We love the pizza at Baba Louie's. Our favorite is the barbecue chicken pizza but the margerita is a close second. Just beware, it gets very crowded on weekends and the wait staff seems overwhelmed. It is particularly irksome when you want an hour to be seated, and then it's 20 minutes before someone takes your order. The servers simply... More

The Margherita pizza was excellent, as it always has been. It is the only thing I order here. My husband had the barbecue chicken pizza which he could not eat as the sauce was too sweet for him. He thought it would have been perfect if it had the tomato sauce on it. He ended up eating my leftover pizza... More

We arrived not long after the restaurant opened and were seated immediately. The restaurant quickly filled up but after placing our order, we waited about 50 minutes to get our pizza. The biggest problem was that the pizza was awful. The crust was hard and chewy and the toppings were congealed as well. I can only assume the pizza sat... More

Remarkable sourdough crust pizza with inventive toppings. At its best it's almost world class at its worst (sometimes the pizza isn't as good as other times) it's very good. Try BBQ chicken pizza

This is a small restaurant but certainly not small in flavor. The pizza dough is a sourdough that is crispy and delicious There are many different choices for toppings and quite a variety of different and organic salads. A must visit!!

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
