“Best pizza in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is the best place to eat pizza with your family. There is always life music. They have choices for you to select your favorite ingredients. The pear walnut salad is delicious!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Ate here around 9:30 at night with the kids. Short wait and lively musician to entertain. Heaters on patio. Excellent service and food. Moderate priced.

“Pretty Good But Not Great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had an extremely long wait and the food was good. All the servers, employees were very friendly, especially considering how busy they were. Their bartender made very good cocktails as well. Definitely worth a try.

“Excellent pizza, poor service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

The pizza here is excellent, and they have a very tasty gluten-free crust option. They have some very good salad options. And a great menu.

However, their service is lackluster and leaving something to be desired. In fact, the service was horrible. If you are a big party here, they automatically include gratuity. So the wait staff basically ignores you. Maybe if you are a smaller party, you'll have better luck with the service.

However, even though the service was bad I would still highly recommend this restaurant. We have eaten at several places while here in Lake Tahoe, but this place was by far the best. It is not a five-star restaurant, but the food here is outstanding.
