I'm from Chicago but have been living in Montana and Georgia recently. I miss the awesome pizza in Chicago. This pizza was very respectable - way better than anything I've found so far in MT and GA. They delivered faster than they said and the delivery man came up to my 2nd floor room, which was nice.

And here's why... Pizza crust: crust looks good but by the time it gets to your table, other than the crust, the entire pizza is soggy on the bottom..very soggy. Reason is: they are serving it on a surface that does not let the bottom get air to stay dry and crusty. No clean knives and they never did bring... More

I've eaten at Papa Leno's three times on 2 business trips to this area. I've had pizza twice and an Italian sub once. The pizza is simply some of the absolute best I have ever had! Just hard to describe. The Italian sub (hot) was delicious also, just be aware that there isn't much meat on it, just a thin... More

Great place for the whole family. Very kid-friendly. Excellent pizza, too bad no alcohol sales allowed in the town.

It was fun to watch the chef making the pizzas and the taste of the food did not disappoint. Salads were somewhat disappointing.

Best pizza joint in town! This mom and pop pizza shop has been apart of the Berea experience for me ever since I was a little boy traveling here with my grandparents. The food is absolutely amazing, and the ambiance of being in a local small business is a great feeling while admiring the beauty of Berea College’s campus.

The staff and very friendly. We ordered pasta which was good, but the bread stick was amazing. It was the size of a loaf of bread and was served in a puddle of garlic butter. Healthy? No! Tasty? Oh yes! You order at the counter and they deliver your food. It's a very casual atmosphere.

I know---the menu and ambience are totally different---but this place was highly recommended to us by a staff member at Boone Tavern when we couldn't get in for lunch. Just a block away, it offers quick and delicious Italian food. Place is larger than it looks. Order at the counter and they bring your food.

My favorite order here is grilled chicken salad, with the fresh veggie and yummy chicken, served with tasty garlic bread. Healthy, delicious, and affordable.
