Great pizza. Friendly. Can be very busy on Friday night when there is a home game. Been a regular since they first opened.

Neighbors recommendation and rhey were right. This restaurant is not fancy (paper plates and plastic utensils) but it is good. I had their chicken parmesan and the chicken was breaded chicken nuggets with wonderful marinara and two wonderful cheeses served in a aluminum bowl. It was served with a side of spaghetti and both were hot and I really enjoyed... More

We had to be in the area and decided to grab a few slices before our appointment. The slices were well topped and large. Two slices were definitely enough for lunch. The two of us ate all we needed for under $15.00. The guys working were very welcoming and friendly to everyone throughout our lunch. I will definitely go back.

The BEST pizza in Gainesville. Perfect crust, the sauce is great and a perfect cheese:sauce ratio. We are only disappointed on Sundays because they are closed:(

great pizza. we prefer thin slice over deep dish yet either way you are sure to get your moneys worth here as its almost impossible to finish two slices. pasta is not as good as pizza though as portion control is off and pasta is over priced for what you get. they would greatly enhance the whole experience if they...

The food is very bland. I could barely taste any garlic or oregano. It was also a little overpriced for the quality. The portions seemed small compared to other places. Overall I did not like this restaurant and I would suggest going somewhere else unless you like bland food.
