I went to Serious Pie the other day for the first time and i have to say, i was not impressed. I'm a fan of Tom Douglass's other restaurants, but I'll pass on Serious Pie any day and head out to Tutta Bella or Via Tribunalli instead. Here's why:
For a starter, I ordered the beet salad - which was incredibly boring. basically it was yellow and red beets with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top and a little bit of mint. I didn't think the mint really did anything for the salad and I would have liked to have a little more salt or balsalmic vinegar. It was just not that interesting.
For dinner, I ordered the buffalo mozzarella pie for my entrée. First off, it was burnt. Second, the tomato sauce tasted like it came from a can. Third off, the mozzarella didn't taste like buffalo mozzarella. Again, kind of boring. However, my mom ordered the cherry bomb pizza which was the best thing about the night.
I was hoping that they could redeem themselves a bit with dessert because they had cannoli on the menu and I absolutely LOVE canolli. But, i was pretty disappointed to discover that the canolli was actually 3 baby canollis, in a cinnamon type shell on a bed of pistachios with a maple chocolate syrup surrounding it. As a lover of cannoli, i was so sad to see a classic Italian dessert altered like this, without any mention on the menu.
So basically, all in all, i wont be going there again and i was really embarrassed that i suggested we check it out.
