This place is crowded and loud with very bland food. We ordered three pizzas and veal parmesan. It was edible but definitely not delicious. the waiter provided bare minimum service.

The Greek salad was above average. The pizza was good. The wait staff was very good. If you are in the mood for pizza and a good salad in a nice atmosphere this is a good place.

To be clear, we enjoyed this and will probably come back every chance we get. The service could have been a little more attentive, but the food was amazing. My kiddos loved watching the dough tosses. Come early to avoid the rush.

After some consideration and digesting, the Mama Meaty Pizza has been awarded spot #1 on my ‘top 5 favorite pizzas of all time’ list. As someone that eats pizza on a regular basis, that’s saying a lot. The crust was crispy but not tough, I...More

Can't answer, I don't drive 45 miles one way to eat pizza. Supposed to be very good. That what it was when the place started on Bolivar. I eat pasta which is outstanding.
