This pizza joint is hidden down an alley with several other small eateries. The patio seating looked inviting and there were enough tables, both inside and out, to seat the constant stream of people both eating in and picking up. The menu is a little limited, but the specialties should satisfy anyone, and the small size was perfect for two with the edition of green salads (served in plastic to-go boxes) and a pitcher of draft beer. Both the beer and the wine menu met our scrutiny, and the servers were cordial and attentive. You do have to stand and order in line, get your number, and find your table, but we had no problem with the speed of the line, or the speed of the order delivery. Parking could be a bit difficult- the lot right at the pizza place is pretty small, and you do have to pay attention to the hours they allow- the parking nazis will ticket if you over-stay the wrong part of the lot. There was another larger lot across a bridge that was not too distant- we noted the locals were using this lot more than the closer one. It was a very pleasant way to spend a late afternoon, and we were very full when we finished.
Recommended by a local-in-the-know, we highly recommend trying this place for fair priced, great pizza!

The pizza was delicious. There were many choices; some of the usual and some more gourmet. The beer on tap was amazing, and the beer stein choices were huge. The prices were amazingly low. I loved the Black Butte porter. There is lots of seating outside and the patio is the nicest seating I've ever enjoyed at a pizza place.

The pizza here is great ... however, it is a wait in line place your order at the counter type restaurant. Service is good, but the choices for pizza toppings is somewhat limited. I guess we are spoiled by Amici's. The pizza seemed a bit doughy, although had great flavor. We wanted spinach and feta cheese, but they had neither. What they had was mostly meat pizzas ... pepperoni, sausage, etc.

Nicely baked pizzas, good ingredients. The inside atmosphere is noisy. Sitting outside when weather permits is a treat. The service is somewhat young and inexperienced, but convivial.
