“Best pizza ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

The Primera Maria has got to be the best pizza ever made. Lamb with scampi butter on thin crust is superb.Beer selection has gotten better and service is great. I love this place and the food is great and I am never disappointed.

“We went three times in three days and loved every meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

There aren't many restaurants in Micanopy but cousins steered us to the Blue Highway and it was so much fun and do good (and always crowded) that we just kept going back. Try the salad with walnuts ! Fabulous! Mushroom pizza to die for and I am from the mushroom capital of the world in PA! Go! Enjoy! Stuff yourselves!

“The Pizza is Fantabulous!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Loved, loved, loved the pizza! I ordered the Carne (meat) pizza and it was sublime. It had thin slivers of prosciutto that were absolute perfection! It was just the right amount of saltiness and my mouth literally watered between bites! My daughter built her own pizza and she was very pleased. The brownie dessert was rich and smooth. The only reason I didn't give this place 5 stars is because everything is served on paper plates and plastic cups. My 8 dollar wine was served in a small clear plastic cup! Overall it is a rare little treat in the country. Highly recommend.

“Pretty good, but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Was expecting something amazing the way many folks have raved about this place. We LOVE pizza and have tried it all over the country, so we truly appreciate something unique or delicious. We liked the extensive menu and reasonable prices, plus the service was great and the staffere all very helpful & positive.

We ordered a mushroom & eggplant pizza. We always appreciate fresh mushrooms (rare around here) but they were somewhat bland. The eggplant was good and different - not the usual salty breaded/fried kind. It was a lighter cooked version and fairly tasty. The crust was good - a decent thickness with good flavor. The sauce was also decent but skimpy and a bit blander than we prefer. We also ordered a meatball calzone. It was cooked more than we'd like, so the outside was almost burnt, but the dough elsewhere was soft. Plenty of good quality meatballs in it, but really nothing else but mozzarella since we asked for the sauce on the side. I always thought a calzone had ricotta inside as well or it would be a stromboli. Could have also used some seasonings to liven it up some.

Overall, we liked everything we had and will probably come back to give it another try, especially when they open their pending Ocala location. It just didn't impress me.

“Best Kept Secret in Micanopy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

My wife and I visit the shops of Micanopy a couple of time per year. We are usually there during the middle of the day so we have lunch at one of the two places in the antique area. On this trip we decided to stay overnight at the Herlong mansion. When we discovered that the Yearling was not open on Wednesday night, we asked the stained glass lady for a dinner recommendation. She directed us to The Blue Highway. It was all she said it was and more. The antipasti starter was as good as any we had enjoyed in Italy. The pizza was better than any we had in Italy. Don't let the outside fool you. This is not a diner or road house with typical bar food. The menu is upscale without being overwhelming or pricey. The service is way above average, the rest rooms are clean and the atmosphere is small-town friendly. The Blue Highway is our new favorite in Micanopy area.
