            Critics Closing Thoughts

            The only bad thing I can ever think of when it comes to Fireside Pizza Cafe is that it took me too long to visit. The food… Holy crap…. The food.

            Obviously, the wood fired pizza is my all time favorite. I need an entire one for myself anytime I go to Fireside in Palm Harbor, but everything else I’ve eaten there is incredible too.

            The homemade sauce and meatballs are ridiculous and if you love garlic as much as I do, the garlic parm wings and knots are complete insanity.
