For a taste of outstanding Key West pizza and casual Italian cuisine, you’ll first have to find the little alley off Duval Street

Alley off Duval Street where OnlyWood is located
Alley off Duval Street where OnlyWood is located

Believe it or not, there was a time, albeit long ago, when it was nearly impossible to find a great Key West version of three of life’s most important things: pizza, bagels, and live music. Fortunately, great pizza and great music are abundant on the island (alas, you can still only get a “good” bagel). In the top tier of Key West pizza would have to be OnlyWood.

Tucked away on a hidden lane off Duval Street, this quaint and casual indoor/outdoor restaurant serves authentic Neapolitan pizza, cooked in an immense wood-fired brick oven imported from Italy, along with the highest quality Italian ingredients. House-made mozzarella cheese, a 1000-degree oven, and imported ingredients combine to make a thin-crusted, crunchy, delicious pie.

The high quality continues throughout the menu, with pasta, appetizers, and main courses that will have you convinced you are in Italy. As a result, OnlyWood is on the “Our Favorites” list of Key West Travel Guide.
