We came here on a hot day for lunch and were very pleased. The slices of pizza were large and delicious! The waitress was very nice and service was fast. We ended with Gelato which was a real treat.

Aside from being late on the delivery ( which they made up for by offering cheesy bread ), this was probably one of the best pizza's had in a long while. The sauce was the key to the success ( where as some other pizza places skimp on the sauce - they went at it like it was Italy based... More

The best pizza in the Twin Cities! Fantastic gelato too. I have never ordered anything but pizza and gelato. One piece of pizza is definitely enough!

We have been going here for about 10 years. They have great pizza and a nice atmosphere. In the summer they set out tables outside. They also make their own Gelato.

This is a fun place to go for Italian food! My husband and I really enjoyed the ambiance and the waiter that we had. Pizza was what brought us in and we were not disappointed! They make what I would refer to as a "classic pizza" with a medium crust (not thin, not thick). It was loaded with ingredients (we... More
