I really appreciate that the Oven offers gluten-free crusts! My girlfriend can eat pizza again!!! The salads are great, the pizza is unique and made to specifications and they serve unreal seasonal pie. Their lemonade is the Real McCoy

My wife and I have made something of a tradition of dinner here before or after catching a movie in Belmar. The Oven really does have what is among the best, if not THE best pizza around Denver. Service is usually relaxed but competent, and they've got a nice wine list. Not sure about the reviews claiming this is expensive. Last time my wife and I were able to each get a personal pizza ,a glass of wine for her and a beer for me at about $25 for the both of us. Overall a great value.

Pros: Authentic pizza, good wine list

I cant believe I paid $35.00 with tip for a personal pizza, salad and a glass of house wine. The pizza was soggy with no flavor. I will never be back. Plus it was like dining in the school lunch room.

There aren't many truly great pizza places in Denver. There are some good ones, but until recently, nothing that really stood out. Now, we have Proto's and The Oven to add to the short list, which also includes Enzo's. The Oven is actually a chain out of Arizona and I usually eschew corporate owned restaurants. This is different, though. For starters, it's not corporate owned. The owner of Phoenix-based Tarbell's restaurant, which is organic, is the brain behind The Oven, which tends to use organic, local ingredients. The pizza is reminiscent of authentic Italian pizzas, but also seems to have something of a funky, California flair, because of the somewhat unusual, organic toppings. It is a small spot, located within a sprawling outdoor mall, but retains all of its indivdual character because of the friendly, quick service and the short, but interesting wine list.

Cons: Family style dining tables

We live in this area and had often smelled the aroma of the wood oven pizza being cooked. We stopped in for happy hour one day - the pizza is good and they have a lot of unique options. The salads are also good. Portions are small, wine is good, and prices are a little high.

Not only does the Oven have excellent pizza with perfectly cooked crust - they also have a good wine list and many options by the glass.

We sat at the pizza counter and watched them make pizza, salads, etc. The ingredients are so fresh - the mozzarella is not just bulk shredded but fresh. I will go here again and again.

The pizza was great (and the perfect size), the salad was good, the menu was kind of funny and entertaining, and the place felt very trendy and bustling. Only problem was that the waitress acted very rushed and was clearly annoyed if she had to give us more time to order or to to divy up the check. Unfortunately we left her a huge tip, which she didn't deserve.

A fine gem in Lakewood! We had a wonderful time and the food was out of this world. We were not disappointed. We noticed there was not an overzealous attempt to impress the customer, because food did it. Thanks Westword for the recommendation.

I absolutely love this place! My only complaint is that I wish they would open another Oven on the SE side of Denver.

I highly recommend starting your meal with one of their signature salads and a plate of fresh mozzarella. YUM!! I can't pick just one favorite pizza, as I've tried several here and never been disappointed.

If you bring your children, be sure to grab a bar stool by the ovens (so they can watch the pizza being made fresh) and ask for the kids meal. Children are presented with dough that they can sculp into little formations. The dough is later baked, coated with cinnamon sugar and served with a chocolate mousse for dessert.

Best authentic wood fired pizza in town!!

I went here on a co-workers recommendation and was not disappointed! The special of the day was fabulous! pancetta, carmelized onion and olive oil... simple but delicious! Extensive wines and a fun space - great patio in the summertime. Pricing was way more reasonable than i expected! I am definitely excited to go back soon!

Pros: great food, great wine, great space

Cons: could be hard to seat a large party

This is my take. The pizzas are small and thin with hardly any ingredients. The pizzas they list on the menu are more like cheese breads than real pizza. They don't have popular toppings. It's real real expensive for what you get. The best in pizza is probably Angelo's on East 6th Ave or maybe Wazee Supper Club in Lodo.

Editorial from

Although restaurateur Mark Tarbell opened this Belmar eatery with little pomp and circumstance, the food offered here creates quite a buzz. The cool and comfortable loft-like room is dominated by Uno and Due, two giant wood-burning…
