Watch carefully for this long brick building. The sign wasn’t lit the night we went. It’s a remodeled diner, updated, fresh, with an original bar countertop, and an additional serving room at the end. Furnishing are contemporary without being pretentious. As the photo aptly demonstrates, our server, Nina was a delight with her lively, sense of humor, a vivaciousness that makes you want to come back.

We shared a pizza with fried green tomatoes, bacon, and lettuce and tomato. Delicious. Excellent thin crunchy crust. And my wife went for dessert of the pumpkin ice cream.

Ideological point: All Souls works hard to source local ingredients by season. Props.

Arrive early, as you can run into wait times later in the evening.

Wood-oven, thin-crust pizza is what I make at home and what I like best, and this is pretty good, but needs some tweaking. The crust has a good flavor, but the ingredients weren't plentiful enough and the pizza wasn't piping hot when it came out. I order spaghetti and meatballs. I asked waiter if it was a big portion because I like a big plate. The meatballs were a good portion and they were very good along with the sauce. But it was not a big portion, in fact, the noodles were downright skimpy, not near enough to go with the meatballs and sauce. I think the pasta was homemade, which is nice, but they need to add a lot more to the dish. So I tried a slice of 2 different pizzas we ordered, but they didn't seem to be much difference between the two. The atmosphere is nice and service is good, but all the pizzas are around $14 and barely enough for 2 people - not a good value. Nice beer selection of local drafts.

Took a Charleston SC couple to dinner on a week night & was seated promptly. We always banter about where the best food can be found - Charleston or Asheville. Our server was helpful, outgoing and timely, but the food was generally disappointing. The standard pizza was a good size & the cheese was abundant, but the gluten free pizza was very small, thin on cheese & seasoning, & the little cheese layer kept slipping off the tasteless crust. I know GF can be a challenge, but if you offer & advertise GF, it should be ... well...good. (Have you tried Against the Grain frozen pizza? proof it can be good). The arugula & beet salad had no arugula to be found on the plate & some crunchy vegetable we couldn't identify. After we had finished our pizza, our server suggested the home made ice cream for dessert. Again - tasteless sums it up. So: a beer, a personal pizza (split by 2), a salad (split by 2) & dessert (split by 2)...$42.00 inc tip. Hmmmm. No win here for the home team.

Concept is great but we found the toppings to be overwhelmed by the crust flavor. And honestly, I prefer a crust that doesn't sag when you pick up a slice of pizza and toppings start to drip or slide off. Must be eaten with a fork. We also had the roasted beets. Beets were in all different sizes so some were properly cooked and some weren't. Flavor was good but it needed salt. We expected more and given all the options in Asheville, I doubt we would return.

We ate here for the first time on Friday night. Thankfully we didn't have to wait long to sit as we came with 2 kids. The restaurant was filled and we had to park across the street. The restaurant had a nice vibe as you walked in. Service was prompt and we ordered 3 pizzas and a couple of starters. The house made mozzarella was quite good. The hush puppies were not a table favorite and were raw on the inside. The pizza was good but a bit soggy in the middle. Maybe because it was so busy the pizzas were rushed out? or maybe there was too much sauce? Not sure but it wasn't our favorite. We will be willing to try again another time when it isn't so busy to see if there is a difference. It was really neat watching them make the pies and see how the oven works.
