We have been searching for good pizza on Louisville and this is my favorite so far! My husband and I decided to split a medium cheese pizza and it was great! I love the crust. It's not too thick and was just crispy enough. The staff was friendly and the other food I saw people getting looked great! The only... More

Arrived with a party of four. We were seated almost as an afterthought. Waitress was snarky to say the least. Seemed like the wait staff was unmotivated and unsupervised. Not at all what I would call a memorable dining experience.

Couldn't find the middletown location, so I thought I would leave a review with he Frankfort Ave location. The pizza is very very good. Especially if you like thin crust, fire baked pizza. The normal size is 12" and would feed 2 adults or 1 hungry teenager. Although they can make regular pizzas, they have a variety of local favorites... More

The service was amazing. We ordered a de structured capresse appetizer and the toast points that should of come with it, did not. We decided to eat it without the toast points. It was fantastic. We had about 2 bites left and a waiter noted we did not get the toast points. He said I am going to get you... More

It's just pizza, made to order. But, there are so many pizza places in town this is priced too high! If I wanted to spend 70.00 for three people I would get steak! Tables are so crowded the staff even bumps into you as they walk by.

Went for a business lunch with 15 of my colleagues. We all got the lunch special which is a personal size pizza and choice of soup or house salad for $9.50. The pizza menu has about 15 different choices each named for an area of Louisville. I ordered the Brownsboro which is a pepperoni and fresh mozzarella pizza but there... More

This pizza is very good. Probably not the best in Louisville, though. I'd take Wick's or Pappalino's first. But the service here was quite good, and the atmosphere was really nice. Not too pricey. An overall great dining experience. I'd return for sure.

My girl and I went here once not too long after they opened and we were pretty impressed. The pizza is pretty good and appetizers were okay. The beer selection is pretty weak though. I need to go back a few times before I can really judge this place so I need to be honest and say that I do... More

This was literally one of the best pizzas I have ever eaten. My husband and I went here before our date to a Broadway show for Beauty and the Beast. This was the perfect choice for the evening! Our waitress was very nice and helpful. The pizza was so delicious and had so much flavor. He ordered a soup, and... More
