Garlic Knots, YES. Pizza, YES. Service, YES!!! You can not get much better then this place for Pizza, Knots and Service. I did not have a Stromboli but we did eat here 3 times in 14 days and to be honest we could have eaten here once a day the entire time. So ONO!!!

Read the reviews and drove an hour RT to satisfy my pizza craving. This pizza is outstanding. Had a New Yorker and Primavera with added pepperoni. Extensive pictorial representation of menu on internet helped us make good choices.Fresh, quality ingredients. Service friendly and welcoming.

I'm really tough on pizza and sorry to say this place just didn't make the cut when it comes to good pizza.

Casual but comfy, friendly hosts, cold beer and great pizza. Pies are hand tossed in front of you, great portions of toppings, and baked oh... More

Found this little gem by looking on google maps. I'm not sure we would've known about it otherwise. Very small place in a tucked away warehouse area. We had the garlic knots, which we fabulous!!!

We ate here earlier in the week and it was wonderful. Excellent service and great food. We planned our day today to stop here on our way out of town.

This was my 4th time here and the service and food is consistent. Fast service, especially if you are limited on time, and pizza dough is awesome. Guys in the kitchen welcomes you and waves good-bye, so that says alot for a customer to be recognized and feel appreciated.
