Update from 12/20/2013
My Family and I stopped by the other night for some pizza and dessert before seeing A Christmas Carol just down the street at the Downtown Theatre. The dinner experience was really nice. The chef was interactive with the tables. He made recommendations for desserts which he personally brought to the table. We all sampled the creations and all thought they were DELICIOUS! He was definitely on his game that night. While the first experience left me feeling as though there was much unrealized potential, this visit surpassed my expectations.

Our ventures out today took us to Wolfies Pizzamia restaurant on North Orange Ave. in Orlando. While there was just one other couple dining there, the food was really quite good. The restaurant is under the same ownership as The White Wolf Cafe which is only a half a block away. While I have never eaten at the Cafe it has been there since 1991 and if the crowd is an indicator they have a good thing going there.
Back to the Pizza. The concept is that everything is as local, fresh, and organic as possible. They make their own dough, sausage, pasta, and most cheeses right there. Our waitress who was very nice said she got to watch them make some cheese the other day and thought the process was pretty awesome.
We had the Meatball App to start out, which was very good. We followed that up with the Specialty Pizze’ the Burano Mozz which is topped with prosciutto, Rochet salad, and goat cheese. The crust of the pizza was perfect and the toppings really gave it all a great flavor.
The decor has kind of an old world feel to it with music playing across the audio system from the 60’s to today. Over all it’s another good local restaurant to make your way to that’s off the beaten path.
