This beautiful looking pie costed me $23, but worth every penny. This was their small pie, but I could easily have eaten the whole thing alone. The crust, sauce and hint of cheese was all straight heavenly to me. This reminds me of a wood fired version of a pie from Johnny's of Mt Vernon. A must have

Like Dave and many of you, I love pizza! For many years, I eat it at least 3x a week. Having watched literally all of Dave's reviews over the years, and living in New York, I will travel to all of his 8.0+ scores in the tri state area. FYI, Dave and I probably share similar opinions between 55 and 60% of the time.. I am definitely a much tougher critic, as I don't get caught up in the personalities of the owners, which, particularly as of late (I'm sorry to say), impacts Dave's scores substantially, Let's face it, none of us are traveling long distances to make friends. We're traveling to eat good pizza! As far as Polpettina, the owner is a former pizza maker at John's in Mount Vernon, which I really enjoy (8.4), but whatever he learned working there, he clearly left it behind. Unlike John's of Bleecker, Papa's Tomato Pie, and Defara's, (just to name a few) where eating the crust, is of itself a treat. Polpettina, fails miserably. While thin with a decent crisp, it is far from tasty. The sauce, which for me is the key to any great pizza, is about as bland as it gets. In fact, it has no taste whatsoever. If you live locally, I can understand coming here as it is definitely people friendly, and has a cool trendy vibe to it,...but if it's good pizza you want and are traveling for ...don't bother coming here. New Haven isn't that much further away. My "TAKES MORE THAN 1 BITE SCORE"...I struggle to even give Polpettina a 6.9!

Great Neapolitan pizza. Some of the best you’ll find in west Chester.

This is delicious pizza. Crisp, wafer thin crust. Zero grease. Delicious, clean sauce. Very light. I got a large with the intention to eat it for both lunch and dinner, and I ate basically the whole thing in one shot.

Anything above a 6 on this is a rookie score. Insane Flop, way too much sauce that isn’t even good. Crust is alright. Do better

Thin and crispy, cheese on the bottom, just the way I like it.
