With all the hype about how awesome their pizza is, quite frankly I was disappointed. I love thin crust, but this was so bland - like saltine crackers. And the toppings were good, but not enough of them for how much you pay - $2 added per topping. The sauce was ok, but again bland. Service was quick and friendly.... More

I only ate here because of all the great reviews I saw here. There were a lot of negative reviews on Facebook I should have listened to them. The crust almost taste like a cracker, and the sauce is one of the oddest I have ever tasted. Maybe some people have different taste, and that's fine. They seem very popular,... More

Great pizza for those who enjoy thin crust! Many selections to choose from and also served the U.P. classic cudighi. Love the addition of the outdoor patio for the summer.

The best place to meet up with friends and run into so many friendly faces. When you're in the mood to see people, this is where you can go.

Stopped here on tripadvisor recommendation and we were not disappointed. The pizza was great and the service was outstanding. They have a "wall of fame" for local high school sports, which was fun to look at while waiting. Worth a stop!

Our waitress was very friendly and checked on us often to ensure we were doing good. Cold Beer and fantastic cudighi! Sat outside on the patio cause there was a band playing across the street at Old Ish for the Thursday Summer Concert Series.

Different style of pizza. Super thin crust like a crispy cracker. Felt full when finished but not overly full from to much bread.

I always try to eat here when I'm in town. It has been around forever, but their pizzas stay the same. I love the cracker thin crust and oh my god, the cudighi. Servers are always pleasant. This place is a childhood staple for me that will never ever grow old.

Small place, been there forever so it's more of a nostalgic thing for most locally. Pizzas are thin, almost cardboardish, but not the worst.
