The lemonade cocktail we had was delicious and actually a good value at $26 for a large pitcher. We ordered a calzone to split. When we got it we cut it open and it was literally ice cold inside. Cheese was not even melted and meat was cold. Sent it back and the next one we got was okay, but... More

We visited with a large group for a friends birthday and had a great time. We had the group all you can eat serving which let's you have all the different types of pizza. The beer list was ok and I would have preferred a few more local drafts on but was still good. Overall good pizza and I would... More

Delicious pizza with such a variety of offerings. I had #55 with potatoes and an egg and it was simply delicious. The salad was excellent with fresh greens flowing over, tuna and other fresh veggies. A great place for all 6 of us to meet. The gelato and sorbet were excellent as well!

I had calzone #55 and it was to die for! The server delivered lots of extra tomato sauce that worked great with the calzone. My friend loved her choice as well.

We were invited to a party at Hot Italian and maybe it was just because it was Thursday night, not even a weekend night, but it took almost a half hour to find a parking place!!. But the pizza was outstanding...many different kinds to chose from along with salads and desserts. It was a little noisy, but I guess that... More

This place was absolutely wonderful. Easy walk from the Capitol so nice for lunch. Got just basically a cheese pizza and the walnut and fruit salad on bread. It was so delicious I did not even believe it. I would highly recommend it - get the salad on the bread; it sounds weird but it is so good! Will definitely... More

I love this place when I'm craving truly authentic italian fare and OMG the gelato!!! Their pizza is delicious although you need a whole pie just to fill you up. They are small but have generous toppings. Light on the sauce but the flavors really pop in your mouth. It's a bit pricey but worth it every once in a... More

Top quality toppings and crust make their pizzas extra good. Very casual, contemporary vibe. The bench-type seating was slightly uncomfortable for my touchy back but this did not deter from enjoying the food!

Before I begin, let me say that I LOVE Hot Italian in Sacramento. The food is fabulous, it has a cool, minimalist vibe and we've always gotten good service. Hot Italian in Davis only compares with regard to the quality of the pizzas. The space is far too small, the service is rigid and unfriendly, ours and other's orders were... More

Much better experience with service on our return trip to Hot Italian. Be adventuresome and try one of the very unique pizzas. We loved our salad which was big enough to split between three. Pizzas were great and we loved the roasted vegetables. Gelato and sorbet was a nice finish to a great meal. We were really glad we went... More
