“Setting was Hip and Pizza fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

We arrived at the restaurant without a reservation but had the good fortune to get a table! The tables are close together which encourages diners to talk to each other which worked to our advantage since we learned so much from the locals about which dishes were great and where else to try later in our stay!
The pizzas we chose-Fungi, which was loaded with mushrooms and cheese, and the Carne--which was covered with meat and cheese! Both were delicious!! The thing that most stands out about the pizzas were the extra crispy crust and the spectacular flavor!
The salads were just as memorable..with homemade mozzarella cheese and fresh basil and , plus green salad with gorgonzola cheese, green apples and walnuts.
This was an epic evening!!

“Well, it has a good location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Had a salad on a Saturday for lunch. It was undersized. Service was lackluster, impersonal, slow and aggravating.

“Excellent pizza, beer and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Excellent wood-fired pizza! The pizza was full of flavor, fun topping combinations as well, and great service. It's a busy place with only 20 tables or so, so you may have to wait, but its worth it.
The bar also has some great local beers, and a good beer selection. Spinach salad was a great start to the pizza.

“Always a go-to pizzeria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

The pizza is fantastic! I have tried many of the pizzas and salads but my favorites are the classic "margherita" and the "formaggio di capra". The dough is never soggy (sometimes a little charred). The flavors are great! They also have a daily special menu that has new dishes to try out, you can't go wrong with trying those either!
