The pizza had a superb crusy and the cheese was equally great. We had an amore pie with a cheese pizza for the kids. For our group of seven none of us went away hungry. The waitress kept the kids drinks full, she asked how the food was, and generally we had a great dining experience. To those who complain about service, this is not fast food nor is it a chain mentality. Good food takes some time and for those who wait good things will arrive.

Let me just say we have eaten in the Branson West location and have used this location for take out before. That said we will NEVER be back here again. We had a 86 year old disabled lady in our party of 5 and they had one table set up for more than 4. When we tried to sit down there we were rudely told that that table was only for a party of six and we were forced to the back of the place with this little old lady's walker and were then told we would have to move here walker out of the way from the table all in a very rude tone by the same lady who then came to take our order.Then we are told they are out of fountain drinks! It just was a terrible experience and our kids saw their grandmother treated so poorly. So we will be eating Hook and Ladder pizza when we are wanting pizza next time. Real shame because the pizza is good.

The only reason I gave them a two, the pizza was good. However, customer service was terrible!! Do not go in with a party of five or more and expect to sit together! Staff was rude! Horrible customer service! My guess, they rely heavily on tourist traffic, not local repeat customers.

I used to get off of work later at night and all the good restaurants would be closed, but on the weekend I would stop by and they were opened late. Good, hot, fresh italian favorites and pizza made by people who know what they are doing!

We were on a long road trip for a special school field trip. This was the first sign we saw headed into Branson and decided to stop. It is a tiny place but the food was outstanding. Many of us ordered sandwiches while the kids ordered pizza. The bread is made fresh daily and you could really tell. Wish this was closer to home. Will definitely visit again when in the area.
