Maurizio’s Pizzeria


Dine-in or bring some pizza back to your rental – Maurizio’s Pizzeria is well worth the visit. Since it was founded in 2013, Maurizio’s Pizzeria has been changing the way people eat with their age-old craft of making wood-fired pizza and pairing unique flavors from around the world. Of course, you will get an authentic taste of Italy there.

12-inch meat, vegetarian, vegan, and inferno pizzas are on the menu. A little word of warning: You must sign a waiver at the pizzeria before buying one of the very spicy inferno pizzas, and you will have to verify your age in person.

For those who need to go gluten-free, a cauliflower crust can be made upon request.

If you are not feeling up for pizza, you can order a delicious wood-fired calzone or sandwich. Appetizers range from the Focaccia Romana to yummy garlic bread – all of which are also wood-fired. Pair it up with one of the cold beverages, including an Italian-style soda.
