    gem of a spot. kale salad = perfect: crunchy breadcrumbs, fat golden raisins. grilled carrots feat. more flavor than a carrot's ever hosted. &: sausage/honey pizza w/serranos + a brown sugar lemonade!

    Everything is awesome, but you MUST get the sausage and honey pizza. It's crisp, light, and a perfect balance of salty and sweet. The honey drizzles over the crust and adds a tasty tint to the pizza.

    WORTH IT! Both for wonderful staff and food. We took a soppressata and a margherita, but the pizza was so delicious that we've had to ask for another one! Perfect crust, tomato & mozzarella very tasty

    This place is always full but my wife and I stopped in at 4:30 on a Saturday for an excellent experience. We shared a "small" salad, Brussels sprouts, and a pork shoulder dish. Delicious

    Meatballs were unexpectedly amazing (not covered in tomato sauce). Kale salad and grilled carrots are phenomenal. Pizza crust is thin, chewy, and delicious. True to Florence-style Italian pizza

    The sausage and honey tomato sauce pizza is amazing! The best tomato sauce I've had in a pizza - sweet with creamy mascarpone, while Serrano chile and jalapeño slices kick it up a notch.

    Wide selection of pizzas, my favorite was the special (grilled peach with goat cheese and bacon) but the honey sausage was popular among my friends. Waiters were attentive for our larger party.

    The roasted pears and Burrata were the bomb. If you remember anything, remember this: order the mint chip gelato; it is out if this world!

    Go in a group and order a few pies to share. You're gonna want to try every pie that comes to the table. Safe room for the affogato.

    The mushroom toast and carrots were very tasty. The sausage and honey pizza could have had a crisper crust; it was a little floppy to handle.

    The restaurant has great food so it's really popular. Sadly you can only make a reservation if you are a party of 5 or more. For this reason, it was over a 40 minute wait for our party tone seated.

    Mushroom toast. Any pizza. Want to keep costs down? Don't order wine. Other wise, best pizza on the peninsula.

    "Small" plates are huge. Veggie dishes are good but baroque: heavy on seasonings and oil.

    Prosciutto and pineapple pizza is pretty good, but ask to cook it without jalapeño peppers.
