Their pizza sauce just made the pizza wonderful. Reminded my husband of Chicago pizza. Meatball sandwich very good. Would maybe prefer smaller meatballs instead of so big, to be juicier.

I had the Italian sub combo with a very fresh green salad. The toasted bread adds a special touch. This place has excellent food but it's small so seating and parking can be challenging right at noon.

Pizzas are fresh made with good ingredients nice crispy thin crust. Pasta is serviceable. This is where the dog eats when he craves pizza, pasta, beer from the bottle and a local sports game on the TV watched by staff and eaters alike. Shorts and t-shirts are cool here so no doubt return is inevitable.

Staying at a nearby hotel and walked over for dinner and were very pleased. We shared the Greek Salad which was fresh and delicious. Since they offer a gluten free pizza, my wife ordered that while I had the baked ziti. No complaints as the pizza crust was very good according to my wife. The ziti with sausage was very... More

Our offices recently moved so we have all been trying every restaurant around here (Bristol & Newport). I understand that it was lunch time but it took over an hour for my order to be delivered. Mental note, order earlier next time. Also the driver seemed confused on how much the order actually was and I think I paid too... More

Get there before noon if you want a place to sit, or you'll be taking food out. Place gets very busy at lunch time, and the food is very good. Had the chicken parm and being from the east coast was impressed. Was good. They also offer beer/wine/water/soda, etc.

I was hoping for a really good experience here, especially considering the reviews. My uncle from Vietnam was in town and loves pizza, so we wanted to show him what really good pizza would be like. I actually enjoy deep dish pizza, but I think my uncle would have thought it was too heavy, so my favorite go-to spot was... More

My wife and I stayed at the Residence Inn in Cosa Messa while attending a wedding. The front desk told us about this place and they were right. We had the Appetizer Sampler a Margarita pizza and a sub. All fantastic. Great decor with old signs and autograph sports pictures.

Great little pizza place in Costa Mesa. The gluten free crust is very good and the toppings range from the expected to the inspired. Decent prices.
