You wanna pizza me?
Originally I was not going to write a review of this place because I didn’t feel my trip warranted one but here we go anyway…
Vesta Wood Fired Pizza is located at 64 Hoboken Rd, East Rutherford, NJ 07073. It is obviously a wood fire pizza place with some other traditional Italian dishes, served to you in a “rustic” setting. I think a lot of places miss-use the word rustic but whatever, here is the ceiling.
It’s very pretty. This place wood be ideal for small receptions like baby showers and bridal showers. They do rent out space so, check it out. The lighting is also nice here.
I received complementary bread, which is always a great way to get to my heart. The bread could have used a little bit more salt and slightly more proving before going in the oven, but the crust was nice.
This is the White Pie it had your usual fresh mozzarella, ricotta, parmigiano, fresh basil, extra virgin olive oil. The crust was amazing but come on, this is an Italian eatery, I would not expect less. However, I did find the pie to be a little bland. This pie was almost perfect, the lack of flavors let it down.
This is the Meatball Pie consisting of, crumbled meatballs, fresh mozzarella, kalamata olives, caramelized onions, marinara, oregano, parmigiano. These flavors worked very well together, I just wish it had been executed better. Meaning the olives could have been chopped up, the meatball could have been more spread out, the onions could have been sliced thinner, and there was an overwhelming amount of sauce, but it tasted excellent.
Overall this place is great for a quick bite or a family dinner. I’d give it s 3.5 out of 5!
