We went here for dinner on Saturday, March 24, 2012. We got there and were seated immediately. The restaurant was not overly crowded. We got our drinks and placed our order - a medium chicago style cheese pizza - not too tricky!
About a half hour later, we had not gotten our food, but Chicago style pizzas do tend to take a bit longer. 40 minutes passed when the waitress brought our pizza, but instead of Chicago style, it was regular (like hand tossed) crust. How on earth that took 40 minutes was beyond me. She asked us if we wanted to wait for a new one to be made. Well, we were hungry, so we said no and just took that one. We were quite irritated. However, the pizza was DELICIOUS.
A few minutes later, the waitress asked us if we were disappointed, and we said yes, as we had ordered something else, and she offered us a free pizza to take home. We said no, as we had no place to store it. A couple minutes later, the manager came over, apologized, and told us he would charge us for a small pizza and give us a 15% discount on top of that off of our bill.
So while there was an error, the staff was really quite good about "fixing" it, and the pizza was super good. I would recommend this restaurant if you are in the mood for really tasty pizza and you're not in a hurry!!! :)
