pizza is a sweet stuffed crust, deep dish style with very high sides to the outer crust. we had
1/2 cheese & half pepperoni. very good and filling. this is your pizza if you like tons of
mozzarella cheese & not a crunchy crust person, you will like. there is hardly any bottom crust
to pie. I had my meal w/family & they are thin crunchy crust people. They enjoyed this unique
pie because it was different & thanked me for suggesting we went here. there are coupons everywhere for a free cheesy bread appetizer. everyone loved this an i think they were filled up by the time the pizza arrived. as all other reviews noted, be prepared to wait 35-45 min for your pie to cook......call 20 min ahead & that will give you time to have a drink & appetizer. the atmosphere & decor of restaurant is casual/family style w/checkered floor tables & booths

We were all tired of "Disney" and the heat so this place was a great reprieve. There was actually not line up, tables not crowded together, no screaming children, good AC and good service.

I think with the food it depends on what you order and what you are used to do. The stuffed pizza was far too rich(too much cheese) and although it tasted good going down a few hours later was a different story.

The wings were good but were not cooked in the sauce. This is the second time in Orlando we have got wings like that so maybe that is standard.

The Greek salad was good except that the core of the salad was not excluded. Just a detail overlooked in making a good salad. Our daughter did not like the sauce on the pasta dish.

The server warned us against ordered a larger pizza and he was so right. That counted for a lot that he did not go with making a bigger sale. We also did not need a full dinner salad and pasta dish. The pizza even though they say 3-4 is enough to serve 5 especially if you order an appetizer.

We would give this place a second try as the service was good and the prices reasonable. Next time we order a thin crust for 3-4 people and an appetizer.

The best part was getting out of the craziness of Disney.

If you like deep dish pizza then you will love this pizza. Best pizza but be sure to call ahead so you don't have to wait or try dining in. The wings are good too!

Gotta go for the pizza pie. Great meal and service here from Carlos!! Pizza pie is amazing, but beware it takes 45mins to make, but worth the wait. Huge portions and good value.

It was the first time that my family has savored Chicago style pizza, and it was an all around true pleasure for everyone. The service was on the spot...a bit heavy on the napkins, napkins, but everything was just right. Yes, there is a wait for the pizza; it takes 45 minutes to start and bake, so enjoy the great appetizer selection and be patient. It is worth the wait!!
