Livy’s Neapolitan Pizzeria
Unfortunately half of the pizza still had slightly raw dough in the crust. The bottom of the pizza doesnt get cooked nearly enough either, too much flop even for Neapolitan style. Also, the char taste is too much - youre supposed to clean the oven bake stone once in a while instead of serving people old charcoal. Hopefully this place gets it together, or Heist finds a new food option.
The beer cheese was subpar. The pretzels were so dry and dense and were heavily salted. The Margherita pizza was not authentic, the sauce was heavy and the pizza was generally dry because the spots without cheese had dried out in the oven. My husband got the napoliatana pizza, and thought the toppings were ok. 2 stars for the staff being super nice and the crust of the pizza being decent.
Livy's pizza was absolutely amazing! I'm glad it won Best Pizza in Charlotte recently. The beer cheese pretzel sticks were the best beer cheese I have ever-ever had anywhere!! The Carnivore pizza was soooo dang good too! I can't wait to come back when the bourbon barrel rested beer is available with Heist Brewery!!!
It's not terrible but it's also not great. The beer cheese was a disapointment. It was slightly bitter and not savory. Mellow Mushroom has better beer cheese. We ordered the carnivoro.The pizza was just okay. Marinara was on the sweet side. The apperance of the pizza - I would describe it as something trying to be appear as modern. It was not executed correctly. The burnt spots takes off points. The cheese shavings were scattered with no care (spots with no cheese). The menu misleaded us thinking this was going to be a modern take of Italian pizza. I'm sorry but I would definitely rather eat at a pizza chain than here. Also, location and the name was confusing. We thought it was separate from Heist Brewery but you actually go in and order the food from the bar area. So yeah, bar food.
This pizza restaurant is located on the north side of town and has a huge outdoor and indoor seating area. The staff was very welcoming when we entered, especially Lindsay. She made sure we ordered our favorite type of items and the fan fav, beer cheese pretzels!! Such a great suggestion along with 2 meat pizzas. We loved the huge murals and can't wait to come back and try the barrel aged beers we spotted.
