Solid

Visited twice during our stay. The kids gravitated towards the pizza and calzones, which were great and filling. The highlight for me was a roasted chicken dish with fresh beans and mashed potatoes. Service was crisp and prices were very reasonable. I would gladly return.

Very interesting and eclectic menu. Loved the Island Pizza I had, and the pork shoulder that was being smoked smelled AMAZING! Service was great for our group of 8, and I would certainly return to try other things!

I love locally owned places, just not this one. Appetizer of bread knots...hard as rocks. Pizza...okay. Service...poor. Atmosphere...poor. It was super hot and I asked the waitress if we could turn on the fans, she looked at me like I was crazy. Went to the bathroom and saw the thermostat set at 76. I just really wanted to love this...

The pizza was great. Really good crust. Try the Pot Stickers it you aren't in the mood for pizza. And of course the desserts.

THis locally sourced restaurants is one of my favorites. Half the menu is pizza, but the other half consists of Nick's creations. Descriptions of items are vague because it's what he got at the farmers market or the local farms that makes up the dishes. I love his meatloaf, but he had a homemade tagliatelle pasta dish with a tomato... More

I love this little pizza place! The service and food was outstanding! The pizza has no sugar but honey! And no artificial flavoring! The waitress talked to is about the food and told us that the pasta was made from scratch everyday! This is so much more than regular pizza place! This is Homegrown!

What a unique find! Adore this place! Everything is made from scratch with love-without preservatives! We were on an outing from the Children's Museum, searched and found this little gem! The potstickers are delish! Even the pizza was a bit special-no preservatives-sweetened with local sources honey verses sugar! Actually felt good after eating my pizza!!! Can't wait to go back!

Great pizza, wood fired, homemade ingredients. Chef came out and talked about the ingredients and thanked us for stopping in. Definitely will go back and try another of their pizzas.

A nice little local restaurant in Portsmouth. The pizza was homemade, wood fired, outstanding. They have a good local craft beer selection.
