...so I can't comment on the pizzas. But their bread is great so it's a fair bet the pizzas will be amazing.

This is a lovely, hip place with a relaxed vibe and friendly staff. I enjoyed the breakfast (eggs, greens and ham served with sourdough toast) although I found the cold egg a little unusual. Still it was delicious, coffee good also.

Excellent as always but the owner/chef has stepped down for six month due to numerous allegations of sexual harassment but I hope his 4 restaurants can recover from the “bad taste in your mouth”.

The staff and cooks continue to provide great atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food. The workers seem like a family and appear to honestly enjoy bringing good food to the table. Hopefully, recent news will not dissuade people from dining there. The employees appear to work hard, efficiently and folks should continue to visit to support their efforts. We've been going there for years and and have really enjoyed their special events. It is our go-to place when dining with friends and family.

More than a pizza spot - this is a cool Italian restaurant. First off, service is the best. We were greeted by the hostess, promptly seated, and offered beverages. We took our time with the menu but never felt rushed. The wait staff checked in frequently but were never obtrusive. Now to what you want to know - the food is great. We started with some oysters, super fresh. The pizza is outstanding, super thin crust, freshest of toppings in just the right quantity. But I'd go back for a salad and the pasta with clams and sausage as well. And if you eat light, you might have room for dessert. The décor is rustic. The restaurant is really a standout in this neighborhood.

The food is incredible and service is very good as well, they just don't like you to stay too long so they can flip the table.
It is pricey but considering that they make everything and the ingredients are top notch it is totally worth it.
