I was pretty skeptical when I saw the pizza week entry- the consent fries. Pickles and gravy? Not a good combo. But I still decided to give it a try. It blew my mind. The gravy and cheese melted in my mouth while the fries and pickles added to the chewiness and contrasting flavor. It is the strangest yet most unique pizza I've ever had. My mouth is watering right now as I write the review and thinking about the pizza. I would definitely buy it again.
It has been years since we had Diana's pizza and we thought it best to give it a try again. Let's just say we were not disappointed! The pizza crust was delicious, the toppings bountiful and fresh. We will definitely be ordering again!
My family & I were excited about trying four different Pizzas. We got to Diana's at about 4:30pm. We placed our order at the takeout and were told it would be about 30 minutes. We were seated in the dining room to wait. After 40 minutes I checked to see how things were going and was told it would be ready soon, whereupon I went back and sat with my family in the dining room. At 50 minutes we all went to the take out counter to check again. At 55 minutes we finally got our pizzas. It also was very strange when we first got there we did actually want to eat in the dining room rather than the takeout. We were told that there wouldn't be a server for a half hour, or 5pm. Thus the reason we ordered it to go. Seems strange that a place that opens at 4 doesn't have a server until 5. I know these are handmade and very unique, but almost an hour was really long. That being said, the pizzas were fantastic. The medium crusts we all had was super good. The cheese on mine was creamy and delicious. We really liked our pizzas, but we're disappointed with the length of time before we had them in hand. They are pricey, I understand that, but I'm just not sure it takes 55 minutes to make.
I've heard about Dianna's "Award Winning Pizzas" on a local radio station and was very interested with the interview that they hosted with the owner, Dianna. Yesterday, I happened to be in the right part of town at the right time to drop in and place an order for Take Out. There was a scant menu on the chalk board, but I soon found a paper menu and explored it. I was asked what I wanted to order. I couldn't really decide as there were so many interesting choices. I asked for a recommendation. I was told "It depends what you like, there's the menu.", to which I responded " I like pretty much anything, what would you recommend for someone's first time here that would make me want to keep coming back." I literally live across the city from this restaurant, but if the food and service are good, I usually make the effort to return. This is where the little bit of service I had received so far totally disappeared. I was given a blank look, then I was ignored for 10 minutes, left standing and waiting. I thought about leaving and going over to Pizza Gusto on the other block, but was determined to try this pizza. I chose a random pizza from the menu, and waited. My order was finally taken, and I was told 20 minutes. I waited in the car due to the current pandemic situation, and after 25 minutes went in. I was told it would be a little longer...not a problem. After 10 more minutes, my pie was ready, and I left for for home. On the way home, I picked up my wife from work. She said that the pizza smelled good, to which I replied " I hope it is, $50 and horrible service...the pizza better be good. The pizza was incredible, but based on the lack of service, at the end of it all I don't know why I would want to make an effort to go there, even if I lived across the street. UPDATE November 20 After the owner Diana, reached out and contacted me with her concerns about my experience at her restaurant, I soon realized that this particular experience was probably more of an anomaly than the norm. Her determination to make right this situation by addressing it with her staff and offering me a sincere apology from their and her behalf have convinced me of this. The fact the the food was through the roof excellent, and her recommendations on a few of her favourites have convinced me to edit my review and bump it up from 2 to 4 stars. I will be re-visiting this restaurant and hopefully not be disappointed...perhaps the next review will be a 5?
I ordered from here for the first time tonight and I am very disappointed. The yam fries were burned, the $16 "family size salad" is enough for MAYBE 3 people and the house vinaigrette is so cold that the oil is solid and doesn't mix. If I'm going to spend $30 on fries, salad and a 2L I won't be doing it here again!
