I LOVE this spot. Custom built pizza in a true Italian style. Their patio has a good ambiance. Most importantly, their pizza is AMAZING!! We love the margarita pizza with prosciutto added. I try to save 5 star reviews for truly the best spots, and this one earns 5 stars easily. If you havent yet, try this place. You will not be disappointed!
Inizio is in our top 3 pizza places in Charlotte. The pizza is great, but the service has been the downfall recently. Called in an order at 5:25 for a 6pm pick up as we were heading to pick our son up from daycare. The trip went quicker than expected and we got there at 5:40, and the pizza was already sitting on the counter. We also added to the order when friends decided to join us. Both of the calls were with monotone voices, that gave off the impression our business was an inconvenience and annoyance to them. Our request for the pizza to be ready at 6pm was clearly ignored. When youre paying $50+ for two larges, the food and service should be great.
I love pizza. I could eat pizza every day. I also enjoy making Neapolitan pizza at my house. It is SO hard to get any REAL Neapolitan pizza around here, but Inizio NAILED IT. The Pomodoro sauce is authentic, and the crust is chewy. The ingredients are top-notch. Not the cheapest pizza you can get, but who wants cheap pizza when you can eat the best pizza.
Place was clean but not what we wanted. We were from SC for the day and wanted good brick oven pizza. It was fast food for sure. Ordered pizza in an order line and took a number for our table. Pizza took only about 5 minutes to come to our table. It was big, but very greasy. Crust was burnt on bottom and maybe one piece of round cheese per slice that was not melted, maybe 3 pieces of sausage on each slice and a couple of strips of pepperoni on each slice. We ordered a large so we would have leftovers. Service was good. Reviews were good so we stopped there but not our kind of pizza and place. They were also out of tea.
Im sure its great if your food is cooked and not rotting. The lettuce had holes in it and was soggy and slimy. The pizza was so undercooked I could have scraped it and made my own pizza from the dough. The cheese wasnt even fully melted. Now I just hope we dont get sick from the few bites we took.
