Fantastic pizzas, outstanding calzones (the one with pepperonni is great). Also try the desserts in particular the tiramisu! Each time we go there we like it!

I so wanted to like this place, as its close to where I used to live. However, on the two occasions I've been, the service was lacklustre, and the pizza disappointed. For a specialty pizza place, you really need to get the sauce right. You...More

The pizza is delicious. Toppings and cheese are fresh. The service is mediocre, but it's barely noticeable because the food is so good.More
