Absolutely agree with most reviews here. Service was zip, cleanliness, questionable. A virtually DIY experience as far as getting plates, cutlery, glasses, opening your own wine goes. We had the Pepe and the Verdure pizza - they were super tasty. It's a unique experience. There's definitely a pretence here but it's not what we all would expect from a restaurant - kinda fun if you expect a bit of attitude!

We were a bit unsure about this restaurant based on the exterior appearance but decided to try it out. While the service was slightly unorthodox, the pizza dinner was delicious and did not disappoint.

Im still in such disbelief on how we were treated...have never had anyone speak to women so angrily and with such hatred and anger, and over such a minor thing ( we had no awareness of because there is no sign or information)...something is terribly wrong (mentally) with the male owner (Bob?) The food was just ok...it wadd actually burnt. Seriously, even if the food was good we would NEVER go back there due to the owners craziness. It was overpriced too. Total disappointment. And not very clean either. LESS THAN ZEEO. Triple ick. :(

Never disappointed eating here. Fresh ingredients, innovative cooking, great wine pairings and the chance to share a table with new people. Love it!

This restaurant is a one of a kind. It is essentially a one person operation - chef, server, owner. One collects their own clean plate from a pile, silverware and napkins too and then pours a glass of wine from the one open red or the one open white. The entire menu on this night consisted of various types of pizza, with salad being the only other item on the printed menu. We ordered a funghi pizza and a salad. Salad was dressed nicely and consisted only of baby leaves of various sorts. The pizza was thin crusted and quite light. The toppings were fresh and delicious. No dessert, no coffee, no nothing else. Simple but limited. If you're interested in a fresh pizza, this is a great choice but if you're looking for an entire dining experience, this isn't the place you want to choose.
