I ate here a couple times prior to the new owners taking over and the pizza tasted like cardboard. Seriously, I've never had such disgusting pizza in my life. I decided to give them a third try when I heard it was under new ownership and was pleasantly surprised. The pizza was fresher tasting and definitely didn't taste like cardboard.... More

Small and plain, order and pay at the counter but not too noisy or uncomfortable with booths and tables. Subpar crust, cheese and sauce. Close to the worst Pizza I have ever had. We ordered 5 toppings and got a meatless wonder with 3. No lemon or lime either for the Corona.

Very small space. Pizza is ok. High prices. If they offered unique or high end topping choices, I could justify the prices. (Only one that stood out as unique was reindeer sausage). Service is average. Gelato is yummy. I would give it another try, but it probably won't be our "go to" pizza place.

I think they have some of the better pizza in town for the price. Can be busy, but the service and quality of food is pretty good. May be a littlw bit high priced for what you get, but it is Fairbanks, AK and you can't expect exceptional often. All in all I would recommend them to anyone.

Stopped in last night and didn't know about the new ownership--its terrible. Ordered two $26 pizzas and one had about 5 pieces of cheese on it and that's it. Crust was awful, I should have just eaten the napkins instead. Seriously though, I would pick Papa Murphy's, Papa John's, or any other chain over this place now.

Really makes me sad. This was our go to place after long summer days working in the yard or picking up kiddos on winter evenings. Friday night family pizza nights happened here for us ALOT. Our favorite pizza/gelato joint up until recently. In all fairness, I have given them a couple of opportunities to work out the new ownership. Truth... More

We used to love the pizzas but since the restaurant changed owners it's nothing special and we don't go there any more.

These folks make pizza I like. It isn't a large place, but is packed with good food, well made, with plenty of variety and the freedom to choose what you want done with it. My favorite is called Finlandia, just one of many pre-designed combinations. I order it "double cut", which means more slices, narrower than the usual. That keeps... More

Very good pizza. Small place, maybe 40 seats in all, but super friendly service. Had a med size pizza ask for additional sauce and more cheese and got exactly what I ordered.

This was above average pizza and the fact that they served gelato, with lots of unique flavors made it that much better. Good meal.
