    really good! ONLY COME IF YOU HAVE A RESERVATION. Was told the wait would be 1.5 hours and it ended up being exactly three hours. Not worth my impatience, but worth it if there is some prior planning

    They open at 6pm, but they start taking names at 5pm. If you arrive at 6 the wait might be 2 hours, but they'll text you when the table is ready!

    Margarita Pizza is fantastic, reminiscent of of how pizza tasted in Sardinia as a kid. Combination of great ingredients and care👌.

    Semi-pro move: order your pie(s) pick-up and scoot over to the picnic tables at Cobble Hill Park if the weather's nice
  • Graham L.
    Simple and delicious. BYOB for the win.
  • Adam D.
    Calzones are amazing
  • Ben K.
    Top 5 pizza places for me. Get there before 6 or expect a 2 hour wait. Pizza is excellent but the calzone is the real star. Perfect meal: pepperoni pizza and shallot, basil, garlic calzone. It's BYOB!

    OH MY GOSH THE SAUCE IS UNREAL. also if you order a calzone, you get a big side of it for dipping. calling for pick up is the best to beat the wait if you live in the neighborhood.

    1st: small, focused menu ensures every/anything is good. Pro tip: pepperoni on side = oven-cooked crispylicious. Pro tip2: call ahead! Pro3: basil, garlic on everything. Pro4: side sauce calzone!

    Lemme guess, 2 hr wait on a Monday? Pro move: order a pie takeout, head to Floyd on Atlantic (they allow food), and dine like a king on leather couches.

    The calzone is sublime. Order it with garlic. Drink any leftover marinara.

    The pizza is great and rivals many of the New York giants, but the calzone is amazing and stands alone.

    Decent pizza, no more. The toppings are good quality but the crust is too cracker-y for my taste. If you don't get there BEFORE it opens, expect to wait. Don't believe the hype.

    It's a warm, welcoming, family-run spot. They really take care of you, even when you're waiting outside. Drop by an hour before opening to put your name down - at least 1 hour wait but SO WORTH IT.

    Fresh ingredients but very long wait, don't go with more than 4 people or in the summer- it's a mosquito fest outside

    Cash-only, BYO, no reservations, get the calzones. For Sunday group dinner arrive by 5:15p, worth the wait.

    Fantastic pizza but the real gem is the calzone, which is by far and away better than any other.
