I'm always on the lookout for great wood-fired pizza. This place comes close with their crust, which is nicely bubbled and has a few charred spots, but it misses with the tomatoes/sauce, which seem fresh, but are not San Marzano tomatoes, like they use in Italy. The indoor atmosphere is fun, because you can watch the pizza dough being tossed.... More

Snowy cold evening, popped in and shared an excellent seafood pizza and lasagne between my partner and I. Fab house salad with great dressing, too much food so sadly left some. Great service, great good. Fab atmosphere even though it was midweek out of season and quite quiet. Def recommend.

We've truly become pizza snobs since we first tasted Fresh Pizza not long after they opened. Fresh truly sets the standard for wood-fired pizza and high quality, gourmet toppings. My favorite is the Mediterranean with feta, olives, spinach, and pine nuts. My husband's fav is the scarface meat pizza - he likes to substitute prosciutto for Italian salami. Literally EVERYTHING...

We like the bread, pizza and calzones. The wood char really adds good flavor. The service is good. Try the olives.
