Small facility, good wait staff, well above average pizza offered at a decent price. Parking can be a challenge at dinner time.

In town on business and decided to follow Tripadvisor reviewers advice. Very good pizza. The coal fired oven provides a nice crispy crust to the thin crusted pizza's. Choice of three red sauces with destinctive flavor and increasing "heat" factor. Also offer white sauce too. Had a peperoni and extra motzerella pie. Will stop back in next time I am... More

I've only been here twice, plus once for carryout. The pizza (classic sauce) is really good. I'm usually not a fan of 'thin crust' pizza, which is all they serve, but somehow they make a nice thin crust and it's not dry and brittle. It's actually an excellent crust, thin but chewy, a couple small bits of char, which reminds... More

This a go-to place in nice weather, to sit outside and enjoy pizza and wine - especially on Tuesday nights (wine 1/2 price). One of our favorite pizzas, served piping hot. Service can be spotty (seems there are often newbie waiters/waitresses), but it's a pizza joint, so no big deal when you can enjoy a meal al fresco.

We went here a few years ago and we forgot why we hadn't returned as we know many people love it. Well, within 5 minutes we knew why. When we walked in, a woman picking up her pizza was asking, "Is this pizza too burnt? I know it's supposed to have some char, but this looks burnt." The carryout female... More

The Classic was a hit in my family! Kids and adults loved it. Just the right amount of burnnnn and the cheese seems very Milkie. Like a good thick quality with lots of flavor and not like oil. We had salads and spaghetti with meatballs that seemed to be flavorless. I added black pepper and Parmesan cheese to flavor it... More

I am a regular here. The pizza is the best I have had in this area. The wings made in the pizza oven are unbelievable. The entire staff is friendly, and efficient

I didn't know what to expect when I found this restaurant nearby my hotel, but enjoyed it. The food I got was average, but the wine and bar scene was great. Pros As I mentioned above, the Chianti (I didn't get the name....) was very good, and the young lady bartending was very nice. There were several people seated at... More

Food was delicious and service was good. This appears to be a popular neighborhood pizza place. Plenty of seating inside but also great patio seating if the weather allows.

We have eaten in and taken out. Pizza is great either way. They have a thin crust pizza with 3 different sauces, all good. Many topping choices as well. There is something about the coal fired ovens that makes the pizza especially tasty. It reminds me of the pizza I had in southern Italy, maybe that is why I like... More
