This pizza was fresh, delicious and packed all the time. It is in the heart of the 2 Marriott property lodges so there are lots of people all the time. The pasta was very good also. Fresh ingredients along with indoor or outdoor seating plus live music makes this place a must to stop by. Good for all ages.

We come here almost every time we visit South Lake Tahoe. Love the service - mostly friendly young people - and the food is great. This is located very close to the Heavenly Gondola and is quite popular.

They have music outside year-round, which is hit or miss as to quality. Fun entertainment, though, no matter what. In the winter I've seen heat lamps and basketball games on in the outside area, too - although I've never been brave enough to sit outside in the winter.

They have a bar and a variety of table arrangements so you can bring different sized groups. They also have a lot more food than pizza (pasta, for one) and a wide beer selection as well as a kids menu.

They don't take reservations, though, so be prepared to wait (it's worth it) if you come at a busy time.

We ate here for dinner & had to wait about an hour to get, no big deal, we weren't in a hurry. Pizza was very good, waitress was friendly. We would eat here again.
