Savoia pizzas - price hike

Nehna | Apr 8, 2008 05:25 PM

Wow...I haven't had a pizza delivered from Savoia in some time, and my menu is pretty old. Anyway I ordered a Diavola personal pizza tonight to be delivered. The menu says $13.50. The only menu pages menu says $13.95.

Imagine my surprise when it came to the door as a whopping $16.50 + tax. This, mind you, is for a 4 slice small pizza with a little sopressata, and a sprinkling of olives. Oddly, when I called to confirm the price (surprised as I was), they said $15.95...which is less than $16.50 and confusing but not worth arguing about. The man who answered said something about a price hike a couple of months ago to do the weakness of the dollar vs the Euro (??). I know that Sam's has raised pizza prices due to flour pricing going up but...

Anyway, I'm really surprised and felt more than a little ripped off considering what arrived. It also wasnt nearly as tasty as I remembered it being. The cheese was bland, the sauce unremarkable, and the olives have an odd after taste. About the only good thing I can say for it is the sopressata is nicely spicy.

Crossing this off my list.
