Just OK

I had the Margherita pizza. Toppings okay but the crust was not good at all. It tasted like a frozen pizza and but I can say that I have actually had frozen pizza that had better crusts. Also, the prices were way too high for what you get, the cheapest 10" pizza was $11.00. I would not recommend... read more

The food is ok but the prices too high. We were not impressed with the quality of the food. Especially for the price.

Passing through Payson on a driving vacation, we ate here on the recommendation of a shop owner. We are glad we did. They have a full bar--important after a long day in the car--and the food was delicious. The green salad was very fresh and decorated with a few pieces of pepperoni. I had the spinach and cheese roll and... More

There were lots of good options on the menu, service was prompt and pleasant, My husband ordered the chicken marsala, and I had the pizza w/ feta and spinach. Both were very good and we shared them back and forth – they also had spumoni .. so we HAD to have that for dessert. Good beer and wine list, we... More

Their pizza is so-so (far better than Pizza Hut, though). Some of their pasta dishes are pretty good. Service has been good to poor at times.

The family and I went up to Payson for the weekend and decided to stop and grab a bite on our way back down. It was Sunday evening and we were in the mood for some good pizza. We didn't want cardboard box tasting pizza factory so we decided to try Cardo's. Great choice for us. We had the mushroom... More

Spent the weekend in Payson, hubby and I decided to get a pizza and take back to motel. This was the worst pizza we have ever had. Still we were hungry so we did both eat a slice, and was up all night with a bad stomach.

My client suggested this place as the best Italian food in town and he's obviously right. Service was prompt and pleasant and food was wonderful. I had the "Pasta with Personality"....perfectly cooked pasta with enough toppings to taste like a cross between pasta and pizza. They have a full bar....wine list is limited but some nice selections. Very large portions....and... More
