Lisa's Pizza not only has a wide variety of delicious food, the employees & Tony (most of the times he delivers to us) are always so pleasant and attentive. They have specials - which we had the 2 Pizza Special last night! YUM!

We went there with our camera club and had cheese pizzas, no toppings and it was very good. The service was good too and patient, since we were a whole group. The owner gave us a table in the rear of the restaurant, so I...More
