Mystic Pizza

Why evaluate a place that has been reviewed like a million times? Because my friend, this is not a review... This is an evaluation of sincerity.

The surprise was that this restaurant, as overloaded as it was with photos from the movie that helped make it famous - Julia Roberts pics, various other movie and music posters, and videos playing in every corner - turned out to be quite low key. Our waitress was friendly and laid back. Whatever our request, she was ready and able to grant it. the food was great and Georgina described it as possibly the best American Style pizza she'd ever tasted. It was a Sunday, so parking was not a problem (we parked in the bank lot next door in a spot that declared we'd be towed if we weren't bank customers, but then, by definition, banks are never sincere.) We went in and accepted that there'd be at least a fifteen minute wait. Five minutes later we were seated. The service was fast and casual, and we had a great time.

It must be said that the town of Mystic has very likely changed a lot since the time of the movie, since it's pretty much Disneyland Main Street USA all over again, with every emphasis on shopping and how to extract dollars from visitors, but the pizza of this all blown-out-of-proportion town was reasonably priced and delicious.

Evaluation: Very sincere
