Great pie just a little to greasy and not enough crisp.

With at least 6 artificially inflated scores of 10 or high 9s, unreasonable expectations have been placed upon this joint; and the bogus scores are clearly influencing many of the mid-to-high 8s that are not earned. Established in 2018, they use a Kuma Forni oven, which is a state of the art imported wood & gas burning Neapolitan oven with a rotating floor and temperatures upwards of 800° to cook the pizzas. They also use 3-day aged dough made from imported Italian flour in all of their pies. I’m not sure if it’s the type of dough or the lack of time spent in the oven, but this was some of the softest, most limp dough I’ve ever eaten…not an ounce of crisp. This is as doughy and soft as you could possibly make a cooked pizza. Loaded with a brownish flour caked underneath and around the chewy, crunchless crust; the texture of this pie is horrendous. At least they use housemade fresh mozzarella with a creamy, oozy, lava-like texture and fantastic flavor. I’m not sure what type of pizza they gave me; but it appears to be just cheese on top of the dough with practically no sauce. They say the sauce is made in-house as well but I couldn’t taste a lick of it; this pie is virtually void of any sauce or tomato taste. To make matters worse, the butter fat from the fresh mozz blend creates a vat of grease pooling within the cheese. With every bite, it was like an oil geyser gushing down my throat and dripping all over my hands. With the sauce MIA, the salty flavor from the excess grease prevails over all of the other ingredients. With the dough incredibly soft to begin with, the abundance of oil renders the pie unappetizingly mushy. Even looking past the fraudulent scores, this pizza was a monumental disappointment. The cheese is the only ingredient salvaging the overall rating from slipping into the sub-5s wasteland. I don’t mind a softer dough if it’s dynamically delicious, but this dough needs a heavy dose of crisping. Combine that with a stunning lack of sauce and putrid plethora of grease & oil; it’s just to much to overcome to make this pizza worth trying.

Really cool joint. Nice lady took my pizza out of some kind of pizza fridge. This is their "Margherita" pie. Could have used a little more basil but over great pie. Almost no flop or grease. Great undercarriage, crust chewy though. If you like a more chewy pie then you'll love this. It was very good.

Neapolitan style. Could be a little crispier but great taste. Very good pizza

Great taste with chewy dough in a good way. Little oily, but this pie is one worth returning to.

Sooooo good. I went with meatballs( made with lamb and pork) DEEEEELISH! The crust was crisp and tasty as was the sauce and cheese. I don’t know what took me so long.

Struck gold with this place. House made shedded fresh mozzarella as their regular cheese pie. Crust and sauce wow. Real cool place too.

A caveat to this review - this pie hit the box a good 15 minutes before eating. This pie suffers more than most because of that delay due to the use of fresh whole mozz, which stiffens up significantly when it cools. Nonetheless, I still think the score is right in the ballpark. Primarily it lacked flavor. The char to chew ratio was way in favor of chew. Lacking crunch and punch this pie barely made the 6s.

Absolutely perfect slice. Dough is crisp but not flakey. The cheese is made in house and so enjoyable. They have made an exact science of sauce to cheese ratio and their dough creation. Wow.

The best buffalo chicken pie I’ve ever had. Clean place, great service, definetly coming back for their other pizzas
