Pizzaria Bianco

41. Pizzeria Bianco

Who says pizza can't be fancy? Chef Chris Bianco, winner of a James Beard Award, raises pizza to a delicious new level with his much-lauded restaurant Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix. Wood-fired pizza, fresh ingredients and homemade mozzarella cheese create unforgettable flavors with a simple menu. The restaurant itself is small, seating approximately 42 people at a time.  As a result, guests should expect long wait times. However, the national attention and local popularity of Bianco's pizza has proven that the food is worth the wait. Reservations can only be made for parties of six to 10; otherwise seating is first-come, first-served.
