We have always had delicious meals and the staff has been outstanding each time my wife and I have been there. We would recommend this eatery to all.

Cute little bistro in historic downtown area. Brick walls and tin ceiling add to the charm. We ordered a gyro and lapamcun wrap as well as dolma to start. The food was flavorful and unpretentious. Highly recommend fora tasty meal.

Quaint, small, friendly, great service . Pricing reasonable. Pizza was very good. We ordered sausage, mushrooms, and onions. For our taste, the crust was a little thick ( we really prefer pretty thin) and the sausage wasn’t the chunk or ground up style - it...was shaved and just a bit different. Great place . Fun. Deli counter up front serves desserts and cheeses.More

I was in a hurry and wanted a single slice of pizza. "Specialty" pizza was all that was available. It was pepperoni and capicola. $5.48...are...you...kidding...me?

We were traveling from Knoxville to Nashville, and craving some pizza for lunch. World food had all 5 star reviews. But we were skeptical, until our first bit! Without a doubt best hand tossed pizza we ever had!!! Worth the drive from the interstate

Great find thanks to Trip Advisor. An outstanding experience for some clean food after a quick hike at Burgess Falls. Greek Salad was outstanding with freshest greens, feta, red onions, and olives. Pizza slices were perfect, just enough crispy on the bottom, but held up...to the fold. Toppings were great from vegetables to meatballs. Brussels Sprouts were amazing without adding sweet or sugary glaze. Even better than my wife’s (her comment not mine). Check out the rest of the menu. We will be back to try more soon. Definitely recommend. Service was tremendous and welcoming.More

Found this place online and it had great reviews - but that doesn't always mean the food really is good. Around here it seems good reviews are based on volume of food for a cheap price and not the quality of what is served. This...restaurant is truly worthy of the great reviews. The food was EXCELLENT. The flavors popped, the greens were fresh and washed, the hot food was actually hot... and the service is exceptional. We both had greek, me the Kefta and my son the Gyro. More than enough food in the portion to fill you and the food has great flavor with quality ingredients. I'd MUCH rather have smaller portions of good quality food that giant piles of mediocre fare that seems to be the norm in Tennessee. We will be back, this place is reasonably priced and delicious!More

Very busy place which is normal for a college town. Everyone was ordering pizza but we went with muffulettas and corned beef. Very good food. Not much room for sitting so be prepared to order to go or sit outside.

Walked in hungry after hiking nearby and ordered pizza by the slice. The slices were large. I enjoyed the veggie pizza and shared some of their delicious special cheese pizza. Not much seating inside but it looked like they did a lot of carry out...business. You can buy canned drinks.More

Excellent. I was a little dubious of all the five star reviews, but now I get it. Excellent muffaletta, especially great bread. Tabouli was perfect. And the cannoli was the best I’ve ever had in my life. Everything so fresh. It’s all about the food!

Excellent service and food. We ordered when we walked in and then sat down and they brought it out to us. I had a slice of pepperoni pizza and my family all had deli sandwiches. All very good. The service was excellent. Very local home...town feel.More

Always have trouble finding a good place to eat in Cookeville....came across this gem on Trip Advisor. The best pizza I have had since leaving NY a year ago. Flavorful with a nice, crunchy crust. Hubby loved the meatball sub. Staff are friendly and accommodating....Can't wait to go again. If you go around lunch time, get there BEFORE noon as it gets really busy and there is limited seating. Free parking out front.More

My wife and I visited around 2 PM on a weekday. The three or so tables were all taken, and 4-5 folks sitting on benches in the front, waiting for a seat? waiting for their take-out order? Got a menu from off of the front...counter, by negotiating around someone paying their bill, stood at the counter/dessert case for a minute reading the menu. At no point were we greeted or even acknowledged by either of the workers behind the counter. We walked out without speaking to anyone, or anyone speaking to us. Their food must be REALLY great if they can afford to treat potential customers this way.More

Okay so I just tried this place for the first time. I have had pizza all over the country. This might be the best pizza I’ve had anywhere. It is literally that good. Outstanding! Also please try the coffee soda.
