Cute spot downtown. Very tasty pizza, hand tossed crust was cooked to a perfect crispness. Nice sauce with just a touch of garlic, fresh toppings, fresh mushrooms. Very pleasant service, other diners had ordered Italian entrees which looked very good.

We had two pizzas. Cheese and Mamas Supreme. It was exactly what we expected and more. It’s a very busy place but we had good service and conversation. I recommend this place.

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.
