This is a very warm and inviting little restaurant with one of the best pizzas that I have ever tasted. I have tried a lot of pizzas and this one definitely ranks top on my list of favorite pizza places. It is a Neapolitan style pizza. The crust is so perfectly thin, crispy and fluffy. The sauce, cheese, and toppings... More

What a nice surprise. The pizza is on a thin type crust with great crunchy.flavor but not tough. Tons of great toppings in addition to great looking salads and sandwiches. The build your own pizza can easily be shared. Enjoy!

We were there on Sunday and took out of town guests. Had the "Old Louisville" and it was outstanding. Hungry now just thinking about it. Only wish it was a larger place. It's our favorite pizza in Louisville.

Visited this place while in town for business. It was so good, we went back in the same week. Wish I lived close enough to drive to it all the time. Usually don't eat pizza crust but it was so good, I ended up eating it there. So delicious!

The staff was nice and dressed for success. They were quick with refills and the pizza was delicious. My wife and I had the Butchertown pizza and it was great. Highly recommended.

We have been searching for good pizza on Louisville and this is my favorite so far! My husband and I decided to split a medium cheese pizza and it was great! I love the crust. It's not too thick and was just crispy enough. The staff was friendly and the other food I saw people getting looked great! The only... More

Arrived with a party of four. We were seated almost as an afterthought. Waitress was snarky to say the least. Seemed like the wait staff was unmotivated and unsupervised. Not at all what I would call a memorable dining experience.

Couldn't find the middletown location, so I thought I would leave a review with he Frankfort Ave location. The pizza is very very good. Especially if you like thin crust, fire baked pizza. The normal size is 12" and would feed 2 adults or 1 hungry teenager. Although they can make regular pizzas, they have a variety of local favorites... More
