Their signature salads and soups are quite a treat. We have enjoyed many meals here, and have never been disappointed. To beat the crowds, go earlier or later than normal mealtimes.

The food is very, very good and consistent. Very good variety and artisan pizzas. Good location off Main St but parking is sometimes an issue. Pleasant staff. Good reputation.

We ate here with another couple and we were very pleased. After asking around we were told by several locals that this is the place to eat. They were right!! Very classy and inviting. We had pizza and it was amazing! True brick fire pizza.

We really enjoyed this place. My 4 year old daughter said it was the best pizza ever! They even have a little kid play spot in the waiting area.

Awsome sauce is an understatement. This is a fabulous and well built delicious pizza from West First. Top notch fresh hand kneaded dough, house made sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese and fresh locally grown basil with roasted garlic and grilled chicken. #westfirstwoodfiredpizza #yourreflectionphotography #professionalfoodphotographer

We went here on a very good recommendation, but weren’t overly impressed. It was quite good, but not great. We shared the salmon and a pizza and different salads. The Caesar salad dressing was almost unpalatable. Not sure what was wrong, but it was just...More
