This place was recommended by our hotel front desk and I am glad we took her advice. Great homemade pizza, great atmosphere, a little cramped on space but it was okay. Service was great and easy walking distance to The Strand or the Cruise Terminal.

Busy and full restaurant on a rainy Tuesday in the summer. Lots of delicious options for pizza. My three teens each ordered a small and could have split a small altogether. Great location for locals and visitors alike.
