Piazza-Asheville

Anybody had a chance to try it yet? Its Reza's new pizza place on US-74 where Harvest (yuck) used to be.Wood fired oven and looks from the outside like the space has been completely renovated.

      Just got back from lunch there, and it was FANTASTIC. We split a Greek salad, which was huge, plenty for three or maybe even four to share. I had the 10" Pollo pizza, which is roasted chicken, caramelized onion, mozzarella, tomato, and basil. The crust was perfect, the sauce had a bit of a kick, and the chicken was juicy and flavorful. All in all, one of the best pizzas I've had in a long time. Hubby had the spaghetti with shrimp in an amitriciana (spicy tomato) sauce, which was also very tasty. We will definitely be back.

    2. I have a good friend that lives out that way. He was excited to try Piazza when they opened.
      I will check into it and report back.

      1. I have a friend who ate their opening night. She is not much of a foody but said it was "fantastic" and had "great prices". Its on my list to try for sure.

          We were there a few days ago - OMG!!!!! The pizza is killer. And you're right - the prices were unbelievably reasonable....

        2. does anyone know how the pizza compares to West 1st in H'ville? they look like similar styles.

          1. we went opening weekend-pizza's great& the different sauces for the spaghetti-will probably be where the foodie finds peace-hubby had putenesca (sp?) w/ anchovy, olive & I think capers; i had the pesto chicken-a creamy pesto sauce with chicken-not very adventurous but i've been trying to get back all week-i'm still drooling!!! also, love the remodel job Reza has done, esp. the glass mosaic fire around the oven. definitely good food @ a friendly price & great for families w/ small children-we took our 3 boys under 5.
