Pizza a Metro Menu

Sorry, We are updating this restaurant menu details.

Diabetics at Pizza Hut

Pizza is neither a great meal nor the worst for diabetes. All you need is some fact check and monitoring while ordering your pizza. Diabetics can opt for thin crust or skinny pizza at Pizza Hut and avoid the cheese topping to cut down on the excess fat and sodium. If you have diabetes, then ensure to check your portion size when you order a pizza. One or max. two slices are enough. You can also avoid meat if possible and go for wings as a meat option.

Foods to Avoid at Pizza Hut for Diabetics:

You must avoid Meat Lovers Pizza with Original Pan Crust as it contains over 1000mg sodium and will add 470 calories in your meal. You should also skip Super Supreme Pizza Large Original Pan Slice which is too high in sodium and fat. Chicken wings are often tempting but you must control and restrict yourself from ordering Traditional Honey BBQ Bone-in Wings as it can add up to your sugar levels if you eat too many. On average, a person orders or consumes six chicken wings pieces in a day.

Sides must be avoided at all costs especially if it's Bacon Cheddar Fries with Ranch Dipping Cup for its high sodium content. You must also avoid New York Style Cheesecake with Applesauce as dessert as one slice of this dessert item contains 86g sugar. Pizza Hut also offers other Italian dishes such as Pasta. However, you must skip Spaghetti with Meat Sauce and Meatballs and Garlic Bread as it is too high in sodium and sugar.

    I went here last week for a take out order. It is small, seats about 20 people, the lights were dimmed, it was cozy and the gentleman at the counter was very nice. He suggested to me what was popular so I ordered the Margarita Pizza with prosciutto. It was a brick oven place and the pizza was finished in about 15 minutes. The crust is to die for and it's also a hand tossed/thin crust. They have a good selection on the menu as well. It's in a small strip mall and it looks as if it's in a bad area, but it is worth it. I will go back!

    I got a small Margherita pizza and a side mixed green salad. It was amazing! Great dressing on the salad and the pizza was perfect too. I will definitely be back.

    Me + Pizza A Metro= FOODGASMS!!! My boyfriend and I stopped into a local aquarium and just before leaving the man who worked there suggested Pizza A Metro to us as we had been talking about lunch the whole time. Unfortunately that day we already had lunch in the car so we went back Saturday evening. I am going to send the guy at the aquarium a pizza or something. Literally. Our server was more than helpful, brought out the bread bruschetta style and that set the tone for the evening!!! The attention to detail was outstanding. We ordered an appetizer of Calamari fritta, the marinara was so fresh you could distinguish every ingredient and was bright and vibrant. I am one who doesn't really like to go out to eat. I know I am very picky, and pretentious, and I will be less than nice if the food is bad... So that whole ugly picture- I like to avoid. Hard to because I come from a long line of properly trained French chefs, and myself am a chef/ restauranteur as well. I have NEVER EVER given a restaurant 5 stars, but today I would give this little eatery 6! From the moment you walk in, the interior is not what you would expect from the so often mentioned neighborhood. OK, so! The colors are a warm neutral tone, and flow well into the wood wine rack that spans the height of the wall to your right of the door, the blinds match up to that rack and there is an overall harmony throughout. When you walk into this 8-9 table restaurant you are greeted first by the smell of fresh pizza being fired in the wood oven, and then by a friendly waiter who made sure every thing we could want or need was taken care of before we had a chance to want for it. Our pizza, thin crispy crust without being dry or crunchy was topped with mozzarella, artichoke, black olives, and prosciutto and was heaven! For desert I ordered a slice of their tiramisu, and was again blown away. The flavors were balanced and sung together like an orchestra! Oh amazing! I was impressed by this little gem, and the icing on my tiramisu, another table asked the waiter to let them pay for my dessert! The overall atmosphere was warm, and inviting- even the other patrons were awesome! At the end of our meal and after having eaten all of that I expected to feel 'heavy and drowsy'. I instead felt sated, comfortable and overwhelmingly satisfied in the experience. This place rose above with the atmosphere, (warm + inviting) exceptional food, (I am still eating the pizza!), and with the customer service which was also exceptional! We will be customers for years to come.

    I'm not quite sure what all the hype is all about. Sure, they offer fresh and authentic Italian food, but they are also in a ghetto, run-down area and the prices are not competitive for the overall value ($8 for a small sandwich and salad). The service was surprisingly good, and the bread was superb, but the cons will prevent me from coming back.

    Don't eat the anchovies! I went there on 8/3/13 in the afternoon ordered a 16" with anchovies on half. Place was cool, had a Rolling Rock and kicked back till it was done. Didn't think much about it when the guy making my pizza and another kitchen guy were having a discussion about a blue and white rectangular can, ended up being the anchovies. He used them on my pizza and threw them away, opened a new can. Obviously the fire wasn't hot enough cause he kept putting more wood in it. I took home my under cooked, germ ridden, toxic pizza and ate half of it. The fun kicked in about thirty minutes prior to catching a morning flight on 8/4/13. It's now 8/7/13 and I've been in constant contact with many different restrooms since then, it just will not stop, missed some work, had an IV for dehydration. At least the headaches, sweating and vomiting has stopped.

    Not great. Been here twice and not impressed. The crust of the pizza is unusually chewy and I always find hard pieces hidden in the dough. The Margarita pizza is bland. There are 3 better pizza places in the area.

  • John H.

    You can't deny the likability of an honest man running a little Italian restaurant. The 7-9 tables that make up this great neighborhood find, the attentive service by the service staff who was also helping cook in the kitchen, and the unexpected quality food that came out were 3 key ingredients that make this a 5-Star Find! Even though the name of this place suggests ordering pizza, I didn't actually get to taste the pizza. :(...but I saw it and it looked amazing! Next time. What I did find was MY NEW FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT GNOCCHI!!! I ordered the Gnocchi alla Sorrentina and it was fantastico! The only way to describe this dish (which on this night came with a vodka sauce instead of their usual tomato sauce i guess) was a plate full of little fluffy pillows of deliciousness!!! It was a great dish that I will be coming back for. Thank you Pizza A Metro for a great dinner...and Victor, don't be afraid to expand...a few extra tables might be a nice move for you.

    In a reasonably late scramble for dinner, this pizza place was quite a find. The location isn't altogether promising, right next to a Circle K and tucked in an itty bitty end in a strip mall. There are only about 7 table. Yet the owner, whose service was excellent, makes the most of the situation. The wife and I split a margherita pizza. Out first, though, is the appetizer, which was small pieces of pita-like flatbread served with balsamic vinegar served over a tomato and celery salsa cruda. Nom. Worth eating in for. The pizza itself was a thin crust... The crust was decent, the cheese was good, and both the basil and tomato very fresh. It must be nice having ready access to fresh versions of both year-round! We were very happy with our meal. Pizza A Metro should be on your short list for a good Italian pizza in the area.

    Mama Mia! what are you a doing here? I was leery to say the least coming to this part of town with my boss for lunch. It is in a small strip mall where the .99 store even found a need for metal bars on the winnow. This is not your typical location for fine dining. External appearances inside you are met with a small dining room with nice tables and chairs (no table cloths.) Note seating is limited to 4 four person tables and two 2 person tables. The menu us full of Italian food like pastas, not just pizza. Due the name of this place I had to try the pizza, I went with a small vegetarian ($10) It had everything on it, including artichoke, eggplant, olives and more. For a small it is a good size, this with a app or salad would be good for two. Big me only ate half. Meals include and amazing bruchetta, the flat bread is hot straight from the wood oven, the bruchetta is full of flavor and is fresh. My bosses spagetti and meatballs (8.95) were artfully presented and, as I could see the kitchen cooked and sauted to order. He enjoyed his meal as well. If you are looking for some great food in a very unexpected location give this place a try.

    Curb appeal given the neighborhood and parking -- lots to be desired. (and why the 4 stars only) But once inside and the appetizers hit the table and food appears -- you will be in heaven and not caring what happens outside at all. Numerous visits and it all has been incredibly good. Highly recommended and I an anticipating yet another visit upcoming. =)

  • Daniel T.

    I called in a pasta order ahead. I tried two dishes. The chicken parm and one other dish. The sauces were tasty but a bit on the salty side as the other reviews have mentioned. AND I LOVE SALT!! I don't know what it was but the staff (owner and cook) were both very nice but for some reason I felt awkward in that place like I was an unexpected guest. Then again, I'm a younger, sharper dressed, fine watch, imported car kind of American boy and this strip mall isn't in the part of town that makes you all warm and fuzzy inside.. It wasn't enough to turn me off but I did feel weird being in there. The food was good overall with the exception of being really salty. At least it isn't bland and has flavor. I will surely give them another shot and try the pizza...

  • Nick B.

    Try this hidden gem. I haven't had the pasta yet but the pizza is amazing and have been told from friends the pasta is the same. After talking to the owner last month he is suppose to start offering delivery soon.

    We love this place! The pizza is phenomenal but the chicken Marsala is to die for!! Always a win ! Love the people who run it and the service is always great!

  • Stormy Suncloud G.

    This place is very tiny, not pretentious, but not junky and the people are friendly. We ordered the very big pizza, not sure what it is called, but it is served on a wood plank. The ingredients were fresh and the flavors were good. I have had better pizza before, but I still applaud eating food that actually tastes like real food in restaurants now days. Several people at other tables were ordering Italian dishes that looked and smelled amazing. I would love to come back and try some of those.

    Pizza was great! Got the Margarita Pizza. However the pasta was ok and the place was somewhat too small. Services was excellent!!!

    Bumping up a half star. Stopped by last night after phoning in an order for pickup on my way home to the oppressive NW burbs of Phoenix. When I arrived I was told that they made the wrong pie, and it would not be ready for several minutes. Before I could tell them no worries, the manager offered to buy me a beer. Why yes you can! Settled in and chatted for a while over an ice cold Moretti, so nice that they have the full gamut of booze now. He tells me that they may be opening a third spot out in Gilbert. Nice to see a cool group of indie owners doing well in times like this. The pie was delicious as usual, and so was the lasagna. The joint was pretty empty though, so if you have not tried them yet, check it out!

  • Jeremy G.

    I have been here twice and my recommendation is to have any of the pastas. My friend had the lasagna and said the noodles just melted in his mouth. I had the penne al vodka and the sauce was perfectly creamy. I had the pizza on my second visit and it was definitely good, but not the best I have had in this city. That being said, the tiny restaurant (there are literally only 5 to 6 tables all nestled against the kitchen) oozes charm. This place is hard to spot, but worth the try.

  • Jennifer S.

    What a nice surprise! I heard about this place on Open Table and then did some research on Yelp and quickly realized I better get my butt over to this amazing place! I checked it out for a quick lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside and there are very few tables inside, but the food speaks for itself! The staff was all very friendly and willing to please. The bread and tomatoes were amazing to start and my pasta was just delicious! The 4.5 star overall review for this place is definitely warranted in my book!

    (4)
  • Stacy M.

    Caprese Salad was just so so. The tomatoes were similar to the type that you see on a burger and not enough basil or oil. LOVE the complimentary pizza crust bites and olive/tomato dip. the crust bites were soft puffs that made me excited for what the pizza will taste like. Pizza Meatball was delicious, great crust consistency and just the right amount of sauce to cheese to meatball ratio. I know its a small mom and pop restaurant, so I feel a bit bad for saying this, but I thought the service was too slow.

    (3)
  • Erin B.

    This little tiny restaurant (which I NEVER knew was there!!) is definitely tied for the best pizza I've had in Phoenix. The penne alla vodka was amazing as well. Two small pizzas and two pasta dishes filled up the 4 of us to the brim! Great atmosphere, reasonable prices, amazing food and excellent, friendly service...I'll definitely be bringing my family here the next time they visit Phoenix!

  • Joanna L.

    Came here pretty late - - like 30 minutes before they closed but the owner was nice and let us sit in. I ordered the cheese ravioli with alfredo sauce....a little salty and there were only 7 pieces of med-sized ravioli....which I thought was a little pricey ($13.95) but it tasted pretty good. My boyfriend ordered their small Margherita Tomato and Mozzarella pizza ($8.95)...very thin and crispy and pretty decent size for a small and a pretty good deal. The restaurant is relatively small....has about 2 tables that fits about 5 people and 2-3 small tables for 2 people. Most people I think usually order out at this place. It is supposedly located in a shady neighborhood (according to the owner) but we got out fine haha...=X The restaurant itself is located in a small plaza at the very corner...so it's possible to miss it when driving at night but they do have a med-sized arrow sign that says Pizza in neon florescence light as you enter the driveway. The owner was the only server...he was very nice and talkative ... learned a little about Arizona from him...since he lived there for 6 years...hehe I guess he was kinda bored too since there was no one else but us. Overall I was pretty satisfied so I would come back to place when I'm in Arizona again hehe

    I went here with the BF and a couple of our friends tonight for dinner and it was mighty tasty. I'm very glad I looked at Yelp before going so I knew where this place was because otherwise I would've been very lost. The place is extremely small which makes it slightly uncomfortable (like everyone can hear your conversation and you are sitting very close to other parties) but don't let this scare you off because the food is very good. They give you free bruschetta (essentially) which I thought was the best part of the whole meal....so good! The bread was light and delicious and the topping was vinegary, oniony, and fresh tasting....super yummy. We all kind of shared food, the BF and I got the meatball pizza which was tasty, but a bit heavy on the meatball (can I even say that? ha...) it was thin sliced pieces of meatball on top of a basic cheese pizza. The crust is very good and the sauce is also very fresh tasting. The pizza could have used some basil or something to make it have more depth of flavor, but it was good as is. We also shared the gnocchi which are made in house and were light, airy, and delicious! I love eating places that make their cheese and pasta in house....very cool. Our friends got the penne with vodka sauce which was super bacon -y but good. I couldn't eat a whole plate of it (too heavy) but it is extremely flavorful. They also got a pizza and really enjoyed it. Although I wouldn't say this place is the best pizza in town, it is very good and I would love to eat here again. PS: the prices are awesome!!! So many quality ingredients for so little money....excellent!

  • Nadia C.

    We ordered a METRO pizza (just pepperoni and cheese) for pick up. HILARIOUSLY huge box. It took up the entire back-seat length of my Honda CRV. The pizza was delicious. I think everything has been said about Pizza A Metro already but it really is some good pizza. I need to go back and try the pasta now. It is really small and warm, so I will need to go in the winter when it's cooler. But I am sure it is worth the heat. I wanted to save the pizza box and use it to store wrapping paper in it but my husband wouldn't let me. booo. It went to the recycle bin.

    Okay, I have passed this place in the past, no more!!! Capricciosa pizza, all I can say, yummy, yummy, yummy. The side salad was good, the service great. Had the complimentary crust appetizer for dessert (LOL)... Can't wait to go back.

    Jackpot! Pizza a Metro is that rare joint that gets the basics down right - great food at an excellent value, paired with a charming interior (albeit tiny) and an owner who understands service and customer loyalty. My only fear is that the place will change as more Phoenicians get wise to this gem. Robert O. put it best, you'd have to be a stone cold douche to think that this place isn't [great]. \

  • Anaima R.

    Don't be deceived by the neighborhood of lack of curb appeal, this is a great restaurant! I was out on a business trip and used Yelp to guide me... I was not disappointed. We ordered the small (12") Margherita & a small Siciliana (cheese & eggplant pizza) they were both amazing. Though friends Siciliana was tastier, you can't go wrong with either one. The table next to us ordered pasta dishes and all we kept hearing is "delicious"! They stared at our pizza when it came and remarked on how good it looked... they were right. The Italian Wedding soup we ordered as an appetizer was a but bland but not terrible. They brought a complimentary appetizer of pita slices & a type if onion relish dip - very yummy! The tiramisu was also quiet yummy. Overall a good experience - totally worth a visit... or multiple visits.

  • Mandy O.

    Was here for the 2nd time the other night. The food here is awesome! The pizza definitely has more of an authentic Italian feel to it. Got the prosciutto and arugula pizza last time I went. The crust is perfect - it's not super crispy thin - but still light and perfect. Oh, the dessert is pretty awesome too! We ordered a cannoli and tiramisu. Whatever the stuff that's stuffed in the cannoli tastes like chocolate chip cookie dough without being overwhelming. The service wasn't the greatest which is why I'm only giving it 4. I think it was the owner who took care of us, and maybe cuz it was the end of the day or something - but he didn't seem to be in the greatest of moods and wasn't all to welcoming or friendly. We didn't let it get to us. This place is definitely tucked away in a random tiny strip mall on Thomas. You miss it if you blink. But definitely worth the stop to check out.

    don't get me wrong, I'm still a HUGE fan of this place!! Whenever I'm on that side of town, I whimper at the thought of not being able to go here. Damn economy! *sigh* But recently, I had my chance... to yet again dwell in the goodness that is Pizza a Metro. and GOOD GOOGLY MOOGLY!!! That's a HUGE pie!! A good friend and I went there when he said that he wanted a LOT of food. "I want to order a small have a whole trough come to the table!" Not feeling the Heart Attack Grill, I convinced my friend to try PIzza a Metro. We did and it was wonderful! A little to loud for our liking - we really needed to shout to hear one another. But we loved it. We shared the gnocchi with vodka sauce and I could just feel the world being lifted off my shoulders!! haha! He never had gnocchi before I feel I may have ruined him for it forever. Then we had the Pizza a Metro with three different types of toppings! THREE feet of pizza ya'll!! It was a shit load of food!! I couldn't believe it! Three feet of Sausage w/broccoli, arugula & procutto, and various meat toppings! It took up most of the table! We dug in and by the end of the night, most of that bad boy was gone! I couldn't believe we ate that much! Oh and if that wasn't enough - our waiter told us of the various desserts! Desserts he said... we had to try the creme brulee - my FAVORITE dessert ever! and it was burnt! And undercooked at the same time! I couldn't believe it. I was so disappoitned! But I didn't let it ruin our great night. We still talked until most of the lights were out. And we laughed over everything. It was a great night. I'm so glad we went. The food was as good as I remember it. To my yelpers I say GO!! but skip the creme brulee!

    I have been to this place several times now. Always unbelievably good! We ate there once,quite cute and quiet. Very small inside, It smells wonderful inside as well. I love to get it to go though. The Pizza crust is amazing. Love everything we have ever ordered here. Salads, pasta and the Pizza. It is located in a rough little shopping center, but so worth going there. My most favorite Pizza shop.

    We took mom there for her b-day tonight. Just a chill evening with good food, nothing pretentious, nothing outlandish, nothing crowded, nothing chain. We loved it. She choose Margarita pizza, Cheese ravioli, Cesar salad. The bread they serve before the meal was amazing. The salad was cold and crisp with a perfect amount of dressing. The Ravioli was the best I have ever had. We even had a surprise Penne Pasta with artichoke and marinara arrive at the table. It was a typo when entering the order. It was really good too. Then for dessert they brought out Creme Brule with a candle! Thanks for the great evening tonight, we loved the food and appreciated the service.

    It's all about the oven! Wood fired brick oven I'm guessing. Excellent Pizza!! If you ever wanted to prove the saying "don't judge a book by the cover" this would be the place! I've driven past here a hundred times a didn't think twice. Then I got hold of a Pizza Top 10 list and this was on it. I even tried coming here twice before and left without coming inside. I wish I would have. I will definitely be back for more! Also the interior isn't what you would expect, it is very tasteful. Woohoo, I got a new pizza destination.

    Fantastic pizza, good friendly service, cute inside atmosphere, but the location is a nasty dump next to a Circle K in a seedy part of town with absolutely no parking. I had to get up during my meal to get two teenage "homies" off my car. Since when is it ok to lean on someone's car with a slurpie in your hand? Pizza wasn't as thin as most Neopolitan pies. Crust at the end was rather uniform too, in shape and consistency. No irregularity which is the signature of a hand tossed pie (not that theirs isn't hand tossed). Sauce delivered great tomato flavor and cheese was rich, and clearly high quality stuff. Prices were reasonable. I'm not kidding - there's maybe 4-5 parking spots and about 5 tables inside. It's quaint, adorable, and the waiter seems to have an authentic Italian accent. Food is very good, almost as good as that other famous pizza place in town, but my god this place needs a new location. I thought this over for a few days before reviewing it and the location & parking just ruin the experience here, plus the lack of seating. Unless you go right at the opening you'll have no idea when or if you'll actually get a table. Silly.

    I love this place. When I did my last review I had only tried their pizza at a friend's house, but since then I've been a couple times and had the takeout a few times. The pizza is delicious! I really like the pepperoni pizza. The sauce is simple but just right, the crust is light and chewy, and the mozz is so fresh tasting. I've also tried plain margherita (cheese), and the sausage, and was happy with those too. The restaurant itself is very small and has a cozy Italian kitchen vibe (only a few tables for 2, and a couple for parties of 4). The stone pizza oven is really cool. The location is kind of random and not in the best area, but it's right off the I-17 and if you park right in front, it's fine. The owner and other staff are very friendly and accomodating. I've tried the caesar salad which was great. The romaine was chopped and crispy and the dressing and croutons were good. The penne vodka was a big portion and delicious. Excellent sauce with bits of bacon in it. It's an artery clogger but so good. My husband had the chicken parm and he really liked it. The chicken was pounded out flat, had just the right amount of breading on it, and their sauce is so good it tastes great with everything. My in-laws had spaghetti with meatballs and really enjoyed it. My friend has raved about their fresh homemade pastas, but I haven't had a chance to try them yet. Another plus when you dine in is that they cook up fresh bread in the pizza oven, cut it into small strips, and bring it to the table with a bruschetta style tomato/balsamic dip. My mouth is watering! I highly recommend to anyone who loves homestyle classic Italian food and Neapolitan style pizza.

    We were referred to Pizza A Metro by the hertz rental car girl at the airport. She said that if we didn't mind eating in a somewhat sketchy neighborhood, we would love this place. She was right. If it had turned out to be my last meal, it would have been worth it. Caesar salad and margherita pizza were amazing. Service and presentation of the meal was A++. There are only 6 tables in the joint so I don't know how easy it would be to get in at the lunch hour. If you do get in, you will want to stay and savor every aspect of the dining experience.

    Wow. Where has this place been hiding? It is located in a ghetto strip mall. but the inside is very nice and the food is incredible! Take a few friends to this place and you will be a hero for finding the best hidden gem downtown.

    So, my friend Angie and I were looking for a casual place to dine on Saturday night, and I suggested we try Pizza a Metro. I've seen that a lot of fellow Yelpers have gone here, and its recieved quite a few reviews. So, I call the place to confirm where they are located, and what time they are open until. A nice gentleman with an Italian accent answered the phone, and was so friendly and helpful! I loved it! So, I drive there, and like the gentleman said, he was right off the expressway next to a circle K. What shocked me at first was a few things. First, its a tiny little parking lot, and its shared with a circle K. I found this interesting. Fortunately, there was parking available, so I waited for my friend to arrive. The second surprise that I had was just how small this place was. Interesting. I guess if you had a larger party (more then 4 people) you would definately NEED to call in a reservation, as its a very limited seating arrangement. When my friend finally arrived, all the seats were taken, and I was greeted by the gentleman with the thick Italian accent. He told me that it would be about a 7 minute wait, so my friend and I waited outside in the parking lot. The wait ended up being more about 10 minutes, maybe 15 tops. Not bad. When we were seated, we really liked the place. Theres a firebrick oven where people were cooking pizzas. There was also other workers that you could see preparing other foods. Somewhat of an open kitchen feel. the service was great. I believe this place is owned and operated by this Italian family. they most be brothers, because periodically throughout the evening, they were speaking in Italian to each other. I think it really added to the evening, and made the place feel much more authentic. We ended up ordering our food, and even tho I was not extremely hungry, my friend was. I went with a Cesar Salad, and my friend went with the Cheese Ravioli. We were given some complimentary appitizers which were bread chunks and red sauce. Tasty! We both ordered pops, which were brought out and poured for us...but they were from those 20 ounce pop bottles that you would get at a local store...not from a fountian. I found this interesting. Angie really enjoyed her Ravioli, but I felt like my salad was a little soggy. Sitll edable, just a little to much dressing. The food here seems to be good, and I think its also the ambiance and guys that run the show that make dining here worthwhile. I would bring friends or family here who are in from out of town, becuase I think its one of those more authentic experiences. Anyways, the service was wonderful. Truely a gem, and much more fun and authentic then most places I have been for pizza and pasta lately.

    My BFF and I played hookie today to lunch it up. As always the food is out of this world good. In fact, during desert, she actually schooshed me, because she was having a moment with the tiramisu. Normally I wouldn't add this sort of thing to a review, but seriously... she schooshed me! PAM will now be open from noon to 8:30 on Sundays. They are staffing up for the opening of their Scottsdale location and the place is all a buzz. Although you can generally get in with little or no wait during lunch, you would be smart to call ahead or make a reservation for dinner. Also their liquor license is in process, but you can still BYO.

    A definite gem. We split an order of veal cannelloni in pink (vodka?) sauce, which were beautifully flavorful and surprisingly light. We also shared a medium pizza - the name escapes me but it was tomato sauce, mozz, some nice sausage with a kick and... broccoli. I can't recall ever having that on a pizza - but it worked. In fact I'd imagine most things cooked in a wood fired oven on a great crust works pretty well. Coupled with the delish bread/caponata dish, we ate very well. And there are a few slices left over in the fridge. I know some people aren't fans of the location, size, etc. but some of my fave places in other cities are in the most unexpected areas, strip malls, etc. and you have to give the owner props for taking a chance on a spot that would defy any advice from pricey consultants and created a small, but great chow experience.

    I love this place. The pizza is a Neapolitan style with a great thin crispy crust and good toppings. One of my personal favorites is the chicken Parmesan. One thing is it is very small so I always get my food to go.

    Wow where has this place been and why have I not seen their sign before? I know everyone has already reviewed and oohed and awwed , which it deserves. But I am going to give it a better rating , it tasted great and my daughter liked it! Yeah! My nine year old enjoyed it and it was good for her. Now we have a place to stop for a bite before getting on the freeway.

    The Honeycomb and I stopped in for pizza this eve because it's near our house and had great reviews here. Ordered the Penne alla Vodka pasta in tomato sauce with bacon, fresh basil, cream and vodka and damn near blew my load. It's awfully good.

    Definitely the best Italian we have had in a long time. Chicken Parm finished in the wood fired oven....wow! That in itself adds a complexity to the dish found nowhere else. Marinara made in house, perfectly cooked pasta, delicate Ravioli, this is one not to miss! Do not be put off by the location, or the funky and tiny interior...these guys can cook Italian! OR...Goodyear

    Pizza AND Beer are here atPizza A Metro!! They just got their liquor license and I was apparently the first person to order a beer. I have to say that it went perfectly with my Pizza. I can't really say anything else that the other yelpers have said so I'm keeping this one short. Service was friendly and attentive. The pizza was great. The place was clean. The beer (although the selection was limited to bud light and coors light) was refreshing. Definitely going back.

    Tiny place but delicious! Don't be fooled by the neighborhood. I got the veggie pizza and it was so good! The service was great, the owner himself was out there refilling my drink. Reasonable prices too!

    What a great place to have pizza and pasta. You will get surprised by the size of the restaurant. However, you will get more surprised by the taste of their pizza. but,, as a date place? well.. I am not sure about that. when you don't care about the "intimate" mood.. Or if s/he is a gourmet, the taste of food will provide the "intimacy" that you want. lol

    Pizza crust & toppings are excellent. However the pizza sauce was too salty. I'm willing to try again later.

    Been wanting to try this place for some time to see what was up.. the only thing I can say is that I'm sorry.. so sorry for not coming here sooner. Yes, this place is in the hood and is smaller than a postage stamp but is so good that you can brave the seedy location for one night. There are several pasta's on the menu but only a handful are handmade. We had the gnocci in the vodka sauce as well as the cheese ravioli.. come on, these are so good.. like crazy yummy good! The creamy sauce paired well with the perfectly prepared pasta's.. eyes were rolled back into our heads!! For our main course we ordered the meatball Metro.. this pizza is HUGE.. check out the pics! for 25 bucks this monster is worth every penny.. sweet chunky tomato sauce with fresh mozzarella and little chunks of meatball.. the crust was a little bit salty in a good way.. the crust could have been enjoyed on its own! In the end this place so many wonderful elements.. fast personal service, great pricing and wonderful eats. Its a real winner!! Cant wait to try the new location over on our side of town.

    Absolutely Fantastic!!!!! When we moved into the downtown area... we ordered a pizza from here to be delivered on moving day. It was so delicious, I almost inhaled it! The crust could have been a little bit crunchier (seemed a tad bit soggy from sitting in the box.) -- but, still NOT BAD. The sauce was delish... the cheese tasted fresh... and the basil on top added the perfect flavor! It was more pricey than a typical pizza chain... but, definitely worth it for the taste. I'd like to visit the actual restaurant sometime soon!

    Wow! This place is great, and in such an unexpected location. I work over here, and I am thrilled to find a great place to each lunch. Working on the West side means not many lunch choices for sure. I called in my order of a pepperoni pizza. When I arrived, I was greeted with smiles, hellos, offered water and tea. I actually got to watch them make my pizza. I was concerned at first thinking, I called this in, why isn't it done, but it only took five minutes to make. They use fresh dough, fresh homemade sauce, and using the pizza oven took no more than five minutes. I will be back here many times for sure....totally impressed.

    Yelpers get it right again! The SO and I decided on Salad and Pizza before settling in for a night of disk 1, season 3 of WEEDS. So we head over to Pizza A Metro after a quick yelp search and cruise through the "wes-side" of Phoenix. Pulled up to a mini-strip mall with a Circle K and a unisex hair salon which created great interest for us because we love "off the beaten path" kind of places. We step in, notice a very clean interior with a very nice staff too-boot.Take a gander at the menu and decide on the Antipasto della Casa for starters and the Frescolina fresh Pizza. As we're waiting for our Antipasto, we're served warm flat bread and a spread that appeared to be onions, olives, and peppers. It was great! We were again greeting by the owner who exchanges small talk throughout our night adding to our great evening out. The Antipasto was an amazing array of olives, peppers, basil, fresh mozzarella, prosciutto,and eggplant. It was almost too pretty to eat and more than enough for the two of us. Next was the Frescolina Pizza. Man this was one killer pizza! Tomato, mozzarella, prosciutto, and arugula, the perfect layer of flavor. The sweetness of the sauce, saltiness of the prosciutto, and the peppery/bitterness of the arugula made for a perfect blend. Wait, the crust! This crust was beyond real and there were no ends left on our plates. Now that's great crust! So we both agreed this was one hell-of-a place and we are going to be making our way through the menu along with our standing date with our next in queue Netflix-flick!

    Really, where else can you go and buy a delicious, thin charred crust, meter long pizza? It ranks among the top few pizza places in the valley such as Bianco and Cibo. Don't blink driving by or be thrown off by the 7-Eleven adjacent or you will miss it! A must try pizza locale for sure!

  • Dave B.

    Fucking GREAT pizza! This place rivals Cibo for my favorite pizza in town. I had a cheese and peperoni pie. The peperoni was spicy but not over riding so. That sauce was very fruity, the crust perfectly crispy yet soft and flexible. Wow. The restaurant is very small and tucked into a dirty little strip mall but the inside is nice. If you love pizza I think you'll LOVE this place. YUM!

    Outstanding - I wish I had more time to write reviews of all the places I go - but I just wanted to share a quick review - in a nutshell - definitely a go to place! Yes, the area is kind of shady - and its in a seedy little strip mall - but come on - if you are an adult then get over it. Food was great, service wonderful and accomodating. Only "negative" was there isn't a bar you can sit at while waiting for your table. We sat outside at the little table on the sidewalk and had a drink, The owner told us that the crowd in the rest of the little stip mall wasn't the classiest. It was totally fine. I never saw the bill so I can't say for sure what the pricing was. I am pretty sure it should be 2 $ signs. Some reviews say BYOB - but those reviews are very old and I think before the current owner. You do not need to BYOB/W
