Pizza A Metro

A scrumptious menu, cute atmosphere, and shockingly reasonable prices are what make tiny, 20-seat Pizza A Metro — practically hidden in plain view, next to a Circle K — one of the best budget gourmet finds in the Valley. Owner Maurizio Benforte, a native of Sorrento, Italy, serves up top-notch grilled calamari, homemade pastas, and creamy tiramisu with sincere enthusiasm. As for the tasty wood-fired pizzas, they really are available by the meter (that's what Pizza A Metro means), while a "small" pie is still a generous portion even for the hungriest customer.
