Honestly, it's the best pizza ever. It's bigger than me 🐷. The place is small but it's clean and the employees are nice.

This was a short stop on the way to our cruise ship adventure. Our husbands had the pizza and said it was the best they had all trip long. When we were returning to NYC, they just wanted to go back for more pizza!

Went for an 18" but couldn't finish it, better quality pizza than a number of others. Serviettes, plates and forks provided with takeaway which was helpful. Selection of sandwiches, wraps and salads or could buy individual slices of pizza which were also huge
