We ordered and had it delivered to our hotel. Be warned...the 20 in is a monster!!! They used all fresh ingredients and even the garlic knots are real garlic...not powder! Just try not to stand near the person eating them long! Very good! I think there are two locations. We did not use the university one.

A hole in the wall but delicious pizza. We stopped in Las Cruces NM overnight on way home from AZ to TX, read reviews and decided to give it a try. I love the choices white pizza or tomato sauce, loved the choices of toppings. Service was good, it was a slow night on Friday after Thanksgiving.

Zaffiro's is a busy, somewhat noisy eatery, but we don't go there for its romantic atmosphere! Delicious pizzas , generous salads, and their bread is wonderful. Chunks of it are served along with a dish for adding olive oil and condiments - dipping while waiting for one's order. One sure sign of success -I've never seen it empty! Definitely not... More

Excellent pizza cooked in a wood burning oven. Gourmet pizza by the slice, and what a price. Also good for checking out the local college girls, who are always eating this delicious pizza.

The food is amazing. We had an asparagus, prosciutto, lemon pizza and it was delicious. I had spaghetti and meatballs. The pasta was homemade and the meatballs were very good. The place is very cozy.
