Casola's Pizza

2437 SW 17th Ave. Coral Gables, FL 33145 | Coral Gables/South Miami | 305-858-0090

Location Description:

Casola's has slices as big as your head. If you take two bites out of one, you can use it as a Halloween mask. Or if you order a wedge of loaded veggie, you can wear it as a fancy Kentucky Derby hat. And during hurricane season, a single triangle of pepperoni can act as a flood raft. Yet after one bite of a gooey $3.77 sliver at Casola's, you won't want to use it as anything but a meal. This unassuming Coconut Grove pizzeria, open since 1982, is so confident you'll fall in love with the authentic New York -style pizza that eternal free samples always sit, piping-hot, on the counter next to the cash registers. If you're feeling adventuresome, check out the Portuguesa pie, which includes toppings such as ham, pepperoni, olives, onions, green peppers, and egg ($19.99 for a 14-inch, $22.99 for a 16-inch, and $24.99 for a 20-inch). Also available are ostrich-size chicken wings, massive subs, pastas, salads, and gelati that lure customers all the way from West Palm Beach. Just be forewarned: Only cash is accepted. ATM machines are on the premises, but each transaction includes a fee, and who wants to throw away a buck or two when it can go toward extra toppings?
