We thought about opening today, but for the safety of our employees we thought the better of it. Wind gust of 50 mph and icy road conditions would have made it very hazardous to do deliveries as well.
We get great reviews and we get some not so great reviews.
On March 1st, 2016 we got a negative review from a customer who regularly buys our Chicken Marsala slices, he loves them, I love them.
However he left us a “1 star” review because it wasn’t ready when we told him it was going to ready. Here’s his original review.
What Gino doesn’t understand is that what makes our Chicken Marsala slice is the process! It’s not slapping some already made sauce on the chicken, and then throwing it on the pizza.
It’s takes 2 people to complete the process, our chef cooks up the the secret sauce in the back and carefully adds in the chicken to where it’s just right, then it goes to one of pizza (super)man, who by the way, also takes all the orders and front counter duties during the early part of the day.
What I trying to convey is that that are a lot of moving parts involved, and it not an exact science.
IT TAKES TIME!
Gino says my pizza (super)man told him it would be another 30-40 minutes. He disputes that, and I agree with my pizza man, why?
Here’s 2 videos of when Gino came in, and when the pizza was almost finished being prepared. At the point that the pizza man is finishing putting on the ritz, err, I mean cheese, there are about 5 minutes left for the finished product.
So in about 15 minutes, his pizza would have been ready!
So when seeing this evidence, from a regular customer, who loves our product give us a bad review, he gets pissed when I tell my guys not to serve him.
If I hated a place sooooo much to give it a “1 star” I certainly wouldn’t go back 3 DAYS LATER!. But Gino did!
And he’s pissed. Sorry but if we’re 1 star to you, then you shouldn’t eat here. We don’t
deserve want your business.
On Tuesday March 1st, I was away in South America dealing with family issues when I discovered the new review, I then immediately called the pizzeria, investigated the issue, watched the video, and and started to respond, but unfortunately, that Yelp reply was erased by the shoddy wifi I was using, so I waited to reply until I returned.
No hard feelings, sorry if it hurts, it hurts me too!
You may have heard of Casey Neistat, he’s a popular vlogger (video blogger) on Youtube. Anyway this weekend he shot an epic snowboarding short film in NYC that you’ve got to see!
That’s right, you read it right. Cheese has gotten a bad rap for a long time because it has been thought to increase coronary heart disease, however a new study suggest that may not be the case.
The French Paradox, where the French consume a large amount of cheese, red wine, and baguettes yet have low rates of coronary heart disease may have lead to the study performed by a Danish firm and reported in a small agriculture publication.
The findings of the study suggest that milk and cheese may alter the bacteria in the gut to decrease production of TMAO, a metabolite produced when the body metabolizes choline, which is found in many animal-derived foods, especially red meat.
The Time article links to research that suggest that lower levels of TMAO seem to be a good thing; other research has shown that TMAO may help transport cholesterol to the arteries and predicts mortality rates.
Having read The Coconut Oil Miracle sometime ago, I was aware of the bad rap that saturated fats have received, and some of the conspiracy theories as to why, so I was not surprised when I read this.
What does this all mean?
Don’t worry too much about your cheese intake!
So fire away, and order more pizza, preferably from us 🙂
P.S. If you’re looking for a nice Cabernet Sauvignon to go with, may I suggest the
Although we have been delivering to some of the areas added, it’s now been enabled for Online Ordering through Seamless and Grubhub. We have a delivery person which will facilitate getting orders on a timely fashion.
Please bare with us as we’re growing and are experiencing some growing pains. Here is a map of our new delivery zones. The minimum prices are higher in the outer zones with a small delivery fee. We welcome your feedback.
Here are our new pizza boxes. Don’t they look better than the plain generic, white and red lettering boxes that are usually the norm?
OK, so we’re trying to get our name out there. And this is a start. Every little bit helps.
But what really counts is what’s inside the box. We truly hope you enjoy every pie you get, but if for some reason you don’t, please let us know!
