Pizzanati: Lucy Blue

We've driven by Lucy Blue plenty of times when we've been near downtown, but it finally took the purchase of a Groupon to get us to stop in.  There are a couple of locations, and we went to the one on Main Street. The Groupon we purchased was for dinner for two with one appetizer, one pizza or two sandwiches, and two beverages ($15.00 for a $27.95 value). Overall, we liked the aesthetic of the space - there's a large prominent concrete bar that spans most of the space, and it feels casual with a hint of Italian style.

We ordered our drinks, which are just served in red, plastic cups. For our appetizer, we ordered the Garlic Knots [$5.95], which had fairly good flavor - crunchy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside.

For the pizza, we ordered half Mushroom [$18.00] (olive oil, garlic, mushrooms, mozzarella, goat cheese, sprinkled with fresh parsley) and half Blanco Quatro Fromaggia [$18.00] (olive oil, garlic, mozzarella, provolone, parmesan and feta cheese) - it wasn't a problem at all to order half-and-half. I found myself wanting some tomato sauce on the pizza (since neither of these specialty pizzas include any), and the server noticed that I was using the sauce from the garlic knots, so he happily offered to bring me out a side of sauce.

We found that they definitely do not skimp on toppings. The pizza was very flavorful and there was definitely plentiful cheese.

Verdict: I think next time I definitely need to try a pizza with marinara sauce to see how that compares, but this is definitely a solid choice. Francisco said he would rate them an 8 - they were very good. The price is on par with other pizza places, and the pizza tastes fresh and we definitely appreciate the abundance of toppings!
