“Best pizza ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We don't live in AZ so can't say if this is the best pizza ever in AZ, but it is the best pizza I have ever had, anywhere! Amazing choices and the pizzas were delicious. Could not believe the size of the pizzas for the price - wow. Great prices and I can't believe how much we ate. Super tasty and seriously the best pizza I've ever had. Ever. And completely unrelated, but a really cool building and design as well. This place is really special!

“Great pizzas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We were celebrating with friends and had a great night of food and drinks. The Funghi Pizza was great! The Parlor also had a pretty impressive beer local beer selection.

“Excellent for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

They're open at night and do serve pasta dishes that would be acceptable for a dinner out but to my mind this is a luncheon shop. Very modern with a little more space between the tables (and quieter) than most of the "new" designer restaurants. With a working herb garden entry and screened patio, this is a great place for a relaxing lunch. The pizzas have chef (not line cook) style preparation and don't come loaded with melted cheese and tomato sauce. The twelve inch pizzas are large enough to share, as are the salads. This is not Village Inn or Pizza Hut. Expect unusual ingrediates and unusual paring and expect to be pleased.

“Good food but service a little off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

The food is really good but when the place gets busy it gets a little confusing. The Host will take names and send you to the bar area but the bar area tables are up for grabs so people will sit and wait for a table taking up space until a restaurant table becomes available. I just thin when it gets busy the bar tables should be included in the process to move people through a litlle bit quicker. On busier nights parking is a disaster. Not enough parking so you are forced to valet. I recommend this place for lunch. Service is much better.

“Better off elsewhere!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Visiting from Colorado and we were looking forward to a fun night away from our kids....... did not happen! The place was packed full of families which is nice to see but still not what we were anticipating. Food was mediocre and service was slow; granted it was busy but no effort was given to us for a while after we were seated! Have fun here if you want no attention!
