Everything my family had, had alot of flavor. The food was hot and fresh and the staff was nice. The portion sizes were big and the price was reasonable.

We went to have pizza at FL after a great amount of anticipation. I had been here earlier to have gelato, which is superb. The place was inviting and I was determined to go there to have pizza. If the dessert is that good, the pizza would be promising too. It wasn't. The pizza comes in different sizes depending on... More

After driving by for many years, we finally planned to go. We went late on a Saturday afternoon and got a table right away. Small but cute place. Staff was very attentive. The pizza was very good, except I like the crust crispier. Next time I would just order a slice so I could try some more items.

Came here because of good reviews and was not disappointed. Ordered that Fats and Carne pizza. Was very good and saucy. This is a small old school type pizzeria with a cozy little atmosphere. My son enjoyed the gelato which was also very good.

We tried this place because of an MPR recommendation. Ordered the Fat Supreme and we were very disappointed. So much dough! The balance of the ingredients was all off. Eating it felt like a total gut bomb! I felt sort of ill afterwards. I would order from Domino's over going back here.

My husband and I used to get pizza from here years ago when we lived in the neighborhood. While in the area on business we decided to go back. Cozy and quaint seating. Always busy. Great local beer selections and a good enough wine list. We had a medium fats special pizza. It was delicious and we had enough left... More

While visiting family in MSP, we always order pizza from here because it's good and its in walking distance. Our most recent order was on the evening of 12/10/16 and as usual, the pizza was great. We ordered a large with half chicken/pineapple and half pepperoni/mushroom. It was delicious. I'm attaching a picture of half eaten pizza because we dug... More

Haven't been here for awhile and forgot how good the pizza is. We got there early evening on a Friday and there was a waiting line when we left. Meat crazy pizza and garlic bread twist. Yum.
