Greg H., who reviewed the new spot on July 14, wrote, "MidiCi has the most delicious, authentic Neapolitan pizza that you will find. Meatballs are great, the salads are wonderful, there's a great variety of pasta and then of course, the amazing Nutella calzone. The restaurant is spacious and beautiful, and the centerpiece decoration are the two gold-tiled wood-burning ovens in which the pizza is cooked."
