Good local pizza joint

Very casual place, clean, but nostalgic feeling. Service was pretty good, but not outstanding. Pizza was good, but not outstanding. We got the Kitchen Sink. Thick, chewy crust, plenty of cheese (yay!) but forgettable sauce. It reminded me of what Pizza Hut used to taste like back in the day... read more

The philly pizza has a ton of meat on it. The Greek pizza, hold the meat, is outstanding. You can't go wrong with... More

Tried this place for the first time----------- and Last ! We ordered a Large Amore Roma Pizza and The Parmesean Bread sticks to go. Pizza was not great------ Undercooked and a Soggy Crust. I prefer the top crust to be nice and crispy----- not mushy.Parmesean Bread sticks came with a cold Marinara sauce, both unspectacular. I will have to go... More

Out of town from San Antonio for the weekend and wanted to try something local. Walked into the establishment and wasn't greeted or acknowledged. Sign said "seat yourself" so we sat down to a table which hadn't been cleaned or prepped because the other empty tables were in even worse condition. Proceeded to wait over 10 minutes with my guest... More

We stopped here while visiting Padre Island for an afternoon on the beach on a warm February day. We stopped at a convenience and asked for a good place to get Pizza and were given advise that this was the best place to go in the Corpus Christi area. Nice clean little place with good customer service and very friendly... More

Love the Sicilian. Their crust is so good and the quality is consistently good. The price is fair for the good quality. A great place for a casual family dinner.

This restaurant is a great find. It rolls good value and service together with great food and lots of choices to achieve one of the best pizzas I've eaten in recent memory. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

We ordered a deluxe pizza and were so astonished as to the freshness of all the ingredients! This was the absolute best pizza we have ever had and will definitely come back next time we are in Corpus Christi! Loved it!
