The name says it all, “Piza ē vino” literally means “pizza and wine”. And, really, what more could you ask for? In a country where “takeaways” still most often means “pizza” (unlike America, for example, where it almost always implies Chinese), you might think another pizza joint is just more of the same.
Happily, Piza ē Vino in Brooklyn perpetuates the singular difference that has made all of their outlets something special. Concentrating rather on a pukka Italian experience of simple dishes made with great ingredients – and made exceptionally well – Pizza ē Vino sells a yummy simplicity that’s hard to beat.
Warm Up to an Italian Winter
Now offering a winter menu, a visit to Pizza ē Vino won’t disappoint. The stylishly outfitted venue makes a literal meal out of base Italian goodness. Concentrating on fresh individual ingredients blended in an authentic Italian style, don’t be fooled by their seemingly simplistic approach.
Rather than building skyscraper pizzas with thick bases, filled crusts or smattering everything with a zillion toppings, this venue’s pizza will give you the real craft of Italian pizza. A few – but amazingly complimentary – tastes on a traditional pizza base will bring you back to what pizza is really all about. A top-tier wheat base that’s crispy and crunchy in places, with judicious application of cheese and tomato, all make for a singularly fresh take on Italian pizza.
With “a love for simple fresh food”, Piza ē Vino boasts authentic methods of traditional Italian cuisine and it shows. This is definitely a case of less being more, not that they’ll skimp on your pizza, oh no. Pizzas here are big enough to satisfy a growing young man of 50, and yet delectable enough to eat in a single sitting, without the guilt, ladies! It just makes sense. With a diversity of pizzas, pasta dishes, burgers and drinks, anyone can find something yummy on the menu.
Hot tip: Try the garlic bread crammed full of their Wild One salad for starters, and roll onto a Calzone Polpette with a glass of vino or two for a sumptuous, dik Pretoria chow! A dessert serving of their Limoncello Tart to top it off should keep you full until around August.
