Had early (5:00) reservation on Valentines. When making the reservation they asked if we wanted a high or low table, we selected low. Even though there were at least 20 empty tables they still seated us at a high table, next to the kitchen, with the wait staff computer 2’ behind my chair so the servers kept bumping the back of my chair. Trash can right behind me as well. Calzone and original Margherita pizza looked good, first bites were good but soon discovered the bottom crusts of each dish were soggy and doughy. We left at least half of each item there; when we declined the server’s offer of a to go container she seemed unsurprised. I can’t imagine why this restaurant gets any positive reviews. I should have known better when it was so easy to get a last minute reservation for Valentines night. When we left at 5:45 there were still at least 20 empty tables.

Came for my moms 79th bday luncheon and we loved it. It wasn’t loud at all so we could talk with no problem ;) pizza is thin crust so wasn’t overly stuffed afterwards. Spaghetti meatballs was a bit too. Had cannoli’s for dessert...not as good as my moms homemade ones but still pretty good ;) mom said I was really nice and she was glad to find a new restaurant to go to from now on. Great friendly service, which made it even more awesome ;)

Food is delicious. Ordered the cheese platter, cheese bread, Margherita Neopolitan pizza, a malbec to drink, and a berry chocolate calzone that was given to the birthday person.

My only two downsides: the food and drinks kept coming at differnet times than the rest of the table. I personally do not like to eat until everyone has their food. Ex: one pizza arrived 5 min before the rest started coming.

The mojito tasted like it had a sour base to it. It definitely did not taste like an original mojito and the sour base was so overpowering, the person who ordered it only drank about half of it.

Big winners were definitely the Neopolitan pizza and the berry chocolate calzone.

Delivery wasn't well staged with appetizers and salads on top of each other and main course too soon thereafter. Cocktails were not made as ordered. Food was great but we felt pressured such that the experience was not good. We want to dine, not merely eat.

The food was amazing!! We had the Bacon and egg pizza and the double pepperoni and both were absolutely delicious!! The meat board was also great. Definitely a great place to eat. The only thing that kept it from a 5 star was the wait time. It took almost a hour to get our pizza and it definitely was not overly busy. Now, I may be too picky on this as I do not know what exactly goes into making this amazing pizza, it may take that long, but it seemed excessive. Regardless, I can’t wait to take my wife (my son and I visited). I cannot recommended it enough... just make sure you map out a 1 1/2 hour to 2 hour visit.

When we got there on Saturday around 12:45PM, it looked a little empty, but, people kept coming in. So, by the time we left there, there were number of people eating. The food was really good. I really enjoyed their food. the server was very attentive.

I would but I would warn them that the wait staff is very slow and everyone seemed new. It was Valentines Day but not crowded. Took an hour to get drinks and appetizer. Waitress had trouble with orders and the 5 other tables that were in our area all seemed to have the same issue. When our main course came out, my husbands came first and we waited 20 minutes before the other two entree’s came out. It was a good thing he ordered just a salad-didn’t have to worry about it getting cold.

Immediate seating was available, ordered the homemade meatballs for an app, they were awesome. Had the Ministrone soup, Tomatoes Basil soup, build your own pizzas, truffle calzone and finished with a Nutella and berries calzone everything was delicious, tomatoe soup should have been hotter, but tasted great. Hope this place makes it, great food, friendly staff, all at a fair price.

Service was terrible. Took over 10 minutes before the hostess that sat us realized that we hadn't been talked to by any server. Once our server came and took our drink and meal order, it took 15-20 minutes for the hostess to bring us our drinks. Food arrived shortly afterwards. We got a calzone and the mac and 3 cheese to share. Calzone was good. The mac and cheese was okay, but the cheese sauce broke apart and was very oily and somewhat gritty.

Willing to give them a second chance as I had heard great reviews about them in the past, but very disappointed with our first visit.

I ordered a pizza with salami and mushroom. It was spicy and delicious. My husband ordered spaghetti and meatballs. As an Italian whose mother was an phenomenal cook, he is very critical of restaurant Italian food. Well, he loved it. The sauce was tangy and savory. The meatballs were tender and delicious. Most places serve rubbery meatballs, which are always a disappointment.
We also had a wonderful tangerine hazy IPA. I loved it, as it only hinted at the tangerine....perfect!
Service was very accommodating, friendly, and informative.
The restaurant was not crowded. I was surprised as it was a Saturday night.
I love this place! I will definitely be back.

Super great food, drink, staff and ambiance! Modern restaurant with old world Italian foods cooked to perfection in a wood fired oven. The Nutella Calzone is to die for, a perfect blend of fresh berries and Nutella baked into a calzone, AMAZING!

Food and service were good but you can tell it was a new restaurant and there were kinks that needed to be worked out. We will go back for dinner in a few months to see how they have improved.

Great potential, but a bit rough right now. The food promises to be really good, once their kitchen to table process improves. The owner accepted responsibility and seemed thankful for practical suggestions. I will absolutely give MidiCi another chance. I ❤️ wood fired pizza!

It’s new, it’s close and it’s amazing. The serves are upbeat (especially Alyssa), they know the menu and the kitchen staff are creative. Love the food, love the vibe and know it’s certainly at the top of the favorite list.

This place has great potential! The service and food need some serious upgrades. I know the proprietors are new to the restaurant biz, so hiring a GM would be a great start to meet the potential this location has
