These guys do pizza right. No ands/ifs/buts just go! Sit upstairs if you want more privacy. You can do a bit of people watching downstairs but the noise level is high. If you have the kids get there before 5:15 to get good seating.

I'm always looking for the ultimate gluten free pizza. I usually feel taken advantage of by the extra fees that are added on, but one day I'll find a good pizza that's reasonably priced. This one was not it. The pizza was very good but...More

Came here and almost did the norm- however I decided to try something out of the box. Wow! Pizza can be just that- pizza. However, try a custom made creation and be prepared to be blown away.
