Visited on a Saturday at 7:30PM. There were only a couple of tables open. Very pleasant, busy, family atmosphere. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive. The whole pizza making process is in the open, visible to the dining room and to the public through large picture windows. I like that. It implies they are proud of how they do things.... More

I used to enjoy this place when I was much younger. Had been 20 years since I went the last time though. Was really excited to go and take my family.so we went on a Saturday evening. We entered and found the place was busy but not packed. No line waiting to be seated. We took one of about six... More

Found this restaurant via tripadvisor while passing through Charleston...a good find. We ordered the thin crust vegetarian pizza with crispy crust. Perfect! However, the green salad was nothing more than a bagged iceberg lettuce...old and dry...brown edges...with a small packet of dressing and two packets of crackers. Not appealing. They should get fresh lettuce and serve it chilled and charge... More

Local pizza place that has a few unique special pizzas. If you enjoy sausage pizza, you definitely need to order the House Special. Menu does include a few basic, pasta choices. They are only open for dinner service.

My wife and I traveled to Charleston for the weekend, and were looking for a local, family-owned restaurant for dinner. What a nice treat! This is not frozen, pre-formed dough that gets slathered with some watery sauce and sparse toppings. This is the real thing! If you like sausage, I recommend theirs - they make their own! Good stuff!

When visiting my child at Eastern Illinois University and in a mood for pizza, this is the place to go. The place itself is nothing special. A little noisy, seat yourself and not a lot of room for a big party but service is good and pizza is better
