Go, enjoy the pizza, enjoy the neighborhood, but then do what is right and don't move there... you will ruin it. We enjoyed a casual dinner by the big open windows. Dog after dog after dog was being walked by their families. We love the people and dog watch so we got the best of both. The busy restaurant put out pizza after pizza and we saw lots of happy eaters.

The pizza is very good, but would like more meat. Staff works very hard yet remains very friendly. Very popular spot so expect a 30 minute wait. Limited ambiance because of high turnover and noise.

By giving it an excellent review, my future wait time will increase. Nevertheless, I came for the pizza only and was pleased. I did see waiters (females and makes) dealing with lots of half eaten pizzas to go. The pizza is better eaten after being made in the restaurants. For those who actually came to get a table and eat an entire pizza, please get yours to go next time. You ordered a pizza and took half of it home.

Cute space, lots of windows. Nice staff. This place was loud with wild children. Food was just ok, average. We had cocktails for HH, they were well made. We got here a couple min after the place opened and it was already around 80% full. For the price they charge, we expected more ‘oomph’. And it took us 40 min to get our pizza. Honestly a bit disappointing; it wants to be a Neapolitano pizza-esque place but it was either under seasoned or just lacked balance. We had prosciutto pizza and an appetizer. As a whole, everything was just “ok”. Pizza dough lacked flavor (tasteless). Sauce was just sauce but again nothing makes it stand out. All in all not a memorable place (sadly). We have other pizza places to go explore which we haven’t been to yet and I think we’d rather do that…not really enticed back to Ken’s Pizza (now Ken’s Bakery is a different story – it’s amazing).

A wonderful place to dine, great open window experience on a nice day, phenomenal pizza, bread and salads! We had 4 pizzas between 6 of us, and that was the perfect amount. As a bonus, our server was fun, energetic, and an all around wonderful addition to the evening. Delicious pizza, crispy, cheesy and flavorful, I wholly enjoyed the experience!
