casa di pizza (Buffalo)

Went to Casa di Pizza (aka JJ's) in Buffalo. Here's what we thought: We had a half-mushroom, half-meatball pizza, BBQ wings, and a pitcher of birch beer. The pizza was attractively served on a stainless cake stand and had a very appetizing homemade look. Unfortunately, the meatballs produced some strange zings in my mouth, which is usually a sign of rancidity. Maybe an unusual spice was to blame, but we'll get our pizza meatball-less next time. The mushrooms were fresh, not the usual canned type. The pizza was toothsome with a heavy topping of real, drippy mozzarella. We had a thin-crust pie, which Lucy says was like eating pizza on crackers. (She LOVES pizza on crackers). The wings were ok, though i thought they were too sweet and would have preferred the butter-&-hot-sauce kind. (Everyone else thought they were great). The birch beer was nice & wet -- like root beer without the zip. We enjoyed the rowdy sports bar atmosphere on the final night of the NBA finals and bonded immediately with our super-friendly waitress, Kelly, who sat down at our table, discussed our order with us, and was extremely tolerant of our slow-ordering ways. She is the best waitress in the universe!!! (Sorry about the meatball thing, K, but we are chowhounds and must speak the truth!). The extensive menu was a joy to wallow in and the red light that flashed when pizzas are ready was a nice touch. Casa di Pizza/JJ's rocks!!
