Well, first of all, I wouldn't know if I liked the food or drink. I never got service. As we entered around 11am today, right at opening we were seated immediately. There were other tables with customers and several employees working. However, we were seated and given menu's, after 10 plus minutes, no one came to our table. Several employees... More

This is a small restaurant that is tucked away in a very friendly neighborhood. It is an old church that has been converted to a fabulous restaurant. The food is excellent!, especially the bread sticks with the garlic butter!!

So worth the parking hassles. We were seated immediately and drinks and food were great. They had a $10 lasagna special that was such a great surprise. This place was a home run!

This place has great bread sticks... But the best thing here is is the wings! They have the BEST wings in Kentucky! You have to get them when you go.

When the congregation outgrew it, the building was sold and became a synagogue. When they outgrew it as well, Joe B picked it up and moved his pizza restaurant into the building. We got the... More

Been going there for years, like the Sicilian style pizza where you select toppings, seems better pizza than items ordered from menu. We also use carry out service sometimes. Great pizza where you choose each and every topping.

If I only had a couple dollars, I would be full with 1 bread stick and either the melted butter or marinara sauce to dip. But my real favorite here is the veggie pizza.....and what is amazing about it, it is better cold than hot. We pack the car with pizza on a trip and you always have great pizza... More
