We were staying nearby and thought we'd try it based on TA reviews. Very lucky to get a table after only a short wait - and it was fabulous! I had the goats cheese and red pepper pizza and it was just about the best I've ever had. Partner had his favourite pepperoni and he was raving over it too. Add to that the most amazing Belgian raspberry beer and fantastic ice cream and I was in heaven. Waitress was charming. Price was really reasonable too. You must go there!

The place is small so expect to wait a little. There are many drinks options to tide you over. The pizza is wonderful. The Alsatian is perfectly topped and satisfying. I ate the small on my own. I also tried the dark chocolate, pb chip, and guava ice cream. Guava is really good! I would go back here again!

Spent a delightful hour here having lunch while waiting for the International Art Show to open. Very friendly server made my stay quite enjoyable (probably because I got there just before the luncheon rush -- after the rush started, service was a little slower but still efficient and friendly). First course was the Apple, Fennel, Celery, and Parsley salad, something I would never order in a million years but decided to try because -- what the heck? -- I was having a fun day off. This salad is excellent and I am determined to make it for myself at home. For my main course I had the chili and cornbread. Both were excellent though by putting the delightfully crumbly cornbread in the chili cup forced me to eat them together -- I would have preferred them separate but enjoyed them both nevertheless. For dessert I had the toasted gingerbread with boring old vanilla ice cream and it too was delicious. A glass of the Bitter American pale ale was very good accompaniment and after such a good meal, I felt far less bitter than usual.

We stopped by for lunch based on the recommendation of a local merchant. It was a funky pizza place with lots of tap beers and friendly service. The food was excellent. We would have come back for dinner if we had not been leaving Boston.

On a recent trip to Boston for an event at the nearby Boston Center for the Arts, we made reservations early enough to get seats to finally try this place.

The beer selection is outstanding, the atmosphere is casual and welcoming and the pizzas are some of the best I've ever had. Anywhere.

Salads were quite good, especially the warm spinach salad. The white clam and smoked bacon pizza is to die for, and both the Neapolitan and the Alsatian were excellent. Service was great, and it's well worth the wait.
