Quick stop for an espresso pick me up. They use Lavatto, which I like because it's a rich & deep flavor without being too bitter. I didn't try the pizza but it looked great.

We were out driving around and re-visiting old haunts on Memorial Day and decided to have a look around Downtown Orlando. We were reminded of how pleasant the area is and also of the fact that parking is not always easy - although to be fair there are several parking garages. We needed a drink and sandwich and so, spotting... More

The food is not too salty, not greasy- just right. Affordable too. They serve real Italian cappuccino- tastes the same as in Italy. Excellent pizza and gyros. My favorite place in town.

We were a party of 5 celebrating an engagement of two close friends. We went to the Tiki Bar around the corner and decided to stop here for pizza after drinks. That was the worst decision we could've made. Our appetizers of Fries and Mozzarella Cheese and Jalapeño poppers were a sign of things to come. The fries were over... More

They have limited space. At lunch time, it becomes crowded, and you will have to look to find a place to sit. It is a downtown favorite for take-out lunch. This restaurant offers individual pizza slices, meatball sandwiches or calzones. Pizza is of great taste. We were visiting lake Eola and spotted this place. Service was good, and price reasonable.

We were in Orlando for a wedding and stopped at the lake/park before driving home. It was Small Business Saturday so we looked for a local place to eat brunch in the area. I was in the mood for breakfast items, which this restaurant doesn't feature. However, I ordered a coffee with skim milk to support small business. The server... More

Found this on trip-advisor and was not let down! The pizza was great. The staff was super friendly and the atmosphere was cozy. Also after you eat all that pizza the park is a must see. Take a nice walk around and walk off your meal. Will come back!

The pizza is very good. Thin crispy crust and good quality ingredients make it very yummy. I'm always surprised when it's not busy. Then again when I went yesterday it was one of the hottest days of the year and if you're looking for ambiance you'd want to sit outside so that probably explains it. It's always good food and...
