“Fresh Ingredients = Very Good Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Brattleboro is one of our favorite towns in Vermont. We were there to celebrate my 60th birthday and decided to fulfill a birthday craving for pizza. Fireworks has a selection of small pizzas (enough for two as an entree), most of which are on the gourmet side (figs, gorgonzola cheese, that sort of thing). We ordered the standard Pizza Margherita (tomatos, basil, and cheese) and had them add pepperoni on one half of the pizza. The crust was good, not great, but the freshness of the ingredients was tangible. Very nice pizza. I also had a salad, which was also very fresh tasting. This may be the best pizza in Brattleboro.

“Underwhelming and overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We thought we'd try this place after reading the reviews in the window, and had pizza. Perhaps I'm nissing something, but it had three slices of tomato and no sauce. Having had the best pizza in the world in Florence, I know that just isn't right; unless it's described as a 'white' pizza, it should have sauce. The waiter was surly and never cracked a smile. The attempt-at-humor wine list gives the choices as cheap, decent and good, perhaps to keep the riff-raff out, and I wasn't going to pay $9 for a wine I'd never tried, so opted for the cheap red. Man, it was awful! Like turpentine! All in all the worst dining experience we've had in quite a while. Won't be back.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We called to make reservations prior to attending the theater. We were told that the restaurant does not make reservations for fewer than 6 people. I explained that we had a time constraint. The reply was "if you have to wait you will have time to grab a drink at the bar." We did go there for dinner with a larger group of people. We made it clear to the waitress that we were a party of 3 and we had a time constraint. Our drinks came quickly; we did have to wait for our dinner; one salad was forgotten,. When we received the bill, we put it on a credit card and added a generous tip,. The next day I looked more closely at the credit card slip and discovered that for a party of 3, a tip of 20% had been included in the original bill. We therefore, tipped the waitress 20% of 120% of the bill. At no time were we told that this was a practice of this restaurant. Needless to say, we will not return.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Sitting on the hill on Main Street in Brattleboro this cozy restaurant offers a nice variety of food, including a wood fired oven that bakes a beauful, bubbly and crusty pizza - add a salad and cold brew and it's all good - comfortable, dim lighting and good prices - more unique than most of the other local restaurants.
