My family went here for dinner last night based on a suggestion from a neighbor. The neighbor touted the pizza as the best ever. Since I'm from New York and have always held NY pizza as the gold standard I had to try it. I have eaten pizza all over the world and will tell you this pizza is really... More

The pizza was big and of high quality. The service was great we had a waiter named Gavin and he was attentive and knew his products. We had a long train pass overhead and it was noisy but also funny. Along with the pizza we had an order of wings and I loved the sauce. A great place for a... More

The train came overhead while we were eating. Rather un-nerving as it shook the building a little. No way, I'd eat outside under/near the track. Forget the train, it's a very, very noisy restaurant, people having to shout across the table to one another. Our server Travarse did a good job of handling 20 people in our group. All orders...

Average pizza, better beer list. Atmosphere was decent and family friendly. Could use some updating, carpet, tile and such look worn. Would try somewhere else before going back, but wasn't horrible. Wife did love the burger.

Resturant is located under the old C&O Railroad Viaduct and a short walk from the famous Triple Track railroad crossing. Ordered a medium cheese pizza ($10.95) with Pepperoni ($3.50) and Mushrooms ($3.25). Total $17.70 plus tax. Pizza was very good and large enough for two people. Limited parking on the street. A pay parking lot is located across the street.

We were in Richmond for an event during the Fourth of July week and visited this restaurant on the 4th for dinner. We were greeted by the hostesses right away upon walking in and seated in a booth which was nice. Our server was great as he was super busy but always took care of our needs. I saw our... More

We were a party of 7 and they took care of us. We walked to bottoms up from our hotel. It was a bit sketchy of a walk plus the heavy metal club across the street was awkward, But once inside, they took care of us. Great Service, great selection and great food. We left very happy!

Visiting from out of town, we went with two young kids during the early dinner hour. The waiter was very friendly and helpful, and helped us decide on the meat master. Many interesting choices of pizza for those more daring. We were impressed and it was great. We all left very full and would come back again.

I went here years ago and it was awesome. It's always scary telling someone how great a place use to be, getting excited to go back years later only to have them fail. I'm happy to say they were great! The food was awesome, our waiter was funny and made it extra fun for us since he seemed more like... More
