Nice little authentic Italian place. You watch them make the dough in front of you. They throw it up in the air and spin it. (You can see where some of it hit the ceiling!) The pizza had a great garlicky taste. Tomato soup and fried ravioli was great as well.
Our only complaint was man it was cold in there!
Street parking/parallel parking. Pay to park as well.

We each ordered a different pizza and all thought they were bland and frozen pizza-like. Also had one order wrong and pizza came out when everyone was almost done, and not comped.

After a long day at the beach, decided to go for dinner and came across this place. With no recommendations, stepped into this place and absolutely enjoyed the food. Great pizzas and delicious sea food dishes. Later, when I recommended a few of my friends to go there, they said it's one of their favorite in Galveston and had already tried and tested. So there you go!

I've been visiting this restaurant for many years. Prior to Hurricane Ike in September 2008, they were located on Bolivar Peninsula. It was the best on the peninsula. They reopened about 4 years ago but this time in Galveston. It is owned by locals and they take pride in making the best pizza on the island. There can be long waits on the weekends because it is so popular and reasonably priced. BUT, don't let that scare you off. Wait outside or at the wine bar next door and get ready for the best pizza you have ever had. You can also get take out but I recommend eating in the restaurant when it comes right out of the oven.

We love pizza and this was the best we have had to date. We were there Saturday at 6. They were super busy so we had a 30 minute wait. Well worth it. So plan your time for a likely wait time. We will be back.
We had the supreme mmmm
