Absolutely no relation to real pizza. Grumpy guy making the pies that night. We had our pizza delivered as there is little parking and one of us ran in to place the order. But the order was wrong--no mushrooms. On a 14" pie there were 6 pepperoni slices. Seriously. Probably one tablespoon of sauce. $25.00. The slices flopped downward when picked up and the toppings, what there were, fell off onto the floor! The oil/grease. Oily/greasy.. And they had salted it! Life is too short to eat this awful pizza. Try elsewhere.

How would you know it was a grumpy old guy if you say that you ordered delivery that makes no sense

Nothing fancy, basically your pizza restaurant that serves subs and entrees as well. Good portions, fair prices. Food is very tasty as well. Conveniently located in St. Armand's Circle. Good for take out as well.

Ordered cheesy bread and pizza for pick up. Took about 25 minutes but they were super attentive when we arrived and took care of us quickly.

The pizza was good but we loved the cheesy bread. Will definitely be back.

We ordered a plain pizza. The pie was very flavorful. It could have been crispier. Coming from NY, I'm pretty critical. Overall, it wasn't as bad as others have reported.

Place is very dirty. Pizza was terrible-no taste, like eating cardboard! Pizza was burnt on the bottom also. House salad was ok.
This place should close up-- never anyone eating at it that we see. (except us one time- ha)
