Best pizza outside of Brooklyn. Dawn's garlic knots are a MUST, and anything you order will be well wort it! Kenny and Dawn are wonderful, and keep a traditional pizzeria traditional and authentic!

Excellent pizzas, we just came from New York and this is the real thing. The chef is an artist and the combinations are really good and exciting. This is a must for anyone who makes or eats pizza.
