Had a quick dinner Friday evening at Intermezzo and was thoroughly impressed. Located just outside of the city on Central Blvd this small restaurant definitely has a lot of character. The interior reminds of a northern establishment with exposed brick walls, wood finishes, dimmed light and just an all around warm atmosphere.
I had ordered some of the garlic knots, which to be honest weren't anything special. Too much garlic on them, but I think that's just my personal preference. The pizza on the other hand, was incredible. Some of the best pizza I've had, ever. I had ordered just a simple, pepperoni & cheese pizza, but it was packed full of flavor. The sauce to cheese and topping ratio was perfect and the thin crust was crispy, but not over done.
The menu has a decent amount of authentic style Italian dishes and about a dozen pizza choices. Next time you're in the mood for pizza, or anything Italian, I'd check it out.
There are a couple things that I could see people getting turned away by, the first being the nonchalant attitude the staff seems to have. They are willing to help you, but the way they do it could be construed as being rude. The only other thing that could be a turn off is if you're stuck outside in the plastic covered front (inside is very small) and there are people smoking out there it's very unappealing.
