Staying near Asheville, we visited this little pizza hideaway after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The pizza is delicious, service with a smile and the ambiance is pure NC mountain country. Packed with locals, great find.

Probably my favorite spot for pizza in Black Mountain. But they do have other offerings, which my wife usually selects.

This was the second time we ate at this restaurant. My complaint is mostly directed at the untrained wait staff and their disregard to quality service. I ordered a Greek salad with no onions and little feta only to get a salad full of onions...More

I agree with Conrad. It is best eaten at the restaurant. The wood oven gives it a taste you want to enjoy immediately on site.
