Better for a group of 6: Tonda or Keste?

My brother's coming into town and he's meeting a lot of my friends for the first time. Between Tonda and Keste, what's the better space for a group of 6? I know the pizza at either will be stellar, so I'm actually more curious about wait times (Friday night), noise levels, etc.

  1. Keste is really small and barely has table for 6. Plus the wait till be ridiculous. Sad though cause I think their pies are one of the best in the city..

    1. I thought Tonda was awful. I'd easily take Co. over that place. Why not take them to Luzzo's, or hop on the 2/3 to Franny's in Park Slope?

        I thought Tonda had potential but didn't execute well. The dough had good taste but lacked any kind of char or flavor from the oven.

          Agree -- Tonda is NOT turning out stellar pies.
