The Damage: Not much! Decently priced.
The Background: I don’t know why I keep forgetting to write about The Yard. Because you know, they make a good pizza.
The Gimmick: Pizza for four, served by the yard, with up to four toppings. So yes, one humongously large pizza that takes up pretty much the entire table. Personally, I think it could easily serve five. They also have pastas, but I’ve only ever had the pizza. I’ve also tried one of the starters, which is a fun assortment of little things to try like prociutto, different cheeses, hummous, etc.
The Service: Too busy for their own good. Looking everywhere but you. They do a brisk trade at lunchtime, so make sure you get your entire order in–you might even want to order two diet cokes at the same time like me–so that if you are hungry or thirsty later in your meal, you don’t need to worry about trying to get someone’s attention.
The Verdict: A very dependable place with good food, but spacey service.
