Brick Pizzaria Napoletana - New Bedford
Well, our long awaited dining adventure to Brick came to fruition this weekend. First off, I have to say, I love New Bedford. The dining options are great and the bars are so fun. Brick offered a fun start to a wonderful night (ended the night at Slainte, a fun Irish pub). The dining room sy Brick is a typical brightly lit pizza place. The menu is creative and the wine list, affordable. Our server was friendly and attentive. We ordered the Caprese with Proscuitto on one half for my meat eating boyfriend and we also ordered the Puntanesca pizza. For wine we chose a Montepulciano (22.00). Pizzas fire up quick here. Service is super fast. Had high expectations based on Yelp reviews. Regretfully, I wasn't blown away. I didn't feel the pies possessed any real flavor if that makes sense. Whilst the server was super nice, we felt rushed to finish off our bottle of wine even though there were tables empty. We enjoyed our night overall but was not wowed by the pizza compared to other places we enjoy.
It's wood fired Neapolitan Pizza. I've had it once and it was superb that single sampling. It was everything I hoped Pizza Barbone to be; sharable, reasonable, delicious, and authentic. Barbone's (Hyannis) only fills the authentic and delicious criteria, but is very small and severely overpriced
