Restaurant details
Reviewed May 31, 2013

This place serves wonderful food with the fresh California flavors. Pizzas, paninis, great soups and salads--available at surprisingly reasonable prices. We had the burrata pie with arugula, hazelnuts, carmelized onions and pesto as well as white pie with ricotta/mozzarella and red onions, pickled peppers--several spring special pizzas were listed. We ordered out,but the restaurant was really attractive with a friendly atmosphere. The larger lunches prepared for groups looked perfect for offices, etc. We are definitely going back to try the kale salad and some of their other items. Alot of creativity here and executed beautifully.

Pitfire Pizza in MB recently changed from real chicken and real bacon to that nasty imitation stuff made from eyes and beaks and all that stuff that's processed and makes people's digestion feel like crap. Thanks for the bait and switch Pitfire. One will get higher quality and better nutrition eating at McDonalds. Will not be going there anymore that's for sure.

Well-priced salads, entrees and pizzas. We all had salads, so can't really address anything else yet. But try the kale salad! Very tender kale, just the right amount of cut dates and nuts, the perfect zing to the dressing. Prices for wines by the glass are a tad high for the venue.

This is a new restaurant in a busy downtown area. There is a lot of metered parking nearby.

We went for dinner and it was busy and crowded. Lots of families with younger children.

You place your order and pay, then you are seated at a table. The server brings your food when it is ready. Service was prompt and friendly, and the food was tasty. We ordered a Margarita Pizza. The pizza crust is thin and flavorful. The toppings were just right - not too much cheese, and not soggy like some other places. I also had a steak sandwich was very good, and comes with a side salad.

This is a great place for casual dinner or lunch. It gets a bit loud at night with all of the families and the music, so don't expect to have a quite conversation unless you sit on the heated outdoor patio where you can watch the people walk by.

This will be one of my first choices in the area for lunch.
