Variety is The Pizza

The ambiance is nothing special, but the variety of pizza choices is great; some unusual choices. Not to say that they don't have the more typical stuff as well, but have an adventure!

We stopped at this little Italian Restaurant to get pizza to take back to our cabin. The staff was very nice and offered for us to sit at a table while we waited on our order. It's a small place and doesn't look like much, but the food was amazing. Our pizza and salads were simply delicious! I also watched... More

This is one of those "hole in the wall" restaurants that you just know has to be good! The portions are huge and the freshly cut fries are fantastic. There were no complaints at our table about the quality of everything we ordered. We had the turkey and bacon sub, hot steak sub, gyro platter and a gyro sandwich. The... More

Their "small" chicken salad is always to big for me to eat all of it. The sub's are my husbands favorite. And their pizza is so good and stringy the way I like it. I've never had a messed up order either. Love them!

Best sub sandwiches & pizza in Asheville & the largest chef salad in town ! The waitress staff is very attentive !! I recommend the steak combo sub ( large ) it's the best in town !

Tried the spaghetti and meatballs with a Greek salad, salad was way better. Not impressed with the meatballs, very bland but spaghetti was good. Big portions so order accordingly ;)

This place looks like your typical "pizza place by the side of the road" establishment. But don't be fooled. The pizzas are excellent, the service is friendly and prompt and the menu has a lot of variety. Actually, the "typical" - that word again - Greek/Italian pizza place menu. But wait....you didn't try the desert! These are wonderful. Matter of... More

Love going to this little hideaway on Leicester highway. The subs are delicious, the pizza is amazing, and the service is expedient. My wife and I frequently dine and will continue too for years too come!

We ordered spaghetti and a cheese pizza. Nothing spectacular. The cheese was good but the tomato sauce didn't compliment it. Whoever cooked up the sauce needs to find another recipe. Barlic bread was not cooked enough. Service was friendly but a bit on the slow side. Will probably not return.
