Fodor's Review

Wood-fired, thin-crust pizza from organic flour is the specialty here, but this is no ordinary pizza joint. Besides the usual pies, West First offers more creative options such as potato pizza (with a thin topping of new potatoes and rosemary rather than tomato sauce) and roasted-salmon pizza. It also has Italian dishes like eggplant parmigiana and house-made fennel sausage in a marinara sauce. The main dining room is a large rectangle, anchored at the far end by the open

oven blazing away. Dominating one side of the room are two large, striking paintings, portraits inspired by the owner's grandparents. The ceiling is high in the industrial restaurant style with duct work showing. There is also a small dining area in a covered patio outside, and a second-level loft. Prices are surprisingly low. The same owners opearate Flat Rock Village Bakery in nearby Flat Rock.
