The bakery in flat rock recommended this restaurant. They have same baker but forget who bakes for whom and both have pizza ovens. The men ordered the meatballs which were homemade and delicious. The women ordered half salads which were huge. Our food was delicious. The restaurant is large and was the only one in the evenings that had a... More

We frequent this place often for both lunch or dinner. We always leave satisfied The menu offers the freshest salads, sandwiches or some of the best thin crust pizza to be found anywhere, added a fine selection of wines, beers and margaritas. Not satisfied? Then try the butterscotch pudding (or other deserts) and that will sweeten you up! Located downtown,... More

Everyone at our table - from the kids to the adults to the seniors - raved over their pizzas. I had a barbecue chicken pizza that was super-flavorful, with a ginger beer to drink. I followed it up with a butterscotch rum pudding that was incredible. Definitely a great place to go for lunch. Would recommend it to anyone eating... More

We drove over an hour to get here too! The pizza is the best around for miles, the beer selection is excellent and all the food is locally sourced.

My wife and I enjoyed a fresh and tasty prosciutto pizza during a recent visit to Hendersonville. The restaurant has a casual feel and filled up pretty quickly for a Monday lunch. We were pleased overall with the food and service and would likely return if in the area again.

Was here for lunch with my daughter and her daughter. The service was good and the server was attentive as well as patient with our little girl. The decor is fun and the pizza was among my alltime favorites! Good times!

We gave up after waiting 40 minutes to order a pizza. There were 4 of us, and one person came in a few minutes after the other 3 were seated and had ordered drinks. When those drinks were delivered (after a 15 minute wait) the 4th person ordered her drink. When it was delivered, our waiter slammed it on the... More

Artisan, hand tossed pizza, local sourcing, everything made in house including the pasta, daily specials. The room is very noisy. There is outside seating which is very pleasant and much more quiet.

Just off Main Street, near courthouse, this place is very popular in Hendersonville. It has a unique and interesting modern/urban salvage interior atmosphere. Service staff is generally very good, although our waitress, this time, was new and not at the top of her game. Nice selection on the menu, some unique entrees and sides. The woodfired, brick oven pizzas were... More
