Brought to you by the same fellow who reinvented bread in Portland, this Old World-style pizzeria uses a centrally located wood fire to toast these thin crust pies to perfection. With just a single size and only 7 combinations, the pizzas arrive within minutes, each suitable for one hungry person with leftovers, or two people on a date. The wait-staff at Ken's Artisan Pizza is friendly and efficient, though its usually quite full on weekends due to its looming popularity. There are plenty of tables on the street with the long bar serving a carefully selected wine and beer list.
Smoky wood-fired pizzas and delicious homemade ice creams beckon children of all ages to this quaint eatery with an intriguing name. Don't expect an explanation for it though, as food is the only thing in focus here. The interiors invoke a mild sense of nostalgia, though it's probably not a deliberate effort. Basic interiors, wooden tables, plastic chairs and the wood-fired oven roaring away give a very comforting vibe to the place. Choose from a selection of delectable pizza pies with a selection of Italian as well as American toppings. The salad selection proves to be a good complement to the pizzas. Ice creams are a specialty and come in some delightful flavors from salted caramel to huckleberry. Almost all ingredients used in Lovely's Fifty Fifty are locally sourced with the addition of being organic when possible. Even the ice creams are made using organic eggs and cream. There's a perennial bustle to the place thanks to the number of families coming in with kids. How can you blame them with a menu like that?
The serpentine queues outside this little pizzeria is a fair enough indication of it's popularity in the city. However, Apizza Scholls' fame goes far beyond Portland. This no non-sense pizzeria is frequently listed amongst the country's top pizza places and is a must-visit fixture when in the city. The restaurant's kitchen headed by owner Brian Spangler delights with his single-minded focus of crafting some of the best pizza pies. Choose from a delectable selection of house pies featuring classics like the Apizza Margherita as well as some delights like the Bacon Bianca and Tartufo Bianco. The selection has something for most tastes, and if you're thinking up something not on the menu, you can also 'Build your own Pie'.
