“Awesome pizza”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

This place makes a great wood fired pizza. The place is pretty busy and you find a table (usually after waiting for someone to leave) and then order at the counter. We tried the Margherita and the Delancey (like a 4 cheese) and both were mouthwatering.

“The only place to go for pizza in Leavenworth”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

As someone who goes to Leavenworth several times a year; I was thrilled to hear there was a new wood-fired pizza place. We had excellent service at the counter but I could see where some of the reviewers thought the waitstaff was indifferent. The pizza chefs were friendly as could be and the pizza was exactly what a I wanted - a crisp, thin crust with very fresh ingredients in the sauce and toppings. The one pizza more than filled up my two children ages 9 and 10 with 2 slices left over. I also had the roasted vegetable salad and liked it so much that I made it when I got home. We plan to go there every time we go to Leavenworth!

“HORRIBLE SERVICE & GOURMET?”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

We were in Leavenworth for a couple days and this place was reccommended by a the front desk girl at our hotel. She did say she hadn't been there herself but other guest said it was very good. Having had our fill of the usual German fare we gave it a try, big mistake.

The service was rude and they acted as though they could careless we were there. It took forever to get our order and I have to question who is calling this pizza "gourmet", the only thing gourmet is the wood fired oven. What a shame to buy such a nice oven and produce such a low quality burnt pizza.

There are other choices and next time we will choose one of them. My advice, save your money and choose another option.

Reviewed November 29, 2013

If you love gourmet pizza this is the place to go! The night we went the owner was making the pizza and conversed with us most of meal as we were up at the bar watching the action. He was incredibly nice as were all the staff. The pizza was amazing and the atmosphere was delightful. We will definitely be back.
