This is the best pizza place in Florida. Real Italian margarita pizza with the most amazing sauce ,cheese and crust. Real coal fired oven. Just try it and you too will be hooked. Definitely try the homemade gelato.

Wanted a simple dinner. No appetizers, no side dishes. Just a simple pizza for two for me and my wife. Turns out, one of the best pepperoni pizzas I have had in a long time. Fresh ingredients, amount of pepperoni slices was just right.

Great service and very good pizza. Go early to beat the crowds as limited seating and smaller parking lot. Well worth the trouble.

The pizza here is very good. I had a white pizza with meatballs, My son and daughter-in-law had pepperoni and sausage. My husband had a sandwich. All were very tasty and I would recommend this place.

I went there with a group of 10 in February while in the area for a conference. We had a 15 minute wait, but it was worth every minute. I don't remember if we tried to get reservations. The pizza is AMAZING and the... More
