Deep dish and pasta to die for..

Deep disk pizza and pasta that is out of this world. Restaurant is small and quaint so come early for best seats. Service is mature and well planned, but watch for the lineups they can be very lengthy after five PM. (5:00 PM)

I went with a friend to this lovely little place. Be warned, you need to get there early to avoid the lineups. We were there before the restaurant opened and were still about sixth in line. Anyway, we ordered a pizza and were delighted with our dinner. We were both bowled over by the amount of cheese in the pizza.... More

My spouse and I order food from here most weekends. We always order for takeout; however I have eaten in a few times and the service has been good. Service to call for takeout is always quick and courteous - be prepared to potentially reach a busy signal or be asked to hold for a bit if calling at a... More

I always get the baked Rigatoni. It is always hot and fresh. The sauce is loaded with mushrooms and topped with loads of cheese and then bake in the oven. My daughter gets the same thing but with no mushrooms. My husband loves their spaghetti. The sizes of the portions are ample so we usually only get a small. I... More

Our meal was ordered for take-out. It was a big order and everyone wanted something different. To bad they don`t have a kids meal. Everything was what we ordered. Came delivered hot by husband. Seemed pricey. For take-out

We called ahead to order the stuffed pizza because they state it takes 30 minutes to prepare. Added pepperoni, sausage, and onion and it was delicious! I found it through Foodnetworks You Gotta Eat Here and it did not disappoint.

We were there on a Tuesday evening and the place was pretty full. We waited for about 10 minutes for a table but in the meantime ordered a deep dish pizza so that it would be ready sooner. It was awesome. The large is very filling. It fed the 3 of us and we took 1/2 of it home. It... More

This place is always bursting at the seams so go more so at an off peak time so you don't have to wait as long. But the reward is more than worth it folks! Now we haven't tried the famous deep dish, stuffed pizza as it requires an additional 30 min wait time but anything on the menu is amazing.... More
