I love this clean and tasty pizza place on the Drive.
The crust is refreshing and a tad addictive!
Great for a pizza joint; and you feel healthy too! We order pizza here on a fairly regular basis, or at least grab a slice when we need a quick snack. Check it out!

My husband and I went here for Dine Out tonight - no reservations needed which was nice for our spontaneous mood.
For a $15 menu this place out-did itself! The portion sizes weren't huge, but just enough to get a feel for the place.
Starters: My husband had the chowder (Which tasted delicious!) while I had the spinach salad (quite tasty as well). I wished I'd gotten the chowder though..
Main: We both had the steak - a smaller cut, but a decent piece of meat none the less. AND it was cooked the way we asked. Having visited a $35 dine out restaurant recently, we were terribly disappointed with the cut and how it was cooked. This was a refreshing change!!
Dessert: The Brownie and the cheesecake were both delicious and we left the restaurant feeling pleasantly full.
The Waitress was also really friendly!
Would definitely recommend this for the $15 menu - or for any night you want to hang out on the Drive.
Just be careful - the music can be a bit loud at times..

The restaurant has a really cool feel to it, the wait staff was quite prompt and friendly.
Four of us went for Dine Out - we had mixed reviews in the end..
Starters: The carpaccio was fantastic, and the beet salad was really tasty.
Main: The steak wasn't as good as I'd expect. If I had paid normal price for it, I would have been extremely disappointed. It was flat, tough and over-cooked.
The braised Lamb shanks were tasty but the accompanying polenta while good, was a little lumpy.
The Salmon was enjoyable, but tasted a bit too fishy.. perhaps not as fresh as one would hope.
Dessert: The gingerbread pudding was to die for. The accompanying pumpkin gelato was delicious, but the ginger gelato was a bit much (really really gingery). The chocolate mousse was extremely rich and thick. But still delicious for all you dark chocolate lovers.
All in all a pretty good night - the starters and dessert were the winners, while the main courses fell a little flat. Some of us felt the $35 price tag was steep.. maybe more of a $25 meal.

Having read some reviews on this site I was a little apprehensive about our Dine Out reservations last night. But all in all we were pleasantly surprised with our evening!
The wait staff were prompt and friendly and the Dine Out menu wasn't half bad. There were four of us dining out so we got to see a range of dishes. The Baked Brie was pretty tasty, although it could have done without the sweet chili sauce drizzle (I'm pretty sure that wasn't sambal olek, but maybe I'm wrong). The yam fries were quite tasty and a huge portion. The crab cakes were quite greasy and a little cold, "meh". The tuna had way too much soy glaze on it, otherwise it would have been fine. Order it on the side so you can dip it if you want to, otherwise that meal was fine. The chicken was really tasty - the stuffing inside made all the difference and livened up the meal. Desserts were pretty decent, chocolate mousse was light and creamy, while the cheesecake was sweet and "fresh" tasting.
The drinks were good, the food was ok, the wait staff was ok, and the place was pretty busy for a Monday night.
I think it would be a good place for some drink specials and appies with friends.
