Excellent taste, price and service. Both the Ricca (goat cheese, spinach, pesto, olives, cheese and sauce) and the Canadese (pepperoni, bacon, mushrooms) were amazing. The crust is perfect, and toppings are generous, as is the size of the pizza itself. We had plenty of leftover...More

This downtown restaurant clearly stands out from what I had seen thus far. Upon arrival, it was clear that this was a popular place to eat. Not only it was a challenge to find parking (few spots by the restaurant, free parking on the street...More
