What do you think?  Are there any places in Fremont that have been overlooked as the best in the city?

    Problem is that Pagliacci's tastes like ass. It should be the other way around: Pizza that isn't Via Tribunali.

    See, I've always thought so too. And often wondered how they get on top of the list every year. There are so many better pizza places in this town.
    Zekes, IMHO, has the best pizza and the best delivery drivers.

    royal grinders isn't very good.

    azzurri vino bar has like 2 menu items. if by 'authentic' they mean 'runs electrical cords as trip hazards on public right of ways while televising minimally interesting italian football matches', then yes it's 'authentic'

    now if only fremont would get a bundesliga-oriented bar, we'd be set.
