    Pizza seemed real greasy although the crust had a good taste. Kind of loud and bright in there. Our waitress was adorable and very good.

    We had a white pie (mushroom) and a red pie (meatball). Both were very good but a bit pricey. A better beer selection and 16 oz. pours would be nice. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back!

    Service wasn’t good at all. It was a big deal that we had a reservation for 2 they told us they weren’t sure what they could do walked around a empty dining room trying to figure out where to put two people with a reservation… was offered to bar but we didn’t make a reservation for the bar we made it for a table.. it was like it was a big inconvenience for two people… they did end up seating us at a table after they mad wit a big production… if a reservation for is such a big inconvenience take that option off of open table

    If you're looking for Italian cuisine with a new twist, then this place is for you! The pizzas, however, are pretty traditional wood fired Napolitano style which are outstanding.

    The place was adorable but good and service were not the best. The charcuterie was tiny and had only one type of meat. Caesar salad had NO cheese! Arancini balls had no flavor. Pizza was decent, a little bit soggy but overall good. Servers were all teenagers who wanted to take your plate before you were done. They were sweet though. Probably would not go back, Addeos Fire and Ice is far superior.

    Very casual brightly lit place good for pizza & drinks more so than regular restaurant dining (very limited app & dinner menu). Good pizza place but wish tables had salt, pepper & pizza toppings on table so you don’t need to ask waitress then wait to get.

    It was entirely too noisy. We had to shout to hear each other. We ordered a pasta dish and all we got was pasta and a sauce. There was no meat, bread or salad which made the cost very expensive. Will not go back there any time soon.

    Finally got to try Char and Lemon and WOW were we blown away! The food, the drinks, the vibe, the staff, all incredible! We had the slow braised meatballs, the charred octopus as appetizers, the spaghetti Limone, crispy chicken Milanese & the spice of life Pizza which was a margherita pie with jalapeños, sausage and Calabrian hot honey and they were all to die for! The drinks and desserts were also delicious! This place will most definitely be a favorite spot of ours. If you haven’t tried it yet, put it on your list!! Absolutely fabulous place!! In stars it’s off the charts!!
