Having my own wood burning pizza oven at my house I do like to go to other restaurants to try out new ways to make pizza. This place is over priced, has a terrible atmosphere, and bad crust.\r

Incredible pizza. The wait is a pain during the evening hours, but its worth the wait. They have a great happy hour too where the pizza is cheap and fast. I really love this place.

After having the best pizza in New York, I tried Serious Pie for the first time a few weeks ago and I'm sold! I've tried the truffle mushroom and yukon potato pizza, but the best by far is the traditional Margherita Pizza (buffalo

Pros: only the best pizza I've ever had!!!, good wine, good servic

Cons: a little pricy, long wait (but well worth it)

I would allow myself to support this place, even with their inflated prices on pizza, if they servied dessert pie too.

The wait is worth it, and I love that you don't need reservations. It is casual, but the food is yummy! The apps can be a tad on the small side, so kinda junk for sharing beyond 2 people, but that is okay because you want to leave room

If you can stand the long wait during dinner time, Serious Pie is worth it. You can always stop by next door at Tom Douglas' other restaurant, The Dahlia Lounge, for a drink while you wait. Their pizza might be a little more extravagant than your average slice, but it's worth the price and the wait. Their cherry bomb peppers, sweet fennel sausage pizza is delicious. It's light and crispy with a lot of flavor. Everything I've tried there has been great. It's always one of the restaurants I recommend to friends

This pizza puts all others to shame! Flavors matched and balanced so well in the choice of toppings and just enough cheese to compliment but not overwhelm the pie. Be ready to wait for a seat but it just builds the anticipation of the great meal that awaits you.

Coming from NY its hard to find good pizza here.

Finally a place that doesn't use an electric conveyor belt oven...

They use all of the right ingredients and take care in putting the right tastes together on each of their pies.

Well worth the wait if there is a line.

From everything I'd heard about Serious Pie, I expected nothing less than great from this buzzing pizza joint. Yet after just one bite of my house special--buffalo ricotta, rosemary, porcini, and parmesan--pizza, I was an instant convert.

A friend made me a salmon dish featured in Tom Douglas' cook book and it was absolutely incredible. I then saw Tom on the Food Network show Iron Chef. I was intrigued and thought that his food looked amazing. I thought I would try out one

Pros: not ordinary boring pizza

Cons: parking is tough and it can get crowded ....but worth the wait!

friendly and prompt service though i'm just not a fan of the communal tables. we sat next to a loud talker which was distracting and made it hard to have our own conversation. when you are paying16$ for an individual pizza, the bill

Chef Tom Douglas serves oblong pies at tall wood tables in this cozy, dark pizzeria. Choose from sophisticated toppings --- sweet fennel sausage and roasted peppers, or such creative pairings as Penn Cove clams with house-made pancetta ---…
