A Pizza and a glass of wine is all I need. Old World Pizza that taste better than it looks but it looks better than many you will find. A really nice place.

Pizza was really good. $5 for a super large slice of pepperoni pizza. We got it to go, but the inside environment was nice and we would have enjoyed dining in.

Service was average- but thought the pizza was above average. Good crust and fairly fast. Kids had kids pasta and it was good size portion and pretty tasty. We were looking for dinner after we got to town and wanted to try a local pizza shop. We were not disappointed.

We went on a Sunday night in January and it was mayhem. Waitress had no clue what to do. She said she was new. Really bad food and the very worst part was a filthy ladies' room.

We were hoping for a cozy, comfort food experience; similar to a New York pizza restaurant we went to in NYC. The on line pictures seemed similar but the atmosphere was actually bright vs cozy. Our pizza was good but for some reason the beer on draft was not working. Our experience was pleasant and the staff was friendly.

So service might be a bit slow only because they are that busy, but the flavor and awesome personality of the staff (April) makes up for the wait.
