My kids and I had a good experience. The quality of the ingredients was very high and the staff were very pleasant. my pizza was a little undercooked, but other than that everything was great. I would definitely return and may just ask for my pizza more well done. The manager was excellent and noticed my pouty face and made... More

When you go to get pizza you expect cripsy crust, gooey cheese, and great toppping. The crust was soggy and chewy, the cheese was non-exsistant, and the garlic was left in large cloves. I had a two full cloves of garlic on each slice of my individaul pizza.

Pizza was great, the concept is interesting as this is a place your order, do the leg work place, but all in all, the food was tasty, the salad crisp and cool and the wine was even on special the day we went in! You can choose to eat inside or carry out on to the terrace outside...Hard to beat!... More

Nice idea. We shared the salad and pizza special. The salad was greens with a few walnuts and drowned in dressing. The pizza sauce is unremarkable. I'm visiting from out of town and this is by far the least satisfying meal of the trip

Stopped by this restaurant due to the convenient location. I ordered their house salad and a pizza, which were fresh & delicious. The salad was so good it lead to another visit while I was in the area. I would recommend this restaurant to friends.

This will not become my favorite place for pizza but it was pretty good. The reason I say that is I do not really care for either of their sauces, one is very spicy and the other is very sweet.

Most people describe pizza places as being "like" this or that, and that simply won't work here. This is not like any other pizza in town, and that's a good thing! To appreciate the many differences, order it "smashed". This is the hotter version of their pizza sauce (an acceptable 3.5 on my Bald-head-sweat-o-meter) and really sets this pizza apart... More

The smash sauce is very good on your pizza. Good place to go for a salad and pizza (large enough to share).

Great brick oven pizza and chopped salad. My favorite is the Wood-Fire Artichoke Dip with the sheet music bread. Get the managers special for a great value!
