Two Guys from Italy Pizza, Warwick RI

29 years I have lived in Warwick. There is Rocky Point Pizza, Brothers Oven, Conimicut Pizza, Picasso's, Georges (very good greek pizza) etc etc etc and I have tried them all. I have driven by 2 Guys thousands of times, I have had my haircut next door, I have eaten chinese food at Jade Dragon, same plaza, countless times. Tonight for reasons I cannot explain my SO and I decided to try 2 Guys for the first time.

We decided on delivery......looked online, no menu or website. We stuck to our plan and drove up, plaza was dead. Walked in and the place is dated and empty. Drinks came in plastic cups, they were out of the first appetizer we ordered, and then the garlic bread we ordered came in one of those cheap little green baskets. Despite the bad start and with some hesitation we decided to try the lasagna and a lg pizza all roni 1/2 sausage. Food came and the pizza was mis-shaped, the cheese wasnt all the way to the crust, some of the crust was a bit burnt from sauce being splashed on it......and let me tell you, it was one of the best pizzas I have had in awhile, and hands down the best thin crust style pizza in Warwick. The pepperoni's were curled up and charred on the edges, the sauce was slightly sweet and very tasty, the crust was thin yet crisp and not the slightest bit soggy. It reminded me of Pepe's in New Haven just without that coal-fired element/taste. The rest of the food was good, but the real winner here is the pizza.

As we were leaving we asked for a take-out/delivery menu, and in keeping with the rest of the evening they had run out. Nevertheless, we will be back to this diamond in the rough!
