Came here in hopes to get the experience of having a meal from the Legend of John Conte. The meal did not disappoint! There was about a 45 minute wait for our food due to Conte cooking up one ticket at a time. However, the...More

growing up on NY/NJ style pizza, I consider myself a pizza snob! Well, this place hit the mark for sure! Who knew you could find REAL pizza this far away from the city?! Fantastically delicious with no pretense, paper plates & plastic utensils, but that...More
