Delicious food + very good service

We had 4 different types of (thin crust) pizza, including the night's special, and all were fresh and satisfying. Before the pizza, we had excellent meat balls and bruschetta. Service was very good, and the place was alive! We walked in a little after 6pm and had no wait for a table for the four of... read more

Pizza was good - great assortment of craft beers. Sat at the bar. Not a lot of flex in the menu for the pizzas - would have preferred that. Could remove things but couldn't add them to the pizzas. Interesting crowd

The pizzas are inventive and cooked in a large oven. I definitely recommend this place + you can see live music in the attached "Space".

I would recommend that you try a little of every kind of pizza they have, each one has something to offer and are so delicious. The drinks are yummy too! The cozy ambience, good acoustics and comfortable decor make for a good evening drinks place.

I liked that most items could be ordered as half or whole portions. The whole portion was good for two people to share, if you both agree to eat the same thing. Otherwise those half potions come in handy. Even though the restaurant was crowded, the service was ex spelling. We liked sitting on the couches and chairs part of... More

Charming fun place with sofas, a wood burning oven & lively dining room (though tables are placed very close together, so not great for privacy). Excellent knowledgeable service! Great Food at reasonable prices... from the huge variety of pizzas, specials of the day to the small plates! A few fav's: Eggplant caponata - wow, Shrimp & grits - full of... More

One of our favorite "nice" places to visit for cocktails, caesar salad, mussels, and whatever else hits our fancy. (Pizza good too, but we've only chosen that once.) We like the seats near the bar to eat and people watch. Been there maybe five times now. Service sometimes amazing, usually at least good.

Ate a margarita pizza and eggplant bruschetta here. The room is cavernous, loud and fun Evanston space. We didn't realize the concert venue is inside restaurant and with a 7:00pm start, we found the restaurant overcrowded at 6:00pm. We waited 45 minutes but it was worth it! There is a large bar and sofas and chairs to sit in to... More

This is a casual, fun restaurant in Evanston. The food is great and reasonably priced. It's a great for sharing lots of fun small plates and wonderful gourmet pizzas. The bar is always full and the staff is great. There is also a concert venue in the back. This is a place that many other restaurants try to emulate but... More
