    Yelp says full bar, it's not beer and wine. Pizza was very good.

    Bring a friend and share a sampler! St. Gallen cheese was our favorite & shallot marmalade is a must!

    The salty pig pizza is full of meat and super tasty. Pizzas are big, a pizza and a starter are more than enough for 2
  • Bader A.
    I had the Fratelli pizza. The toppings were really good, but the actual pizza crust wasn't that good, it looks good but it tastes bland.

    Cool vibe. Service was just "ok". Neat and cheeses were very good and decent wine and beer selection. Outside patio closed at 10p which was a negative in my opinion.

    Their white pizzas like the Broccoli Rabe are much like German "Flammkuchen". Which is a good thing.

    Pizza's are not personal sized but if you can eat it all you are going too. They are that good. You can add extra toppings if you like...and you should! The beer and wine selection is also solid.

    The Hostesses & bartenders weren't very friendly or customer service oriented. Our waiter was awesome (forgot his name though) and my charcuterie board was great. Definitely try the smoked chorizo!

    Protip for the D-Bag customers: This isn't grade school, you can't hold seats at a bar that has like 10 seats. Also; no, they don't have Bud or Blue Moon or hard liquor... Maybe try some place else?

    Not the best place to eat. The pizza is plain tasting and the pisco sours are awful. Plus, the background music is stuck on some 90's alternative rock station :P
