Good pizza

Went on a Saturday night. Glad I made reservations before because there was a line to get in. Pizza was very good. Prices were reasonable.

This is one of my favorite places to eat when in center city. Pizza is very good as are many of the pasta dishes. The Insalada is also very good. Price is reasonable except for the desserts which is rather expensive. The only thing I do not like is the delivery service. Every time I order delivery it takes along... More

Service was abysmal. We had a mid afternoon pizza and beer, the place was nearly empty and staff stood around and forgot they had clients at the outdoor tables. Our pizza arrived barely warm and the mozzarella had seized up, so it was like rubber. I mentioned this when we finally fetched the waitress she argued with me about the... More

Wish we could get pizza like this in Memphis. Crust was well done, which is my preference. They list their salads as "small", but they are more than enough for two or more people. The beet salad was amazing. Service was good, location was good. This was an excellent place to start our trip.

Excellent food, huge portions (natch!), friendly and helpful service. But really, really noisy ... Ok, lots people but the room acoustics are terrible ... can hardly hear yourself speak.

The service was great. The food was great. But we paid over $30 for a large specialty pizza. For 2 large pies, a family style salad, 3 appetizers, and NO ALCOHOLIC drinks the final bill including tip was $171.

I absolutely loved my pizza from here and thought that their crust was just amazing. In fact, the crust was perfect. For more pictures and commentary, check out www.gustatori.com.

Pizza was delicious but slow service. We tried to order the calimari grilled instead of fried but they would only make it deep fried, too bad. First we waited for 20 minutes to get the check, then another 1/2 hour to actually get the bill paid. It was a nice evening out and great people watching so we passed the... More
