We first thought this was going to be a German restaurant from the online menu. We were disappointed to see only wings and pizza once we arrived. Hot wings were terribly hot. Waitress did warn us but they were still much worse than expected. Cheese sticks were acceptable. Avoid if you want a German dinner but fine if you only... More

It has lots of charm -- it's looked the same for many years. The pizza is unique to this restaurant and excellent -- very popular among the locals. Very casual dining. Drawback could be that there is only on-street parking.

Bellefonte has way more than it's share of Italian/Pizza places. This one is by far the best. It' been a local favorite for as long as I can remember. Their pizza is from a wood fired oven and comes with good portions of fresh toppings. Our favorite is the pepperoni which is hand cut hunks as opposed to the perfect... More

Yes the pizza is great. And I love their wing sauce, too. But I find their prices to be way too high. Service is also very hit or miss.

I suppose I have been coming here for 50 years or more so I guess I can call myself a regular. My wife and I come here almost every Saturday with friends after church. The menu doesn't change and the food is good and you can have the "World Famous Pizza" wings, sandwiches and salads. Lots of friendly people and... More

This is easily the best pizza in Centre County. I love the thin, crunchy crust that's darker on the bottom- it makes the pizza special. They don't go light on toppings, either (as so many places seem to). The pizza is served piping hot, but it's equally good as a cold breakfast the next day- if you can stay away... More

This could be described on the tiny side of pubs, but it is always busy. A staple of Bellefonte, its been around forever. Has THE BEST pizza around Centre county hands down. Always good. Good sandwiches as well. My pick for pizza anytime. Highly recommended!
