Restaurant details
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Ordered a hot meatball panini to go: they put the ingredients on a big panini, and put it in their pizza oven (both sides up) for a few minutes. Then they close it tight, the melted cheese fusing the sandwich into a synergetic whole.
5$ will get you a sandwich you'll hardly be able to finish; 7$ will upgrade the deal with a salad.
It's a good idea to order your food to go and walk two blocks to the SB county courthouse, which has a huge grassy yard inside. A real pleasure.

Thin crust, fresh toppings, amazing. Don't just stop for a slice, take a few minutes and order a pizza. You won't be dissappointed.

Make no mistake, this is a pizza joint. Maybe four tables in the hot little storefront. Nothing fancy about the restaurant or the menu. Now, I love myself an artisan pizza with imported toppings from a wood-fired oven, but there's also a time for a big, Sicilian-style thin, chewy crust topped with nothing but perfectly seasoned tomato sauce and cheese (maybe some mushrooms). For those of you who believe a plain cheese pizza is the best measure of a pizza maker's skill, check out Gino's.
