Apparently I'm waffling here... (Mmm, waffles). Because on the topic of Pitch I've now gone from 4-stars to 3-stars and now back to 4-stars. Try not to get whiplash here...

Our most recent visit included pizza (obviously) and some of the lighter side options.

Ironically when I polled people on my Facebook page about what to order I got a ton of recommendations for Pitch's vegetable-heavy dishes... also the meatballs.

Having enjoyed the Arugula Salad a couple times previously, we branched out a bit and followed the recommendation for Coal Fired (of course) Long Stem Artichokes. And while the menu describes these as coming with 'lemon dipping sauce' it was really so much more. Yes the sauce was amazing, yes the artie's were nicely charred, but they arrived with a bed of lettuce and light dressing with tomatoes. Great dish for sharing.

I was still coming off of my summer goat cheese peppadew kick, so those were on order next. These were pretty much exactly as described, but I was disappointed that the salad overshadowed the dainty poppers, which gave the appearance of a sidecar rather than the main event. Still, delicious. Can't really complain too much about that.

Pizzas were pretty spot on also. We had the Marsala: figs, goat cheese, pears, arugula, truffle oil, mozzarella and the crowd-pleaser Mia (Willy's Favorite): tomato sauce, fennel sausage, pepperoni, fresh mozzarella.

None of my former qualms surfaced... plus it was $30 bottle and pie night, so who's complaining now?! I'm not really a big wine drinker, probably due to lack of education, but I do know that the Pitch Black red blend is really right in my wheelhouse.

And with so many more tantalizing items that I still haven't tried, I predict another trip back in the near future. Have things changed or is Pitch just growing on me?
