Didn’t like the pizza
So sorry to hear that, thank you for giving us a try.
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.
Great food and quick service. Friendly staff eager to please customers.
Thank you Timothy
The appetizer was great but the pizza was a bit soggy. I will go back again and order a different pizza type.
Thank you for stopping in, if there are any issues with your pizza, please let us know. We want want you to leave impressed.
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.
Thank you Nick, That is exactly what we are going for... we so appreciate our customers we want them to feel welcomed and relaxed for a nice dinner.
Great unique meal. They were out of a few items. Pizza was very good.
Thank you Greg, unfortunately we have not been immune to some of the supply chain issues. Hopefully if we see you again we'll have everything back on the menu.
It seemed there was a nat problem. The pizza was then cold when served.
Thank you, we were finally able to address this, they were driving us crazy as well.
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.
Thank you Stacey, We recently took over ownership and plan to address the pricing, especially for kids. Hopefully we can earn you business again.
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.
Thank you for trying our little pizzeria. So glad you enjoyed your visit.
The pizza was good, the place is nice, but it is too expensive. Even the best pizza is just a pizza at the end.
Thank you Faber. We recently took over ownership and are considering addressing the pricing.
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!!
I am so sorry about your experience. We addressed some of these issues already, we had to change over some staff and put our current staff through ServeSafe training. If you do give us another try, we hope to improve your experience dramatically.
Found this place through open table when we were looking for a dinner spot on a Saturday night while in Colorado Springs. It was the menu and brick oven that attracted us and we were very pleased with the pizza and beer choices.
Thank you Steve, and we plan to continue to offer different and good beers and wine. Hope to see you again.
Unique pizza, pricey beverages ! Service just ok!
Thank you Kevin
Great meal. So glad the new owners have kept up the excellence we are accustomed to. Will return!
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.
Thank you Denise, glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for the feedback on the bar, that is an area we are looking to improve. I enjoy Ketle One too, so that may have to be added.
Everything was delicious! Never been disappointed.
Thank you!!! We are in the process of training new cooks and we and appreciate the feedback!! Please come again.
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.
The waitress was very unfriendly and not much attention was paid to us. They were out of a lot of stuff and we didn’t like our drinks. Nothing was done to make the visit better
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!
The best pizza in Colorado Springs and it's not close. Good beer and cocktail selection as well. Great for a date, a work party, or just you and your pizza adventure.
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!
This is such a great place for amazing authentic Italian pizza!
Service was outstanding. Food is excellent, from the salads to the main dishes to desert. This place is an excellent value.
Nicky was an awesome server. She was a hostess and then took it upon herself to be our waitress. She was attentive and had a great sense of humor. We think she should be promoted to manager
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.
The waiter wasn’t able to provide the proper level of service as their wasn’t enough wait staff for the number of diners.
This is one of our favorite places in the Springs. Food is always amazing and service is fantastic. If you are looking for authentic Napoli pizza this is the place.
Pizza was burnt but the crust in the middle was raw
Excellent food and atmosphere! Authentic Napalatana Pizza from Naples, Italy.
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.
We have visited here several times over the last few years. Have always had a great experience here. Good food, excellent choice of adult beverages and great service. They do have outdoor seating which is nice too. Highly recommend this eatery....it is local!
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.
We had the most polite server ever. My boys and i have been traveling for a week and stopped in for dinner. Amazing food and amazing people. Thr Nutella dessert......WOW
Enjoyed Dining At Basil & Barley with a friend. Recommend this place for dinner. Their Italian salads are top notch and you won't find them ln any other regular restaurant. They have a good wine selection and wait saff are knowledgeable about pairing wines with your food selection.
Everything we’ve had here has been excellent, pizza, pasta and deserts. Recommended!
Thank you very much David
Wonderful way to enjoy our anniversary dinner! Thank you!
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.
We picked this place for one of our vacation destinations based on reviews and our love of wood-fired pizza. We were seated by a cheerful hostess and then sat for 10 minutes while we perused the menu and watched the hostess take food to tables, seat customers, deliver extra plates and handle carry out customers. The hostess approached our table and asked if anyone had approached our table yet, apologized when we told her no,and took our drink and food order since we had been there so long. We ordered drinks, including a glass of wine, a salad to share, and 2 specialty pizzas. When my husband’s soft drink arrived, he reminded the hostess/waitress about my wine. She told us she was underage and it would have to be served by the waiter. It was at that point we noticed another employee who had been seemingly MIA for most of the time we had been there. Suddenly, our pizzas arrived, followed by our salad. Our table was small and there was little room. Then we were brought plates and a rotary pizza cutter and condiments, also on plates. Still hadn’t gotten my glass of wine. We barely managed everything on our table and removed the unneeded plates and menus that still hadn’t been collected by setting them on the bar. My husband had to approach the waiter behind the bar, who was leaning back fiddling with his electronic device, about the wine. He eventually brought it. We clumsily divided the salad onto our 2 plates and sliced our pizzas which had been made and served so quickly. The crusts were limp and soggy and the pizzas were barely warm, which defies belief after having been baked in a 1000 degree oven.
The hostess/waitress was attentive and apologetic when we told her how everything was, offering us a free dessert and suggesting we not tip, booth of which we refused. We were there less than 45 minutes!
