This place had really good pizza! We ordered an extra large pizza for a family of four, and ended up leaving with nearly half a pizza. The atmosphere was fun and they have gelato available for dessert. We will definitely go here again.

We made the mistake of preordering our pizza. When we arrived and paid, it was delivered to our table in perhaps ten minutes. Unfortunately, that ten minutes must have been spent in a broiler. The crust was charred and the Canadian bacon was very shriveled....More

We went last week and they are not up to date. The pizza we ordered was actually $5 more than what is listed. We would have paid what we did, even if was printed on here correctly. But a $5 discrepancy should be updated ....

No deep dish, just Italian style crust- very good. The pizzas are topped with plenty of fresh ingredients. Parking is limited (FYI).
