By far the best pizza I ever had, anywhere, anytime. We dined in and enjoyed our pizza right out of the oven hot and fresh. The crust is incredible.

I walked past this place in the morning on my way to a bakery down the street, and decided to give it a try for dinner. I'm glad I did! They were very busy, but the staff didn't let that rattle them; everyone was very...More

The staff was friendly and helpful. Our pizza was flavorful and cooked well. The dining room had an eclectic vibe to it with a small deck overlooking the water also being an option. Nice little place for lunch.

They have a neat but very small deck overlooking the canal. The pizza was OK but nothing to get excited about. We couldn't get garlic bread because they were out of it.

Inside of the restaurant was a little iffy looking. Brought back some flashbacks of the 60s and 70s for sure. Things didn't exactly look clean and modern. The pizza itself tasted pretty good (BBQ Chicken). Better than anything you would get from a chain place...More

We were advised to try their pizza. Yuk! Both overdone and under done crust. Toppings were ok. That's the best I can say. How do you spell bad Pizza? Chef Boyardee out of the box is better.

Cool place for pizza. Order at the counter and when it's done they bring it to your table. Very friendly staff with good food and prices. Old but unique. Pictures of past patrons all over the walls and any other place they can put them.
