This used to be my favorite pizza place. Then they changed the Italian Sausage from a ground sausage, which was awesome, to a sliced sausage that, per my observation, most people picked off their pizza. I don't go there anymore.

Food was wonderful and the dessert exquisite! Don't let the dated decor stop you from enjoying the great food. We had the sausage and peppers, chicken Marsala, tiramisu and chocolate lasagna. Would definitely come again!
