Serious Pie (31 Jan)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
Believe it or not, this past week was my first time ever in Seattle and I loved it! Not only is the city cool and beautiful (yes it was sunny out), but it is a fantasy land for the taste buds! Great pubs, wine bars, restaurants and last and def not least pizza! Serious Pie was recco'd to us by a client and they hit it right on the head. Great thin crust pizza. Following the amazing gourmet pizza craze. Apps are amazing, but the pizza was even better. The place is small, but long shared / communal tables - makes it fun and interactive with others around you. Great service and suggestions by the staff. On thee way out the owner and staff all are super cool and ask about your pizza, experience. Great personal touch. Highly recommend this p.lace if in Seattle

Went here with my family over the Christmas holiday and I have to say this place definitely brought on the holiday cheer. Beautiful, italian restaurant. Has a little wine bar in the front and a market that sells cheese, cured meats, breads and olives. The sights and smells in this place is wonderful and we haven't even sat down yet. The staff is very knowledgable and they have pairing suggestions for wine and pizza. The pizza is fabulous. This is not your typical pizza, it is of the gourmet trend sweeping the nation. The wood fire oven cooks the crust to perfection and the sauce is amazing. There is a wide range of choices for toppings / pies. I got the Salsiccia: tomato sauce, mozzarella and Italian sausage. The toppings were great and the cheese perfect. I would highly recommend this place to whomever is in the area
Pizza Politana (20 Dec)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
Walking around the Ferry Building in San Francisco has many advantages: incredible food, fresh produce, great wine, people watching, fun shops, gorgeous views of the SF Bay and now a great pizza stand in front! Don't get me wrong, this isn't a permanent fixture, but a traveling pizza stand (usually in front of Bay Area farmers markets). I got the classic, the margherita pizza. Cooked in a wood-fire oven. $8 for a personal pizza - not bad. The crust was superb! The sauce, amazing, the cheese was great. Highly recommend this place if you happen upon it...of course, you can also follow them on Twitter for latest updates on where they are serving up their great pies! @PizzaPolitana

While we came here to check out their beers I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try a new pizza. I opted for the margherita. The crust was great. Not too thick, not too thin. The cheese was good and fresh tomatoes. All said, was good, but not great. Would recommend for the lunch and beers. Right off the beach and in a great town. I'd come back but looking forward to trying other pizzas in the area

  • Currently 2.0/5 Stars.
Ehhh what do you expect a Chilis and pizza there at that. Chewy crust bur decent cheese. Would ever recco this but hey if yours stranded....
  • Currently 3.0/5 Stars.
Had a lot of fun here. Coal woos burning oven. Great think pizzas. Good sauce and crust. Lacked some flavor but it was good. One of the nicer places in Santa Rosa
Cafe Zoetrope (25 Oct)
  • Currently 3.0/5 Stars.
Like a lot, not loved. The place is cool and a landmark. Great to sit outside with a group. The pizza is gourmet thin crust. The crust was awesome, but the toppings could have been better, good price for what you get. I would def come back with friends. Great house (Coppola) wine too!
Flour & Water (10 Oct)
  • Currently 5.0/5 Stars.
I've heard so much hype about this place that it was hard to walk in without feeling like this better be the best pizza ever. I mean Obama was turned away as he didn't have reservations. We got there on a Sunday at doesn;t even open until 5:30...but there was still a line waiting 15 people deep. Tables are limited and reservations even more so. We got 3 pizzas: First the Salsiccia. WOW! This one was just amazing. The crust is sooo good. Perfectly cooked. The sauce was amazing and there was an oil or something on this pizza that was just incredible. It was my favorite of the 3. Next we for the Funghi pizza. This was also incredible. The mushrooms were fantasic and the sauce again and the crust were outstanding. Last was the classic...the Margherita. This one was the least impressive (although I usually use as my deciding factor on how good the pizza is). I think it was just sitting out longer than the others. Long story short - this place rules! I highly suggest coming here with a small group. Tables and space is ezxtremely limited and you will almost undoubtly be waiting...but well worth the wait.
Rubirosa ( 4 Oct)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
Loved it! Maybe one of the best gourmet pizza places in NY. It's small, so tables are crowded. But the apps and pizza make up for it. Pizza is realm thin crust with sauce and cheese spread out like it should be. The sauce is what's makes this pizza. I kept mine plan, but there are a lot of toppings options.

I knew the place would rule, but I was seriously shocked at just how good the pizza was. We got the 4 cheese pizza and meatballs, but it took a while to decide becuase all the options looked awesome. Thin crust, cooked to perfection. The cheese, melts in your mouth (and not cause it scaulding hot), and the sauce, my god man the sauce!!!! This might be my favorite pizza joint in San Francisco. The beer / tap selection is limited, but what choices they have are great. they also have wine on tap! And great wine. Love this place and will recco it to everyone I know. My only complaint...a ton of kids were there. Might be the fact that we went at 6:15pm, might be the fact that it was in Pac Heights...but the screaming kids was the only negative about this place.
