A friend and I visited Community Pie on a Sunday for a late lunch. We both greatly enjoy neopolitan style pizza and have had the pleasure of trying quite a few well-known places throughout the northeast.
Community Pie was quite a disappointment for us. I had a caesar salad (dressing made in house) with a 'local poached egg' added. The dressing was about the consistency of water (way too thin) and the poached egg was cold enough that I concluded it had been taken out of the fridge and tossed on the salad. The salad was far below average. I had the Super Hero pizza and can't remember what my friend had. The pizza was quite soggy and not the most fun to eat. It was still tasty because pretty much all pizza is. Having said that, I think investing in a pizza oven that costs thousands of dollars means you should know hot to cook a pizza. From my limited experience, the person cooking the pizza doesn't just stick the pizza in the oven and leave it. It requires attention, rotation, and proper time management. Neither of our pizzas seemed to have been given any of those 3 requirements (it took a long time for the pizzas to be brought out, mine was hot and my friends cold).
Also the server, while being nice, would not leave us alone. Our waters would get refilled, then less than a minute later he would come over and ask us something personal. I realize the server is supposed to be attentive and nice, but if I'm in the process of taking a bite out of a greasy/messy slice of pizza, I don't really want to explain to anyone how long it took me to drive to the restaurant. My friends always give me a hard time that, no matter how poor the service, they say I'm too nice and don't complain. At Community Pie I still wanted to say 'GET AWAY DUDE.'
Overall, I'd say Community Pie is similar to many other new Chatty restaurants - they want to project a unique and 'hip' atmosphere, and in trying so hard to achieve it, they sacrifice service, quality of food, and overall dining experience.
