A wonderful place to celebrate a birthday with the girls. Service was excellent, food was delish and the atmosphere was perfect. Walking distance from the theater we were going to made it even better.

This is one of our favorite places. The pizza crust is excellent and the combinations are delicious. Salads are also good. The seasonal special pizzas, which often include fresh fruit, are surprisingly good.

Loved the burrata & tapenade appetizer! And the fennel sausage pizza tasted just like Italy.

The pizza is amazing! I’m a total pizza snob and this left me with “damn! Dis gooood!!!” The booze selection is great and the appetizers are absolutely worth getting while sippin’ dranks and waiting for the pizza to be served.

Must try: the Burrata (holy smokes!), and any of the pizzas! Love the cocktail with Campari. Great wines on tap too! Love the food, drinks, and vibe of the place. Server was a little hard to get ahold of at times, but overall it was a great experience and I will be back!

Went for dinner with a group of women friends. I'm pretty picky about pizza, so I was very pleased that the pizza was excellent and so were the sides. Our group shared everything and it was all really tasty. Service was good. Friendly, efficient waitress. Would recommend to friends and even cross the river for a meal (I live on the east side so you have to really entice me to cross over to the west side. The only downside, and it's not your fault, is the parking situation.

Great place on the quieter end of 21st but still really central to downtown to meet friends for thin crust pizza and other tasty small plates along with a few PNW beer options. Plenty of room and the staff was cool with accommodating extra people which was much appreciated when doing a friends dinner.

Everything was fine. Seems like a really good family/neighborhood bar. No edginess to it. Cocktails, small bites and pizza's were all really good. Service was very attentive and friendly

Went to celebrate a friend's birthday and had a pretty eclectic group of people--middle aged to 70 year olds with different food preferences from vegetarian to Midwest meat and potato lovers.
The menu was great---offered something for everyone. Our server was so patient with us and answered all of our questions. The food was delicious and timely. we had started with appetizers--the meatballs were awesome, as were the artichoke and salmon dips. The pizzas were delicious and we all walked away happy. The atmosphere was casual and comfortable--very friendly. We will be back!

Fabulous pizza and wine list. Plus love the salads. Great service and ambiance. It was as perfect for our large group. We weren’t rushed and server was a pro at splitting the bil.
