Ordered the daily special, which was a large 3-topping pizza. The pizza came out not done. The cheese wasn't even melted on it. Had to send it back to cook some more. It was not tasty at all. Had a big problem keeping all of the flies away from our food. Just not a pleasant visit at all. Won't be... More

Very good food. We had pizza, garlic knots, and salad. All very good, and the food is made by true Italians - can't go wrong there.

Forget the ambiance, forget the service. Excellent, excellent pizza. The best we have enjoyed in years since moving from Long Island. They make the sauce, superb; evenly balanced with plenty of cheese on an airy dough and baked to perfection. This along with extremely large glasses of assorted drinks and we were well satisfied after a day out camera hunting... More

I then called the restaurant to inform them that I have my credit card info. The girl stated that she never got a card from... More

We gave the restaurant a try with two foreign workers from Shenandoah NP. They were just learning about American food and when we suggested eating pizza, they said yes. They saw the menu options and tried a couple of the Italian dishes instead. The service was slow and the food preparation time was extremely slow. The bread was tremendous. The... More

I saw the reviews were good - but seeing how it looked like a fast food joint, I was skeptical at best. However, it was the 4th of July and this was the only place in town that could immediately feed the 3 of us (a ravenous 3 after a hike!). We had a margherita Pizza, fettucine alfredo and a... More

This place was recommended by our hosts so we tried it for dinner one night. The portions are huge! We ended up taking our leftovers home and then having them again for dinner the next night! We had pasta and what we ordered, we definitely enjoyed it again. The food is very tasty and delicious. Whatever is in that pasta... More

Two adults and four tweens / teens had lunch here. We split two pies plus a small salad. The food was great, five star for a local pizza place. Pies were well prepared with great toppings, sauce, and cheese. The small salad was large, my wife could only eat about half. Prices were right as well. Server was not well-informed... More
