The problem with this pizza is that after you have it, you begin craving it for your next meal. I have been going to Olivella's for three years now. It is consistent and has better flavor and texture than any pizza I have ever had. Two

Definitely, one of the better pizza places in DFW- no question about it. However, there is one other place serving authentic neopolitan pies that we clearly like better (don't know if I can/should mention the name here because I don't

This is a small little brick oven pizza place. They have wonderful salads to add in a healthy option. Don't know that I'd eat in, it's awfully busy in rush hours. Lunch is great though.

My friends and I just found this place. If you think you'll miss it, it's tucked behind a hamburger joint by SMU. And speaking of SMU, the well trained SMU servers are charming and professional. The Observer is right for calling it "The best pizza in Dallas", nothing is in Olivella's league. What I liked the most is their afternoon happy hour special where you can buy 1 metro (their large ) pizza and get a second of equal or lesser value FREE. ---2:30 to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday. We got lucky enough to be there during that time and I can't wait to go back.

Pros: Incredible food, good looking and attentive staff

Cons: Have to wait sometimes

Is it really possible that we have a pizza place in Dallas that Rachael Ray ranked as one of the best in the country? Does the Pizza live up to its billing?
Not only the thin pizza ( Roman and Neopolitan styles ) but the lasagna is like my Grandmas'-- bellissimo ! --and the sandwiches are out of this world ! For less that $10 you can get the best sandwich in dallas and a fresh garden salad. What's not to like about this place?

Best Pizza dough I have ever had. We eat there a couple times a week and I never feel bloated, but always plenty full. My girlfriend and I love it because it's romantic, fun, and definately the real deal. I am going to keep telling my friends about it. Oh and I ran into the Owner while we were there last time, and they have a new location opening up in late Spring near the American Airlines Center Downtown. We will have to go by there before a game.

Pros: Great Place to take a date. The dough is out of this world

Cons: Gets crowded sometimes.

This is as good as any pizza I have had in this country. I grew up in NYC and travelled Italy and Europe heavily, and I can find no comparison anywhere. Homemade mozzarella daily, tomatoes imported from Italy for the secret sauce, traditional wood burning oven, I just cannot say enough. You have to get over there. The wait is well worth it.

Cons: Small and sometimes a wait for a table.

There is no other pizza in Dallas that compares. Anyone who knows Pizza will tell you the same.

Pros: Cozy atmosphere Friendly service staff, Lots of hustle

Cons: Sometimes a small wait for a seat ; the place is so intimate

I ordered a couple metro (their largest) which they state serves 2-3 people. I guess they meant 2-3 kids as even I could have finished one of their pizzas (5'5, 115lbs woman). The toppings were skimpy so even if they were the "best quality"; they couldn't have cost more than a dollar. The crust was burnt and the pizza was cold upon arrival. I ended up ordering Papa Johns for my other guests. I can't believe this place is still in business. I have been to Italy many times; and even over there they wouldn't charge so much for such a pizza. To make matters worse, they put a buy one get one free coupon on the top of my pizza boxes...just to let me know the margins they make off of people like me!

Pros: little restaurant

Cons: Way overpriced; $22 for a pizza that serves 1-2 people

The pizza here is pretty decent for Dallas but unfortunately the place just lacks some ambience and not near enough room makes it difficult to enjoy. I hear that a new one is being built in Victory maybe they will get it right at that location.

Pros: Decent pizza

Cons: lacks ambience and space

Way overrated. Crust had charred areas. It was like crunching on charcoal, and also very pricey. I can find better elsewhere.

Every time I visit my parents in Dallas from NYC we go to Olivella's. It's one of the few places that really reminds me of the quality and authentic atmosphere one regularly enjoys in New York and various European cities. The portion sizes are appropriately small, probably something unusual around here as most everything else seems super-sized. Fresh ingredients and nice recipe truly reminiscent of real Neo pizza. Yum!

I think the people who dislike Olivella's are the same fanny packers who I see herding into the Olive Garden-copies in the tourist trap of Little Italy!

This is the SMU/ CHUCKY CHEESE of the area...awful! No one running the place on a Saturday night was over 18. The cook wipes his sweat on his hands and on his apron and his sidekick picks his nose and cuts the pizzas...disgusting. The guy "in the back" was really scary and very weird and dirty...and ALL this for $70. for 2 people. I WILL NEVER GO HERE AGAIN. Where are the owners on a Saturday night? This is such a bad Mom & Pop operation.

Really close to Lovers lane, this is a small place with the greatest pizza I ever had. Good Italian taste, and perfect combination between veggies and meat.

Olivella's is awesome! In Dallas, it's as close to NY pizza as you are gonna get! Reasonably price. Eat in or take out, either way the pizza is great. I go there everytime I am in Dallas!

The place is tiny and cramped which I assume is part of its charm. The actual pies are of good quality, surprisingly so since Dallas is not known for having many great pizza places. Naturally, the ingredients they use are of good quality too, whether it's provolone, prosciutto, peppers, arugula, etc. I especially like the nicely charred crust. Their pizzas are very rustic so they don't travel well. They are best eaten there. The staff is young and the quality of the service is either up or down. Some are attentive and personable, while others obviously wish they were somewhere else. The biggest turnoff I found is the owner Charlie Green. On two separate interactions with him, I found him to be brusque and borderline rude. My wife and I refuse to go back for this reason.
