A different take on pizza

Wonderful small spot in downtown Halifax. Great decor, fabulous servers, amazing pizza. But don't expect the heavy crust, coated with sauce and cheese pizza. Here you will be treated to thin crust, wood fired from the oven brought from Italy. The toppings are fresh, local and seasonal. The four of... read more

Took a client to the Morris East Larry Utek location for a special lunch. Very disappointed. Embarassed, actually. Ordered salad and asked for substitution of blackened chicken as watching salt content. Waiter said chicken was pre-made, pre-seasoned. Uh? Really? Asked for suggestion- said could do ham! Hello waiter - ham is loaded with sodium, then he said would do a... More

The server was very friendly, and service was fast. The beer was good; my pizza (the enchilada) was a little dull, but my wife really liked hers (the veggie).

Ceasar Salad was quite blah. We had Pizzas and they were OK, not stellar. Service was excellent. Good local micro brewed beer

We made the mistake of ordering their Duo Dip with flatbread appetizer. It was delicious and filling for two, making the subsequent pizzas we ordered (1 per person will result in leftovers) unneeded. The house Fire Ale was excellent and smooth, BTW. Pepper oil is oil with a minimal amount of chili pepper dissolved, which adds more color than flavor.... More

My wife and I had been to Morris East before and were not pleased with, in particular, the gluten free pizza. The crust was so hard you could hardly cut it. So I wrote a review here and before I knew it the owner Jennie Dobbs contacted me and wanted us to give them another chance. She sent us a... More

Excellent fast friendly service. The wood fired pizza is fantastic made with fresh ingredients. I totally recommend the mushroom pizza, absolutely delicious! We ate at the Larry Uteck location and the decor is comfortable and inviting.

This was my second time to this restaurant and have noticed that their menu has grown in the past year. It is much more varried and the food is always good even though there is mostly healthy options at this place.

Delicious wood-fired pizza, and they're happy to add extra basil. They also have a partnership with Garrison Brewery with great draft beer. Small restaurant with tables outside in the summer. Pickup available with very quick service. Friendly, helpful staff.
