We waited for this place to slow down after opening not that long ago. It seems that they have their rhythm and menu items figured out pretty well. The Pizza was pretty darn goo. Neapolitan pizza (thin crust originating from Naples Italy) is hit or miss in Calgary and these folks HIT it. A very simple sauce allows you to taste all the great quality toppings, don't get me wrong the sauce is simple but perfectly done. The desserts are unique and very good. I recommend the Dolche' and Banana as a share dessert. The Service, Cleanliness and atmosphere were great and the food was better than great. Not quite New York pie but pretty close, Good Job.

The pizzas here are very tasty. They are freshly made and the combinations are delicious. Even a pizza that doesn't sound good, like the Thai pizza, came out really delicious. I think the Italian cheese they use makes the difference? We've tried about half of the varieties available and like all of them! If you go on a Tuesday, you can also buy cinema tickets at $6 each, as long as you buy at least one pizza.

They offer lots of discounts to this place, so make sure you get one. Food tastes good. You need to go up to the front to order your food and the waitress takes your drink order after. Different type of setup.
