Great pizza and salads

Alway fresh, fast, predictable and where we go when we are craving good, hot pizza. This is the only pizza I have had in Gainesville as I haven't felt a need to go anywhere else.

I ordered a basic salad and a slice of cheese pizza and it was fine.,I think I would have liked it better if I ordered one of their more unique items. Their calzones were huge.

We ate here for lunch and I enjoyed the variety of pizza available by the slice and option for other Italian food like calzones etc. This is a walk up and order yourself. The drinks are given to you and they deliver the food to your table. It is a classic college town dive atmosphere. Our table was barly holding... More

This is a very good pizza. Baked in open oven. Lots of choices on the menu or customize it. They have pizzas cooked and ready to go by the slice. Other pies on the menu as well. Prices arn't bad either. I would recommend this place highly! I know i will be back.
