Tonight I felt discriminated by the owner of this place: Azhar Began owner of Classic Italian Pizza, Tempe Arizona. He did not want to serve us because we were a large party of 11 including some kids. When I arrived the server told me that it will be 1 hour of wait and I did agree, 45 min later, Ahzar... More

We had been at this restaurant before it changed locations and absolutely loved it. Once we realized it had reopened, we were excited to give it a try. We opted for happy hour. They have an amazing happy hour between 4 and 5. $3 off glasses of wine, $5 off a pizza, $4 appetizers...it sounds wonderful. We tried the macaroni... More

A better than average spot, everything is good quality, nice wine selections, great food choices, not a mass production place. Been there several times and we keep coming back. Very good euro feeling.

One of the best pizza places in Tempe. Nice thin crust, good sauce, and nice combos. They have a limited wine selection, but they have good wine specials.

This is a nice place for a casual lunch. They have a varied menu... salads, panini, and pizza. Our service was attentive and friendly. The lunch pizza won't fill you up for hours on end. It's light, and tasty, and that's what I'm looking for.

nice place. Pizza was okay. Seems like it might be better for a late night, or happy hour venue than a place for a nice dinner. The crust, while a little thin for my taste, was very good. The wine list was average. This is a place that I may visit again, but it is not someplace to go out... More

I had an ice tea that was good, an arugula salad and a French onion soup. The concept (recipe) of the salad was good: fresh arugula with white almonds and shaved pecorino with an extra virgin olive oil-lemon dressing for $ 9.00. The salad came in a small plate topped with arugula. The pecorino quantity on the salad was about... More

Have visited a couple of times at their new location, in the same strip mall with Changing Hands Bookstore and Trader Joes' - and have to admit it has a different feel. The previous location was dark and hard to find, and this one is in the middle of a busy area and brightly list. It now seems more like... More
