Had this pizza several years ago at a golf tournament off a truck and always wanted to try the actual restaurant - finally got here.
Top notch all around - service was quick and friendly, dining room is casual and clean and the pizza was fantastic - we tried three different kinds all were excellent as was the Caesar salad. Also loved the fresh basil plants in the kitchen.

You can't walk a mile in New Jersey without stumbling over half a dozen average, boring slices of American/New York-style pizza. Neapolitan style pizza, or as they call it in Italy, "actual pizza" is a revelation and puts to shame all those greasy slabs of bread and sauce you've been sadly eating for years. I loved Pizza Vita in Summit for years until tasting Lombardi's pizza. This is the genuine article and presented in a cool, laid-back setting. They grow their own basil, the wood fired oven is stocked by a woodpile outside the front door, and the ingredients are all beyond reproach. I am really stoked that they've diversified the menu and added pasta and some more interesting desserts like gelato (which is crazy-good). As for pizzas, the Nomad is my favorite, but any with spicy sausage is good too...really you can't make a bad choice.
The arancini are delicious, the salads are fresh and help to mitigate all the dough and cheese you are about to consume, and it's BYO so be sure to hit Spirits of the Valley just down the street for some beer/wine first! The wait staff is friendly and accommodating, even when the place is packed. I go with 3 year old in tow, so we usually show up right after they open...a good time to beat the crowds. We used to drive 25 minutes to come here, but recently moved a stone's throw away from this place...I'd be a liar if I said the pizza didn't play a part in the moving equation. This place would be labeled the best in NJ if people weren't so stuck on the nostalgia of those historic NJ pizza joints that we've all heard too much about. I'm still trying to convince my wife to hire their mobile pizza truck for a party, but it's a little pricey. Go here now, go often, and you will not be disappointed. Oh, and stop eating all that other horrible stuff posing as pizza!

This is really well-made pizza. I agree with other reviewers that it is a bit pricey for the pizza size.

We had excellent service (go at off-hours).

Best Pizza "Hands Down" in this area. We are usually here most Friday Nites. We love this place. We usually have to wait 20 mins or so for a table but it is always worth the wait. And, it's a BYOB!!!

After years of eating the BEST pizza in Italy, we have been searching for ANYTHING like it here in the US. We finally found it here in little Martinsville NJ!! This cute little pizzeria has been around for a couple of years and we just found out about it through friends that know the owner. They have a large wood burning oven and use the freshest and most authentic ingredients down to the flour for their pies. Thin well done crispy crust topped with just the right amount of ingredients. Wide variety of pies with specials. We were a big group so we ordered a large variety to taste and all were amazing!! Appetizers: Meatballs were almost as good as mine, bocconcini wrapped in prosciutto and lightly baked in the oven over baby arugula to die for! We didn't get to the others so we had room for pizza. They also had some authentic pasta dishes on the menu we will have to go back for another time. Its 20-25 minutes away from where we live but well worth the drive!!
