  • Best pizza this side of New York. Most authentic pizza in Washington. Outstanding crunchy thin crust and superior ingredients all around. Tried the Spicy Tony at lunch and am back to try more the same night for dinner! It’s that good folks.

    I love pizza so my wife found this place to take me for my birthday, it was outstanding! We liked it so much we took our daughter's family and they loved it as well, including two somewhat particular young granddaughters 😉 We tried a number of their pizzas and all were excellent. My favorite is the Amante di Carne but all the pizzas were fantastic.

  • Hands down best pizza to eat in Tacoma!

    Had a draft while I waited for my togo pizza. Service and staff were very friendly. Owner gave me some fresh red pepper topping in case I wanted it. Ordered the Spicy Tony, and it was as advertised. Spicy but able to taste all the fresh toppings. This was one place, in my opinion, that they used a good amount of sauce on a thin pizza. Every bite had that right amount of sauce that complimented the crust. Can't wait to go back.

    Had the Spicy Tony pizza. It was really good. No red pepper flakes needed. The crust is fairly thin with a little chew. Haven't had a restaurant with a thin crust that was at least a little crispy. In this case, it made this pizza different in a good way. There was a little crunch on the ends, but the ingredients are what carried the pizza. The sausage was sliced rounds from a link, but again we're high quality with a nice flavor profile and the sauce was extremely well balanced with enough Italian seasoning in it to cut through any paste flavor you might find at some other local places like Bar Rosa. It also wasn't acidic. Extra points right there for me. I mention these details because I believe that it will help better to figure out if you're wanting to try one of the many, many new pizza places in town. Service was attentive enough for my needs as they checked in a couple of times. The drinks were ok at least on the mixed drink. The beers weren't bad. A large pizza for around 40 after tax was easily shareable for two or three people and the chew in the crust helped keep it filling while it was still thin. I'll definitely be back based on the light sauce profile and toppings.

  • Marshal the owner is an incredible guy, wonderful establishment by heart. The bread dough lady is the 'prime example of flour' she was just covered in it😂 The pizza was delicious, crust was thin and the spinach with cheese made you want to eat with your eyes closed. When you're in the area stop by and show some gratitude!

    Lamont Avatar Lamont

    Thin on crust, heavy on toppings. The PNW isn't known for pizza, but APIZZA steps up to the challenge.

    Literally a little piece of Italy right here in T-town, from pizza to gelato they have it all. Looking for an espresso or Italian liquors, maybe both ¯_(ツ)_/¯ no problem. Highly recommend stopping in. The open kitchen is always a plus and their pizza is jumping to be one of the best in town, traditional and great ingredients.

  • Pizza was as good as I was hoping it would be. I like my pizza a little on the floppy side and this pizza was just that. Great flavor in the sauce and the cheese was just right. Give this place a shot. It’s worth the price.

    I ordered the Vesuvius from Uber, this pizza is absolutely delicious. I'm very excited to come down there and try it in the restaurant. There are a lot of pizza places in town but this is really good.

  • One bite, everyone knows the rules. Great crunch to that crust and almost no flop! Cheese on the classic 3 cheese looked phenomenal, flavor was great, and very nice char! Easy 8.2, monster score for Tacoma Washington!

    Best slice of pizza I have had in a long time, thank you for putting love into your food.

    We ordered the Deluxe #13 and the Classic Margherita pizzas and highly recommend. The quality ingredients and love that was put into these pizzas by exceptional chefs. By far the best wood fired pizza that we have eaten. The customer service was amazing as well. Great atmosphere for dine-in and take-out. There are daily slices available as well.

  • My husband was walking by this pizza spot going to another place. As we were walking by we noticed owner or employee giving a slice of pizza to a homeless man going through the trash. She said here it’s cold outside! We took a mental note to come back and support this establishment, just so happened we had to wait for our seats for 25 mins. So we went back and had a slice of the best pizza I have had thus far. I would definitely recommend this place. We were there for only a little bit but their service was still excellent! Thank you your delicious pizza and giving to the community!

    Got a slice after work and was a good price, super gooey delicious 3 cheese slice. Staff was very friendly, was waiting for someone and made me feel not so lonely 😂

  • Stopped by after seeing a show on a Saturday night. Even though it was 10 minutes to closing they made us a pizza to go. The pizza was so good we would definitely go back.

    Jessi H Avatar Jessi H

    This pizza is the real deal! Fresh quality ingredients, so flavorful and cooked to perfection in a clean wood fired oven. The staff are all so friendly. It's rare that we have found such a great overall experience as here; with pizza that tastes authentic to Italy. A+++++++
