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,
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
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.
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!
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!
