My husband came back from work at camp with a bad cold and the last thing he wanted to do was cook dinner. I wasn’t much more interested after a long week at work.
We still have a gift-certificate for Giorgio’s that needs to be used but the idea of sitting in a restaurant was not too appealing to him either.
Luckily, earlier that day a colleague had mentioned Red Devil Pizza. Other than a brief comment on this blog, I didn’t really know what it is – other than the obvious.. pizza.
That sounded good to me, so we ordered for pickup.
The Red Devil Pizza provides food for the Towne club lounge in the Town & Mountain hotel. The night we ordered.. it was busy in there.
Because of the hectic nature inside, I’m not surprised that our pizza took a little longer than expected.
I chatted with some Australians sitting at the bar as I waited for the pizza. They said that in the short time they had been there, quite a few pizzas had been brought out. “They must be good,” he added.
So, was it?
I think so!
I want to say it’s not quite Bocelli’s but am afraid my sadness of their closure has elevated their pizza to levels far beyond my actual tastes. But I can see the Epic Pizza comparison in terms of crust, topping allocation and flavour.
If I could offer one piece of advice: More garlic. 🙂
That said, the caramelized onions on our Downtown pizza (pepperoni, mushrooms, caramelized onions, black olives, green peppers) were delightful.

It didn’t have a marbled crust, but was otherwise well-cooked.
Despite his illness, my husband ate half the pizza that night. So it must have been good!
Likelihood of return visit: High – it is an easy option for pizza if I want to pick it up on my way home from work.
