Our group of 10 very much enjoyed eating a wide range of foods, from pizza to sandwiches. These are unique foods not found in many pizzerias or fast food restaurants. Gluten free foods available. Order at counter and food is delivered to your table.

Yes, the pizza is wonderful: me, I'd get the amazing stallion, a carnivore's delight. But don't miss out on amazing sandwiches like the goombah, some amazing lasagna. Evdn the side salads are tremedous. Caring, talented crew.

Good gluten-free pizza. Fresh toppings. Nice atmosphere. I prefer the downtown location better next to Orange Leaf. Dessert convenience for families.
