Hidden Gem

I have been going to this place for over 23 years. The owners are a very friendly family who make everything from scratch. The pizza is the best in the city at a great price. I really recommend this place.

What A Pizza Should Be

So, me and my granddad, Frank, were walking around down town (Simcoe & King area) looking for somewhere to get a bite to eat. So, he remembered this little pizzeria down on Celina St. I had passed by it many times myself, but had never actually eaten there. Well, we decided we'd give it a shot. We walked down there, and before we walk in, we kind of scope the place out. It looks like a small pizza joint from the outside. We step inside, and this is what we see: About 6 or 7 tables, all with chairs, some amazing paintings straight from Italy, and a little woman in the kitchen, kneading some dough. It took about 3 or 4 minutes before she realized we were there. She runs out to the counter, a darling smile on her face, and greets us as if we were the world's most renowned critics. So, we make our order (A deal seen on the little board outside- A large, 3 topping pizza for $13.99 + tax), and we check the place out a bit more. Something you cannot miss is the large, golden trophy sitting on the table behind the counter. I will definitely ask what they did to get it, next time. And, low and behold, it's actually a much bigger space than expected. That's because the little cafe beside it is actually PART of the restaurant! In this little part, there's some more fabulous paintings, a T.V. mounted on the wall, and a small bar. 20 minutes and a can of Coke later, she announced to us that the pizza was ready. We thanked her, paid, and left the restaurant with a smile following us from the owner. We walked back home, and even though we live a good 15 minutes away, when we set the box down on the table, it was still as hot as when we got it. We opened it up, and it was something I'd never experienced before. Mushrooms glistening from the steam, ham that had fused with the cheese, and ground beef that littered the surface was what we were welcomed to. And I kid you not, Frank, my granddad, actually said "Wow.". And wow was what should've been said. A smell of tomatoes and cheese filled the air, making our stomachs rumble and out mouths water. I had the first slice. It was heavenly. Now, let me put this out there. If you do not at first like the taste, then don't decide that you don't like it. Pompeii's Pizzeria makes the dough from scratch, uses a secret sauce recipe, and uses only the finest ingredients. You may only be used to Pizza Pizza, 241, or Little Ceaser's. What it is, is that you're just not accustomed to the greatness of eating fresh pizza. Give it time, and I assure you you will enjoy. Great food, a homestyle atmosphere, and a darling woman behind the counter, makes for one amazing little pizzeria. So, for all you readers out there, buon cibo, buon vino, buoni amici. Avere un meraviglioso pasto.

I really like this place. It is family owned and they are really great people to talk to. It is a little bit expensive... but nothing crazy. The pizza was fresh and very tasty. It is more 'authentic' (is there really such a thing?!) pizza... meaning a simple tomato sauce with fresh toppings. Myself, I prefer a thicker tomato sauce with a lot of flavour. I wish pizza places like this would offer a selection of sauces!

Too bad this place is in such a lousy area of the city. This mom and pop pizzeria is the best in Oshawa. Sauce is zesty and toppings plentiful. No cardboard here - dough is fresh and chewy. Would never stay and eat here but would recommend takeout or delivery. A little expensive but worth it.
