I've been on a quest to find the best thin crust authentic Italian pizza in Calgary. Competitors were Posto, Una, Without Papers, and DLV Pizza. A friend had dined at Posto a few days before me, and spent $150 for dinner by ordering tapas. Her comment was fabulous, but pricy. Given that she didn't have pizza, I was under strict orders to check them out and report back.
Well, I'm happy to report that Posto is tied with Una at the top of my list for the best pizza I can find in Calgary.
I started by ordering a glass of wine from Puglia based mostly on the fact that you just never see Puglia wine on menus. Unfortunately they were out of it, so the server offered me another more expensive Italian wine for the same price. It was spectacular, but $17/glass wine generally is. For my pizza I had one with sausage, grilled rapini, and red onion. It was an exceptionally good pizza. The crust had some chew, but had a bit more rise around the edges than some of the crusts that are totally unleaven. The balance of the rapini (adding bitterness) and the sausage was excellent. Chili oil and rosemary oil were served as condiments, and to my surprise, the rosemary oil was the perfect addition (I'm not generally a rosemary fan).
My wine was so good I had a second glass, and lunch in general was so good that I had dessert, coffee and liqueur. Needless to say, my memories of dessert are somewhat cloudy. The only thing on offer for dessert was zeppole (mmmm, donuts) with chocolate sauce to dip them in. They were outstanding.
The accept reservations, and they're in an end of downtown that you can usually find free parking in if you know where to look and are willing to walk 4 or 5 blocks, and that's a huge selling feature compared to some competitors in this category.
