We have always loved the speciality pizzas but we intend to explore the rest of their great menu and specials! Today we seriously had one of the best meals EVER! A weekend special was tender calamari with their home aid marinara sause and crab cake medalian salad. Both was made to perfection and paired with one of their signature wines.... More

Teens and parents enjoyed this place. It was recommended by our B&B innkeepers, and they steered us to the right place. Don't hesitate. This place is great.

Just passing thru and had to stop as this is the best pizza ever! We had the olive appetizer and the scarface pizza - charred. Hand tossed crust, fast service and delicious pizza. What more could you ask for?! We don't eat pizza often but we had to stop here on our journey.

Although it's a bit hidden, it's worth the search. Three visits have confirmed that "Fresh" make some of the best pizza in western NC. Love the pottery, but return for the pizza!

My husband and I found this little treasure today and I am so glad we did! We ordered the bruschetta to start, a spinach side salad and a Greek side salad. The salads were abundant to say the least. I loved the ingredients in each of the dishes...very creative, fresh and tasty combinations. My salad had spinach, toasted walnuts, local... More

Finally an excellent neapolitan style pizza near Asheville. We were visiting Black Mountain today and stumbled into this little treasure. Great forno a legna (wood oven) with very adept pizzaioli. Beautiful thin crust expertly cooked. We will definitely make the drive to come back. 5 stars to Mark Tomczak and staff. Grazie da Regina e Valentino

This place was a surprise! It looks like a dump from the outside and seating is limited inside. The sign for them is small and we almost missed it; thank goodness for GPS! Even though it was kind of late for lunch on a Wednesday, the place was packed so we stayed. We ordered the olive plate to start and... More

Local eatery with area craft beer. Always our go to place for dinner. Small eating area when outside seating is closed for the winter. Can be crowded on the weekends, but this is an testament to the great pizzas.
