“Pretty good pizza”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

First time at this location-previously had been at the 4th Street location. Arrived just before 6 on a Tues. night and by just after 6 it was full with people waiting even when we left at almost 7:30. The variety of thin crust pizza offered is good and interesting with the choice of white or red sauces. Service was slower than we had expected- the pizza cooks very quickly in the extra hot oven but we waited awhile for our order to be made. This location was full of families with kids of every age - lots of high chairs available -so definitely caters to the demographics of the area.

“Good food”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

Good tasty food. Over priced for what you get tho. Would go back only with a coupon or discount. Don't like the way the ordering is done if they expect a tip

“Im Impressed..Prego!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

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.

“Delicious pizza!”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

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.

“Good place to eat, prices are $ if don't have a coupon”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

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.
