Comments: A nice restaurant in the heart of Old Town Pasadena right next to the Metro station. They make brick oven pizzas, and they are amazing! Recommend the following three pizzas: the avocado festival (with added garlic), the fallen angel (with spinach and egg), and the shattuck ave (with broccoli). Of course the peperoni and sausage are great too. The vegetarian and vegan pizza are the same besides the cheese, most agreed that the vegan pizza is the best one. The pizza combinations are unique, the crust and sauce are great!
