“Not too bad, but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The restaurant is small and located on a street where several trendy restaurants can be found. I would not say that this is a trendy place: it is a neighborhood pizza parlor only.
There are a few choices on the table d'hôte and the short menu offers a few appetizers, some salads, but I chose to try the Americana pizza, as they specialize in pizza and pasta.
The wine list is rather extensive for the size of the establishment and several wines are offered by the glass, which is something I appreciate.
The crust was thin and crispy fresh out of the pizza oven. The ingredients were not abundant, some might say a bit scarce, but the taste was pleasant and the portion is large and filling.
We did need to use some forceful tactics to get someone on staff to stop and take our payment so that we could leave, however, the attention on the client wavering once the dishes have been cleared. This was surprising as some people were waiting at the door to be seated...

“Just not enjoyable”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Maybe it was an off night, but I really did not enjoy my dinner experience here. The waitress was very hurried, we were treated as more of an inconvenience than customers/guests. A significant lack of hospitality from start to end. While the food wasnt bad, it wasnt great either. Poor hospitality and average food mean I wont bother going back.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012 via mobile

Got to the area late, we're hoping to get into Joe Beef without reservation, no luck, most places we're closing, so tried this pizzeria. Food was delicious, cream of tomato soup, escargots in a cream sauce with arugula, then pizza with ricotta and prosciutto and cherry tomatoes, could not have been better. Great atmosphere on the patio. Service was impeccable.

“Fresh, well prepared, seafood and pasta also great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

This place is well - frequented, and busy, especially later in the evening. So we save it for early meals with the kids. The appetizers (octopus salad, caprese salad with hand-made soft mozzarella, delicious, salads, etc) pastas and meat courses are well prepared and presented. Unlike some other reviewers, we have never had bad service or any adverse event here (however please note the comment about our arrival preferences etc). The wine list is somewhat better than expected given the locale and the price point. The wood-oven pizza is excellent, but we often opt for the pastas, which can be unusual and worthwhile (home-made rigatoni with pork ragu and roast pork and peppers, for example). The seafood is properly cooked (i.e. not overcooked and not incubated forever with the sauce ingredients) and the pastas likewise are knowledgeably prepared.

“Best Pizza Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

I can't say enough about this small quaint resto in Griffintown. The brick oven pizza is mouth watering, the staff is friendly. They have great salads as well and, although i have not tried them the pasta dishes look super a swell. But i go for the pizza, my favorite is the Americano with the Rocket salad....ummmmmm
