If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you’ve probably figured out that I love pizza. I seem to eat it a lot, don’t I? Let’s recap.


I’ve had really good pizza at Dewey’s,

Not-so-good pizza at Imo’s and Katie’s Pizzeria,

And even out of town pizza at Giordano’s!

Well, recently, I visited another pizza joint.


Serra’s Pizzeria. It’s a cute little family owned and operated place in Maryland Heights, MO.

I visited on a Thursday night, and it was hopping! I didn’t take a picture of the huge crowd, because I didn’t want anyone to think I was a creeper Smile

You’re here for the food, anyway – right? Let’s get started!

We began with toasted ravioli with meat sauce – if you’re not familiar with toasted ravioli (I think it’s a St. Louis thing!), let me tell you a little about it.

Hmm…on second, thought, why don’t I just show you?


Lightly breaded and fried nuggets of awesomeness! Seriously, these were good – they might actually be the best toasted ravs I’ve had. Perfectly seasoned outside, piping hot middle…glorious. The meat dipping sauce was nice as well. I gobbled these down in no time! I could have made a meal out of this alone, honestly.

But there was pizza to be eaten! And I never turn down pizza.

I went with the Serra’s Supreme: it was a thin crust pizza topped with sausage, pepperoni, bacon, onion, and mushrooms. I added green peppers to get a little more veggie action going.


Oh my. This was good! I’m not a huge fan of thin crust pizza (You can blame Imo’s for that), but this was great! The crust was crispy without being cracker-like, and it didn’t fall apart or get soggy under the weight of the ingredients.

One great thing I’ve discovered about thin crust pizza? You can eat more of it! Well, you probably shouldn’t, but your tummy can fit more! Haha…I’m such a glutton. Smile

Service was friendly and efficient without being annoying or overbearing, which is nice.

My only complaint? The place smelled a little smoky (even though I didn’t see anyone smoking! Weird.) And it was…kinda dirty. Now I understand it was a busy night, but the carpets were absolutely atrocious. Looked like they hadn’t been vacuumed in days! Would it hurt to have clean carpets? It really grossed me out. The plus side? I got a good ab workout from keeping my feet off of the floor the entire time I was seated!


Score time!

Food: 4 stars (out of five)

Ambiance: 2 stars

Service: 3 stars

Value: 3 stars


Maryland Heights is a good 30 minute drive from where I live, so I’m not sure I’ll be back soon, but I wouldn’t turn down another trip. It was good!

  • I’ve never heard of Serra’s but I’ve been wanting to try Dewey’s so I’ll check out that entry! I am not huge on pizza, but I do like thin crust, and Peel Pizza here in E’Ville has AMAZING thin crust pizza!

    I made Toasted Rav replicas during my vegetarian week that were OMG GOOD. I like toasted ravs but am not a huge fan of the meat inside. I think I’d like them better if they were cheese-filled!

  • I love your blog. Geez. I’m such a foodie and seeing what restaurants are good is so wonderful!

    And my parents just brought home Deweys. I know you had a salad when you went, but their mushroom pizza is BOMB!

    I live right by here but have never been. You’ve convinced me! The reason why it was probably smoky is because rumor has it that this is the hangout of the Italian mafia, but I’d take that with a grain of salt. 🙂 Thanks for the post!
