There's a reason this place has been voted as the best pizza in Winnipeg for years. The pizza crust is kind of sweet so you know they add some sugar to the mix. The sauce is not overly spicy and the topping and cheese are fairly generous. It obviously appeals to a broad audience. It is not for the person searching for a "gourmet" pizza or some local favorite like Tony's which is topped with sauce over the cheese. It's just way better than Domino's or PizzaHut.
Having said that, it's not cheap. Anytime a medium pizza is over $20 (meat lovers) it better be good. A glass of wine is $6.75 and taxes, so come with lots of cash.
Relax and don't be in a hurry because this place is very busy, especially on game nights, so don't expect to get in and out quickly.

PS. Order the calamari, it's very well done and the sauce has some kick.

We've been twice since the rooftop patio opened. Both times the service was poor and very unprofessional (it's not a great start when you first arrive and the staff upstairs are openly complaining to one another about their customers). Food is decent. Patio has a nice atmosphere. But we won't be coming back for quite some time.

A big restaurant with booths lining the periphery of the room. A good thing because the booths give some privacy. The menu is both Italian and Greek and the food is predictable with either country. Lots of young waitresses with very short skirts that seem to need yanking to keep them down. Whatever happened to uniforms but maybe that is the new uniform. Service is very efficient even when the place is packed. I can recommend the calimare, it was lightly crumbed and tender, good soup and pizzas are also very good.

Nothing special, nothing extremely bad, nothing extremely good, very large portion, very slow service, many staff members looking lost around the kitchen area, a cafeteria style italian decor...a family restaurant for people with teen agers...they should not be hungry on their way out. It was also the only restaurant during our whole week stay that did not allow tip from the TPV machine base on $ or %...you only have % options, which all includes taxes before their % calculation. The food...so ordinary, I don't think it is worth talking about. But someone could say, it fills you up...

Love the new look. The staff and food excellent. Lots of parking in both front and back. We were there during the lunch hour and the food came out in plenty of time.
