Great pizza, get the A La Baldini! They have many wonderful dishes from sandwiches to pasta and of course, the pizza. Good music playing and friendly staff.

Second time at this really nice, downtown Bloomington, old time corner tavern, Italian restaurant in last 4 years. Was not disappointed on either visit. The best part of this establishment is the atmosphere - kind of like walking back in time. Had dinner on a Tuesday evening around 5pm. Glad we arrived early - crowded when we arrived, full when...

Phenomenal pizza! Atmosphere is really cool in this old building where the giant pizza oven is behind the bar in this long skinny old brick bar. Good beers on tap.

We stopped in for a late dinner on a Sunday evening. We got the Lucca Supreme large pizza and 2 side salads. The pizza is super thin, nice and full of toppings, and DELICIOUS!!

Great thin crust pizza. Aesthetically well you are there for the pizza. Because it is so thin much better in restaurant than carry out or delivery

This is a true tavern in downtown Bloomington. Known for their thin crust pizza but other tasty dishes as well. Different beers for all kinds of tastes but open for the family as well. Can eat in the lower bar area or upstairs dining room. Service is always very attentive.

This place has the best pizza in all of Bloomington/Normal. The cheese they use makes the pie. There is a reason the place is always packed. Try it ypu won't regret it.

This is an old, family owned restaurant. It has bar, but there's a separate dining room upstairs. The stairs are long and steep. We ordered pizza. It has a thin crust without a lot o toppings. There were six people in our party. Four of us thought the pizza had a great flavor, but the other two didn't like it.... More
