Like No Other! – It's not the crust. It's not the sauce. It's not the toppings. It's not the seasonings. It's not the oven. It's not the atmoshpere. There's just something about a Fountain Pizza that is special. One of my favorite things to do is to ask them to 3/4s cook a pie (or two!) and then bring it home 60 miles away and give it a few more minutes in the oven and enjoy it as if we were sitting right there on New Scotland Avenue, as we did so many times for the last 25 years! Fountain Pizza -- it's the best!
Relax! Have a drink... – Even on a Tuesday afternoon, you may find yourself occupying the last available table at this busy restaurant/tavern. There is an unspoken guarantee of good food, good drinks, and excellent service. You will never feel out of place and you will never leave hungry. The pizza may quite possibly be what gained this place it's reputation; it is by far the best I have had. It is definitely worth stopping by this neighborhood hotspot... even if just to visit the waitstaff. Nothing will disappoint you about this place... I promise.
great pizza – The ambience is more bar than restaurant, but it's the best pizza I've had in the area.
Service tends to be quite casual, but adequate.
I'd rate the pizza a "10," but there's a lot more on the menu that I have never tried so I give the food a "9" overall.
