This place is tucked back off of the main 355 and I would never have seen it if someone hadn't told me to check it out. Very cool mellow place that is great if you are looking for a good pizza pie.

Very simple decor and hard to find off the main road. But really good pizza! Free ice cream on Thursday eve. Try the Moto pizza with Brussels sprouts leaves. Good value and fast service.

Hands down the best Caesar salad I have ever had. Awesome Neapolitan pizza. If you don't like Neapolitan pizza, don't complain when that's what you get. Several beers on tap, and a few in bottles/cans, with many great local selections (such as the delicious 7 Locks RyePA). Friendly staff; co-owner is almost always there and makes a point of remembering... More

The pizza is excellent! Wish the atmosphere was better. 5 stars because the food makes up for the so-so location. Try the Capri. So good!

Wow, I am glad I found this place. The pizza is delicious, perfectly cooked in a wood burning oven with fresh ingredients. If you like Neapolitan style pizza, you will love the pizza here. I order the lunch deal - pizza, fresh salad and soda for $12. The salad was also very good - lots of fresh salad greens. This... More

I am often asked as a professional chef and resteratour where do I go out to eat. Well honestly I get disappointed 95% of the time with my fellow chefs not being talented or having trained staff to execute the menu, but John Allen and his partner along with there staff are putting out the most simple but executed very...

True wood fired neapolitan style pizza, perfectly executed, great value for money and friendly staff. Love the fact that you can have a beer or wine with your pizza.

CS is in a strip mall and readily accessible by car, bus, bike and metro (Twinbrook). The storefront and setup is very simple, bordering on bare. The staff is mostly young men who are industriously making pies and managing the store, not cheerful, but pleasant and helpful. Families, kids, and some couples seem to be the prevailing customer base in-store.... More

If you love Napolitano style pizza, you will not be disappointed!! I love all styles of pizza, NY, Chicago, etc. This rates up there with some of the best I've had. I've been in Italy and this is how they do it! It's super fresh with a light, thin, delicate crust that lets you taste the ingredients. The gentlemen who... More

We thought our pizzas (at $13 each) were quite good: the buffalo cheese on the CS Margherita was particularly buttery, the Napoli had just the right amount of salty but tasty anchovies, and the Sopresatta was a savory treat. The oven's high temperature produces a nicely charred and chewy crust, and the tomato sauce is high-quality. There are five salads:... More
