Pizza is amazing! Cheeses, sauce, and crust are on point! Their bruchetta was full of flavor with fresh tomatoes. Staff are genuinely friendly and aim to please. Seating outside and insode available. Great lunch specials.

Truly surprised by good reviews. The pizza was so salty, the sauce lacked flavor, bad crust. Really greasy.

This is a go-to spot for a slice and a soda for lunch. Delicious crust with fresh toppings. Sometimes a slight line but the pizza comes out pretty quickly. The salads are decent for a pizza shop and the cheesesteak is great.
