Little Pizza Place

I've read some of the last reviews posted, and I just wanted to say that is place has a ton of regulars. It may be small, but they have a lot of business. We stopped in during the snow storm, and they were still slightly busy with deliveries and pick ups. The staff is very interested in their... read more

Don't eat here. They don't know how to manage orders. We waited an hour and never got our order. When we asked about our order the manager was extremely rude and seemed like he was gonna get violent. They couldn't find our order. We demanded a refund and got one but never any food. Don't go here especially if you... More

It took 40 minutes for my order to come. When it arrived it tasted okay, but not exceptional enough to take almost an hour to arrive. They don't have any wait staff, which I found odd. The pizza delivery guys seemed to be doing double duty so customer service was lacking. They weren't mean, but I didn't feel that welcome... More

During a conference I took a group of teenagers here to stuff them with Pizza and it was a great success. We walked to the shop from the Prairie Capitol Convention Center (it was two blocks west and one block south). We called ahead and head a large table and several pizzas already prepared for us upon arrival. For 12... More

It's very attractive from the outside but, upon entering it's filthy. Then upon eating one of their "Sicilian" pizzas it gets even worse literally a greasy sponge, pick something else is my advice!

Very reasonably priced pizza. Locals eat here as the owners appeared to know many of the customers. We ordered a deep dish pizza...didn't get exactly what we ordered so we were a bit disappointed. Restaurant needs updating....badly

Looking for a place to eat while visiting the Lincoln museum. We ended up here on a whim. The pizza was old school and very good. I haven't dug into a pizza like that in a long time. The Staff was friendly and attentive. I would visit here again and recommend it to anyone who enjoys real pizza.

The place looks like something out of the 1960s. You order at the counter from an old school menu. They were even speaking Italian behind the counter. They are called a pizzeria, but carry other items like calzones, spaghetti, lasagna, linguini, etc. I had the spaghetti and meatballs and my husband had the pepperoni pizza. He was wondering if it...

The pizza is pretty good, but the atmosphere feels like you stepped back in time. This place is counter service only, but they deliver to a fairly substantial area. Most importantly, they deliver next door so you can have awesome brews with your pizza. The pizza is a fairly thin hand toss, but the dough is adequate and they use... More

On our way home from St. Louis, we decided on a pizza lunch stop. It was just what we were looking for as time was limited. The guy at the counter was more friendly than most at pizza establishments. He welcomed us very warmly. We arrived right before the health inspectors arrived for an inspection! They came in with clipboards... More
