Stopped in here for a quick lunch while doing the New York/Manhattan tourist thing. I usually prefer a thin crust, but this thicker crust was yummy. It wasn't too doughy and it was deliciously fresh. Buying pizza by the slice was a great option for 7 of us. We were each able to get the pizza we wanted without having... More

Food was good. However, used some of the coupons they give you and I got screwed. I think I paid more with the coupons than without them. They forgot to deliver a few things I had ordered, I just forgot about them so our food would at least stay warm. Be sure and check your order when delivered and calculate... More

We tried their pizza and pasta dishes 3 times, the sauce tasted very rich (meat or sausage base) last time we had Sicilian pizza for take out it was horrible, dough was undone (raw) and cheese was too thick didn't have enough time to melt. Never again

The take out pizza is the best in the area, hands down. We order ours thin and extra crispy. And it always arrives that way even in the box.

Pizza was good, well done pie, toppings are a little pricey, the knots are excellent and the sandwiches are a good size

Easily the best pizza in town. Try their Grandma's or Texas Chicken specialty pies, they are both off the charts. Their vodka sauce is better than most fancy Italian restaurants I've been too. The staff and owners are all very friendly and supportive of community and school fundraisers.
