Pizza is authentic Italian

I like the Big Mike Special and their thin crust. This is a very old restaurant in Lafayette - in a good way - it has stood the test of time. I never order any of the Italian dishes because I ordered the Lasagna once and preferred my recipe - probably because my recipe is not authentic - Ha... read more

The pizza here is great. Not to thick and it is crispy and flavorful. The kids love the cheese sticks. They couldn't get enough. The pizza was so good I had to bring one home.

I haver never had such a delicious pizza before. It has a crunchy, slim crust, and the sauce is just the right amount to act as a stage for the delicious toppings! No wonder the place has been there for decades. It is really good italian stuff!

Had the pizza. Super good. I'm really picky about my pizza. The crust was thin but not like a cracker. It was delicious. Service was good too. It's never very busy, but don't let that fool you

Pros: Their pizza is the best because the ratio of toppings/sauce/crust is just perfect! The service is always great. Very laid back atmosphere. Cons: On the busiest street in Lafayette But they do deliveries now! So the Con isn't so bad. It's an old establishment, but don't judge the food on that. All in all, if you visit Lafayette and...

A local coworker said the place was a longtime establishment with good food. Upon entering I was concerned that there was only one other patron in the whole place. Being from out of town that concerned me and at 6:15 on a weekday I thought it should be busier. I was quickly greeted and seated at a table. The decor... More

We have tried a few things here but the ravioli appetizer is my favorite. The all meat pizza is yummy too. There is a pasta combo dish that's pretty good.

We have been going to this restaurant for over 30+ years and LOVE the pizza. The pasta is good too. Not a newer fancy place, has same appearance since I was young. What has changed in the last few times has been the service, and not for the better. We don't live in Lafayette any more but still like to... More

Great service from Janelle and tasty lasagna, give it a try. Not a fan of the anti pasta plate but overall we had a great experience. We will return
