Not bad food

I went to fresh by default as it was Monday in Blackmountain and nothing else is open. There was one other couple other than us in the restaurant when my party entered. The food was OK service was quick on the choices were limited on beverage service and for what you got the price was a bit high.

Food and service were good. Food a bit over priced for what you get. Staff were friendly and it is entertaining to watch them cook pizza in a brick oven. It was not the best Italian but not the worst, slightly above average.

Our out of town guest found this place. My family lives in the local area. This was the first time my family had eaten here. I was absolutely delicious. All the veggies from the salad to the pizza was like it all had been just picked out back. It was amazing. I would recommend this to everyone. Only down side... More

Fresh has a large variety of pastas, pizzas, salads and even choices for those of us with dietary restrictions. There is indoor and outside seating under a roof that is pleasant even if it rains. I tried a gluten free, dairy free pizza and it was the best I have ever eaten - it tasted like the real deal. Friendly... More

We were in Black Mountain for a week for a family vacation and we ended up eating here twice. The pizzas and pastas are quite good. The salads are huge. A small salad served two of us. The restaurant is great for children!

Lots of dishes to choose from, and all that I have ever had in several visits have been excellent! Love the pizza and salads as well as the main dishes. They don't skimp on the size of the servings either.

We were in the area recently and tried this restaurant for the first time. We had the fried ravioli and the calzone, and both were excellent. The marinara sauce was the best I've eaten anywhere. I could have just eaten it with a spoon!

We recently ate at Fresh and had the Chevre pizza. It had a great flavor from the wood fired oven. The toppings were good and plentiful and they had $2.50 bottled beer as well as a selection of local draft beers. Our waitress did a great job and was very friendly. Overall a good dining experience.

We made a side trip to Black Mountain on a Sunday, during our visit to Asheville. we wandered around the downtown business area and were surprised that many shops were not opened, but we found Fresh Wood Fired Pizza on the web, and since they were just down the street and had Sunday hrs., we gave them a try.
