“Great Pizza, good atmosphere”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

I'm a Neapolitan pizza junkie and this place hits the spot. The ingredients are all very fresh and it shows. I recommend trying any of their white pizzas with pistachios, whether regular menu item or special, and we haven't yet been disappointed by any of the appetizers. Beer selection is top notch.

Service is great too and very kid friendly. Kudos to our recent waitress Emily. She was great and treated us really well.

Well done all around.

“great service”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Food is great and fresh. The pizzas are the best. I recommend the burratta. The place is constantly busy and a wait is to be expected, so either get there early if you do not like to wait. Do not get me wrong though, if you need to wait, it is well worth it.

“Love It”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

The place has been several restaurants, none that great, but this one hits all the marks. Extensive wine list, amazing salads-try the grilled romaine-and creative takes on brick oven pizza and pastas make this a favorite among locals. You can hardly get in most nights without a bit of a wait, but it is entirely worth it.

“Never again”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

My family of five went there recently and after an extensive wait we were seated at a booth with a chair stuck at the end. Needless to say my daughter in the chair was constantly knocked by wait staff. We asked the hostess if we could move to a nearby table that sat six and she said that was fine. After we ordered drinks and appetizers we were told by the owner Michael that we could not sit there. We explained that the other table was too small and he said "either move or leave the restaurant". WE WILL NEVER GO BACK

“A real gem in Glen Ellyn”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

We have brought several friends to F&W because its an all around great experience. Service is some of the best I've experienced, always pleasant & friendly. Food is very good, pizzas are very much like you would get in Italy (southern)
