“Worth a visit. "But".....”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

This is our second review of this place. We have been there 3 times - seeking each time to compare and contrast with past visits - what got better, what became worse, what remained the same.

In summary, we generally like the place - tasty, well-prepared food, some neat, unusual combinations / ingredients, nice atmosphere, conveniently located when other tasks call you to the area.

• The primary exception to these positive comments center on the beer prices. They are offensive - and just not worth it. Over-inflated.

• We make these statements based upon our solid experience as regular micro brew / restaurant attendees and high quality beer-buyers at better restaurants.

• First, while the selection is ample, it is all tap or bottle - not cask and not made on the premises - it is brought in. Yet - the prices for a typical pint (16 ounces) are approx. $7.00.

• Further, the more flavorful and in our opinion, more desirable beer, are only served in a 10.5 ounce glass (35% less than a pint) - for up to $8.00! Read - "small glass of beer (even less than a standard bottle) for eight dollars". It feels like victimization. This of course obligates us to pass / not purchase the beer because we do not believe in wasting our money.

A missed opportunity for more gross revenue and margin for the Owners. Make the prices more reasonable and fair - and the owner will likely sell far more beer and earn even more profit than at present.

The overall experience would be far better if the Owners would correct this rather significant flaw.

And note that some others feel the place is over-priced as well. We are not alone.

Just our opinion - no better than anyone's else. Do your own research, visit the place, review the menu and beer prices and form your own opinion.

“Always great pizza and beer”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

We've been here a few times and never disappointed. Fresh, Wood fired pizza with the best mozzarella and pepperoni as well as top notch service in a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Their beer selection is excellent with many local and worldwide microbrews on tap! A great choice when in Kittery.

“Oasis in the Outlets”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We stumbled on this restaurant while trying to find out motel after a day of serious shopping. We were tired and hungry and, having tried their bread from Whole Foods, I knew this place had to be good. Well, our food was very good - pizza from wood fired ovens and lovely salads. But the big surprise was the beverage selection. We sat at the bar and I immediately noticed the 30 taps for draft beers. Made a mental note - "next time bring my husband." But additionally, I noticed large stainless steel cylinders with taps. Turned out to be for wine. There must have been about 8 different wines available "on draft." Needless-to-say, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this friendly, comfy restaurant. Next time in Kittery, we'll definitely go there.

“Great service, beer selection, and food”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

This was an amazing dining experience. They had a great selection of beer (a bit expensive). The pizza was very unique. We had the spicy kale salad, Korean hot wings, eggplant and ricotta pizza and the squash, caramelized onions, and ricotta pizza. It fed 4 of us with pizza to take home. Our server was very attentive and provided great service!

“Something special in Kittery!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

We discovered this place quite by accident. I had been familiar with WPF breads for years, but never knew they had a restaurant. The wait can be somewhat long on busy weekends, but it is worth it. Their artisan breads really are excellent, and the offerings on the menu are very much out of the ordinary. There's more selection than you'd expect from a place like this. Service was good even though the restaurant was very busy. Even though this is a pizzeria, the breads are so go that I've never gotten around to the pizza. It looks amazing though! Don't forget to bring some breads home from their bakery next door.
