“Great Pizza!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

This was my first time at John's new location across the street from the old little place. I was very impressed with the décor. Spacious, clean....loved the fountain in the side room. Lots of seating and windows. The pizza was delicious. The Hand Tossed crust offered just enough bread....not too thin or thick. I thought the sauce was very tasty.
Much better than one of the regular delivery type places. I will remember that the taste was worth the visit. I'll be back!

“Awesome pizza!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

John' expanded and moved across the street a couple years back and continues to have great pizza. Support this great little local place by getting a pepporoni pizza once a year, you will not be disappointed! Yes it is a little greasy but it is so good!

“Delicious pizza!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Great little cafe! Had the Hog in the Bog pizza without mushroom and it was AMAZING! Also had a chocolate malt that was pretty good too. Cute little atmosphere. Loved the room with the fountain with the little rubber ducks on top!

“Awful customer service”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We used to like the place, but tonight we ordered a pizza for pickup. We ordered the same thing we always do, got home and they'd screwed it up. My wife called them back and said "hey, this isn't what we ordered". The person on the phone said "oh yes it is." After arguing a bit, she told them "I know what I ordered" and they said "You're wrong". If you HAVE to go here, make sure they repeat your order back to you. And check the pie before you bring it home. Crappy service.

“Scratch Kitchen, Passionate Owner, No Food From a Bucket here!!”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Bottom line, GREAT FOOD. You will not be disappointed. Everything is made from scratch onsite by the longtime owner, his wife and their very capable staff - from the pizza dough, to the excellent sauces for pizza and pasta to the bread. You can really tasted the difference. One vote of confidence you may see while there are police squad cars lined up outside to pick up lunches and dinners. This is a wonderful, old fashioned, family own, pizza and Italian food joint. No frills except for the food and the huge flat screen TV hung on the wall of the dining area. Oh, I've checked out their recently added breakfast menu too... try their home made Italian sausage with your eggs - it will put spring in your step for the whole day.
