Had pizza and pasta on the patio and they were both very good. A wood fired pizza always seems to be superior due to the crisp crust. Wife really enjoyed the pesto pasta. Pet friendly too.

They offer the option of "no char" which means your pizza crust and bottom aren't charred/blackened in places. This resulted in a slightly under cooked crust for us although it was probably better than charred in my opinion. The wait staff/cooks should wear a uniform T-shirt at least. they all wore whatever they woke up in when we were there.... More

My wife, 4 year old son, myself and brother with his young kids decided to give this place a try. We sat down and were ignored for the next 20 minutes, after keeping our kids entertained and countless times looking for service while watching others around us be served, we decided to leave. Server looked to be high out of... More

This is a casual dining restaurant in the heart of downtown Black Mountain. They have plenty of free parking in back and a few places in front with dining both inside and outside. This is basically a homemade pizza place that also sells delicious huge sandwiches you won't find anywhere else pasta and salads. We've been here often most recently... More

Was absolutely disappointed in this place. Placed a to go order and was told it would be ready in 30 mins. Well, it was finally ready for us 55 mins later. On top of that, the fresh mozzarella and prosciutto were left off the pizza. Would not recommend.

We started with the cheese bread, which was a wonderful start to the evening. I enjoyed the Highland Oatmeal Porter dark beer which was awesome! Others selected from the ample wine menu and the bottled beer selection. For the main course we ordered three pizzas: mushroom and sausage, Florentine, and the Scarface. Each were cooked well and delicious. The atmosphere... More

We had lunch at this restaurant. Loved reading their business rationale---I would like to order everything on their menu! The fresh locally grown food really impressed us. We arrived 11:45 PM Tues. and were the first ones there. Good thing, because the restaurant filled about noon.!We ordered their bbq pizza and Kale salad. Both were delicious. We shared the Pizza....

This restaurant was advertised in the hotel directory & all the reviews were good, so we decided to try it. All three of us had pasta dishes. The house dressing on the included salad was very tasty, with a pleasantly surprising texture. I had the pesto alfredo penne dish; I started off eating it with a fork but switched to... More

Now that was really good. Can't always say that about pizza, since I'm very particular. Great crust, kids ate the whole thing, and all ingredients tasted fresh. Will go again and again.

The wood-fired pizza is always crisp and charred a bit on the bottom, which we think is perfect. Toppings are of high quality and always fresh. We love to watch the chef toss the dough!
