“Real italian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Went there twice. They special made us chicken parmiaggano not on the menu. The pizza is great if you like thin crust. Very nice, service is a bit slow when busy because the owner is the only server but the food was worth it.

“Great little place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

So we stopped in here for dinner while watching it monsoon outside! The owner was so friendly and endured my pathetic attempt at Spanish. The food was outstanding. 2 large mushroom pizzas for 4 adults and 1 order of spaghetti split between my 11 and 8 year old and we left full and extremely happy. I will definitely go back this week. And I would recommend it to anyone! One word of note they do not open until 5 pm.

“Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

This is a much cheaper option than Villa Italia. Still relatively expensive though. Four ate without alcohol ( I dont think they serve it) for 50 dollars.
