We have tried this place several times before heading to the Lions games and are always pleased with the food, the service and atmosphere! Pizza is absolutely amazing and the salads are really good as well!

Great food and lots of it! Our family ordered several entrees and all received rave reviews! Service was above average and food came quickly. If you are in Greektown at lunch time, eat here!

Used TripAdvisor to find this place and very happy that we did. We thoroughly enjoyed the deep dish pizza. Parking was typical of a downtown area...little tough to find. Server was great about recommending events in the area and giving inside on traffic.

Food was average at best. I preordered a group of 40 by 8 hours and the food was still super late, servo e sucked, management were unresponsive and they jacked up our whole order and billing. There is definitely better food to be had in...More
