The best pizza on the other side of the bridge , no other comes close .
Decent overpriced pizza served terribly.

One friend asked if the zuppa of the day (white bean) had wheat in it (he is allergic). The waitress said she didn't know, and wait for my friend to say whether he wanted it or not. He waited for her to come up with a way to find out if there is wheat in the soup (awkward!), and slowly it dawned on her to ask the kitchen staff. She did and came back to tell us that no, it does not have meat in it. Wheat, said my friend, is there wheat in it. She said yes, wheat, there is no wheat in it. He took the chance. My friend ordered the calzone ($14) (listed under "Pizze") and I the montanaro fried pizza with fennel sausage . The soup came out a few minutes later, followed about ten minutes after that by my pizza, and then another ten minutes for the calzone. Granted we didn't ask for the soup with the main course, but we also didn't ask for the calzone for dessert. The soup was about half a cup of something that Progresso would be proud to put in a can, but disappointing for the price ($8). The montanaro pizza was pretty good, although the sausage was barely cooked and the crust fairly soggy. The calzone was a football sized and shaped monstrosity with a vaguely chemical taste, perhaps from the salami. This is a step up from the neighborhood slice shop at double the price.
