Good brick oven pizza in a nice south end neighborhood in the south end of Boston. Very friendly staff and they have a nice outdoor space.

We arrived right when they opened at 4:00pm on a Saturday, we did have reservations. Not sure if you would get in without them. The moment you enter the smell made your taste buds go on overload! There is a cute little bar when you...enter to your right and very limited seating in the dining area. The noise level is what you would expect high energy. Our server was great. We started with drinks and each couple split a Caesar salad, which came out already split for us, nice touch!!! We each ordered our own pizza, all different flavors and toppings. They do ask you about the char level since they blacken their pizza crust, we all let them do as they would normally. Way to go for sure. The pizza's were fabulous, 4 large slices. The flavors bursted in your mouth. Unfortunately, we didn't get the ice cream but I hear it is raved about. Will have to go back another time and indulge. Great place for a nice casual pizza dinner.More

The location and patio was nice. The pizza was great and the ice cream was amazing. The coffee ice cream was not creamy like most. It actually had a nice coffee bite to it. Really really good!! Our server was excellent as well. Will definitely...put this on our list to come again.More

The host, who seemed to be a manager / owner, was totally rude. So much so that we and the group behind us left. His demeanor was unwelcoming from the start and escalated when we asked for a table. He then began cussing at us...as we left. Stay away from this joint. The pizza can’t be that good.More

Very good pizza, great beet soup, good salads. Ambience is ok, service was efficient, prices are on the high end. Patio was hot for dinner, indoors got crowded as we ate.

We booked a table here on a Tuesday night on a recommendation of a friend. It was very busy even at 8pm so booking is essential! The the restaurant decor is traditional and comfortable and the menu is small but exciting! My husband was thrilled...to see the note at the top of the menu informing the diner that the pizza crusts come well done and charred (unless otherwise requested). We ordered the 10” Mushroom conserva with caramelised onion and Brie, and the Brocolini, preserved lemon and Goat’s cheese (without the bacon) pizzas. The flavours were so unique and very good! Even though we were pretty full after that we couldn’t resist the ice cream too! Portions are generous! I ordered the small pecan and toffee topped with brownie chunks: thought I couldn’t eat it all but couldn’t stop myself!! Small was two large scoops, and large was over 3 scoops!! They have a great selection of craft beers too….overall a very enjoyable meal!More

The manager was rude and very unwilling to discuss a change of reservation to add one additional person. When we arrived with 6 people which was the original number of people in the reservation, the bartender was rude and told us we had arrived 10...Minutes late and they were unable to seat us even though the restaurant was wide open.More

Our concierge told us about this place. Went on Friday night and, after our blitzkrieg tour of MA/NH/ME, we actually returned to Boston just to back a couple nights later. Service was great but the pizza.....dang, the pizza. Phenomenal. They don't skimp on toppings and...serve it well done. The sauce was in perfect proportion...not too much, not too little. The crust was equally perfect. Not too thick, not too thin. Total Goldilocks action going down. Also, I eat a lot of salads but their citrus/beet salad was memorable. I don't even like beets and I'll be thinking of this thing for a long time. Go to this place. It's insanely good.More

After a rainy day of touring the city, we were looking for a quick dinner close to our hotel. They were pretty busy with takeout orders but still gave us excellent dine in service. The server was friendly and helpful. We had a build your...own pizza and they were able to do a half/half pizza for us. The pizza was great but I think next time I would go with the light char option. We also had an order of the Mac & cheese- awesome! and an order of the meatballs also awesome! The ice cream was incredible- we got that to go. I would definitely go back!More

This restaurant is in a really nice part of Boston that's very good for walking. The outdoor seating is excellent when the weather's nice, but the interior also has a great atmosphere. Ordered a pepperoni pizza and a caesar salad and both were excellent. The...thin-crust pizza was cooked to perfection and the caesar salad had great dressing. For dessert, ordered ice cream and it was the best part about the dish. The flavors are always changing, but there's usually something unique to try.More

The pizza and ice cream are very good but what sets this place apart is: 1. The Caesar salad is the BEST I have ever had. Their dressing must be homemade, and the dressing you hope for every time you order a Caesar. Ditto the...croutons. Lettuce is cold and fresh, anchovies are real, and the whole combo is PHENOMENAL. 2. Hot fudge. It is also the real deal, bittersweet and made from real chocolate, cream, etc. Nothjng fake here. LOVE this place, and will be back again and again. It is worth the wait.More
