Visited on various occasions over the past several months. The restaurant is located in the "South Hills" area of the city, a leafy, pleasant, and generally more affluent region. The establishment itself is in a small converted house, and seats relatively few patrons. Attention has been paid to ambiance, as the place has a cozy, comfortable feel to it. The pizzas are generally very well-conceived and executed, and feature a welcome departure from the normal options offered by local and national chains. The food is generally good enough to make the restaurant worth visiting for it, alone. The beer selection is limited to bottles, but features the best products available in the state; which essentially means heavy nods to Rogue, Sierra Nevada, Ayinger, the Trappist breweries, and Flying Dog. There isn’t much that is going to change your world, but prices are fair and the service is quite good. Perhaps one issue is that, due to the relatively small size of the place, waits can sometimes be lengthy. Still, this isn’t a major detractor for any seasoned restaurant patron, and doesn’t keep the restaurant from being absolutely worth visiting.

In South Hills, may be difficult to find for out of towners. They do have a small dedicated gravel parking lot just off of Bridge Road. They have some craft beers, fair Belgian selection, fair american, and a little german. All bottles no tap. Good gourmet pizza to choose from. Atmosphere is a big old house that has been converted into a restaurant. Service was pretty good the last visit.
