I had both the shrimp pesto and all veggie pizzas. The toppings for both were really quite good. The crust on the other had was very average.

Maybe it's because I've been spoiled by Chicago style pizza, but I found the pizza at here just average. It was hot, fresh, and ok in taste, but it paled in comparison to what I am use to. On the other hand, the antipasto salad...More
