We came in town for a volleyball tournament. When we arrived we were starving. I had looked up places to eat and this place was highly recommended. We went and had toasted ravioli and pizza. It was sooooo good! We will be back again!

Just good pizza and good people. We have eaten here for years and it's always good. And because it's close to campus it's great for university events.

They are very busy on the weekends. We went last weekend at 5:00 PM and there was a line. I personally know the owner and believe he would make accommodations if you were to call him.
