    Did someone at Zavino drop the ball on the liquor license? I don’t recall any restaurant waiting this long for approval.

    Folks, you have t be kidding me about Zavino. I’m sorry but it’s not very good. The dough is so so, and the quality of thier Pizza Margherita is god-awful. Everyone’s is trying to make a quick buck off of Neapolitan style pizza lately and it’s not working here in Philly. He4re’s a thought maybe they should atleast learn how neapolitan pizza should be made. The best places thus far are in NYC. Check out Numero 28, Keste and even Motrino are good. Una Pizza Napolitana was the best but unfortunately they moved their business out west. I have tried Stella an it’s the best we have to offer here in Philly but nothing to write home about. I’m just being honest here. Having lived in Naples it’s extremely tough to replicate but these places don’t even come close.
