We visit the area once a year and this is always a stop for us. We find the food very good as well as the service. We usually have pizza and wings. The atmosphere is very nice with multiple large tv screens to watch your favorite sporting event.

Ate here with the family. In short, pizza was not good. The inner 2/3 part of the crust was like wet toast. This was after my initial request for crispy and the manager prepared the second himself. They did provide a free salad while waiting for the second pizza. The salad was very good.

The mistake, I believe, they are making when preparing is the toppings are too distributed into the center. When we got the pizza, the outer 1/3 was bare and that portion of the crust was crisp. Toppings should be put more on the outside with the center bare since during cooking, the toppings will naturally flow toward the center. This allows the center crust to get crisp and not end up an I edible soggy mess.

In the end, will not return.

We have been to this restaurant once before-tonight we had the dinner special of chick parm pasta salad and bread- waited 5-8 minutes- no problem it was valentines day- service was ok despite server had 5 tables max and kitchen is a step away- didn't get silverware or salad plates- had to ask hostess- server didn't clear plates when main dish came- not sure but seemed to be subpar since the last visit - server became nice as my bf brought it to her attention about duh silverware and clearing the table- chicken was ok - almost on the dry side- only spaghetti no angel hair or any alternate(odd for an italian restaurant) salads are good -dressings are good - bread was dry and cold- not impressed and probably will not return - had a groupon but still not worth the trouble maby owner or mgmt changed - sauce didn't have flavor - saw many ordering pizza - saw the cook put fluid on coals and got abig whiff of fumes- shame nice location, nice place but food seemed average if that - price average and service could be much better- they do have an extensive wine list :)

Very similar to other coal-fired pizza restaurants around town but more expensive and the pizza's are small. Tried it once and never returned. If you are visiting Ikea and feel like some coal-fired pizza, it is located in the plaza right outside.
