Description: Fireside Pizza Co. is the brainchild of long time friends Ray Villaman and Ted Kennedy. Ray is a 20 year restaurant veteran including - California Pizza Kitchen, Boston Market, the California Restaurant Association and even a short time as President of Blimpies. Ray also had a ton of help from his Father in Law Rich who remains to this day a vital part of the restaurant management team. You may see the big, smiling fella working with the dough in the back or out front with the guests.Other help came from Mark Wheeler, Scott Kennedy and of course Ray's lovely wife Chris and their two sons Jacob and Nicholas. We hope that you enjoy this family creation - combined with some great investors and friends - all wrapped together to bring you the Fireside Pizza Company.We've won a ton of awards for our fresh, unique pizza - but the best award is still when you tell us or your friends that you had an excellent experience here - thanks so much.Sincerely,Fireside Pizza

Great atmosphere and good pizza! They waited on us immediately and had a great menu! The Mountain is right there - nice place. We sat outside which was great.

“Great pizzas, pastas and gluten free pizza and cookie!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

My daughter recently was diagnosed as having a gluten allergy. She LOVES pizza and it has been hard for her to stop ordering that in restaurants. We have found some good GF pizzas in our grocery store but very few restaurants offer it. We were thrilled to find that Fireside had gluten free pizza and also a gluten free hot fresh cookie with icecream! And it was delicious! The other pizzas and pasta we ordered were also great. It's also a nice place to eat - great ambience.

“Family Spot with good selection of items”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

This is a nice spot for families, and can likewise be noisy. There is a reasonable selection of pasta, pizzas, and salads. I especially like the choices of local brews on tap. Shock Top was flavorful, an orange tasting beer/ale. The shrimp pasta and chicken salad I had this August were also very good. Staff attentiveness was excellent. I would go again.

“Great Pizzas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Great selection of pizza toppings and combinations! The crust is not too thin or thick. We always eat here when visiting the Village!
