So that is what REAL pizza taste like!

I have eaten a ton of pizza in my years, but nothing has come remotely close to the pizza here. The cheese was incredible - from your very first bite you will know that you are in for a top shelve experience. The chunky tomato sauce was spot on with just the right balance between sauce and... read more

Excellent! My pre-teen daughters and I sat at the pizza bar and watched them make then cook our pizza in the wood fire oven. Great service, friendly atmosphere, obvious favorite of locals, and hospitable owner/chef. We got there at 6pm on Saturday night and still made the 7:05 movie around the corner! Will definitely return on my next trip to... More

It's a little out of the way but worth the drive. Great wood fired pizza that the whole family enjoyed! We sat outside for a late weekday lunch and it was very quiet.

I stumbled across this restaurant several years ago when traveling in the area on business and this is always my first choice when I'm in Pensacola. My wife and I stayed in the area on our way to Mobile from Tampa, so naturally this was our choice for dinner. As usual, they did not disappoint and both the service and... More

My husband and I visited here in February for dinner after reading all the great reviews. It did not disappoint! The wait was fair (about 45 minutes on a Saturday night) but the meal itself was well worth the wait. Service was great, food was even better. We started with the Antipasto platter which was fantastic. A great combination of... More

My husband and I were driving through Pensacola heading home and saw this restaurant on TripAdvisor. They had mostly excellent reviews and my husband really wanted some pizza. My husband got the Abbondanza pizza and I got the Bianca and added chicken to it! It really wasn't too long of a wait and was worth it! The only negative I'd... More

We are so glad you found our little local restaurant & enjoyed yourselves! Thank you very much for your comments. In regards to the server sections, I can see how that might look confusing to someone... Although the outside seating is always open, customers choosing to sit outside can be inconsistent; therefore, we do have 3 servers that work the... More

As soon as you walkin. You come face to face with an imported wood burning oven. I had the magherita. My partner had the white pizza. With extra pepperoni topping. The smell of oak or hickory wood. And taste of the crust is to die for. Wine by the glass very reasonable. We had the chianti. Very well balance with... More

You are absolutely correct- we use oak wood for the wood burning oven. The smell is unique & fantastic, but we think the flavor is even better! Thank you so much for your wonderful comments- come back & see us soon! More

If so popular, have the staff to match the apparent demand. Our waitress was great, but greatly overwhelmed by the crowd. Recommendation? Invest in more brick ovens because one does not cut it at all. The pizza is good, not great, so why the wait?

This is a small airy restaurant just south of Cordova Mall where the central feature is a wood fired pizza oven. We stopped by before the crowd got there on a Saturday and you could tell this is a crowded place on the weekend. We had their house salads, the bruschetta app and a margheita pizza - all perfectly made/cooked.... More
