Over cooked pizza, rude workers that didn't seem to care that the pizza was burnt not much in way added ingredients, such as sausage, onion and peppers. Dirty and dark in the restaurant and the bathroom.

Came here for birthday lunch with family. Ordered the bruschetta to start, came with 4 small crescents of garlic toast, there were 5 of us. When we asked for more bread to go with half of the bruschetta, we were told that would be another $3.50 to a $9.00 small appetizer-ridiculous! The waiter did not know how to handle this... More

Amanda was very attentive to us while we sat at the bar and had our dinner and a few drinks. The bar was busy but we were never forgotten about. The food is always great and their service doesn't disappoint!

We stopped in for a good pizza, and as always it was great. The waitress was also the bar keep but she was very able to keep the several couples that were in eating covered. They have always had good food. And if you go in the afternoon between 2ish and 5 you get 10% off your bill which is... More

My son wanted pizza for his wedding rehearsal dinner. This place was highly recommended to us. We purchased one of their banquet packages. The pizza and salad were very good, however I found the waitress to be curt and very rude. We were told it was all you can eat pizza but the wait staff came by with dish trays... More

This is a fun restaurant. It is comfortable and there is a lot of menu items other than pizza. But my favorite is the cheeseburger pizza. The blend of the cheeses with the hamburger and baco is perfect

Loved their service, pizza, and drinks! My husband is Italian and is very picky when it comes to pizza and he absolutely loved this place! The crust was perfectly thin and the cheese on the pizza was just right (not greasy, not soggy, it did not fall off the pizza)!

Great pizza served fast. Stopped for lunch. Ordered pizza by the slice. The server suggested we order a small pizza as it was past one o'clock and the slices were made at eleven o'clock. The server said that if we had been there earlier say eleven thirty that the slices would be a good choice. We took the advice and... More
