Va Bene Pizza: "Very not okay."

Va Bene Pizza sucks! But they were listening to on the radio, which is one of those stations that only sounds cool in a pizza parlor. I was really pumped on the music when we were in here, and asked them what station it was. Since last week I have tried to listen to it at home a dozen times and it never sounds any good. This place also has crazy colored walls that made all of our heads hurt.

Seriously. Meredith walked in this place, and was like, " one of the first things I learned in high school science class was that when you combine certain colors it has adverse effects on the brain. Bright green and bright red like this is like, the biggest one. This color combination gives people headaches!"

This slice was bad. There wasn't enough sauce, and it tasted fucking GROSS. At first there was seemingly no grease at all, but then suddenly the grease was running down my face and hands in torrents, like an old faithful of fattening liquid. The dough tasted like white bread. Logan said, "there's kind of a pastry thing going on." All in all, this slice was pretty crummy. Still pizza, but crummy. I wish it was good because the guys in here were sweet as anything and like I said, the music was great.

  1. Hey S.H., just wanted to drop a note to say that I am continuously impressed by your devotion to pizza and this blog which I can always count on for a slice and a laugh.

  2. This place is closed and has reopened under a new name with new owners. Come check out Cowboy Pizza. Redid the dining room so those awful colors are now gone.
