Best pizza you’ll find anywhere. Tony is the most caring person to own a restaurant. Every restaurant you go to asks how things are Tony really cares how your experience is we dine couple times a month. It feels like having dinner made by family

Always great pizza but expect to have a wait. Call ahead for pickup as there isn't much room for sitting and wait for pizza to be done.

We ordered a large, 15" pizza and had to bring about 1/3+ home. Our friends also ordered the same size and also had to bring lots home. Of course, we love left-over pizza in our home!
