It was a Saturday night and three fine ladies joined me for some pre-game pie at the Little Five Points staple, Savage Pizza. We were headed to see my favorite local band Lloyds Rocksteady Review at the 5 Spot (http://www.myspace.com/lloydsrocksteadyrevue). The pie was good but the show turned out to be a flop (just a bunch of Marley covers, it was Marley’s B-Day, wasn’t really the band I had seen a few months earlier). Anyhow, here’s my review…
The restaurant is comic book themed. Walls covered with classic comic book heroes and villains. Action figures and all.
The pizza reflects the atmosphere. Creative pies with a variety of different sauce concoctions and toppings.
At Savage there is no pizza by the slice (After 4p.m.). Just hand tossed pies: small, medium and large. You can choose your own sauce and create your own pizza, or order from the many tasty selections already on the menu (http://savagepizza.com/locations/little-five-points/little-five-points-menu/menu-little-five-points).
Mallory and I split a small pie. They are 9”, 4 slices and enough for two. If you’re really hungry you could go for a medium. We chose the Bolognese from their list of specialty pies. It comes with the red wine marinara sauce, Italian sausage, sun-dried tomatoes, red onions, mushrooms, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Jenny and Bridget split a small pie with spinach, artichoke, red onions, olives and jalapeno. I think, I might be forgetting some stuff but for the most part I think that’s what they ordered.
The pies came out smokin’ hot. Perfectly round with consistent crust. Toppings proportioned nicely and well baked. Whoever tossed these pizzas knew what they were doin’! That red wine marinara is delich’! Me and Mal really dug our pizza. We scarfed that pie down. The mozzarella was tongue tingling tasty and the other ingredients like the sundried tomatoes and Italian sausage complemented nicely.
This wasn’t my first time eating Savage, and I can tell you I always leave satisfied. This time was no exception. The pizza was great!
Shout out to Jenny, Bridget and Mal. Nothing beats dinner with a group of sexy ladies and a few pitchers of cold beer!
