Time Out Israel in 2014 voted Tony Vespa the best pizza in the city, and claims that no competitor comes close. We at EatDrinkTelAviv are friendly with the son of one of the investors that brought this pizza concept to Tel Aviv. He stated that the business was particularly keen on bringing the right Italian style brick ovens and using authentic ingredients. While we can accept our friend may be a bit bias, he has never steered us wrong (e.g. Hummus Abu Adham)
Enjoy the simplicity the pizza joint offers. Indulge in one type, or fill a box with however many tempt your tastebuds.

Tony Vespa Pizza Rating
Pizza in Tel Aviv
The best things about having pizza by the weight is having as much or as little as you want. It all depends on how hungry, or how drunk you might be after a night of late night revelry in Tel Aviv. With so much to choose from you will be happy to know that Tony Vespa is open late. The two restaurants in Tel Aviv basically bookend Rothchild Boulvard. The North end of Tel Aviv on Dizengoff had a location, but it had closed down. This could be the increase in other fast-food pizza places offering up a similar by-weight selections. One thing to note is how silly the name is. One must wonder if the business-people that dreamt up the Vespa style pizza place took two stereotypical Italian things “a Name” and “their popular small scooter” and started a pizza revolution?
What’s next? When walking around the streets of Tel Aviv, one will always be surprised by what eateries are called. With the presence of Hebrew and English languages, a penchant for play on words, nostalgic references and more — we are sure Israelis will figure it out.
