Great little restaurant in downtown Durham. Arrived early and was glad we did so. The restaurant had a line waiting within 30 minutes. The staff were knowledgeable about the food and the drinks to match. The seating allows the staff to place others at your table, which did not bother us. Makes for a great way to meet new people. Both of us ordered a pizza off the detained menu. Unlike the chains, this restaurant has a fixed number of pizzas to choose from. (I found out on another visit, the menu does change) This means excellent quality ingredients. What set this meal as being different is the "salt" the restaurant sprinkles on the crust. Adds a neat flavor to the meal. We enjoyed being able to see the kitchen/oven from our table.
There is a bar, located in the back of the restaurant with entry from a side street.
As for pricing, it is a little more than some restaurants, but it is well worth the visit.
