Got a warm greeting entering this place which is always dependably good. This place couldn't be more accommodating. You can order large pizzas with different halves as well as small and they offer a variety of dough and the salads are a shareable size. Our server offered me tastes of the wine when I wasn't sure what I wanted and... More

OK, you may have to wait out in the street for a table to free up. Or huddle in the "vestibule" with your fellow Americans. But the pies are absolutely worth it - hot, wood fired, crispy, fresh ingredients - and the family portion salad (all locally grown greens) is the right size for two herbivores with normal appetites. Plus... More

We were spoiled by the spacious Baba Louie's in Pittsfield (no longer open). This one, the original, has a whole different feel. You wait in line and sit cheek-by-jowl with other diners, families with kids in strollers, etc. The wait staff goes flying by at a hectic pace. But the soups, salads and pizzas remain really good. The salads have... More

What a surprise to have sour dough crust with the best toppings. Absolutely love this place and a must when I'm visiting back east. Highly recommend!

I went to Baba Louie's last night with my husband and friends. We had a bit of a wait, but it was a Saturday night at around 7PM. When we were seated, we ordered a family size salad which was very tasty and too big for four people. The Riccardo's Pizza Famosa was also delicious and a large was enough... More

Very crowded, very noisy, live music and great food. You can't go wrong in stopping at this seemingly local hangout for a different dining experience. We had a great time.

We came on a Saturday night, had to wait a long, but it was ok, we went around the corner and had drinks at a Mexican restaurant. It was worth the wait, everyone enjoyed their own personal pies. They only have beer and wine, but that's reasonable. Can't wait to come back next year. Staff were nice also.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Lenox for the weekend. Food was so delicious and staff were courteous and quick. We had the curry chick pea soup which was fantastic and also an unexpected option. We followed that with one of their pizzas with sweet potato, onion, parsnip, and balsamic glaze. Usually I go for tomato based... More
