Based on a tip from Lazar in, I decided to go for dinner there since I was in the area.

The place is brand new. Like, a bit rough around the edges, but in a polished, nice way, like they just unpacked some shiny stuff but didn't have time to put it away totally.

Service was excellent, friendly without being obtrusive. I think I was being served by the young couple who owned the place? They had that aura around them of being invested in the place.

The menu offered some bruschettas, some salads, some pastas, and a lot of pizza and calzones. I went with a Primavera, which in their world is scamorza, fior di latte, arugala, and grape tomatoes.

The pizza arrived quickly, and piping hot. It was a knife and fork meal, as it was a very thin crust pizza.

I liked the cheese choices, they turned out much more creamy and smooth than a typical mozarella pizza.

The crust was good. I'm a bigger fan of more crispness, less chew in my thin crust pizza. The amount of charring was lower than I prefer as well. But these are minor quibbles. It was a good crust overall.

The toppings were quality, a heap of fresh arugula and some nice sour-sweet grape tomatoes.

Not a place I will travel across town for, but then, there really isn't one I will do that for. But if I am in the neighbourhood and craving some thin crust pizza, I will definitely return. Next time, I will try one with tomato sauce and see how their sauce tastes.
