Persona in Columbia is a fabulous place to grab some delicious pizza. They stretch the dough ball right in front if you, and then you get to tell them what toppings you would like as you move down the topping line - kind of like...More

Good pizza with a friendly atmosphere. The only draw back is the location. A little hard to find and Blaze Pizza is across the street(same type of restaurant). I would go again. Also, uniformed personnel get a discount.

They have the best gluten free pizza in town. Their place is clean! We eat there regularly, because the food is reasonable and good. My husband enjoys their salads.
