The geniuses behind Blues City Deli are now bringing their food excellence to the pizza pie with this small Neapolitan-style pizza joint.
Located in a converted garage right next to the Deli, the interior is so small customers must stand along wooden counters lining the wall. There’s almost no indoor seating, so this is a grab-and-go place unless the weather is nice enough to enjoy the patio, which is made lovely by string lighting and old-school music. The plates, cups, and silverware are of the disposable variety.
Authenticity - from the straight-from-Italy recipes to the blue-tiled oven shipped from Naples.
Dare we say, this is some of the best Neapolitan style pizza in town. With just five varieties of pie on the menu and limited hours (check Facebook for the most up-to-date weekly hours), Melo prizes quality over quantity. With their delicious thin-crust pies and laidback neighborhood feel, you’ll be happy they do.
