Great for lunch

recently had lunch here w a friend...shared a pizza and each had a salad. Arrived early so it wasn't crowded but there was one server and it could've easily overwhelmed her if it had been crowded. Food was very good and fresh. Really like their pizza. Service was friendly and quick. Will return

We went for a work Christmas party with a large group. The food was good. I thought their should have been more than one server. I didn't like that the server was working so hard he was literally dripping the sweat, that was gross. The food was good and came quickly especially with as many people as we had. Don't... More

We tried this place as we found it on Tripadvisor and was actually pretty good. We had their pizza and calzones which were made in their brick oven pizza and were pretty good. The pizza is made on really thin crust and the calzone was pretty big. Would love to try their grinders or pitas if I ever am in... More

We have a group of 6 couples who often get together for dinner at a local restaurant. It was our turn to choose the place and make reservations. We chose Machiavelli’s mainly because we love their food and also because they have a private room. It worked out even better than we had thought. I stopped by in the afternoon... More

I've had several pizzas from here and they've always been delicious. The crust, sauce and cheese tastes superior to other pizzas. The pesto was very good as well.

We had lunch and dined outside. Our service was great and the pizza pita was excellent. Nice menu and pretty decor inside. I would return here for the evening menu. It looks so wonderful.
