Gem in the middle of nowhere

This was delicious hand-tossed wood-fire pizza at its finest. The ingredients were fresh, the pizza was cooked to perfection and the proprietor was very friendly and gave us coupons to come back again when he heard it was our first time there.

About 130 in the afternoon, I passed the pizza joint, turned around and got 2 slices. Nice selection. Good flavor. Older building beside gas station. Give it a try

After Povorotti's closed in Dunnellon, I needed a good place for a decent pie. Not only did they have a good pizza..it was much better than Povo's. It does look like a dive, but the ingredients were fresh and appropriate, not skimpy. I locked it in my phone for many future meals.

Don't miss it, and don't my be put off by the humble exterior. Take out may be best unless you're from out of town, it's a small place. Tuesday night there are discounted specials. The pizza is outstanding, and the house wings are the best you'll ever eat.

Best pizza, hands down. All fresh ingredients. The pasta is as good as my wife's, and that's saying something! The portion is gigantic, anyone who can eat a whole one should be ashamed of themselves. Salads are HUGE and the dressing homemade. I have never seen a calzone as big as the one they make, EVER! The staff couldn't do... More

The folks couldn't be nicer and all the food is great and made to order. The pies are the best, with that wood smoke flavor and fresh ingredients. It's worth the trip to get there!
