“Margherita "Pita" Pizza”

Reviewed 22 June 2018

There was about a thirty minute weight a little after five pain on a Saturday. The neighborhood is nice for a short walk. The atmosphere is nice, restaurant is crowded and noisy. The margherita pizza is not a typical one. It is more like a big pita, topped with almost whole tomatoes, and some occasional mozzarella, as well as a few other ingredients. It was tasty, but I would never order it again. Alot of people were having regular pies or pepperoni, which looked pretty normal.

My brother turned us on to this South Minneapolis hot spot in his neighborhood but told us it gets pretty busy in the evening so we stopped in for lunch on a warm spring Thursday and had the place to ourselves.

We chose a table on the shaded patio out front and even splurged with a couple of glasses of fine french rose (guess we were feeling summery) while we perused the interesting menu of specialty pizza.

One of their 14” pizza with delightful crisp cracker-like crust would serve two, but we opted for leftovers and each got our own-I opted for the “double pep (pepperoni)” and my wife chose the “red wagon” which featured sausage, pepperoni, spicy banana peppers and a big drizzle of balsamic vinegar. We also chose a Cesar salad (minus the egg) and it was fine, but the lettuce could have been more thoroughly washed-it was a tiny bit sandy.

Don’t expect an instant turnaround like some of those other brick oven pizza places. The food came out at a reasonable, well-spaced pace that was perfect for our mood.

Pizza-wise I really liked the extra thin crispy crust and 1/2 a pizza was more than enough for lunch (should have maybe stopped at three slices like my spouse). Not cheap, two pizzas, two glasses of wine and a salad was around $75 before tip but the high-quality, tasty food was worth it.

This is a neat little Neighborhood Pizza Joint. We stopped in on a Saturday night and were told it would be 60 minutes for a table. It ended up only being about 30 minutes. I thought the interior was reminiscent of an old pizza place. Service was fantastic. They had a wonderful menu and bar selection. Pizza was very good love the thin crust. Would like to stop back and try some other items.

Stopped in while moving daughter up to school in the cities. Kinda pricey pizza but good. Thin crust, great craft beer selection. Family ran decor, parking is challenging.

We stopped in Saturday for lunch and order a couple pizzas. It didn’t seem that busy but it took awhile to order and seemed like the pizzas took a lot of time to cook but they tasted great so worth the wait! The crust was thin and crackery tasting.
