Tortugas Pizza

Reviewed By interceptpubs

Well, as far as we know, the only stuffed pizza in Birmingham. We haven't had it in over a decade since we moved away, but still fondly remember getting pies from their now defunct Pelham restaurant on a weekly basis. We were back in town for a weekend and stopped by to see if it was as good as we remember - it was. Ordered a 10" for carryout with pepperoni, Italian sausage, green peppers, and black and green olives. It was ready when they said it would be and tasted great as ever. Call us crazy, but we actually think like Tortuga's matches or beats any of the major Chicago pizzerias (Giordano's, Gino's East, Pizzeria Uno, etc.).

Italian food is amazing and varied. I lived and ate there for two years. I also grew up with Italians in New York. This place reminds me more of the latter than the former but Old World and New World can be wonderful. Who else serves veal these days? Excellent wine selection. Had a very delicious Ripasso. Ask for it. Waiter had a big personality but he knew his stuff. Low key dining, the best way to eat really fine Italian food. A bit pricey but worth it. The bar out back was a real find.
