Pizza

Had the classic pizza - it was great! Service was excellent and the food was just as good. Tried the Beer sampler. The lighter colored beers were good, the darker ones tasted more like IPA. Nice place, I'd go again.

I have eaten here two years in a row with business associates. Last time was a group of 12. We had a wonderful waiter and a good time was had by all. All the food arrived at the same time. We had a variety of meals and shared most of them. Everyone was impressed. The Moss bread with the cinnamon... More

I visited with my friend, expecting to pay around $50 for the two of us. The pizza was a bit dry and I ordered drinks. The waitress pushed us to have more refills, and I didn't think much of it, but when I got the bill, I ended up paying over $100 for the two of us. There were many... More

Yes, bucket cocktails. They are awesome recommend the SuzyQ, in a little bucket.. I only had 1 drink though, LOL. Calamari appetizer is great - the Thai pizza is a must have!! Unique but excellent - trust your wait staff! They won't steer you wrong. They are friendly and sometimes you can participate in the Test Kitchen where they try... More

Love this place, hands down best pizza regardless of thin crust or other options for crust ordered. The tomatoes used with the seasonings reminiscent of the sauce used on pizzas back in Chicago, awesome. Appetizers like California dreamers , like pizza rolls with dipping sauce or other appetizers are really good, but it is the pizza that really rocks this... More

We were visiting Tacoma for the first time and staying at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel (which by the way was really nice.) When we asked hotel staff where the downtown was, we were told this is it. Lots of boarded up buildings and vacant store fronts. Needless to say, it's tough to find any decent food there, and not knowing... More
