Going to Junoon for dinner, we passed in front of Tappo and, as Jodi loves pizza, we decided to go there for lunch the next day. So here we are, on a Saturday for lunch, arriving at the moment they opened. We sat outside, enjoying the nice weather and gave our order. Then we waited, waited and waited. As they saw we started being impatient, they advised us that they gave priority to a delivery of 25 pies. Not very professional as they knew when we ordered that they had this order and should have told us that they had to take care of that, and so our pizza would be delayed. No, it was as if they were annoyed by our impatience. We had time and really wanted to try this place, hoping that the food would be worth the wait, dinner being packed. I thought it was just ok: for sure there were lots of toppings on it and the thin crust pizza was good but did not sweep me off my feet. For sure I prefer Neapolitan pizzas (if you never tried Luzzo's, go there!), but, if well executed, a thin crust pizza can be good, like at Marta. No, Tappo is not a place I would recommend for pizza for sure and not just because of the service. Next time, I’ll pass...
Here is what we tried:
Sodas: Jodi got a Shirley Temple and I got a root beer that I love to drink with pizza.
The first pie was the formaggio bianco, made with mozzarella, Parmesan, Pecorino Romano, ricotta and bechamel.
The second pizza was the Classica, composed of marinara sauce, fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil:
