I love the quaint location in old Glendale right across from the park! But better than that, I love the food!! My family and I have tried several dishes and they have all been delicious. My teenage son dreams about their linguini with white clam sauce! I love the Italian Stallion pizza and the chicken lasagna is rich and decadent.... More

Good Naples-certified pizza, unless you've been to Pomo or Lamp, both of which are much better in our opinion. After a couple of different pizzas, our party of all ages judged it "OK". Too thick crust dominated the other quality ingredients and affected the taste balance. Great service, and not rushed on a very busy night of Glendale Glitter. Good... More

Great Pizza! Had the Italian Stallion and a plain cheese pizza both were DELICIOUS! Great crew! Friendly, engaging, tasty pizza, great service, clean and accommodating. Also seems family oriented and community focused. Loved it. Thank you. Well done. Wonderful experience.

My mom saw this on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and decided she wanted to go. She was going to pay but then I found it was part of the Advantage Dining so I paid. I ordered the Italian Stallion pizza and she ordered Chicken Marsala. The items were not brought out at the same time so I sat with... More

We went here for dinner with my daughters family (3 children included) The food is excellent and the service is just as good! The server had so much patience with the children it made the whole experience wonderful. The wood fired pizza is always an excellent choice, so it the pasta. You can't miss on this one! Would highly recommend.

Have been here several times over the years and should have known something was up - they were surprisingly slow for a Saturday night. Well, the menu has really changed! No more of their wonderful Spaghetti Bake took it off the menu and they didn't even have meatballs. They weren't out - they don't make them anymore! Stuffed Shrimp was... More

We were looking for some great places to bring our son to for dinner during his move to AZ for college. This one kept popping up on our searches and I have to say, it didn't disappoint. He and I each ordered our own pizza and they were both amazing. My son loves pizza and his comment about halfway through... More

We love this place, food is consistently good, service can sometimes be a little slow but I'm sure it's because they're always busy.
