Three of us went for pizza expecting something exceptional after reading Tripadvisor. Ordered 1/2 and 1/2--one with chicken and the other with sausage and pepperoni. Very edible but quite ordinary. I'm no Italian expert but the pizza didn't taste like what we'd had in Italy. Maybe pasta is more Italian-- we didn't try that. It's self service; appears they do a lot of take out.

I love the pizza sauce, so good! Very much Italian. The place is a traditional pizza place, cool pictures and wall decor. Again BEST PIZZA EVER!!!

This is a terrific place for tasty pizza just north of the VA Hospital on San Pedro. Four of us shared a great pepperoni and mushroom pizza, one of the best we ever tasted. Very casual, self serve setting. Parking on the large lot in front.

Discovered this place by chance and found great pizza. Thin crust, melted cheese that kinda makes the pizza hard to eat by hand until it cools down - exactly like pizza I had in small towns in Northern Italy. In fact, due to this consistency all the Italians I saw started off eating their pizzas with a knife and fork and then if so inclined switched to using their hands. Oh, and the green chile topping was great. Only problem is the pizza is in an obscure and not so great part of town.

After twenty years of living in the southwest (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico) I have finally found a pizza just like back home! Thin crust, hot cheese that just slides off but not too greasy. Sprinkle with hot pepper and devour! These guys are from Brooklyn and this is the real deal. No more unresolved cravings! They sell by the slice as well. Oh, and they serve homemade cannolis for dessert.
