Anyone been to Dino's wood fired pizza?

5 of us went for lunch today , all of us were underwhelmed . The biggest problem for all of us was the quality of the ingredients , especially considering the price of the meal ( 2 pizzas , i pita, 2 salads = $66.00). The caesar salad contained ultra low quality baco-bits which stained the romaine with a ghastly pink tint, combined with the acrid dressing and phony flavored croutons were a chemical assault on the palate. Greek salad was sprinkled with a red "Seasoning" from a large shaker in the kitchen which along with the sliced olives helped offset any charm the tiny chopped vegetables and bland feta could muster. the pizza crusts were good not great with only a hint of smokey flavor from the impressive wood oven. the toppings on both were sparse and of poor quality , particularly the meat products ( The sausage in particular was visually off putting, texturally spongey and devoid of flavor)The spinach pita was the most successful dish by default ,because of its longer cooking time the presence of the wood fire was more obvious and the spinach gave it a fresh clean taste. There is a lot of good pizza available in the city so schlepping out to Ginos is not worth the trip.

Delux vs. Foxleys

i've been to Foxley many times and have always had very well conceived and prepared food. The wine list is much better than one would expect and is chosen with the cuisine in mind. Take a few minutes to compose your dinner as there is some redundancy in some of the dishes, but this is easily avoided. I always begin with one or more of the cevice/raw fish dishes which are without peer in the city and are good value . After that the rest is up to you ,the only disappointment that I have had is with the frogs legs which are frozen and too large for my liking.Foxley is a treasure, casual affordable and real.
