We have tried their pizza and calzones. Crusts are wonderful, and so generous with good ingredients. The Best!

Here as my father in law is in the VA hospital and thought we would try out something local. So glad we did! Had the white pie with ricotta and it was the bomb! Friendly and helpful staff. Small, but worth the trip!

Food quality is fine. Had the Pit special subor some such thing. At first I thought they'd left off the meat cuz all I could see was gobs of lettuce and some (underripe) tomato. But upon further inspection I discovered the wafer-thin slices of salami and pepperoni. And I think it was $8...maybe $7. But a overpriced for what it... More

Good pizza with plentiful toppings, great steak sandwiches and excellent fries! Friendly staff. Downside is that the building and parking lot are small - go early to avoid crowds although there is a large outdoor dining area. Will definitely go again.

these people always get it right when it comes to your food and beer. I drink corona with lime slice and theirs is always cold and never 'skunky' tasting like other places. Meaning they let their beer get cold, then warm, and then back into the cooler they go. You can really taste it when that happens in Corona.

This little restaurant is near where I live but I had never been until last night. For about $25 all in, my wife and I enjoyed our Italian entrees, a fresh salad bar and iced teas. Service was very good and the food was delicious. We will go back.

When we arrived, we let them know it was our first time dining there & with a warm welcome, the young man that seated us quickly put in an order of complimentary cheese bread for us! Staff was really friendly and service was great! The marinara sauce very flavorful and ricotta tortellini delish. Just wish they'd put spring mix on... More

Place promises a wood fired pizza experience. On arrival from the parking lot the aroma was AMAZING! Waitress was very young - not sure if purposely aloof or just shy. I ordered an individual pizza and my wife a pasta dish. My pizza's crust was cooked to crispy perfection. The stone in the oven must be so hot the crust... More
