It's been awhile since I stopped in here for a slice of pizza, much preferring Danny's Pizza on Manatee Ave., but it's on my way home so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm used to the grumpy owner who is always complaining about...something, but I get to-go so it's just annoying but no reason not to get a slice. Today was different, grumpy owner seemed to be missing, the restaurant had no customers (approx. 2PM), and two workers in the kitchen, who looked busy doing something. While I was waiting I looked at the already made by-the-slice pie that I would be getting and it looked terrible- it really didn't look like a pizzeria pizza at all- no browned and bubbled up crispy crust, and a sheet of greasy looking cheese on top of what I assume would be sauce underneath. While waiting, an employee came from the kitchen and immediately started breaking down a cardboard box with a knife while I stood there, no "hello", no "I'll be right with you"- nothing. I turned around and left and will never go back.More

Walked into this place and it was a circus, The cook was in the bathroom for about 45 minutes we thought he died!!! And when he finally came out he was sweating all over the place. We never got our food. Raw meat was being...cut in the same place they were making salad. I almost threw up. The owner should be ashamed of himself.More

To call this "Brooklyn Pizza" is an insult to bRooklyn and the wonderful pizza that is served there. The only saving grace was that serving sizes were huge, but the slices were otherwise completely disappointing with hardly any flavor and inferior grade ingredients. We also...tried the chicken parm sub, and it was simply bizarre with the oddest smelling sauce ever.More

Burnt and undercooked at the same time – yuk! Last Friday night around 7, a gaggle of my wife’s co-workers stopped by, so I picked up an impromptu Italian buffet from the place around the corner. I thought I’d have a beer while the pies...where cooking and let my better half enjoy her pop-up party. I ordered a Stromboli, a Calzone, a Margherita Pizza, a Pizza Supreme, a Veggie Pizza, and a Stella Artois. The Stella was good. I should have known not to order food when I walked into the place and was greeted with gusts of smoke. Oh well, live and learn. Ok yeah, I should have reconsidered when the place remained more or less full of smoke throughout the 45 minute I waited for my food, but I’m a slow learner and like I said, the Stella was good. I get home, spread out 80 dollars of food on the Lanai, thinking I’m a real honey coming through for my baby, and go in to change. By the time I get back to the Lanai, the food has been comprehensively sampled and entirely rejected. No big deal but hours later, same story: not inedible, just nasty. Burnt and totally undercooked. 90% of food thrown away. Won’t go back.More

The chicken cutlet sandwich was like chewing on rubber. They also have no clue about customer service. The pizza dough was terrible.

My wife and I ate there this evening. It was a spur of the moment thing and I selected it on line. The Pizza was the best I've had in Bradenton, and the staff was friendly and you felt like your business was appreciated. We...will return.More

The sauce on the Sicilian was great. However, the crust in the middle was low and flat. It had plenty meat and veggies.

Not one employee had on a mask, one guy was making pizza leaned over it maybe 12 inches from his face, then for whatever reason blew on the pizza. They should be closed down. Of course we left and will never return

Customer service was slow. They were busy loudly discussing orders in front of customers and trying to get them correct. The pizza was cold and unimpressive, like cardboard with cheese and soot on the bottom. The boneless wings at least were cooked but very weird...pasty looking batter. We have eaten here a couple of times and ordered take-out a couple of times. It wasn't bad at first but has steadily gotten worse. Will not be going back.More

We ordered a pizza and had it delivered....came in great time from a courteous driver. The pizza was just the way I like, crust not to thick or thin. Great flavor and toppings were awesome. Everyone has their favorite pizza....this one is now mine!!!

What a disappointment I order first garlic knots and it didn’t even taste like garlic just pure flour . So we order a medium pizza 🍕 it was soggy and not crunchy with bad flavor . All the delivery pizza box where In the floor...next to the garbage with a dirty mop in the front . The cook had long hair without a hairnet . Trust me little caesars pizza are way better . I should of read the reviews before going that’s the last time I go there I’m sick to my stomach 🤢 🤮 ....More

Lou is a personality all on his own, friendly and informative. we had a slice and a tea to check the place out. Best thin crust pizza I have had in our area. He also brought out a meatball in gravy to try out, My...husband said it was superb. As another treat we got a chunk off the lasagna top right out of the oven to savor. I can't wait until he perfects the veggie one, Count me in. If you want to see a real pizza tossed into the air and the whole show, this is the place to go. And 2 drinks and 2 huge slices was under $11. what is not to like. I see the complaints on delivery, they use a service for that so don't blame them, eat in or run down and get it yourself. I have yet to have any hot food delivery from door dash or grub hub. I hope this place sticks around. we will be back for more!More

Ordered online. Was told 25-30 minutes. I called them after 45 to check status - no courtesy call to me- to be told they were busy and it would be another 25-30 minutes. Food arrived soggy and cold well over an hour and a half....Driver blamed the owner. Got compensated with a coupon that had been cut out of a local newspaper. Will NEVER order from them again.More

Nice little restaurant. Had the freshly made lasagna that could feed 2 people easily. It was terrific. The garlic knots that came with it we're excellent, too. Friendly and attentive staff considering that they were busy. Will be back.

I could not find one, either, but they are right down the street from our business, and brought menus to all of the stores in the area. Since they are brand new, I think the menu will come soon.
