We were favorably impressed by our first experience with Formaggio's Italian Bistro in Hoover. The people who answered the phone and delivered the pizza were very pleasant and helpful. The pizza itself had a nice thin crust, not overloaded with sauce or smothered with cheese. The sausage was cut into very thin slices instead of the more typical bulk sausage. The sauce was a bit on the salty side but had nice flavor, not bitter or too sweet. Canned mushrooms instead of fresh were the only disappointment. They have a rather extensive selection of pastas, calzones, sandwiches and other items, so we'll sample more of the menu and report back with a full review later.
