizza place isn't famous - yet. If you're looking for an elegant ambience to impress your friends, this might not be the place. But if you just want a unique and delicious pizza -- yes, this is the place. My wife and I had something new -- the gyros pizza (yes, like the Greek meat) with a white sauce (owner's recommendation), and we were amazed. This is by far the best pizza I've had in a long time (and I probably eat a lot more pizza than I should). The crust was perfect; the sauce well balanced, the toppings were fresh and very generous. This pizza isn't baked on a conveyor belt, like so many; it's done right, in a brick oven, with a private recipe. To top it off (no pun intended), the prices are better than you'd pay for a comparative pizza (if you could find one) at a place like Round Table. And if you don't feel like pizza, you can try their unique burgers, their fried chicken, or an assortment of other foods, many with a Mediterranean flavor added. The service is fast and friendly. If you're looking for a great pizza -- and some you can't get elsewhere -- give Sun Pizza a try; you'll be happy!
Luigi's has been around for some 45 years. I have been going there for about 25 years. After living in NYC for 4 years in the 60's, one thing I learned is that NYC pizza is the real deal! I frequented Queens Pizzaria in Brooklyn Heights, which was NY Times number 1 rated pizza in NY...LOVED IT! They made a pastrami pizza to die for! WOW! Coming back to the Sacramento area in late 69, after a few years I resigned myself to the obvious...No pizza in Sacramento could touch a TRUE NYC PIZZA! I was wrong!!! Luigi's compares better than ANY pizza I had in NY! A friend of mine spent several weeks in NYC as well as Brooklyn a couple of years ago...He tried the best he could find.........He said NONE compared to Luigi's PERIOD!!! NOW we have Luigi's by the Slice downtown to marvel you with more of the best! Kudo's to Chelso for his world class PIZZA! My favorite is his unsurpassed PASTRAMI pizza........OH SO GOOD!!! TRY IT........YOU'LL LOVE IT!
I love everything about this place. They have old school wood paneling and bench seating around long tables for big groups. Great variety of beer on tap and a TV tuned in to sports so you can have "family time" but still keep an eye on the game. They even have a little play structure in the corner for the little ones to play on while you eat amazing pizza and sip ice cold beer. This place has a nice comfortable feel with great food. They have a spongy but crisp crust, zesty sauce, real cheese and high quality toppings. It is one of the few pizza places that still uses real toppings... real bell pepper, real mushrooms, etc. Wenelli's is more expensive than the typical chain... but it is worth it. They serve real food and have an army full of high school kids working to crank out pizza after pizza.
