Good dough in the pizza, a pleasant medium bodied chewy consistency, solid flavour. The crust however, is a little too floppy, the crispness super thin at the base, and barely detectable, despite the nice scorching. I would have preferred a more substantial crispy base beneath the hewy main body. But the dimensions are about right for a near optimal chewy/crispy ratio if they get the crust perfected.

Had a white pizza with ricotta, mozzarella and wild mushrooms (I think Jfores recommended this). Mozzarella is ok, but as described before, certainly nothing like the real deal from Campania. Ricotta is better, richer, fuller body. Very good woodsy flavour from the wild mushrooms. Appreciated the olive oil at the table for on the spot drizzling.
