Always friendly, always buzzing, always good pizza! This is really authentic Italian-style pizza, not loaded with fake cheese, but carefully topped with the freshest and best ingredients.

Great atmosphere, great pizza, good beer selection, and in a good location in Inglewood. What more do you need?

This is a really trendy, funky place with atmosphere and vibe. Besides that it has great staff, really good service and super pizzas and wine. What more do you want.

I had never heard about this place until my stepmom mentioned that she wanted to go there. We went for lunch on Thursday November 17th. As you approach the building, you will see shops on the ground level. You enter a door between both shops and make your way up the stairs. Once we got to the top, we were... More

This was a takeout order and I must say this was one of the best thin crust / authentic Italian pizzas I have ever had. I ordered the Hutch with extra garlic and it was incredible. The extra garlic made a great pizza even better. I will definitely return again and perhaps dine in next time.

The pizza is fantastic, the service was fast and excellent. The atmosphere was fun - love the quirky movies playing on the wall. Highly recommend!

I was excited to try this place as its reviews online were stellar. The restaurant itself is cool, with nice decor and good music. I don't think it's accessible for those with mobility issues though, which was surprising. The pizza took quite a long time to come, and other tables seemed to get theirs before us (who ordered after us).... More

Really enjoyed getting out of the core to a diamond in the rough like Without Papers. Rough around the edges but in a good way. The pizza was innovative and delicious. Great vibe a bit unique for Calgary. Well worth a visit.

4 pizzas, 3 salads, 3 bottles of wine and 2 desserts. A fantastic night with friends,family. Pizza crust is chewy and on the thin side. Toppings are delicious and flavourful. They were out of the Caesar salad which I enjoy but we had a couple of beet salads and a Greek salad. All were ok but nothing special. The wine... More

Went here with friends to celebrate birthday, pizza was okay, not bad, but tasted better pizza elsewhere. Service was quite good and great atmosphere.
