The pizza was wonderful and a good size. The waitress was very attentive and was very quick. The bread they brought out prior to the meal was so good. I will be going back.

This is my go to place. Now that it has new owners I was concerned things would change but THANKFULLY things are status quo as usual. The food, the weight staff, the Chef (Shout out Chef Luigi) Jacks Penne and Capri chicken are my favorite!
