'Oakwood Pizza Box' Brings Slices And Pies To OakwoodPhoto: Ron W./Yelp

If pizza is what you're after, look no further than this new business. The fresh arrival to Oakwood, called Oakwood Pizza Box, is located at 610 N Person St.

This new pizzeria comes from Anthony Guerra—whose family also ran the now shuttered Bella Mia—and is serving up a simple menu with full pies to go, or pizza by the slice. There's also a small seating area if you plan to dine in, but the new spot is optimized for take-out. 

There are two styles of pizza available: the red sauce with mozzarella and basil; and the white with mozzarella, ricotta, garlic and basil. As for toppings, there are ten on offer, such as pepperoni, meatball, peppers, olives, greens and more. (You can check out the full menu here.)

With a 4.5-star rating out of 14 reviews on Yelp so far, the newcomer has been warmly received by patrons.

Carrie A., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on September 21st, said: "The pizza here is great! So glad to have them in the neighborhood! The service was very friendly and the owner came over to check on how we were doing. Highly recommend!"

Yelper Anila Y. added: “Great addition to Historic Oakwood! Location is great, but this is definitely more of a take-out place, as the space is very small.”

And Holly K. said: "Oakwood Pizza Box is an awesome addition to Person Street! The space is small but they were able to fit in quite a few booths back to back and a bar area. I loved the old school pizzeria booth."

Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: Oakwood Pizza Box is open Wednesday and Thursday from 5pm–10pm, Friday and Saturday from 5pm–11pm, and Sunday from noon–2pm. (It's closed on Monday and Tuesday.)
