The pizza is overloaded with stuff and greasy. No we didn't expect fine dining but between the instrument of torture chairs and the noise level, it was not a fun place. We had a margherita, which was icky, and another that was so forgettable that...More

I need to say I like my pizza a bit thicker. I want slices I can hold in my hand and are more satisfyingly filling. (Thin-crust pizza is like a thin piece of chocolate to me; I'd prefer having something that really delivers the goods,...More
