About the meal: I have to say I absolutely LOVE the pizze at Masseria! The thin crust is just perfect, and the aroma of the oven simply splendid. I tend to like my pizzas plain-ish (too much meat can make it too salty) so my go-to is the margherita, pictured above.
The sauce tastes home made and there is just the right amount of cheese and salt. I’ve tried several other pizze (posts to come) but this is definitely my favorite one there! Also the charcoal activated crust. No it’s not burnt crust! You really cannot taste the difference with regular crust, except for the fact that it tastes smoother and softer, not as crispy as regular dough. I personally prefer it that way.
About the place: As you can probably tell from the picture above I didn’t eat this pizza in the restaurant, but I’ve eaten there before so I’ll speak on that. The vibe is simply amazing! From the moment you order to the service you receive, all the staff is just so useful and friendly. When dining in, there are pots of basil so you can put some fresh herbs on your pizz… yumm!
You also have to love the fact that the food comes out REALLY fast! I’ve never waited longer than 10 min for my pizza, even with a large group. And little bonus, the view is amazing if you get a spot on the big round table 😉 Look out for it, although it’s really hard to miss!
They offer all sorts of other Italian foods – salads and sandwiches. I haven’t tried them but they looked very appealing from the display.
A little heads up – Masseria is not a full service restaurant, so you will have to order and pay, pick your seat and then receive your food. I have to say though that out of the many restaurants on King W, Masseria is one of the few that will take a lunch reservation. On that note, they’re also on Ritual, if you wanted to order online and quickly grab ‘n go. Props!
