Iron Chef Michael Symon and Jonathan Sawyer may be among the most well-known Cleveland chefs nationally, but if you asked them about the Ohio pizzeria that deserves attention, they’d likely single out Vero Pizza Napoletana helmed by Marc Aurele. This Cleveland Neapolitan pizzeria (open Tuesday through Saturday until 10 p.m. and Sunday through 9 p.m. or until dough runs out) is serving a leopard-spot charred Neapolitan crust that should be the envy of many a Naples-obsessed American pizzaiolo. The 13 pies on the menu are garlic, sausage, and egg heavy — as if that’s something to complain about.  — Arthur Bovino, 8/27/2014

Named one of the The Daily Meal's 101 Best Pizzas in America in 2014.


  • Come for the pizza and stay for the gelato!!
  • Pizza and gelato of course! Mushroom salad was quite good as well. Love the new decor and pleasant staff
  • Crust is terrific and oven-fired baking makes it even better. Funghi and Picante are great non-meat options. Try the salads as a complement - beet salad is a solid standby.
  • Best pizza in all of Cleveland!
  • Coming from someone that frequents Neapolitan style pizza restaurants, this is very good. I had the plain margherita and it was very up to par. But, we had to wait a very long time, no AC and small.
  • The pizzas are the best in Cleveland, forget Little Italy. The Gelato is also fantastic
  • Have yet to have a subpar pizza here. They are all amazing. The gelato is easily the best in the area by far.
  • The best pizza hands down. The pizzas serve one to two people and are best eaten on site. Ambiance is fantastic & staff are friendly. Don't forget to check out the gelato before leaving!
  • Best pizza. This is not a build your own kind of place. Just order one of the selections. You will not be disappointed. Good charcuterie platter too.
  • One of the very few Neapolitan style pies in Cleveland. Soo good every time.
  • Pancetta pizza...enough said.
  • Yumm! Get the Funghi!
  • Great pizza & gelato
  • Pizzaaaaaaa
