Great atmosphere

I held a committee meeting in their private room; everything was great- The service, atmosphere plus the many choices of specialty pizzas/ salad. I have planned three work related dinner/meetings here in the last year plus my husband and I enjoy the dining room/patio atmosphere often.

My family stopped here on a Sunday evening and dined on the patio. It was quiet since all of the shops in this little square were closed for the day, but the weather was nice, and the pizza was delicious. We each had a salad and a pizza with meatballs. The service was fine. We topped dinner off with a... More

Friends and I were looking for a low key place to grab a bite of food and watch a soccer game, I called ahead and they were happy to put the game on their TVs. They have a good selection of wine at the bar and their pizza selection is great - it is a great place to explore a... More

We drove 1.5 house just to try this pizza, we will be driving it more often. We cannot wait until our next trip to try something different!

A nice change of pace when you're in the mood for quality pizza. The staff is quick to greet and seat while allowing plenty of time to decide on your meal.

The Pizza is absolutely delicious! I was nervous at first to stray from the typical pizza, but after tasting the "Waverly" pizza, it's all I ever want! Great food, reasonable price, friendly staff. Intimate setting, great for small groups or a couples night.

This is in the heart of the St. Matthew's area. Has outdoor area in front where people bring their cocktails and gather until they retrieve a table. My server was nice, and helpful. Timing was great at each visit to our table to check on us. The pizza was fabulous !! If you enjoy thin crust, you will love it... More

We understand it gets really busy in the evening but quiet on a Saturday for a late lunch. Great service from our waiter. Discussed various beers on tap on what we like and we were brought a couple of samples. We both got a Kentucky Bourdon Barrel Ale brewed by Alltech Brewing and Distilling Company in Lexington, KY.

Friends who live in Louisville took us here during a recent business trip. We had a great meal and a fun visit. The pizza was excellent. Not run of the mill, but upscale artisan pizza. The cheesy flatbread was a hit with the kids. Beer and wine choices were very good too. The menu was much more than pizza -... More
