Fodor's Review

Wood-fired thin-crust pizza made from organic flour is the specialty here, and besides the more usual options, West First also serves unusual pies such as lamb, roasted salmon, and barbecue chicken. The main dining room, a large rectangle, is anchored at one end by the open oven blazing away, and on one side are two large, striking paintings of the owner's grandparents. There is also a dining area in a covered patio outside, and a second-level loft. No reservations are taken, and there's often a wait.
