This was average thin crust pizza. The crust was extremely burned in several spots on our two pizzas. Toppings were generous and tasty, but food should not be delivered to a table when it is so crispy that it is black. Our waiter didn't apparently notice. I was not impressed and would not go back to this restaurant again.

The pizza was fair at best. I do believe this place is way overrated. We also had the Cesar salad, but we thought it had an over presence of anchovy. That was OK but still, fair at best. Along with that we had the meatballs they where decent. Would I go back there, probably not I have found much better... More

Came here because we were craving pizza! It did not disappoint. The pizza, the Mediterranean chicken pizza was amazing! The atmosphere left something to be desired and wasn't as intimate or cozy as I was hoping, but definitely good food and service.

Had a big group and they took care of us ! Chris the managre plus staff could not have been better. All 29 people left filled up on great pizza and drinks. I like coal fired and there were many choices of pizza plus other foods. Service was attentive and very efficient. Enjoyed getting to know them also.

Pizza was one of the best pizzas I've ever had.. also the waiter was awesome ! My recommendation is to get a pizza -- half of it the 4 cheese & the other half meatball. You won't be disappointed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also try the wings. They're so good too.

Trinity Repertory Theater is right around the corner, so if you are planning to see a play and want to get a great meal or a drink before, or after, this is the place. PPAC is close by, AS220 is also. I have been going to this area for years and have been to, and liked, Bravo and Gracie's. So... More

I am so glad I was about to seek this place out and live to tell the tale! While parking may be a challenge prior to arriving here (They do provide valet.), the efforts are well worth it. Unless you are going solo or having a date night, it is recommended to get a reservation before showing up. Fortunately I... More

We decided to have an early pizza dinner prior to visiting the Roger Williams Zoo pumpkin display. There were five children and two adults eagerly anticipating the delicious pizza as described in the Trip Advisor recommendations. We were not disappointed. The menu had several tempting options. We went for the Sticky Ribs appetizer and 3 pizzas - the Margherita, the... More

I liked this place and I'm a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to pizza. It was good but different than pizza cooked in a normal oven. Real coal or wood fired leaves some of the crust a little blackened. That's normal. It was a bit overpriced but still really good. The salad was very good for a side... More
