This excellent "hole in the wall restaurant" is family friendly and serves Excellent Sour Dough Pizza---flat and thin. A wide variety of toppings. Reasonably priced. DS

Remarkable sourdough crust pizza with inventive toppings. At its best it's almost world class at its worst (sometimes the pizza isn't as good as other times) it's very good. Try BBQ chicken pizza

This is a small restaurant but certainly not small in flavor. The pizza dough is a sourdough that is crispy and delicious There are many different choices for toppings and quite a variety of different and organic salads. A must visit!!

Got a warm greeting entering this place which is always dependably good. This place couldn't be more accommodating. You can order large pizzas with different halves as well as small and they offer a variety of dough and the salads are a shareable size. Our server offered me tastes of the wine when I wasn't sure what I wanted and... More

OK, you may have to wait out in the street for a table to free up. Or huddle in the "vestibule" with your fellow Americans. But the pies are absolutely worth it - hot, wood fired, crispy, fresh ingredients - and the family portion salad (all locally grown greens) is the right size for two herbivores with normal appetites. Plus... More

We were spoiled by the spacious Baba Louie's in Pittsfield (no longer open). This one, the original, has a whole different feel. You wait in line and sit cheek-by-jowl with other diners, families with kids in strollers, etc. The wait staff goes flying by at a hectic pace. But the soups, salads and pizzas remain really good. The salads have... More

I went to Baba Louie's last night with my husband and friends. We had a bit of a wait, but it was a Saturday night at around 7PM. When we were seated, we ordered a family size salad which was very tasty and too big for four people. The Riccardo's Pizza Famosa was also delicious and a large was enough... More

Very crowded, very noisy, live music and great food. You can't go wrong in stopping at this seemingly local hangout for a different dining experience. We had a great time.
