    They have a few secret weapons, like two pizza ovens (a Neapolitan one and an electric-deck number for Sicilian and “classic Italian” styles), cocktails by former Bourbon & Branch bartender Read more

    The Californication pizza is so delicious with the combination of arugula, goat cheese and prociutto. The heat from the padron peppers just takes this pizza to another level!

    you really wanna have the Californication, is so good that it made me wanna eat 3 if I could. Cocktails are fantastic, try the Derringer, Eva Peron and the Mela Amara. Desserts are on my next visit.

    The arancini con pesto di prezzemolo is just an amazing appetizer: saffron riceballs cooked perfectly with a great crunch and complimentes with the wonderful pesto.

    Popped in for dinner and tried a couple apps, salad, pizza and dessert. Really enjoyed the rice balls and the potato pizza! Service was lacking but it just opened so will let that slide this time.

    Pro: They gave our toddler a chunk of raw pizza dough to play with while we waited (nice touch). Con: The pizzas took a loonnnng time to arrive. Tasty pies, for sure, but not the pizza of dreams.

    Finocchio flower power and Bianca are both fabulous pizzas - made by Falkner herself. So was the simple pasta. Cool to see Next Food Network Star's winner Justin Werner sitting at the bar.

    It's no surprise the Finocchio Flower Power pizza won the world pizza championship, its probably one of the best pizzas I've tasted. The fennel sausage is abaolutely superb!

    They can make any of their pizzas gluten-free: the Californication was fantastic. Also get the sparkling red wine and the tartufo (which can be made gluten-free as well).

    The restaurant fills up after 7 so come early or be prepared to wait a little. The bartenders are quite friendly and the drinks are thoughtful and delicious!!

    Don't bother getting the Olive Fritte since they start you off with a plate of free olives. Winners, Finocchio Flower Power and the Bianca pizzas.

    Finocchio Flower Power pizza is indeed fantastic. The tartufo is delicious and the bartenders make some fantastic drinks - we had a lovely time.

    Sit near the pizza oven for some added warmth. Don't be afraid to chat up Chef Falkner if she's not crazy busy. She's very nice

    Great food and super-nice folks. Loved the rice balls, garlic knots and of course the pizza. Worth the trip wherever you are.

    For pizza, we recommend the Finocchio Flower Power ($16). Desserts like the Cannolo and Tartufo are definite winners.

    Check that they've got sufficient supplies before you wait: after more than an hot waiting, they RAN OUT IF PIZZA DOUGH. What. Yes. Exactly.

    Being that this is Elizabeth Falkner's restaurant, be sure to get dessert. The tartufo is absolutely amazing.

    They need a lot of help on their carry out services. Can't call ahead and usually no bags. That said, food is tasty.

    Elizabeth Falkner’s wood-burning pizza place serves classic pies, pasta dishes, and Italian desserts.

    With everyone on the Flower Power pizza, the cavalo nero salad is great, and Six Point Crisp is $4 which is basically PBR priced.

    Pizza's solid, service is hilariously bad, but all that's forgiven by the gianduja tartufo to cap off the meal.

    Pete Wells raves about the Finocchio Flower Power pizza, "an essay on the theme of fennel."

    Gianduja tartufo is *amazing*. Definitely leave room for dessert.
