Our Story.

Because Italian food is not a trend. It’s a way of life.

We have a love for simple fresh food, cooked in a traditional way of using authentic methods. Piza ē Vino’s food is rigorously Italian healthy and creative through this simplicity we believe that a winning formula has been discovered. Let your taste buds that long for great Italian food bring you to Piza ē Vino for that experience you have been longing for.

Italy draws you to thinking of playfully slurping up a bowl of spaghetti ragu and getting stuck in a steamy pizza with the perfect blend of the freshest harvested ingredients and a sacred/ age-old recipe to develop the perfect pizza base. Of course, there are the additional thoughts of washing everything down with some vino and driving in the streets of Italy on your Vespa.
