We went to Marra’s tonight because the mussels are so good and we like the pizza too.  We came here a few months ago and the waitresses still remembered us.  We got a Shirley Temple.
These are the best mussels in the whole city especially when you dip them and the bread in the garlic sauce.
4.0 slices
The pizza is very good. The crust is chewy and crunchy and it had the perfect amount of cheese and sauce. The staff is really nice. I give it 4 slices!

We used to come when they first opened but they didn’t have drinks we liked so we stopped coming.  But now we like Roy Rogers and Shirley Temples so we came back.  We are sitting at an outside table and we ordered meatballs and a margherita pizza – how wonderful dinner!!  The meatballs are good and the bread with the meatballs was really really good.
The waiter, David,  just brought us out 4 extra cherries for our drink and we didn’t even ask him.  Yay!  The waiter is really nice.
The pizza sauce is like tomatoey so it tastes more like fresh tomatoes. The pizza is made an old fashioned oven where me and Carl looked at the fire through the window. For dessert we had raspberry and line sorbet and it was excellent!
4.0 slices The nomad pizza is actually really good. I give it all 4 stars!

We came here because we heard from Uncle Larry that it was voted one of the best places in the country.  I told the waitress that they can put the sauce on the top and cheese on the bottom and I got mushrooms on it too.  We also ordered mussels and Roy Rogers to drink.  The mussels are almost as good as Marras which is right there (pointing across the street).  Some mussels are orange and my favorite part is the stringy part.
4.0 slices I give this pizza 4 slices even thoigh the crust was a little burnt.
I like the way they have a garage door in the seating area and you can see good. Its a really big window.
