Best pizza

Love sven and ollies. Although it is the busy season they still only have one person taking orders at the counter. There was no available seating but we got lucky and happened upon a group that was just leaving. Pizza is delicious but the value is not great.

The wide variety of pizza choices and and the easy comfort make this feel just like home. Grab a beer or cocktail, or soft drink and your pizza will appear relatively shortly or before the northern lights come out. Wild rice on your pizza? Try lutefisk... But always polite good service and good 'za.

Didn't feel like going out to dinner after a long day of sightseeing on the way up from Mpls., so we thought we'd have pizza delivered to our hotel room. $57.00 for two large pies. Really pricey, but after reading all the glowing reviews we decided to go for it. Big mistake. Have had frozen grocerie store pizzas that were... More

We got carry out pizza and the place was packed. It is one of the few family friendly restaurants in town. The pizza was good, but not spectacular as we had read. But I would recommend it.

We ordered pizza to go, so I can't comment on the restaurant itself. I think the novelty of the restaurant is most of the draw, though the pizza was very tasty, albeit a bit overpriced. But now we can say we've been here!

Great pizza but a pricy - $43 for two small salads, two cokes and a 16 inch pizza with multiple toppings. You order at the counter get your own drinks, salt/pepper napkins and silver at stations in the dining room. They deliver order to the table and we did get a to go box from a bus person.

Wish this pizza joint was where we lived. Awesome pizza! The late night bartender was fun and on top of things. Was able to get scooped ice cream even after they were closed!

You cant miss the signs and bumper stickers for this place. It is an institution for sure, but it really isn't that great. The pizza is fine, the view is great, the service is excellent.

While the pizza is very good, the condition of the restaurant could be updated and cleaned up a bit. The dead plants are not good and sticky tables not appreciated. The pizza is worth going, but it would be best taken out.
