Loved this pizza! Coal oven crust is thin and amazing. The fresh sauce, mozzarella and basil are fantastic! Best pizza ever!

We went for lunch a couple weeks ago, and it was good. Solid service, pizza was hot and tasty. Nothing blew us away or was particularly unique or amazing, but I would eat here again if I'm in town and craving Italian.
