“Great pizza, poor service”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The pizza was great, especially the White Pizza. One exception was the Lemon Chicken pizza...yuck! Lemon does not belong anywhere near a pizza, in my humble opinion.

Others in my party enjoyed cheese pizza and a meatball calzone. The calzone seems to be the size of a large pizza folded over.....huge! And he loved it!

For service, we ordered at a counter and they called us when ready. It seems almost impossible to mess this scenario up, but it was as if one guy was just so bothered that we (more specifically just me) were there ordering. No help whatsoever for those who had never been there before. None. This seemed in stark contrast to the family-type atmosphere. Maybe it was just this one guy, this one day, who knows, but it really put a damper on my evening and experience.
