5-7 pm pizzas are 12 for 9" and 18 for 12". Great pizzas. Appetizers are $7 during this time as well as drink specials. There is more casual seating downstairs.

The pizza is good brick oven pizza. They are healthy on the toppings but real skimpy on sauce. I got a Panini Grosso. It was very good. The potato chips were a little cheesy. It was a nice place. The service was good and the...More

Tasty food, relaxed dining. They did a good early evening meal deal in the bar downstairs. Good choice of local beers and happy to let me sample when I couldn't decide!

The pizza I had was lovely, although quite small for the price. My friend had a lovely salad, but again quite small. The food was good, and the service was outstanding. But, I would probably check out other pizza places in the area.

We ate here while walking around Georgetown. Parking anywhere in Georgetown is not easy, but there is a parking lot right behind the restaurant that is $10 per hour. We got a salad to share and it was fine. Not very large but very fresh...More

Fantastic pizza, fresh ingredients and lots of interesting options. Beet salad was just OK, disappointing as I was really looking forward to it! Good Beer selection and they take reservations.

We let our dough rise slowly, work it by hand, lightly grace it with the finest quality toppings, finish it with extra virgin olive oil and cook it in our beloved oven. As Phyllis Richman wrote about us, “[m]aking great pizza isn’t all that difficult. You need good yeast dough – left to rise long enough to develop the flavor. Then a tomato sauce of quality, cheese that’s delicious and fresh herbs from the garden, honest olive oil and vibrant to
