Oh, Nostalgia. What happened to you? I think trying to keep up with the Jones’s, has caught up to you! My husband and I absolutely love this once hidden gem. You’ve raised your wine by the glass prices to a ridiculous amount, and it’s just bigger than a thimble. All the small (very small) pizzas coming out, including ours-were slightly burnt. You got rid of the antipasto plate (Nostalgia’s version of a charcuterie board), and no more pasta side choices to add to your meal. I know you’re preparing to move to a bigger and “better” location, which I assume is the reason for some of the exorbitant price changes, but at the cost of your original charm and appeal. I understand you have to grow with the community, but I hate to see you become just another pizza place in the area. A saving grace was that the food and service were still good, just felt a bit disappointed compared to all our previous visits. Still, we wish you all the luck in the world in your new location, and hope you maintain some that original charm.

Garlic bread and pizza was amazing! Portions are smaller than most places, ingredients are very fresh. It is pricey, so it is more of an occasional treat.

Great experience. We used Open table to reserve a spot for us and it was waiting for us when we walked in. Our waiter was great, food was very good. I few more menu options may have been nice and it was a little loud for one of our guests who is hard of hearing.

The menu consists of a handful of small plates, soups, salads, pasta dishes, and deserts, but the main focus are the wood fired pizzas. There are about a dozen house options with build-your-own available too. The daily specials offer more appetizers, daily soup, and some additional specialty pizzas. Bottle beer and glass/bottle wine options are available.

The pizza is the main focus and they do a strong job. Ingredients are fresh with creative options in addition to traditional favorites. The pizzas are available in a personal 4-slice or a larger 8-slice option.

The interior has a clean nice look. Service staff is friendly although busy at times. The hard floors and open ceilings make for a noisy environment at peak times.

If you are in the area, it is worth stopping in for a pie!

The server was forgetful of requests. It seemed as if the restaurant was slightly understaffed or requires more computers to process payment. Other than that, food was amazing and came out quickly. Value was amazing. I will be coming back! If you haven't tried this place out, it's time to try them out ASAP!
