“Food is great. Service was the weak link.”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

We've been here several times, whenever we visit relatives in town, and it's always very good food. It's a charming little pizza place with nice fresh and semi-premium ingredients (nothing ridiculously fancy, but you can get fresh garlic, prosciutto, mozerella). The atmosphere is charming, right on the main drag.

The only mild complaint is that it seems some of the wait staff are less than thrilled to work there. Our server was great. She was prompt, friendly, and accomodating. Even after we got paper towel in our lobster ceasar salad, she apologized and the manager took it right off the bill. Unfortunately, the next table over had a very different experience.

There was a quiet (french speaking) Canadian couple very close by, and th, this eir waitress, an African American woman, could not have been more rude. This couple obviously didn't know the language that well, and was a little clueless on some culteral aspects concerning the bill. Whenever they did something wrong, this waitress would exhale impatiently, run off in a flustered manner, and mutter under her breath. I felt bad for these people. The waitress even came over once and very confrontationally said to the gentleman, "what's the matter? You don't like your food." I was embarrassed for her.

Despite this disappointing experience, the restaurant is a staple, and we'll continue to go there. We just hope the managament takes a look at some of the servers' approaches to dealing with customers. For example, asking someone if they want change or not. Yes! I want my change, and then I can leave the tip without pressure. Basic things like that would move my rating up to 5 stars. Excellent service would complete the picture.

LAPIZZERIAOGT, Owner at La Pizzeria, responded to this review, September 13, 2012
Thank you for your recent review on Lapizzeria, as we have been known for our friendly staff and excellant service to our customers.
It is apparent that we have a bad apple in the barrel and the waitress was spoken to on her behavior that evening and is no longer with Lapizzeria. This one incident was not my sole decision,it was based on a few other complaints.
Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention.
