    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!

    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.

    If you haven’t had this place you’re missing out on an amazing and authentic experience. Moving away and my heart is staying with APIZZA. Marshall, you are the BEST! Family style and run. You cannot go wrong with any item here. If you enjoy wine, highly recommend Barolo. A gem in downtown Tacoma.

  • 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.

    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+++++++

    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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Great pizza. Maybe the best in Tacoma. Seriously, you should eat here.

    We’d been meaning to try this place out for months and finally did on a Thursday. First group in around 5, then it filled up quickly. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. Most importantly, the pizza was phenomenal. Perfectly cooked thin crust and a really flavorful, delicate red sauce. We frequent brick oven spots with small, artisan options like Bar Rosa or E9, or occasionally Camp Colvos if we want a classic pizza slice meant to be folded. This place felt like a wonderful marriage of those two elements. Get the tiramisu though (made in house). It’s as good as you’d hope for a place that feels this authentic.

  • Great place, it was our first time and I did not know what to expect. We ordered tri cheese for kids and deluxe 43 for me. Both were delicious. Staff was very friendly and professional.

  • 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.
