Ask for Beth! Great personality and fast! We love the Margaritas pizza magnifecent. The house salad is delicious and perfect ice tea. Save your appetite for their special torte. Nothing like it!

A favorite with locals for brick-oven pizza, they have a decent selection of pizzas. The salad portions are enormous; one could easily split a half-order with another person. Service is usually fast and courteous. Ambience is ok, but it's a little loud during dinner most...More
