Dolce Vita Pizzeria Enoteca

500 Westheimer Rd. | Houston, TX 77006

This dinner-only eatery in Montrose specializes in crispy, authentic Neapolitan pizzas and small Italian plates.

Marco Wiles (Da Marco restaurant) brings his penchant for pizza to this casual, welcoming restaurant. The simple yet intriguing menu is based on authentic thin-crust Neapolitan pizzas and Italian antipasti. From a rocket-hot wood-burning oven handmade in Rome, the pizzas arrive crispy and slightly charred around the edges. Close to 20 kinds of pizzas are offered, with toppings like proscuitto, arugula, wild mushrooms and fresh herbs. A varied list of small dishes rounds out the menu.

For dessert, try a bowl of creamy gelato. Choose up to three flavors including Mexican vanilla and pistachio.
