    Amazing pizza & very dog friendly

    Besides the pizza being amazing, when they brought our water, they also brought Hilton a bowl of water! The hostess and our server were both awesome.

    Sitting outside and Chilling.

    What a great place. Brought Kai and really chilling on the patio. It's bigger than other post stated. I"m counting 16 tables on the patio. The staff are amazing and do what they can to help us.

    Overpriced. Underwhelming And Time Consuming.

    small patio that was everyone else’s choice of seating without dogs so had to wait over an hour to be seated. and nothing really dog friendly besides they say dog friendly patio, no water for our pup. pizza way overpriced for what it is and took a long time considering we ordered basic and for two.i would leave a one bone review but save those for the worst of worst.... at least they had a patio but that shouldn’t really be considered dog friendly. pub dog is minutes away and if you are a real dog lover take them to a place they will actually love

    Wonderful Pizza

    Due to Covid the outdoor seating was limited so we made a reservation as it’s a really popular restaurant. They were super dog friendly and the food was excellent, if a tad pricey.

    Best Pizza, seriously!!

    First off - the comment below me should be deleted...Norma didn't even eat here!!!

    I heard about this place from the Airbnb I was staying at and wanted to check it out. This is BY FAR the best pizza I've ever had. But seriously! I live in Chicago and spent significant time in Italy...this is the most authentic tasting Neopolitan style pizza I've had in the US. I wish I could say I'm exaggerating, but I'm not. I got their signature pizza called the Rustica - comes with house made dough, cheese and sauce with prosciutto and baby arugula. Part of the pizza crust is stuffed with a garlic-ricotta filling. It is by far heavenly. I sat on the patio with my pup. He was provided with water and plw ty of pets and hellos by everyone. It was a bit chilly out but they had plenty of heaters going. The staff is welcoming and very knowledgeable on all ingredients. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Perfect dinner on the road. Amazing martinis!

    Passing through Colorado Springs. Found on BringFido.com. The patio was inviting and comfortable, the staff was warm and friendly, the Lee Gin martinis were just what the doctor ordered and the pizza from the wood burning oven was perfect. Love this place!

    Best Pizza Ever

    According to our 10 year old son who went with us. This was the best pizza ever as he told the waitress about 15 times throughout the time that we were there. They have a smaller outside patio area that has plenty of shade. They immediately brought a dog bowl with water in it for our pooch, as well as a small cup of treats. I was really worried after looking at the menu that it wasn't very kid friendly(authentic italian dishes and no kids meal). but after ordering a 5 cheese pizza for my two boys(10&7) they demolished it. They treated our dog great, were patient and great with the kids, and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend this pizzaria to take the pooch to

    Good atmosphere, good food, reasonably priced and loved the dog

    No reviews have been posted in almost a year, so here is mine. We requested reservations (5PM Saturday) for the patio since we were going to the dog park beforehand. Reservations cannot specify inside or outside, so we thought it would be a gamble, but there was tons of space outside. Our corgi got a huge bowl of water right away along with a handful of decent treats for us to give to her. The staff was extremely friendly to both us and our dog. The patio had a nice amount of shade. We ordered the Rustica pizza and had our order within about 10 minutes and it was delicious as well as under $20 with two sodas. The only improvements I would like to see are hitches to attach your dog leash to - we tied ours around the base of the table and it kept getting tangled around the feet of the table, but there were no better spots that would hold her. Only a minor annoyance and I would still recommend this restaurant to anyone who will listen.

    great dog friendly place

    They have a large patio that is comfy for you & dog. They provide dog bowls and water, the wait staff is really dog friendly and a few who weren't even our waitress came to say hi to my dog. The good is really great too! We had salad and a pizza, both really fantastic! We will definitely be back!!!

    Dog Friendly!

    I've been to this establishment 2x, and both with my dog and several others. The staff is very accomodating and friendly with the dogs (and their owners). The restaurant has pizza, anti pasto and some deserts. The pizzas are cooked in wood oven , I believe. I haven't been disappointed yet. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant.
