Ordered 2 pizzas for delivery. Came very hot! Very tasty pizza. Green peppers were excellent, made Italian way! Restaurant could use major facelift but we ate at home. Will order again

We love to get pizza from here. It never disappoints. We usually get a thin crust with cheese. It satisfies every time. Price comparable to other local pizzerias.

We ordered a Margherita pizza and deemed the cheese and ingredients quite delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. The place itself need some updating, however, including a new carpet.
