...didn't quite live up to the hype surrounding it. We stopped in for a late dinner after the worst movie experience at nearby Cinemark on a Saturday night. It's a small place but is decorated very nicely and has a bit of a modern feel. We took the last open table, as it was very busy. We went for a split pizza, half was a specialty pizza with meatballs and ricotta and the other half was traditional pizza which ended up coming with accidental proscuitto on it (score! no complaints here). Not having tried coal-fired pizza until now, I was expecting something quite different from the norm. I didn't really see any difference between it and some other wood oven baked, thin crust pizza. My husband seemed to love his side, as he's a big meatball fan in general. It was good, but not quite knock your socks off good as I was expecting from all the reviews.
For drinks, he had a beer and I had their "fusion" martini, which had pineapple and coconut soaking in the pitcher. They were good, but very pricey as those two drinks alone were near $20. Overall, the atmosphere is nice and cozy, but the tab was pricey. I certainly wouldn't drive for miles to check it out, but since we are nearby I may give it another try sometime. Perhaps next time I'll try the wings instead.
