A good concept well-executed and certainly one of the best pizzas you'll find in San Antonio. It's extremely casual and perfect for days when you want a night out but can't be bothered to cook.

I took a date here a couple weeks ago and it was absolutely perfect. It's a classy, neighborhood type feel. The wait staff was courteous and knowledgeable.

The lasagna was probably the best I've ever had. I was expecting the usual marinara-heavy plate but was greeted by a deep, perfectly-baked dish. It was rich, flavorful, delicious, and topped with spinach leaves that were a surprising complement. I prefer things spicy, and was pleasantly surprised the red pepper on the table had a little more kick than most. My date also loved her meal and described it as "light" and "refreshing". The restaurant has 3 rooms. The 1st room has large windows looking out onto the patio and the street. The 2nd room is more private, and the 3rd room houses a long, unique bar. The bananas foster was a perfect way to end the meal. I'll definitely recommend it to friends, strangers, and return when the opportunity presents itself.

I really enjoyed the food but the servers were more interested in everything else but waiting tables. Talking amongst themselves. I got up and got more water and served my table the 3 bottles of wine I purchased.
I'm a waiter, I get it, but for some stupid reason the wait staff were really put out.
They have an opportunity to really make some bank.
I'll eat in a 2-star food establisment, if the service is good. Food great! service sucked.

Prices have recently gone up. Food was cold on arrival. They didn't seem to care. Even Chili's serves my food warm, even if it's been under a heat lamp for a few minutes.

Everything came out extremely under temp. Half my veggies didn't even seem cooked.

Amazingly, they still billed me for the full total...

PLEASE AVOID! There were flies everywhere in there. Very unpleasant, considering their new pricing scale is 12/16/20. 8/12/16 would have been suitable. The new one isn't.

I told them I was disappointed about the price modifications. I was informed that the web site would be updated soon. As of last check, their web site doesn't exist anymore. Confused...
