Emilia's Pizzeria | Food

Last Friday I seriously had the best NY-style pie west of Brooklyn at Emilia's Pizzeria. My expectations were hyped up after reading this article and I wasn't disappointed. Berkeley has bred some excellent pizzerias over the years and if you're in the mood for something other than Zachary's or Cheeseboard, head over to Emilia's and give pizzaiolo/owner Keith Freilich some love. (FYI, I am in no way affiliated or compensated by Emilia's Pizzeria for this post - just passionate about good pizza!)

2 caveats:
1. Check out Emilia's site for updates as they do tend to run out of dough. 2. Be patient - Emilia's has only been open a week and so far he seems to be running the place solo. In any case, his pies are worth the wait.

Nat was a little groggy/cranky when we arrived.

pizzaiolo/owner Keith running the show solo. Look at the line!

We literally got the last 2 pies of the night. Here we are occupying 2 out of the 3 tables in the cozy dining area.

sausage and roasted red pepper. Our second pie was pepperoni - which was even better, if that's possible. It was so good that we scarfed it down before I could get a shot.

Stellar pizza turned Nat's frown upside down pretty quick!
