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.

Being Italian from Chicago, a good pizza has been hard to find since living in Florida for many years. It took vacationing from Sarasota in Dunellon at Rainbow River to discover the "BEST Pizza" I've had in years! This place rocks with fresh tasty ingredients on their veggie pie. Try it! It will leave you wanting more!!
