“Pizza with flies”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

When I went to pick up my pizza I noticed the kitchen screen door doesn't shut properly. Then at the counter I saw how dirty the kitchen was, dirty shelves and floor, and numerous flies. I left.

“Authentic Italian Food”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

This location has had the same ownership since it opened in 1987. The family is from Sicily. The food is very good, you can tell it's authentic. The menu is extensive for such a small place. Fairly fast service too considering everything is homemade and cooked to order. You can't go wrong with a Works pizza!

“Used to be good”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This place was great before they switch ownership. The food sucks now. Very sad. There's also an Italia Pizza in Santee and that one sucks ever worse since the new owners bought it.

“Best Pizza East of San Diego”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Being from the East Coast I guess we have a different view of what Pizza should be...
BUt if you are looking for a nice and gooey cheese and great flavored pizza with a very good crust this is your place!
Trust me this place is not fancy - you can eat-in or get take-out for a good price.
Staff is always helpful even at the busiest of times.
On a regular basis we will order pizza for lunch for the office and it creates an instant crowd in the kitchen.
