Ian's was busy but not sardine tight as the first visit. True to form, they continue to offer variation in their pizzas. Today's pizza to try was the gyro.
Ian's continues to offer pizzas with a great delectable crust, crispy exterior with a soft slightly chewy interior. The gyro toppings won't put Parthenon down a few blocks out of business but it is more than passable. My only grip is that it was too light and delicate. It needed to be loaded for a complete meal.
Ian's was busy even well after noon hour.
I asked for the most unusual and was pointed toward one of these. The guy behind the counter then took a slice and heated it for a few minutes in the oven.
Portabello, penne pasta, cheese, and basil ($3.50). It was salted just right with a crunchy crust on the edge, a chewy center, flavor bursting portabella, and texturally satisfying pasta.
I can understand the popularity of Ian's. Good pizza using local ingredients at a not unreasonable price. I recommend it to those who like pizza.
Restroom Rating: 7.0. Surprisingly clean given the number of customers.
