I had been looking forward to trying Keste for weeks and sadly was very disappointed. As another reviewer noted, we found the sauce extremely salty and the pizza very soggy in the center with the crust burnt. Won't go back.
high expectations but i was disappointed

Great location, nice decor and a friendly, attentive wait staff. The tables are packed awfully closely together, so much so that you have to move them to squeeze by, definitely not the type of place for an intimate dinner. Looking over the menu I was initially really excited because the names of the pizzas and the ingredients used were all very reminiscent of Italy, Unfortunately the final product was poor but I think they just need the owner to get into that kitchen and whip some people into shape. The toppings were very good, fresh basil, italian sausage and fresh mozza but otherwise the pizza was very sloppily made. The sauce was very heavily salted which detracted from the other flavors. The crust was wet and soggy, as if someone had put the sauce on it and then let it sit, which was odd because they burned the crap out of the pizza they served me so it SHOULD have been crisp. So imagine a salty, burnt sloppy mess with great toppings and that was my lunch. They have promise, hopefully they get their act together
delicious neapolitan pizza!

I have been eating here since they opened and honestly, it only gets better every time I go. Their special burrata pizza, which isn't on the menu, is absolutely incredible. I also love the splash of olive oil in the center- just like pizza I've had in Italy. The waitstaff is friendly and informative and i'm happy to call this my new neighborhood haunt!

Solid food, loud atmosphere

Went last night. Del Re pizza was delicious - we were sad it was finished. The Pomodorini and Toscana salad were solid but forgettable. REALLY loud - we couln't get the bill fast enough. Authentic staff who tried hard, very charming. I'd probably get it to-go next time.
Pretty good...already a line forming on Saturday!

there was a line forming already on Saturday at 2pm, not too long about 10 min wait. I had the regina margherita; the dough is very light, but the basil was haphazardly thrown on (only 2 pieces too!) and the buffalo milk mozarella was not that sweet. Overall, delicious. The best part was the dessert!!! i had limoncello panna cotta...so delicious!
The real thing!
