Much ado about Nothing: Una Pizza Napolitana

My wife and I shared a Margherita there on Thursday at five o'clock. First, I was surprised at the $21 price. Then I was amazed when we were told that one pie really would only be enough for one person. Disregarding that info we only ordered one pie. Next, I was surprised they could only cook no more than two pies at one time. With only three tables filled it took almost twenty minutes to get our pie. I can only imagine the wait when the place fills up. As for the pie itself, I liked the crust, the cheese and the fresh basil. What there was of tomato "sauce" was bland. I think my biggest surprise was the absolutely terrible wine we were served. We each ordered a different $9 glass of thin, bad wine. I was really disappointed in the overall experience.

All in all, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. Comments?
