I visit this restaurant several times a year, especially through the summer in order to sit on the outside terrace. Over the years, the coal-fired pizza has been consistently excellent. It is thin enough to be a lighter eat, yet I can flavor the dough. The ingredients (meats, veggies, etc.) are always fresh and flavorful. The terrace overlooks an open... More

this pizza and sub stop has great thin crust pizza. Try the special sauce. They also serve a nice small side salad.

I met a colleague here for drinks after work on Friday and had a couple of beers and an order of wings. The wings were very good, sautéed with onions. The bar area was energetic and the servers were very friendly. Will have to come back for dinner with my wife one night.

This is my favorite pizza restaurant in this area. Their signature sauce provides unique tomato flavor with a slight spicy kick which I fall in love with.

As the name suggests they use a coal fire to cook with. We had three pizzas for takeout, Cheese, Pepperoni, and Gluten Free. All pies were of the thin crust variety. First, let me say that the gluten free was not very good. However, we have yet to find a restaurant that has successfully come up with an edible gluten... More

The happy hour was an amazing deal. For about $10 I got a blue moon draft and a 12 inch margarita pizza. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely return!

The food came out quickly and was delicious everything we ordered from pizza to salads to wings to spaghetti and meatballs were great. I would most... More

Pizza was decent but a few missteps as was slightly over cooked and very little cheese. As I don't like a lot of cheese on my pizza as I will tell other places like Pizza Hut to go light on the cheese believe me when I say there was very little cheese. We had the signature sauce which is between... More

I live nearby and this is our favorite place for consistently good pizza and surprisingly great wings. The coal fire gives everything great flavor and you can always get a seat without much of a wait.

We love coming here for happy hour. You have to get there early, especially on a Friday. The bar area is very small, but if you can get a seat it is a great value. The pizzas are 1/2 price then. The pizza is made in a coal oven and has that smokey flavor. I see kids eating there, but... More
