Diner Reviews
  • "Very good wood fired oven pizza, first visit and not disappointed. Try the apple pizza, delicious."

  • "I had a reservation for 8:30. When I walked in at 8:20, the man (owner?) couldn't seem to find me at first. Then he admitted to me that they had a table big enough but they broke it up and accused me of being late. The food was mediocre. Nothing to write home about. Bruschetta - Bread was soggy. Was very bland. Fried Mozzarella Sticks - Run of the mill, pretty bland as well Wood Burned Delight Pizza - Expected a lot more from the "best pizza place in town" Could've stayed home with a Digiorno Broccoli And Rainbow Rotelli - Very bland, no taste Chicken Tequila Fettuccine - This I actually liked. Pretty flavorful Chicken Florentine - Also pretty flavorful. Chicken was juicy Fettuccine Alfredo - SUPER bland. Had absolutely no taste"

  • "Just like the sign on the door says, best pizza. Atmosphere is not the draw but the pizza and pasta are great and the staff is fun. Garlic rolls are a must! Wish they delivered."

  • "Our family dines here a lot. Love their pizzas and garlic rolls. Pasta also good and wait staff is fun! Great for takeout too. Wish they delivered - we'd order at least twice a month. Looking forward to the new location at Sierra Madre and Foothill/Walnut."

  • "We ordered the 3 Cheese and Seafood pizzas. Fresh ingredients and perfectly cooked. Very tasty. The Spring Salad mix with the lime-vinagrette dressing was very good also."

  • "Service was quick, courteous, and mostly attentive. The food was good, noting that it was not outstanding or innovative. I had the antipasto salad and prosciutto pizzza, while my date had the spring mix salad and the Avanti special. My antipasto salad was OK. Something you could put together at home with little effort. The prosciutto pizza was tasty with a nice thin crust and a good amount of flavor. My date loved the spring mix salad's lime-herb dressing and i must agree after tasting, it was pretty good. The Avanti special pizza, though, left the taste of the salad flat and failed to impress. Enough so that we traded pizzas. I found it OK, but nothing deserving the "Best Pizza in Pasadena" advertisement. Would I return? Not sure"

  • "I've eaten here in the past and have always enjoyed the gourmet pizzas. This time I thought I'd try the Seafood Pizza and it was really delicious! Not fishy at all and as excellent as the other gourmet pizzas I've had."
