After seeing the name 'Brick Oven" we walked up the side street to look at their menu, and to our delight they did have Brick Oven Pizza! We are world travelers, and my husband is a true lover of pizza. (we had one in Rome with "everything" that included a fried egg! It was good!) He had the "Brick" and said it was great, with just the right amount of "char" on the bottom that comes with a good pizza cooked in a brick oven. I had the Cajun pasta, a local favorite (so the server told me) and it was great!! The sauce was so good I had to have extra bread so that I could sop it all up. Yum city! We had a nice bottle of wine with it (an Italian Zonan), and were served by a charming young woman with a great personality who did a great job. (Thanks Cary!)
The atmosphere is charming too. Really cozy and nice.
If you want "American" pizza, it is on the menu, but we didn't try it, however it might suit those who are used to commercial pizzas.

Our pizza was so thin!! Barely any toppings or cheese. Seriously would have been better off eating the cardboard with toppings on it. Looked like it had been microwaved.

We were greeted on entry by the owner, which was nice. The waitress was friendly and attentive but the pizza didn't live up to the good reviews. I think it was over cooked because the 2 pizzas that were delivered before us smelled burnt. Ours was a little burnt on the outer crust but not the bottom and didn't taste burnt but the cheese had a odd looking appearance like it was overcooked. The toppings were very skimpy. Even for Hannibal it wasn't a very good pizza.

Arrived here late Saturday afternoon. Ordered a sub and a small calzone. The food arrived really quickly. Our sodas were refilled promptly. The server was attentive. The place was clean and made the most of the historic building it is in.

We stopped in for lunch on a quiet and sleepy Saturday afternoon. The wrong order came out for us without so much as a "sorry" and then the delay for the right order (still no apology.) Food was just fair and service was not all that attentive. Perhaps we should have ordered pizza.
