“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Too expensive for what it is. They are not gourmet pizzas, food tastes packaged & loaded with preservatives. Would only go back for a drink, the can't change the taste of that.

“Solid”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

So the guy who runs this place has clearly dedicated years of his life to making it the solid predictable good place to get fed. It probably helps that he hires servers who look good in black. Oh ya, that is a given. I go in there and think, whoa, lot on the menu and then I get my usual pizza. Stickin with a good thing.

“Guess it's hit or miss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Didn't read the reviews before going here, Guess I was lucky, got good service and the food wasn't bad. I even got Airmiles. The venue was clean and nicely setup.

“Thin crust pizza ...mmmmm.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I really like eating here. However I am becoming lactose intolerant - which eliminates most of the menu. If you want pizza or pasta - you are in the right place.

“The food was just so bland”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

After seeing the fantastic looking menu I was really looking forward to the spaghetti that was featured in the menu with photo. Wow what a shock nothing close to the photo. I could have overcooked the pasta myself and put ragu sauce on it at home but for the $17 or so it was so bland. The meat balls were not good tasted like they had just been heated in the mico wave. My son had ribs that were about half gristle and tasteless. $85 for the three of us was way over the top for such low quality food. Big portions of bland do not make it good it was almost uneatable except we were starved from a day up on the hill. Jim you see so nice on TV this is not the quality I thought it would be. Nice looking place but looks only go so far.
