Absolutely the best pizza in Corpus. They always have a crisp crust (coal fired oven) not as flavorful as a wood fired but great. Beer and Wine good selections. Calbrese salad and mozzarella good. They re-stoke the oven between 4-5 pm daily so avoid those times.

Loved everything about this place. Calzones were so, so delish. Lots of cheese and loads of flavor. Caesar salad was crisp and oh so yummy. Pizza was just cooked to perfection. Can't even begin to describe.... get there! Also, staff were among the friendliest the entire weekend. They know how to cater to their patrons!!!

This is a New York pizza and even made with ingredients imported to duplicate the original taste of the Brooklyn pizzeria. They make this pizza fresh and you can watch as they artfully toss... More

This place is located on the outside on La Palmera mall. We ate outside on a sunny evening and people watched while waiting for our dinner. They bring the kids pizza dough to play with and that keeps them occupied while they are waiting for dinner. The kids loved it, but bring some wipes with you to remove the dough... More

We are a big family so going some where, were everyone is going to like the food is big. This place is the place to go. We love the pizza and it's moderately priced.
