First, forget about the terribly stupid name. This is a new pizza place in Celebration at Six Forks. Hey, at least they don't have pictures of Sinatra, Dean Martin and the Sopranos.

It's a pizza place, plain and simple. It's not bad, really. I only tried the cheese slice and the "Red and White" specialty slice. The plain was pretty decent, the specialty less so, especially at its premium price. They usually have Sicilian by the slice but did not when I was there because the dough had overproofed. They serves "heroes" not subs, and know that calzones don't routinely have meat in them. I haven't had a hero yet, but they do bake their own bread. It doesn't necessarily mean it's good, but it might be. Starting Thursday, they will have ices from the Lemon Ice King of Corona. And the decor isn't too corny. (Full disclosure - there are pictures of my old 'hood and the neighborhood where I went to high school so I'm not impartial.)

On the down side, the owner is a little too much of a purist. Won't serve tea because they don't in NY. Won't put mayo on sandwiches (of course it's even criminal to ask) because they don't in NY. Won't serve ranch dressing get the point. There's authentcity and then there's just accomodating a customer's reasonable request. The pizza won't taste any different if he has tea in the place. The prices are a touch high, but not terrible.

I still think Pizza Italia on Westgate is better, but this place (I refuse to use that dumb name) is much closer to my office. It's an okay new pizza option in the area.
