“Not Your Average Pizza Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

Very creative and unusual pizzas and other dishes with an emphasis on locally-grown, and in some cases, locally foraged ingredients. We tried the "trust us with your dinner" option which was a six-course dinner created by the chef that apparently varies daily with what's fresh and available. We loved some of the dishes, so-so on a couple of them but all were very fresh and creative. Our favorites were the wood-fired pizza and the fresh oysters which they tell you are harvested 344 yards away from the restaurant. We'd probably go back for the pizza alone. Service was good, and it's a small place with a nice vibe that we enjoyed.

“Memorable and a nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

This was a nice casual place with really good pizza and fresh ingredients! We were welcomed with an unexpected aperitif of a fresh garden variety. The salad was so fresh with ingredients that must have been picked that day. The pizza was very good. The dessert of the day was chèvre with a fir tree tip slush and chocolate Crumb that was the most unique but tasty dessert I have had in a long time! They open at 5 so plan accordingly! Very large outdoor dining area which would be fun but the interior was cooler during the heat wave! Loved this place and can't wait to take others there in the future!

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

The pizza here was amazing. It's a little pricey, but well worth it. The flavor was amazing, and it left me satisfied. My wife also enjoyed hers. She wouldn't let me try a bite.

Farm to table upscaled. Never have i been to a "pizza place" that serves an amuse bouchée and has outstanding plates and salads. Oysters are to die for!!!

“Loved it!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Very good pizza and salads. I recommend the kale salad. Even if you aren't a kale fan like me, it was really good. We loved the margarita pizza best. Pork pizza was okay. Service good except a big mixup in our salads and had to wait quite a while for the server to get a simple salad to our table. Lovely ambiance. Small so go early.
