Quite honestly I don't see what all the fuss is about. We've tried this place a few times and were never impressed with the food or service. In fact on two separate occasions my wife had to send back food because it either had a bad taste like it was old or it was cold. I doubt we will be... More

To be quite honest with you- my expectations were set high for this place. Sadly, I didn't find there pizza to be that good. They were voted the best in Staten Island which surprises me. The sauce is what did it for me. I didn't like it. I also don't think it's the best in Staten Island. Maybe it's just... More

This seems to be one of those places that everyone loves, but me. I've read so many great reviews that I had to try it. And while I can appreciate the atmosphere and how it's always happening, and the servers are also nice, etc... this turned out to be not my favorite pizza on the island.

Easily one of the best places for pizza on the north shore. Get there early or you may end up waiting. A cash only place (ATM in lobby) but every pie is worth the wait. MOR, plain, sausage...it is all so good!
