We arrived and were told that the wait would be 30-45 minutes, and it ended up being only about 10-20 minutes. The appetizers were a bit rushed and ended up being just okay, but the pizza was absolutely amazing. So much so that I am...More

I had the green chili chicken pizza, and it was wonderful. Very spicy, which is unusual for green chilis. The family had spaghetti, and enjoyed it, as always.

Fast delivery right to the hotel door. Pizza was loaded with toppings but very little cheese. Did not care for herbs shaken on the top.
