    My favorite pizza in the world is Turoni's pizza in my hometown of Evansville, Indiana (<a href="/redir?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.turonis.com&s=cbf2fe195ae0a4cddab2a59c2acad7b2f5d67c014de8a77f938eb053c519f7a8" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.turonis.com</a>).  It comes on a thin, crisp, cracker-like crust.  And the toppings are always delicious.  I have found it a little hard to find a similarly delicious pizza since moving to Cincinnati three years ago.

    So it was while I was monkeying around on Google Maps looking for a pub/bar/burger joint somewhere near my house that I discovered the Newtown Village Tavern.  Quickly referencing Yelp to see if this was a location I should visit, I was surprised to see the rare overall 5 star rating, as well as raves about their pizza.  Better check it out.

    This is a tavern.  There is no other way to explain it.  It's small, but cozy.  In the main area there were only 3-4 tables (besides the bar) but there was another seating area in the back with a handful of tables.  My wife and I sat at the end of the bar and were waited on quickly and efficiently and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

    They had a pretty fair beer selection.  I had Moerlein IPA and my wife had the special which was $1 Miller Lite, served in a small plastic cup (not the IPA, just the Miller Lite).  They also had some Mt Carmel Brews, a couple seasonals, a couple imports, and the usual domestics.  This was just the draft selection.  

    We ordered fried zucchini, which was pretty much just as you would expect.  Fried zucchini, although the batter tasted like maybe it had some parmesan cheese mixed in to it.  Enjoyable.

    But really, the payoff was in the pizza.

    I can't put my finger on exactly what made this pizza so good.  They only offer thin crust, but it wasn't the crispy-thin of my favorite pizza joint.  We ordered a medium with ham, sausage, banana peppers and black olives.  The toppings were toppings, not the best I've ever had, but above average.  The sauce used was tasty, but I really feel like it was the cheese, which seemed richer than most cheeses.  Also it didn't seem inundated with the usual amount of grease.

    Whatever it may have been, it was absolutely delicious.  I would heartily recommend checking out this place if you live even vaguely nearby.  I guess some people might be put off by its size, as it is definitely a "neighborhood" joint, but it was very clean and family friendly.  I absolutely love the feel of places like this, where conversations can be held at a comfortable volume and both the food and drink are delicious and reasonably priced.

    Wow I completely agree with Jennifer G.  For the standard pizza category:  Newtown Village Tavern is the best pizza in Cincinnati.  They don't do crazy gormet style pizzas... but if you want just a regular supreme pizza or pepperoni or whatever you like, this is the place to go.  I also really like that they have a few local beers on tap, always good to see local supporting local.

    The staff was super friendly and open to new people even for being a local spot and they were quick with the pour and happy to assist with whatever we needed.

    We will totally be back: to sit on the patio, enjoy a nice cold Mt. Carmel brew on tap and split a pizza.
