What more could you ask for, but pizza in a renovated/converted church. The pizza was great. The building has stained glass walls and a ceiling that looks like a eight slice pizza. The service was very attentive and added to the experience.

Great location to theaters. Loud, robust atmosphere, pretty darn good pies! Coal ovens make it fast. Really fun to watch them make the pies too. I would go back in a heart beat.

Great pizza, fair pricing. $30 pizza and sodas for two. No free refills though. Older building, but nice old school pizzaria ambiance.

This was a totally unplanned visit after viewing the line at Shake Shack across the street. I was in between shows and the timing was perfect. A simple and unadorned cheese pizza was out of this world. Could have consumed it all but I exercised...More

Sorry about the late answer but yes. They wait was up to 2 hours when we went on a Friday. Get there before 5 and you should be good to go!
