The restaurant's name, Visa-O1, says it all. An O-1 visa is reserved for "individuals with extraordinary ability," according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. So, yes, this pintsize Italian pizzeria hidden inside a South Beach office building thinks highly of its pies, and for good reason — they’re exceptional. Only the freshest ingredients and premium-quality cheeses (vegan cheese is offered at an additional charge) are allowed atop the thin-crusted, crisp pizzas served here. Both 13-inch and eight-inch pies are available for order (they also deliver), and there are even two varieties shaped like stars. You can’t go wrong with the classic Margherita, followed by a Nutella pizza for dessert, but if you’re feeling festive, opt for the Federica. This beauty features San Marzano sauce, mozzarella, ham, artichokes, fresh mushrooms, and black olives. Visa-O1 has only a handful of tables, but snagging a seat is worth the wait.
