Our server was horrible. So rushed. Didn't have a chance to read the menue. It wasn't even busy. Took my plastic dish before I even finished. Pizza was just okay. Never return.

We ordered to large pizzas a white pie and a meat lovers pie. Both were delicious and the crust was so delicious!

Fantastic! Service was great and the food was the best. A gem in the middle of punta gorda. This part of the year was refreshing to not be the only patrons in the establishment. 30+ years in business was obvious!More
