For pizza take out, we've always liked Padrino's. Still do, really. But when you want to go out or just have a more interesting pie Olce is really fantastic. It is in a space that used to be a Curves but they've remodeled and converted the space into an inviting casual restaurant. It's right on Skippack Pike/73 near the intersection with Bustard Road.
The first time we went, a friend and I shared a Tinga pie which is made with chipotle chicken and tomatillo salsa. The pizza is wood fired and the crust is nice and thin. There are lots of other selections that I want to try, including one with artichoke and proscriutto and another with Brussels sprouts.
On a return visit we had the chicken barbecue pizza and tried one of their dessert pizzas. They make plenty of more traditional pies as well as a few sandwiches and some entree salads. The menu changes seasonally and it looks like we just missed the clam pizza one of my favorites! I had a wonderful wedge salad and also a carrot soup that was outstanding.
They are really cooking. The food is very fresh, and the servers are happy and energetic. I visited with my son and he was interested in a dessert pizza but it was much too large for us even planning on leftovers so the server offered a sample sized version. My son got to try the S'mores pizza with graham cracker crumbs, chocolate and marshmallows. I'm not a fan of sweets but it was really good, covered in perfectly toasted marshmallows.
Olce is a BYOB and very family friendly. It is a more pleasant and relaxing environment than most pizza joints and idea for lunch with the girls, dinner as a family or date night before a movie.
