Some buddies and I went to Pete's Apizza Monday after work to check it out. The verdict: it's decent. Of course, it was only the first day, so maybe some of the kinks haven't been worked out.
The place was very busy, but didn't have as much of a restaurant atmosphere as I thought it would have - it's not very large and seems more lunch-ish than dinner-ish. There are maybe 10 tables and a long counter where you order.
The ordering is a little strange, you order either slices or whole pies at one register, then go to another to pay. Then they give you a number and you sit and wait. The slices are right in front of you when you order, but you don't get them for a few minutes - I guess they heat them up. It was a little confusing at first, and one of our party didn't get his slice for 10 minutes or so - some kind of mixup.
As for the important part, the pizza was pretty good. Two of us got white clam slices, apparently a New Haven specialty: they were good, if a little dry - that also might be an effect of buying single slices, which may not be the freshest. The sausage and mushroom slice was good, and my buddy bought a whole pie, which he liked. The slices are about $3, whole pies about $20.
They don't have beer or wine yet and folks at the register said it may be about a month. They'll have four local beers on tap, some Italian beer in bottles, and an Italian red and white wine. They also have very good gelato, but it's pricey - $4.50 for a small cup, $5.95 for a bigger one.
Most of us agreed that Alberto's, Radius, and Red Rocks are better places. Then again, buying a slice or two right off the Metro is handy. I'll go back in a little while to give it a follow-up.
And randomly, Councilman Jim Graham was there.
