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...More

This is not the best place for a business meeting but what a great place for fun. You may have to sit at a table with unknown new friends but that’s part of the atmosphere. Sit wherever you want in the small restaurant. You’ll find...More
