Now that's caring. and the staff couldn't be more pleasant. if we lived nearby we would be regulars.

We had reservations and the table was ready for us. The service was super slow. Only one waitress for the entire dining room, which was filled. Everything moved at a snails pace, and glasses were not refilled. Food took forever. Many guests who arrived after us were served before us. Food came out in batches, not even close to at the same time. Bottom line, may be ok for a pizza for 2, but nothing more.

I had a calzone. The crust was amazing. But I'd asked for no peppers and it came with peppers. The sausage was OK but not great. This place is clean and good enough.

We had pasta with a really bad marinara sauce. The sauce had a potent artificial taste. Like it had about 10 times too much dried oregano in it. It also tasted like canned tomato paste. Awful. Our salad had no green parts of the lettuce in it. My husband had a bite of the salad and a bite of the pasta dish. The waitress was attentive and pleasant. But, we won't go back.

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

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.

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.

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

Probably our all time favorite is the Avanti special with bacon. The pizza dough itself is flavorful but combined with the saltiness of the bacon, the sweetness of the onion, the creaminess of the cheese and the aroma of the basil is divine. The small with the Cesear Salad is usually enough for the two of us (neither of us are big eaters). If we're especially hungry, we may throw in an order of the garlic knots which are also great. They have alot of other items on the menu as well and alot of inventive pizza topping combinations but we always seem to end up ordering our favorite.

The service is awful. Servers go out of their way to avoid eye-contact so you don't bother them. Very unprofessional bordering on disrespectful attitudes. Part of the problem was there was no team work/lack of good management and also too few servers with little experience when place gets busy. It is really too bad, because place has a lot of potential, but guess the owner not on top of his game... No matter how good food is it is not so unique, so with all the competition out there would rather go to CPK even if chain resataurant.. Guess if driving by and place not busy, might give them another chance but not any time soon.
