New York Style Pizza By The Slice or Whole

Probably my favorite place for pizza outside Chicago. Terrific, ample selection of toppings, from the usually pepperoni and extra cheese to gorganzola, artichoke hearts, and candied walnuts. I tend to prefer thicker crust pizzas, but not from Roman Candle. Their pizzas are best with floppy New... read more

I love that not only is the food tasty, but local. A great place to bring kids for some food and play.

I've been here twice and had a great experience both times. The pizza is delicious, cooked fresh, and served piping hot. It's also a great value price-wise. They use local cheeses and make their own crusts. I've tried almost every flavor they have, and even their vegan pizzas are killer. Who would have thought?!! They also serve local beers, and...

The waitress was very friendly. The candlesticks were awesome! We order the chix chix parm parm pizza. It was good but the chicken pieces could of been a little bigger. We love that you could get ice cream!

The delivery we just received took over an hour - which is fine- IF the pizza is delicious. Our pizza had a wet and soggy crust. I should be able to handle a slice of pizza without it flopping apart and leaving my hands wet. Won't order again.

Very good pizza. Their standard pizza comes in a very delicious thin crust. A 14" fed our family of 3.

We ordered a couple of pizzas the other day. Mushroom and Kalamata olives and the other was feta and spinach. I thought the Kalamata has real good flavor but I did not think the spinach and feta pizza did. We also got a large Cesar salad. I did not find the salad dressing to be very impressive. The pizza was... More

We come here a few times a year passing through and for awhile it was hot or miss. Tonight it was hit. Slow Thursday evening but whomever was working the kitchen was on target. The breadsticks were fluffy and tasty, our salads were jammed packed if all the goodies. (Many times it lacked and that was very sad) and our... More

This was the first time I felt that I was eating a healthy pizza. It actually had fresh basil on it. It is a cute place with booths and a pull down shelf where the pizza sits so as not to take up room on the table. The price was good also. And they had great oldies music playing.

I have seen some complaints about the service but we experienced non of that. The waitress was very patient with our young son, she played along with him when he wanted to order the pizza, even went as far as pretending to write down his order. She did a good job convincing us that we needed a beer so also... More
