Awesome

I love the pizza here. The room is super small and you feel pressured to eat quickly and leave when other patrons file in and want a seat. When it's not busy it's more comfortable and less stressful. The salad is also delicious. I love the option to buy a glass of wine or byob. Def a fav spot for... read more

Matt, who bakes the pizzas that his wife Melissa so skilfully creates are the best anywhere. I will say that without a doubt that they make the best pizza on earth in their wood fired stone oven one at a time with love. My wife and I went here for pizzas as was our Wednesday ritual every week for us.... More

NY Times called it "excellent", very high praise, absolutely justified. Ultra thin crust with texture and taste like no other. 10 seats inside with picnic tables outback for overflow. Reservations strongly recommended for seats inside. Dinner for four $125 with wine plus tip. Individual pies for each person, all different.

Everything was excellent, from the pizza to the house wine. The terms "farm to table" and "like in Italy" are usually overused and inaccurate but not here. It was wonderful food very reasonably priced.

We went there with a group of 8, called the night before and got reservations for a picnic table outside. We got a bunch of different pizzas and shared. The Bufalina was a big hit, we were just wishing for more of the insanely good cheese. (Would have paid for it too!) Some liked the clam, my favorite happened to... More

Brick oven charred pizza inspired by Southern Italy. All types of imaginative combinations, and a very homey place. All pizzas are individual sized, and hand crafted to perfection.

This is the third time I have dined here. It is a very small place with counter space for ~12 people inside. You can sit in the back on very tiny metal chairs and tables. My husband ordered the meat lovers pizza (Tre Carne) and loved it. I ordered the Bufalina with fresh mozzarella and anchovies. As usual the topping... More

This is by far an excellent brick oven pizza. Pizza's are a personal size, traditional and specialty types available...really delicious. A salad and cold drinks, beer. or wine available....BYOB is OK too. The husband wife team, who have extensively traveled Italy, provide a great dining experience. Seating is limited to 11+ so reservations are encouraged.

Matt and Melissa know their stuff and they showcase their ability each and every day they are open with their delicious pizzas. We just call in our order and eat it out and about Town but they have a cute little seating area inside that looks fun.

This is the true Neapolitan style, super thin crust, baked fast at high temperature pizza. The toppings are fresh, imaginative, and superb. In the winter, it's just a few seats at the counter, so it's tough. In the summer, the outdoor seating area is open, and that's the bomb. I have to say it's worth eating this pizza on-site, when...
