Haven't been here in years and decided to give it a try. The pizza was awful. Not cooked on the bottom, tasted like frozen. The Calimari had no flavor. We were so disappointed. There are so many great places in the area, shocked this is...More

If you like thin crust pizza, this is your place. The coal makes for a nice, rustic crust. Their fire sauce is spicy and tasty.
