So good!!!

Hands down one of the best places to eat in Waterloo! The inside is really small so we never eat in there.. If you order delivery expect to wait over a hour but I promise you it's worth the wait!! The meatball sandwich might be the best thing you ever eat! They also have great pizza and salads... read more

Would never eat here. Was told to leave after asking I guess the owner why it's taking over 2 hours to get food and no offer of free food for wait. Then owner told me to get the F out on front of my child. All I said was I wouldn't come back to eat again. Great business buddy.

LOVE this place, they have the freshest toppings and the sauce is nice and sweet. They don't skimp on the toppings. We have also been to the one in Belleville as well but prefer the one in Waterloo, we just think it's better quality. This place only has around 5 tables, but worth it if you can get a table....

Love the pizza here. The slices are big. I always get the white pizza and love it. My son and husband have gotten cheese, pepperoni and ham with pineapple and they have always been pleased. A big favorite with my two guys are the garlic knots they bring to the table for you to enjoy while you wait. I love... More

The pizzas, sandwiches and salads are outstanding because they are freshly prepared to order. With only one oven this means a one hour wait is not unusual. Call ahead.

The food is cravable! Just wished they were open more, like during lunch like they used to be!!! The food is absolutely delicious and mounds of it, if you order pizza it is 3 inches high with toppings and that goes with everything, from the salads to the sandwiches!

If you get a chance to have the French Dip here, TAKE IT! It's wonderful!! Get a salad with it and you'll have enough for 2 meals. Huge portions and tasty sandwiches... Try their new Belleville location as well, which has more seating and nice cold beer.

The pizza here is always superb. I challenge anyone to find a better pizza in Southern Illinois. The only problem is they are always busy in the evening. You should add about 15 minutes to whatever time they quote you to pick up a carry out. But the pizza makes it well worth it.

First of all this restaurant has no sign. I drove by 3 times before I guessed that it was Papa Vitos. The place is very tiny with only a few tables making seating difficult for our family. The pizza was good but nothing exceptional that I could not get at many St. Louis restaurants. It was standard St. louis style... More
