We were late to have a waiter come take our drink orders. The pizza was overloaded with sodium and not worth the price.

Service was slow and not welcoming Wine pours were smallest we have ever seen, in cheap glasses to boot. Pizza was good but not sure we would return due to service and wine pours. Expensive. We were looking forward to trying this restaurant and left disappointed.

So sorry to hear this... we train out staff to pour about 5oz which is what we usually see when we are out. We will keep an eye out to ensure they are pouring correctly. We recently took over ownership and are working to improve the wine selection, type of glassware, and several other things.

I like the open seating that has a private vibe. We sat in a booth and it was perfect for us. Our server was great in the sense that she seemed to have our needs timed perfectly on when she needed to be at our table. She made great recommendations and was fun. Food was great as always and we stayed to chat after dinner and didn’t feel pressured or rushed to leave.

We were excited to not try a chain restaurant while in town but a couple of big complaints I have is the cost vs portion sizes. My son’s kids meal was butter noodles and it was extremely small that even my 4 y/o ate the entire thing and with the drink, that we thought was included totaled $9, ($2.50 for a small kids drink). Then we ordered a bruschetta appetizer and it was 4 small pieces of bread with a small scope of bruschetta on top not even covering the full bread. Very disappointing for $10. The calzone was very good but came out burnt on one end. Oh and if you order a side of ranch it’s a small size for $2 and no one gave you that heads up before the bill came. The chicken parm had a spicy marinara sauce that we didn’t love but the chicken itself was great quality just again portion size vs cost seemed small. The staff was friendly overall but again, as a waitress educate your guests on sizes and/or extra costs so we can make a decision.

Visiting from Oklahoma and this was delicious. Service was a little slow but still extremely friendly. Don’t let that deter you from trying and having a beautiful Mountain View. The flavor and charcoal crust was so good! I could eat just the crust alone.

We have Hideaway Pizza where we are from and this 100% tops it flavor wise and unique combos.

The fried mushrooms were tasty too!

If we ever make it back to Colorado Springs, we will definitely try again.

Service was very poor. Waitress had to be called over several times. The cost did not match the food or service. Had hair in 1 of the dishes. Food served very inconsistent. Manager was very defensive and rude. Would not recommend this anyone!!

My daughter recommended this out of the way place and she was on target. The eggplant parmesan was delicious and the sauce was perfect on top. My husband ordered pizza and he really liked the toppings and crust. LaTroy our waiter was sweet and made me a special drink because the bartender was out. We will be back to taste the other specialties they have, the manager said they were expanding the bar/ wines. Hope they get Ketel One vodka, its my fav.

The food was good, burnt out crust a little too much but there’s a new owner so he’s in still learning the cooking times. The service was ok. Not thrilled that the waitress took the Liberty of pouring the large serving of wine and charged us for it Mares’s of ensuring we wanted the larger glass. I just hope the new owner doesn’t make changes to the food. We knew there was new ownership the second we walked in. There’s also a note at the door stating they are short staffed but there were at least 6 employees standing behind the front podium doing nothing.

Food was all great (tiny fried bread with mozzarella…yum), but Pizza is exceptional! We are Neapolitan snobs and enjoy finding true Neapolitan pizza when we travel. One day we will make it to Naples. But until then, this place is a must.! Oh, and enjoy the beautiful view of the mountains while you dine outside. Fabulous night. Service short handed but fantastic too. Thank you!

As always, the pizza was phenomenal!! Some restructuring of the menu has changed up some of the appetizers, and they weren’t as good as in the past. There was also some odd variation in the cocktails. I would say stick with the pizza and the Italian sodas and you can’t go wrong!

I’m not sure if this was because we were there on a weekday evening, but: the margherita pizza was blander than it is supposed to be, (if that’s possible), the eggplant parmigiana was a mountain of penne with a few, very thin, slices of eggplant mixed in, and the tiramisu was missing the coffee entirely. Most of the items on the dessert menu were not available. The appetizers were fantastic. The blood orange soda was good.

It became more of supporting a local business than actually enjoying the meal, that’s how fast the experience went downhill from appetizer to desert. I’ll try them out again sometime, once I can afford to.

I had the ziti Bolognese pasta. I took 2 bites and was done. It was over cooked, tasted burnt and had no flavor and not enough sauce. My server seamed upset and told me that they feel bad for charging me. I said I’m not taking this home. And at the end it was taken off my bill. I may try pizza next time because it’s hard to mess up pizza. I lived in Italy for 5 years and I can say that was not the same.

Must expecting a high quality pizza. It tasted ok, but the dough was not light and airy. You could not even cut it, because when you tried it just tore.

Being from the NY/NJ area this place would not last. They close at 8pm and I felt rushed. Appetizer came out and 30 seconds later so did pizza. Wings were supposed to be garlic and oil. I can confirm the oil, but no garlic.

Has a lot of potential.

Our server Nicole was great. She accommodated our seating preference when we asked to be changed. Very sweet and great attitude. Our beers were very good, our appetizer, also very good. We decided to order pasta instead of pizza this time. Very disappointing. Pasta was dry, had to ask for extra sauce for the chicken Alfredo, they brought at small dish with about 2 tablespoons of sauce. Also ordered the eggplant parmigiana, again dry pasta and 1 thin slice of eggplant, more breading than eggplant and had no flavor. Love their pizza, guess that’s what we’ll be sticking to.
