Pizza Italia is blessed with what may be the best NYC style pizza available in Raleigh, but is cursed with the worst location. Do yourself a favor, and make the effort to seek it out. Westgate Rd, just north of Hwy 70 underpass...brown brick s/c on the right.
Owner is authentic Italian from the old country. You can tell he really cares about the product he provides to his customers.
Their calzones are incredible...full cream ricotta, fresh veggies, crust has real flavor, marinara is perfect (ask for extra!).
Spaghetti is always perfect, al dente texture...
We always get consistently high quality food there.
...their food really is great - go try it out.
Pros: Perfect NYC pizza, Perfect Calzones, Consistent quality
Cons: location, location..., decor/lighting
