Luisa's BRick Oven Pizza, Charlotte NC
Is Luisa's Brick Oven Pizza in Charlotte near Park Road shopping center worth a visit? What about comparable to other local pizza places? I tend to buy my grandparents restaurant gift certificates for local places for holidays and birthdays and they have never tried Luisa's... wanted your opinions. Thanks!
I like it very much. I think the brick oven really makes for a tasty crunchy crust.
You should check it out!
Yup, worth a visit. It is good brick oven pizza, with good quality toppings. Much better than Brixx. I do wish they would change out the plastic lawn chairs they use....
Not the fanciest place in Charlotte, but good, consistent pizza. Even their pizza buffet at lunchtime is worthy of a visit.
I've had pizza at 4 local places recently. Intermezzo, Hawthorne Pizza Kitchen, Fuel Pizza, & Luisa's. I'd say that Luisa's is the best. Great crust! My wife & I love their pizza I'd rank Intermezzo's second of these 4. Great crust also. Hawthorne next. and far, far below I'd rank Fuel Pizza. I wouldn't go back to Fuel if my kids didn't like it. Can't miss w/Luisa's tho...
I went to Luisa's for dinner based on some of the posts here looking forward to a good brick oven experience.
Here is a summary
- Arrive around 6 Pm on a Monday - a teenage girl (seemingly the owner's daughter and hostess) drags herself away from a table full of her friends and tells me I can sit anywhere
- I wait 15 minutes for a waiter - I am literally the only person in the restaurant - the hostess never offered to get him – In his defense once he made an appearance he did a reasonable good job
- The food was at best OK - the cheese bread was far better than the pizza. The pizza had a crispy crust and soggy center - not so good.
Left after paying the bill - passed the hostess without as much as a 'come again", "thanks for coming and being our only customer tonight", etc .
My advice would be that there are far better pizza places in town in both the service and food category - I'm not sure where they are but this ain't it.
