We moved to Fort Erie a couple of years ago and have been ordering their takeout pizza ever since we first tried it. When I first saw the pizza box claiming to have the best pizza, I thought, sure! But it is delicious and always consistently good.

All the food is homemade and wonderful. They make their own pizza dough and all noodles. It is busy most of the time. They have great service, good food and wonderful ambiance.

Don't let the exterior fool you. The food, service and atmosphere was great. We were in a rush so asked the server to be quick and we were not disappointed. The food was really good. The inside is really cool with different lamp shades over each table. I wish I lived closer to this restaurant as I would love to... More

Walked in and thought in was in the old Mothers Pizzeria back in the 70's- 80's. The great waitress suggested the special, large pizza and 20 wings. 20 minutes later total bliss was in front of my wife and I. Pizza and Wings 5☆

This family-style restaurant has been in business for decades and for good reason. They serve the best pizza I've ever had and their breaded wings are very good as well. The food is consistently good and fairly priced. Their homemade tomato sauce is so good so the baked lasagna just happens to be one of my favourites, although I've tried... More
