So tonight the wife and I and another couple are going to Pizzeria Bianco.
You know..rated the best Pizza in the U.S., hour long waits but is supppose to be worth it.

So who here has been there?
What were your thoughts? Worth the wait?

Thanks :thumbsup:

Bring reading materials....

I've been once, and personally, I'm not sure what the hype is. It's not what I think of when I think of Pizza (but then again, the best pizza I ever had was from some hole in the wall in NYC). But I guess it's something you have to experience.

But yes, the wait is hella long. Thankfully there is a house right next door to have some beers while you wait.

It was pretty darn good, but not worth the two hour wait. When all was said and done...it was still just a pizza.

Gayle from Oprah did a segment on the place a few weeks back and it was on Yahoo's start page yesterday so enjoy your extra long wait.

I'm going because it was on the Oprah show.

JUST KIDDING!

Cool, I've heard as long as you have good people to hang around with then it's not so bad. I'll for sure grab a couple of beers next door.

You're talking about the Bar-Bianco next door, right Skinny-Tire?
You make it sound like a little house in a dirt lot that you went over to and they were hanging out outside drinking Old-Style and they gave you one :)

Yea, the place right next door. They (the restaurant and the bar) are both old houses yes?

Oh, and since you seem the type, there is a really cute little tea house across from the restaurant too :)

If their pizza was that good they'd have Take Out. Like Grimaldi's Pizza now that's good pizza and no hour wait.
I've had Grimaldi's and that is VERY good pizza :thumbsup:
We're on a mission to try Arizona's bomb-a$$ pizzas, so we've obviously gotta hit up PB.

I think you can make a reservation if you have six or more people. Give em a call. If not the bar is a pretty chill place to wait, nice patio. Try the prosciutto and the goat cheese with bread appetizers... goes together pretty good and will keep you held over for the 2 hour wait. The bartender with the shaved head is cool, he knows a lot bout beers and wines and he's a mountain biker, or at least used to be before he had a kid and got sand in his vag. It's worth it, just be positive about the situation.:thumbsup:

yeah, we don't have 6. We thought about making a reservation and then grabbing a couple of strangers in line to make it 6, I'm sure they'd sit at our table instead of waiting.

I went there when they first opened and the waits weren't too bad. Had a few classes downtown when I was in grad school. It was really cool to go there after class and hang out.

Way too crowded now.

I'm not sure why there's so much hype or the long waits for just pizza, but then again I've waited at Oreganos with a large group for an hour and felt it was worth it.
Comparing the two, I'd give Oreganos the nod. Then again I don't watch Opra.
Post up an after dinner report to truly make it a World Class experience!

I have not had pizza in probably over a year. That is, until last weekend. I was at the grocery store, and picked up a frozen KPC, and it actually was pretty good.

what's a KPC.

Not had pizza in over a year? Wow, I don't think that I could survive a month without a slice of heaven.

I REALLY liked the pizza there. The wait sucked but the bar next door makes it a pretty pleasant wait. Come to think of it though, we chilled on the patio during nice weather, no patio this time of year :madmax:
