Stopped by this Gainesville gem for lunch while passing through. The pizza was good, I had a pepperoni and a spinach, feta,banana peppers slice with a soda for around ten dollars. This place closes in 2017 so get here while you can.

Been here several times, a favorite spot when in Gainesville. Pizza has always been good, especially the deep dish. Tried just a slice this time and was still pleased. Warm up was just as good.
