Everything delicious organic and high-quality. The pizzas are amazing as well. It's a little tight in the dining room, and the chairs are not that comfortable, but we come back again and again

This is another great pizza place in downtown Hendersonville. I have eaten here many times. It can get very crowded and you might have to wait, but the atmosphere is very nice and the food is delicious too. I really like the way their pizza is made quite thin and there are some healthy options to choose from. The inside... More

And good seafood. The broiled fish was just right. The two pizzas ordered by our party could have had a crust that was a bit more crispy, but that might be too picky. They were both delicious. As was the key lime pie.

Pizza is the best around fresh ingredients great taste. Busy place if you have to wait go to Poe house below and have a glass of wine or beer. Poe memorabilia everywhere.

I am not a fan of goat cheese and asked for a salad with it on the side because I was also looking to order a pizza with salmon that had the goat cheese on it . I was told it was made fresh locally. Wow was I surprised! It was really good on the salad and the pizza. Lots... More

I have had good pizza in many places (Chicago, NY), but I was fortunate enough to order a pizza that has easily landed in my top 5 of all time. If you go here, get the Campari. You will be glad you did. The place itself is also just a darn cool place to be. Very laid back, but with... More

Looking for delicious dining alfresco? This is the place to visit! Interior has a fun and funky open atmosphere, if the weather is not cooperating.

Second trip to West First last night with friends. Had a house salad and pizza. The salad was delicious with spinach, roasted almonds, tomatoes cheese and vinaigrette. The pizza was excellent thin and crispy crust and fresh ingredients. We sat outside since it was a pleasant evening, but there was plenty of seating inside. The beer was cold with excellent... More
