Went here with the daughter and are meal was fine. She got pizza which she did enjoy. I got the chicken parmesan and it was okay. It was a little over cooked and dry. The ceasar salad was good. Our waitress was friendly and efficient.

By far the best pizza I’ve ever had. I love the different sauce varieties and getting to customize what toppings you want. Their salads are also very good and they have great happy hour specials

I arrived early and was amazed at how packed the place was. They put our name on the list and called us in the promised time. Then we waited. And waited. And waited. People who were seated after us were served before us. We waited...More

This location has been here a while so tonight we tried it finally. We were seated promptly. The atmosphere is very casual. Wine glasses and carafe were very dirty. Great view of the pizza oven. We ordered the Calamari and Caprese salad for a appetizer....More

Good New York style pizza, the best in the county. The this crust is nicely charred. If you like cafeteria style or thick crust pizza, this isn’t for you. Selection of sizes are available. Way better than the big chains.
