This place is very small, and we sat at the largest table in the center of the room. There were other booths and tables in the place. There was a small place that has games to entertain the kids, so my kids were there, and found something to do while waiting. The pizza was wonderful. The lasagna was good. The... More

Loved this place. I had the sausage ravioli with marinara....best ravioli because the marinara was outstanding! Others with me had the fried chicken and pizza and said their food was excellent as well. Great, friendly service, nice looking place.

Ordered an 8" individual Taco Pizza. Good quality Crust, abundant toppings and prompt service. It's nice to be able to have pizza when travelling for work solo!

My partner and I order delivery or carryout from here at least twice a month, and dine in probably once a month. The homemade soups are always delicious, and the Chicken Bacon Garlic Alfredo Pizza is amazing. My personal favorite is the Shredded Beef Sandwich - homemade french bread, minced onion and poblano peppers, provolone or mozz cheese, it's mouth... More

Best Pizza in town!! Locally owned. One of my personal favorites. I'm trying to think of my favorite but I've never had a bad one. The garlic bread is also outstanding. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. Cheers.
