Their pizza is killer. Everything else on the menu is equally as delicious - we sometimes order from the antipasti menu without even getting pizza!

Drinks & Nightlife
The area's first combined bottle shop and brewery, Beer Study/ Starpoint Brewing is one of our favorite spots in the Triangle. The taplist is extensive and the retail bottle selection is the best in the area. The owner will drive to locations that don't distribute to get beer for the shop. Take a peek at the production space for the brewery to the left of the bar, and check out the old school arcade, the "Study Hall" in the back. Dog friendly!
