Has anybody been yet ? My friend is in the mood for a really good thin crust pizza and we were considering giving this a try.

    I've been....we had the ricotta/prosciutto/arugala pizza. Not thin thin crust. Small pie for 12 bucks. We got a bunch of pre meal bites (olives for $2, gorganzola for $3ish, and proscsiutto and salami for $5.00 a piece). I had the spaghetti with meatballs. Spaghetti and sauce for $10.00 good. $6.00 meatballs...not so much. Dense and heavy and weird sausage taste to them. We had 2 drinks and 2 sodas and before tax and tip the meal was $73.00. $30.00 of which was drinks and meatballs.

      I've been as well, and enjoyed it thoroughly. To quote myself: "We got a selection of small plates, of which the highlights were the rosemary onion and an eggplant salsa type thing. The funghi pizza was fantastic--light, chewy crust, great flavor. The carbonara and meatball panini were also delicious. And great pistachio gelato. A really nice new place."

      Not really thin crust, as eLizard says.

        The best truly thin crust pizza I've had in the area was from Carmine in Squantum in Quincy (699 Huckins Ave, 617-479-4404 and check on their limited hours).

        Take out, except for a few seats, unfortunately, but an alfresco picnic on Wollaston Beach would allow you to try it soon after it left the oven.

        If you like thin crust pizza and are in the area, you might want to check it out.
