Owner Peter is enthusiastic and creative. The food is to die for. It's a BYOB but luckily the beverage store is next door! We go there whenever we are in that area and we ask friends to deliver to us when they come visit.

This is a brick oven pizza joint with many selections and you can even creat your own. Delicious. The young man that made our pizza was great. He let us watch and answered all our questions. I would recommend this pizza place to anyone that loves pizza.

Off the beaten path but worth the drive. Watch the pizza master Peter, grill while you wait. Service with a smile. Friendly staff. Try the garlic sticks ~ they are amazing! The pizza was great!

We shared the Old School Margherita Pie & Garlic Sticks. BOTH were great. This place wood fires the pizza in a very HOT oven and Peter is a master at... More

Building looks run down. Pizza was ok a little burnt. Staff was friendly and takes really good care of you. Just not the wow factor I was hoping for.

We stopped by after tubing the Rainbow river and had a delicious lunch!! From the outside, you might be hesitant, but give this place a try. The salad and pizzas were very good- we'll be back!! Support a locally owned business.
