Very nice brick oven pizzas. We also love the onion rings and wings. They could have a better beer selection, but otherwise this is a great place to drop by for either lunch or dinner. It does fill up quickly on weekends, like all places in Columbia.

I really enjoyed the pizza, my husband had a sandwich which was absolutely delicious. The menu pretty good, I wish they had appetizers and desserts, the wings were suggested as an appetizer, but I just don't like them, and I enjoy having appetizers and dessert in restaurants. The pizza was really good, a smidge salty, but that's a personal preference.... More

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
