Been there several times because of convenient location. Not going any more though. Had a bad experience there last time. Hardly ever any other customers. Food is simply "just OK" and there are so many other places in Dewey that are great experiences.

Really enjoyed the food. Everyone ordered something different and each dish was hot, and delicious. Was odd as it was pretty empty but the food was really good. Would go again and recommend

This is a very forgettable Pizza Joint. It would probably be worth a stop if they used better ingredients for toppings and sauce. Basically just made a better Pizza. Typical beach town mentality to just feed the drunks that can't taste good and just want...More

Maybe the pizza is better, but the pasta, meatballs, and veal dishes were average at best. The sauces tasted like they were made from canned ingredients. Nothing like authentic Italian food. Very disappointing considering the high reviews.

Came out of the bars around Midnight with a craving for pizza, and this place fit the bill. Love having slices that are cooked twice, makes the crust nice and crispy.

Little pizzeria downtown Dewey. Good service, friendly. Pizza was OK at best. Pretty empty when we went. Wouldn't go again.

Pizza was good and hot. Sauce kind of spicy. Pricy if you ask me. $22 for a large 2 topping pizza. Ordered over phone and picked up.

This place has expanded so many people must like it. I only ate pizza there. The dough tasted like nothing, and on top of it was hardly any pizza sauce or cheese. It was the worst pizza ever. I would never eat there again.
