Service was excellent and the family really enjoyed the pizza and cheesecake. The kids were also given pizza dough to play with while waiting for the food. Great food and atmosphere!

We went to a pizza restaurant to learn that they had everything but pizzas!... and, as per the hostess, that happens every day from 4 to 5 pm to clean the oven!... Incredible!...

Although I wasn't impressed with the pizza as I am a native Chicagoan , I was impressed with the service and the friendly nature of their host and servers. The prices were moderate. It just wasn't a "Tex-Mex" taste the we were searching for which is not the restaurants fault. The pizza we got was good but not distinctive. We... More

We arrived with a party of 12 after an Ice Rays game about 30 minutes prior to closing and the food and service was still great. My margherita pizza was delicious and our entire group was pleased with their order. Tyler our waiter was very attentive. The staff was very accommodating even though I know it was late. The price...

More spacious than the one near Dallas, TX. But I wasn't impressed w my Quattro pizza (my husband loved it - it's the gonzola cheese I don't like). Over all good visit, great waitress, and the manager checked on us.

I would like to thank Marty and all her staff on 12/17/2016. Our city was dealing with the worst water situation ever and I was trying to do a small party there. We had to change days and Marty and the hostesses and our server Jesse helped us so much. So polite and considerate. The pizzas and salads were great... More

Wine list is decent with a very nice custom blend from Italy! Lovely. Anyway if you are visiting or a local this is a great pizza place and seems... More

If you are choosy and critical on your pizza to be Italian authentic, this place does it right. Consistency is the norm here on how the thin true hand-tossed pizza comes to your table. High-temp brick oven bakes these just like they should be and the toppings are even and not over-quantity which makes a pizza soggy and a fail.... More
