omg, this pizza was the best EVER! I have never had pizza like it in my life. I guess I will just have to start trying to reverse engineer the recipes in my kitchen, since they closed this store about 2 months ago. :-(

Went there today, and had a delicious Roma sandwich for $7.95 (great option for vegetarians): sliced Roma tomatoes, organic basil, minced garlic, balsamic vinaigrette, parmesan, provolone, and lettuce on grilled bread.

They have excellent pizzas here and very good food over all. Yes the prices are little higher but you are paying for quality. Atmosphere is a little confusing you need to go to the counter to order, not clear when you walk in. Love their...More
