I tried buffalo chicken and my wife got neapoliten. Neapoliten was awesome. I’ve decided chicken is not ok as a topic on pizza. But this place is rocks. Wooden fire pizza hell yeah...

If I ever have a bad pizza here it's my own fault since I got to chose everything that went onto it. Bonus: they are reasonably priced and have good beer. They're also good about supporting local charities.

Located on State St. across from the Apple store couldn’t be better. The pizza is cooked extremely fast and is very good. I had the personal pan Hawaiian for a reasonable price. The store is spartan with basic tables and chairs. Think no atmosphere here....More

My wife has an allergy to gluten and stumbled on this restaurant while visiting SB. They make the pizza right in front of you. The gluten free dough is rolled out at a separate station by a different person. We have never had a better...More

Not sure why the great reviews? Pizza is made to order but was average at best - my two kid companions agreed. Nice staff.

Delicious pizzas. The Chipotle Chicken Pizza expecially was awesome. Kids enjoyed The Marinara Oizza and the one with added pepperoni.

The great taste of this pizza was absolutely worth it. We thought they were personal sizes (we own a pizza place back home) so we each ordered a pizza. For 4 people we would have been fine with 2 pizzas. You can order on-line making...More
