pizzeria bianco

After Pizzeria Bianco was voted "The Best Pizza in America" by Oprah viewers I knew I had to check it out. The wait time for a table can be up to three hours so when our name was called after only an hour and a half we felt like we won the lottery. Thankfully, they have an adorable little historic house turned wine bar next door for patrons to pass the time in, so it really wasn't all that bad.

Once we were seated inside the tiny restaurant service was fast and friendly. After the long wait we decided to sample as many pizzas as possible. We tried the Margherita, Sonny Boy and Wiseguy pizzas. My favorite was the Sonny Boy, made with fresh mozzarella, salami and salty Gaeta olives.

Final verdict? The pizza was fresh and flavorful and the atmosphere was charming. I highly recommend it, but only if you have an entire evening to dedicate to your dining experience. We will definitely be back... I'm dying to try the pistachio pizza!

  21. Pizzeria Bianco is so worth the wait, the best Phoenix restaurant for rustic pizza. Bar Bianco next store is one of my favorite spots in the downtown area for a nice glass of wine. I try to go later at night; sometimes the waits aren't as long- it just depends.
