We have heard this place has good food, but we have tried a number of times to eat there and we could not get service. Once we sat there for 10 minutes waiting and we even called out for service and no one ever showed...More

I'd heard about the "pizza nazzi" but was undeterred. As our party of four entered, the proprietor handed us one menu with a "here". We sat ourselves and passed the menu around to decide what to order. The food is expensive, but I had high...More

Refused to seat us. Only allows groups of 6 or less. Had 1 kid in a stroller that put us over the limit. Restaurant was completely empty besides us. Read the reviews afterwards... I won't eat there no matter how few people I'm with.

Nicely set on a deck, situated under trees, this is a great place for an outdoor meal in Twain Harte. We love the owner telling us what wine to order with the pizza choices we make, and the unique (or "quirky" as others reviewers have...More

Absolutely agree with most reviews here. Service was zip, cleanliness, questionable. A virtually DIY experience as far as getting plates, cutlery, glasses, opening your own wine goes. We had the Pepe and the Verdure pizza - they were super tasty. It's a unique experience. There's...More

We were a bit unsure about this restaurant based on the exterior appearance but decided to try it out. While the service was slightly unorthodox, the pizza dinner was delicious and did not disappoint.

Never disappointed eating here. Fresh ingredients, innovative cooking, great wine pairings and the chance to share a table with new people. Love it!

This restaurant is a one of a kind. It is essentially a one person operation - chef, server, owner. One collects their own clean plate from a pile, silverware and napkins too and then pours a glass of wine from the one open red or...More

This might be the best pizza I have ever had, 6 stars. Service? I can't speak intelligently or offer a grade because there was nothing to grade. Wine? Help yourself. Beer? In the cooler, help yourself. The place is quaint, dirty, and has no service...More
