not wild about South Brooklyn Pizza (2nd St. near 7th Ave. in Park Slope)

I've been meaning to try the various new-ish pizza places in Park Slope (including Giuseppina's and Campo di Fiore) but circumstances brought me to South Brooklyn Pizza first.

I really WANTED to love it because they seem so invested in getting quality ingredients. But, I have to say, I'm not feelin' the love so far. The pizza is good but overpriced ($25 and up). They have very little variety in the pizza, and no salads or anything else.

The first time I went, the man said they would have salads soon. So the second time I went, I asked if they had salads, and another man said no. Then, while he was making our pie, he proceeded to complain LOUDLY to a friend in Italian (which I understand) about these Americans who want salads, who want wine, etc. why can't they just be happy with the pies? I thought that was pretty rude. He continued to talk (about various other topics) so loudly, on top of the music, that I could barely hear the companions at my table. There were also two dogs running around the place and under our table.... By the time we left, after I made it clear that I had understood what they said, the man blurted out "God Bless America!" Sorry, douchebag, that slogan does not make up for the earlier customer-bashing.

Overall, the high prices and bad atmosphere totally outweighed the quality of the pizza.
