The food was great and the atmosphere was so relaxed we stayed and drank more. At 7pm on a Tuesday night we still had to wait... More

A decent pizza, if kind of generic - a step of two up from say, Round Table, but really, I've had hundreds of better pies. The atmosphere is nice - especially on a sunny day sitting outside, with live music playing. The service is fair to good, the ingredients on the pies seem fresh, but the dough itself was not... More

Had the barbeque chicken pizza. It was fabulous! Had it twice, as a matter of fact. Also loved the jalapeno infused tequila margarita. Outstanding! Others had the veggie pizza which got a great review also.

Stopped in while walking through the Villages and we had a couple of personal pizzas, both were good. Can't say they weere the best ever but very good and worth the stop. The prices are good and the service was exceptional.

It's a little difficult to find but well worth it. We ate outside in the cool night air, they had heaters well positioned and a live band. Great atmosphere! We had the Mediterranean pizza. Excellent!! Wish we lived near here, I would make it a regular.

The pizza was very good, but the server was horrible! We had a large table and he tried to take our order without writing it down, big mistake. He came back three times to confirm our order and he even forgot one guys food. Clearly he can not remember orders, write it down!

We have a couple of places at home that surpass the pizza at Base Camp. Service was excellent though. Pizza hit the spot....they offer live music which is also a plus.
