“Come here for the pizza”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Very good Italian style, thin crust pizza. Small seating area, not amenable to large groups (i.e. the soccer team), although they have an outdoor patio that could accommodate bigger groups. A go-to place for pizza.

“Above-Average Pizza”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Depending on who the pizza chef is on any particular night, one can get a very good pizza or a mediocre one. This place is popular in the town, and if the sports leagues are in for the night, the wait is unreasonable.

“The pizza is good, but there are equals out there.”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

The place is small. Not really sure if there's a wait staff. But there's a tip jar?? You order at the counter and then if there's a seat you take one. Then you get your own beverage and plasticware and napkins. Salad is iceberg and some fixins.
Franco's down the road is just as good and a little more attentive and the place is much more cozy.
