Nothing spectacular. Just good pizza for take out when you need it. Probably my number two choice for pizza in Glastonbury, after Harry's pizza.

Visited a few times over the last few months. Have to say the deep dish pizza is the best we have had anywhere. But the regular crust pizza left me wondering if I was chewing the cardboard on the bottom of the pizza box, nothing great about it at all. While the deep dish was wonderful (with a ten rating)...

Ordered pasta w bolognese sauce (meat sauce). It was a bowl of mush. Way over cooked pasta and the "bolognese" sauce was clearly leftover meatballs and diced up sausage. Mush. I've given this place several chances and it was bad every time. Yeah, waitresses w tight tank tops but the food sucks.

We stopped by to pick up lunch on our way to the park on Sunday. We had great service and the eggplant and mixed Italian sandwiches and salad were awesome!

This place is like a Hooters pizza place. If you want to look at teenagers in tight tees asking you if you want a "hot slice," this is the place for you. Pizza tastes ketchupy. I would never let my daughter work here.

I took my 91 year old father here for lunch and it was a huge disappointment. He ordered spaghetti and meatballs and the dish was served without the meatballs. When we finally got the attention of our waitress, she seemed as though we were bothering her and when the dish came to us the second time, it was served cold.... More

Went in for lunch and wanted to get a couple of slices. I could not find the slice prices anywhere. There were three girls standing behind the counter doing absolutely nothing but talking. I ask the girls could you please tell me how much slices of pizza are?. The answer Anywhere between $3.00 and $7.00. It was almost like i... More

Restaurant is typical of a pizza place. Pizza was bland and not out standing on any factors. Sauce was weak, and the dough tasted blasé. We went there because we had a coupon, but would not venture back again, even with a coupon. There are much better pizza places around Glastonbury, CT.

A lot of people were raving about this place so my husband and I along with our 15 and 14 year old teenagers decided to give it a try. The pizza was good but I would not go out of my way to come to this place. Maybe they are the best in this area but $18.99 for a large... More
