It’s hard to know where to start so I’ll start with my salad - Cozze e Gamberi. The mussels were perfectly cooked and the bread is nicely spicy. I ate all of it. My husband had the Macellaio pizza which he said was wonderful. Lots of topping and a crusty but chewy crust. And the beer selection is pages long. Great wait staff and atmosphere - you really should try it.

Very near our hotel and a great find for delicious pizza and beer on tap. The waiter was professional and very friendly. The restaurant was very popular.

I could name 6 pizza dives that are better! We had a 10 minute wait during a Friday evening rush (2 people) when everyone said that we'd wait an hour. The host was cordial, but the rest of the staff did not want to be there, but they were polite. The place was hopping and crowded but we still had our choice to eat out or in. We chose out and the Mosquitoes ate more than we did. The could out Citronella on the table instead of fake LED tea candles. The food is good. I ordered what sounded like a great dish, but it lacked cheese - it's a pizza for Christ's sake! If you like being packed-in, this is your spot as there are way too many tables. They don't serve mixed drinks and the waitress even smirked the new asked for one. I won't return because it was just normal withe a mediocre atmosphere.

Excellent neighborhood joint with a stellar craft beer selection. Knowledgeable staff and delish wood-fired pies. Woman-founded business! Dropped in with no reservation and was seated within 10 minutes. Organic Chocolate Stout and Sunday Morning Stout—so yummy!

Our group was in a hurry to catch a train and the staff was wonderful about getting us a table and having the waiter get our order going right away. He was very attentive to the fact that we needed to be somewhere. The pizza and sandwiches were VERY good! And the price was excellent. Especially for the type of restaurant. Very affordable. Would highly recommend!
