Good for Carryout Pizza

I stop in usually once a week or two for a slice of pizza to go for my lunch, and am always happy with it. They have several varieties to choose from. Finally my husband and I decided to try to go there dinner - and did not have the same luck. The salad was fresh and large, and I... read more

This is literally my favorite restaurant now. The food is full of flavor!! The spaghettis are excellent, super fast and friendly service, and actually tastes like real Italian food (I've been to Italy)! The pizza is not that greasy american type, but a nice flat cheesy pizza, and it is delicious! Marinara sauce tastes great, and basically anything on the... More

Stopped in for a quick pizza snack and forgot how good the pizza is here. The crust is thin and crispy and the sauce and cheese are tasty. We usually get the pizza here so can't comment on the other dishes, but the pizza is one of the best around. Try it and you will agree!

Used to go weekly but then the the pizza quality went downhill. Pizza is only good if it is fresh -- anywhere. Seems the pizza has been sitting there far too long to be served. Dinner quality also down. A shame, we used to like going.

I don't know who's writing these reviews, but they're either being paid to write them, or they've never left Ellicott City. Ever see those review where the person blasts the restaurant and you wonder what happened to make them write such a bad review? That's what happened today. We ordered a slice of cheese pizza, chicken Parmesan, and pesto gnocchi.... More

It is baffling to me that this place could earn the third spot in the rankings for Ellicott City's best restaurants. After reading the glowing reviews on this site, I chose to give the place a try. I usually favor the local pizza joints, so I figured the pizza must be no better or worse than the place I usually... More

Good pizza but it is not the best in the area (that's Pepinos in Burtonsville). This is a take out restaurant with a few tables which are available if you want to eat in. Pizza has great crust. I tried the meatballs topping but I got indigestion latter on. Bruschetta was good. Frankly, I was disappointed after such raving reviews.... More

Simply put...best pizza in Ellicott City/Howard County. My wife often gets the veal parm...and loves it too. But I can't try anything else because the pizza is so good. On Mondays...they have large pizzas for like $8. Can't beat it. We go there for dinner probably once every two weeks. Friendly service...clean restaurant/bathrooms...Highly recommend.
