I love the eggplant pizza, wonderful taste. Crunchy thin crust, moist cheese and eggplant. This place has no decor, you can sit in or out. I like the terrace under the awning.

The pizza is outstanding.There are several varieties. You may select different slices for carry out or order a whole pizza for eating in or take out. The crust is thin and crispy even when reheating at home.

Good place for a quick lunch. Large selection of pizza by the piece with little waiting. Also all the traditional quick lunches-calzones etc. You can also call ahead and pick up a whole pizza with convenient parking right in front.
