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

Excellent food, great service, reasonable prices. This is one of the only places in Hendersonville that offers organic, healthy food.

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

We chose West First because my daughter and I have celiac disease and must eat gluten free. I called twice before we chose this restaurant and both times the person who answered the phone assured me that they offered gluten free pizza and other options for people who need/want to eat gluten free. What we discovered is that they are... More

While the Hendersonville-Flat Rock area boosts many pizza places, this one on West First Avenue is by far tops! A modern, clean atmosphere awaits, with both indoor and outdoor seating options. Service is good, and the wood-fire oven is gorgeous. It is actually a focal point in the dining room. The salads are large and fresh, and the selection of... More

Sitting on the outside patio in the evening was very pleasant, but the food was not as good as our first visit a few years ago. The West First salad had very little dressing and was mostly lettuce. The thin crust Campari pizza and Potato pizza were both soggy. Perhaps it was an off night, but our food was disappointing.
