My BF and I stopped in to get a slice of pizza, and ended up getting a whole pizza that was perfectly delicious. We were served bread and a garlic in olive oil/olive oil/pesto in olive oil dip that was out of this world (we asked for thirds... ha!!). While we searched to the menu to see what we wanted, we were waited on by the bar staff (as we were sitting at the bar) and they made us two fantastic cocktails (a two tony's for my bf, and a house vodka martini for me). After much deliberation (and our tummy's grumbling) we decided to go with something simple. It was the Margherita pizza ($18): Thin crust with a fluffy end, the perfect red sauce AND CHUNKS OF MOZARELLA AND WHOLE PIECES OF BASIL. We scarfed it up before we could take a picture. It was sooooo delicious!! We will DEFINITELY be returning. The whole experience was the best ever (and I am one very hard to please!)
Thin crust, just enough sauce and great melty cheese. This is the pizza you get used to on the East Coast. I am not a fan of plain cheese pizza but at Amicis it takes so good. We are able to eat a whole large between two people. Its that good. Its pricey for pizza so we don't eat it often but every time we leave there we are satisfied (therefore 4 stars). We usually also order the garden salad for the family. Simple - lettuce, bell pepper, onion - and a dressing. They have pretty good house wines also. Though you cant beat Pizza and soda (the soda is served in the old style soda glasses). Other pizzas that are great are the new haven clam and sausage and mushrooms. their wood burning oven makes the crust real crisp and tasty!!
If you haven't had a slice from Marcellos, you haven't really lived yet. From the moment you walk into this quaint yet qwerky establishment you'll know you have found something special. Maybe its the fact that this little jewel is located in the free thinking castro that gives it the mystique. Or maybe just maybe its the perfect crust with just the right amount of fresh toppings, you decide. For me its the ability to walk in at just about any time of the day and late into the evening and find something new and exciting in there choices. So if you want to try some of the best this city has to offer look no further!!!!! You have found what your taste has been looking for.
