Great deep dish pizza. Get the butter crust. Took some work colleagues from NYC here for dinner and they loved it. The service was also very good. Prompt without feeling rushed.

Got there about 720pm on a Wednesday. I was seated right away, the server greeted me within 5 mins and I had a deep dish within 30mins. It was ok. Kinda bland. Didn’t see a lot of options to customize it. It was really loud...More
