I can't actually review the food: as I saw some roaches walking around, I just grabbed my stuff and run away as fast as I could.

While the waiter was taking our orders I spotted a very large (half-dead) cockroach on the back of the seat in front of me, where my wife was sitting. The waiter said "Oh, I'm very sorry", took a napkin, got rid of it and then came back. Unfortunately in the very same moment I spotted a second cockroach on the... More

Not your basic pizza joint. It's thin crust sourdough. You can build your own combinations or go with house specials. Wide selection of tastes and wide selection of beers. Recorded background music is heavy on the beat but not obtrusive. It's located next to an art school and the atmosphere reminds of a coffee house. They also have live entertainment.... More

Pizza was great. Tried 3-4 different types - sat outside. Everything was great. Quick service, pizza was hot, made room for all of us. Will return.

Decent pizza choices. High prices and hard to get seating. But it's close and to a lot of entertainment venues. Good beer choices.

We went here based on recommendations and found it was just ok. The pizza was pretty good, not great, but good! For the money, we have had better... They had all kind of interesting pizza topping combinations. We did one basic pizza and one with chicken, black bean, and avocado. They were pretty yummy with thin crust and crispy, but... More

I've found that food network & triple D recommendations are hit or miss. In this case, it was a hit! The pizza was tasty and offered unique ingredients! The size in my pics is 10" for about $16. Sounds high but the ingredients were plentiful and nothing in Baltimore was cheap. Service was fair. We are a late lunch &... More

We tried lunch here while in the Power Plant area. The pizza was not terrible, but not great and we are not sure what the hype is all about. We just ordered a make your own pizza with mushrooms and ground meatballs. I actually preferred it more than my husband. Our friends got the clam/bacon pizza and I had a... More

After many years, I was a return visitor for the fabulous crab pizza I remembered. This time, I had guests in tow because of my endorsement. The crab soup and spinach salad were very good. The restaurant was nicely decorated with good table service and nice presentation. However, the eggs on the pizza were still raw - not just "too... More

Decided to give this place a try as they promote themselves as being "Voted Baltimore's Best Pizza". Not so Much. It was OK, a little bland for my taste buds. The service was a little slow for a half full restaurant at lunch. As the title indicated, not bad just not that good either.
