I had the chance to go downtown to try Benny Vitali’s pizza shop. It was incredible! When I first walked in, I could see the countertop with the massive pizza ovens behind. The staff was working at incredible fast pace. The menu was simple and not many selections. But once I got my food I realize there was no need to have a huge selection.
I set at the counter top and watched the cooks as they put these massive pizzas in the oven. It seemed like in no time they were done. When they pulled them out of the oven the cheese was melted perfectly and when they cut them it took up two full paper plates. The crust was crisp but with a slight bend. I chose to cut it with a knife and use of work until I could get towards the middle. For those that were around Fredericksburg in the 1970s it was a place in Parking Shop call Les’s pizza. The pizza reminded me of that. (It also reminded me of pong. That’s where I played my first video game.)
It was all I could do to eat my slice of pizza. They had several different cans and bottles of soda but did not offer fountain drinks. The line quickly backed up to the door. But no one seemed to mind as the pizzas came out of the oven very quickly. Everyone was amazed at the size of the slices. I think Benny Vitali’s have hit on something awesome down there. Everyone knows “do one thing and do it well.” I don’t think you’ll see any chicken fingers subs or anything else on the menu down there. Benny Vitali’s have found their niche downtown Fredericksburg.
