Here we go...another fabulous Downtown Montgomery restaurant! Locally owned and operated, this place offers the freshest Italian you can find in Central Alabama. The pizzas are on thin, hand-tossed, brick-oven-baked crust and the toppings are unique and delicious! The drinks from the bar are fabulous!...More

GET THE LAMB KAFTA PIZZA! Yummmm! Service was great even with a big group. No issue splitting the bill. Just a great night. Oh and the pizza is 18” so you’ll have leftovers.
