Ok, ok, ok, I'm not looking for a pizza debate. I simply wanted to say that we have a new pizza place in Ballantyne & it's NOT a chain t.G. They have only 3 locations including NYC. It's really nice looking inside, like a restaurant but you can get pizza by the slice, plain is only $2.25. If you click on their website they have a $5 coupon off anything good until 4/15. IMO I thought they had execellent pizza, tho I know it varies for everyone but I figured you want to know what I thought. Libretto's Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen | Manhattan, Charlotte, & Ballantyne

I enjoyed the slices I grabbed the other day. Will be back with the family at some point next week, once the opening day thing dies down. It was pretty crazy.

Near the UPS store, in the shopping center where the Harris Teeter is.

I know what you mean about that road: the first time I tried to go from BB+T to Providence Pediatrics in one trip did not end well. I am embarassed to say I got completely lost .

We moved last summer from NY.....have been looking for a great pizza place here in Charlotte. When we saw Libretto's opening, we had to try it, & called in an order. Upon arrival, they said it hadn't turned out right, something about a "hole in the middle" of it. (?????) So they proceeded to make another one, while we waited another 25 min. No discount was offered, not even a free soda thrown in for their mistake & our wait. Then when we got it home, found it to be dry, hardly any sauce on it, & the cheese was tasteless. The amount of toppings was sufficient (chopped onions), & the crust thick enough, but crust & onions don't make a good pizza. I could've made an onion sandwich for free at home, instead of wasting $20 there. Good luck, maybe they'll get better after they're open longer. For those of you still wanting to go there, Librettos is right across the driveway from the Rite Aid in the Harris Teeter part of John J Delaney Dr.

I always find it amazing that people ALWAYS come out of the woodwork when a pizza thread or a new business starts....

You'll never see them post before or after, but they'll make one post and trash a certain place...

I never take stock in those people. I really only take the word of people who've been posting for awhile..

I have not been to this place, but my quick test to determine if a place has good pizza or not is to look at the oven they are using. If it is a good quality old fashioned brick lined pizza oven where it takes some skill to cook with, then there is a good chance the place has good pizza. If it is one of those franchise places with pizza jockeys putting pizza on a conveyor belt oven, then it's most likely the pizza won't be that good and it will end up soggy in the middle. I hate soggy pizza.

Ingredients for good pizza are expensive now and going up every day. A good large pizza is going to cost upwards of 25 bucks these days. Less than that, and they are probably cutting corners.

Thanks for the heads up Chess! We are still new to the region and a good "non-chain" Pizza place is a welcome addition to the list of Places to try!
