Review of Backstage Pizza Cafe - CLOSED

Backstage Pizza Cafe
Cuisines: Pizza
Description: This restaurant just opened and is located between the main street of Farmington Ave and the shopping parking lot which makes it very convenient but difficult to see from a map. Here's the Google address. It seems they don't yet have a website up-and-running. http://maps.google.com/maps/place?cid=9707874627087423239&q=backstage+pizza+west+hartford&gl=us

We loved the lentil soup, the cheese pizza and the backstage salad. Gelato for dessert was great!. Backstage serves gluten free pizza and has good vegan choices. The server was terrific, but a little slow. I guess they have live performances on a regular schedule (Music and comedy). I would go back for more. They should take down the St. Patrick's day decorations. Otherwise, it's a cute spot, and the food is very good.

We had fantastic lentil soup, pizza (very good), backstage salad, and cashew salad. Everything was yummy. They have Glenn fee and began offerings and live music and performers on Friday night's! Service was unhurried. Nice wait staff. Food was well presented.

We found this place by accident and were glad we did. It wasn't very crowded for a friday night, which was good because there was only one server and cook holding down the fort. Despite this, the service was good. We ordered the butternut squash soup, garlic bread appetizer, and bbq pizza for 3 adults. We had plenty of food to take home. The food was really good and tasted fresh.

Hidden away in downtown West Hartford, this pizza cafe is a gem. Greeted warmly by staff. A variety of menu choices. Best gluten free pizza...ever. Vegetarian pie loaded with fresh veggies. We'll be back.

I believe I ordered Pizza, not a charcoal puck. Kids would not eat this. Customer service was lacking. Not sure what else to say but I was really dissatisfied. Considering the number of pizza places in the area I don’t see a need to come back here again
