Cibo Pizzeria is the place to visit if you can only go to one. They serve Neapolitan authentic pie in slices that feature some of the most mouth watering toppings you can imagine. They're a favorite of the locals for their absolutely huge selection of gourmet pizzas all in Neapolitan style. They also make highly acclaimed pomodoro fresco pies using basil, grape tomatoes and mozzarella. The first priority is the food which is amazing, but you'll also enjoy the quaint environment as you dine. The building for the pizzeria is a 1900s era bungalo that has a relaxed atmosphere with a touch of old world charm.

Spinato's is hands down the best place in Phoenix to get deep dish pizza. They offer an out of this world traditional Chicago style that can only be rivaled by the city of its origin itself. The first Spinato's Pizzeria opened its doors in the Phoenix area in 1974. It became an instant success and soon, was obliged to open several other locations to keep up with the demand from its customers. Throughout the thirty four years that Spinato's Pizzeria has been in business, its provided delicious pizzas made with top quality ingredients.

Pizzeria Bianco is one of those pizza places that has the privilege of being another Chris Bianco establishment. He's the proprietor and quality is practically the chef's middle name. He insists on serving only the best of the best. What can we say about the pizza served here, except that it's absolutely fabulous. The locals all know that this is a great pizza place and to prove it, they're willing to form a line and wait for their turn to get theirs. The only real down side to eating at Pizzeria Bianco is that it can take a few hours to get a table.
Federal Pizza is another favorite that serves pizza with a great flavor and texture on the go. It offers drive through service that is highly appreciated by both locals and visitors to the area. This eliminates the wait. It's not your average pizza delivery type pie though. The pizzas are high end and there's a big difference in the quality of the ingredients and the taste. You have a big selection of toppings to choose from but they're all good. If you're in a hurry, you don't want to settle for an average pizza and you want it to go, then we suggest visiting Federal Pizza.
