Cute place. Order at counter. Food delivered to your table. Loud inside. Nice patio seating. Great for kids and dogs. Service was pleasant. Moderately priced. Seemed pricey at $55 for a pizza and salad and two beers. Food was ok. Wouldn't rush to go back.

Pitfire has become one of our go-to places for a casual dinner. The pizza seems popular but we really like the pastas; tasty and excellent value. The lemonades are great, specialty sodas too, and there is a big beer menu. The ice cream custard covered cookie is a luscious dessert. Service is exceptionally friendly and quick.

Pretty good place. Great for the kids. Very loud inside. We usually sit outside due to dog. The patio area is a little tight but can squeeze in. Definitely not with a stroller. Service is great. They sometimes have water bowls for dogs. I thought they gave treats sometimes to the puppies. Food is good although not sure re the... More

This is a great pizza restaurant for young people, old people and families. They make individual pizzas for everyone but you can get a large family pizza but everyone I have seen usually order individual pizzas. They also have other Italian foods. They have dessert but we usually get ice cream for the children since we are full by the... More

My hubby and I enjoyed lunch here and loved our Pizza and Salad. The Caesar Salad is one of the best I have ever had! Whole, tender leaves of Romaine with homemade crunchy croutons that you could eat all by themselves-coated in delicious dressing. It was HUGE! Our pizza was laden with sausage, ricotta and a red pepper type sauce... More

Our go to place when visiting the grandchildren. Seasonal items and happy hour selections are posted on a blackboard. These are always unique and yummy! All items have natural, fresh ingredients and are house made. Pizza is really good and there are gluten free options as well. We love the chopped and caesar salads (enough for everyone to share). Reasonably... More

The very friendly and helpful staff gave us tips, answered questions and let us sample beers at our first visit. We took a chance on a specialty pizza with pumpkin and kale (turned out to be just a little of each) and fontina. It was delicious. The crust is crisp but a little chewy and the toppings were not overwhelming.... More

I ordered an unfolded pesto chicken pizza. It was nice. That's the best I can say. The chicken was a little dry and at the end, I was left wanting. It's not cheap when you add a drink either. The super friendly service and quick serving increased the place in my estimations.
