    I was really disappointed with the review of Pizzaiolo. It appeared that none of the guests, including the architect, Robert West, who knows anything about food. Comparing pizza crust to naan bread? Not knowing what broiled peaches were? Surely, you need to find some competent reviewers to give the restaurant another shot.
