I hesitate giving this gem a great review because I don't want it to get too crowded! The pizza is wonderful with a light, crispy crust that tastes great just on its own. They have an occasional special of spinach and artichoke dip which is to die for! The panini are good, though I wish they'd use focaccia bread instead of Italian bread... only for the neatness of eating it! There is no draft beer available which is too bad, but the food is so good, you won't mind having your beer out of a can, just this once! The staff is very friendly and work hard for their money, as every pizza order requires a run up and down the stairs to the dough supply! Luca is a great find in Victor.

My son and I visited for the second time while in town for a ski trip to Bristol Mountain. Nice intimate atmosphere with no screen distractions. Friendly staff work hard to keep patrons happy, and clear tables quickly for new patrons. Tasty pizza and salad and nice regional craft brew selections (e.g., Southern Tier, Harpoon, and rotating choices posted on the wall). Due to limited space, draft brews not available - not a problem, given all of the nice amenities of this small restaurant.

Charming and quaint place! Waitress Hannah was excellent. Great selection of craft and local beers! And then there was the wings and pizza..... Wasabi teriyaki is great! Parm wings come out with huge slivers of cheese! Pizza was excellent! Would give it 5 stars if only they gave the pizza a little more char. Wood fired oven in the dining room is a great touch also. Will definetly be back.

We love this place. Early on when it was just starting we came here after skiing. Exceptional! So there was today. We hadn't been in at least a year. The pizza was good but not great as it usually is. Something about the dough and crust seemed different. The beer was cold but not iced cold. The staff was uninspired. In the past they were part of the entertaining evening. They were, and this is to me a big restaurant no-no, cleaning to place for closing trying their best to get out while we finished our dinner. I get we were the last folks but not by a lot and we were more than halfway done our dinner. It is the biggest silent, get out now! going. Perhaps the best way to put it is this: if this was our first visit we wouldn't have come back every time we were in Victor. We'll likely be back but now it isn't priority one when we get to town for skiing. A usually exceptional place that had an average to below average turn.

we enjoyed a quiet lunch here today. we ordered a large pizza, cajun wings and a salad to share. the large pizza comes in 8 good sized slices; hot and fresh - very tasty toppings and fresh made and skillfully baked in their wood-fired oven. Salad was plentiful, fresh greens, croutons, shaved cheese with dressings on the side. The bone-on wings with cajun topping were excellent, complete with a side of blue cheese and celery. Note: save some room for dessert - the house specialty, cannoli. A wonderful tasteful end to a great eating experience. Beer & wine available. Menu includes many pasta related goodies. Location is in the village with ample parking. Service was attentive and friendly. They offer take-out service but do not deliver. Nonetheless a great spot for pizza. During summer, out door table service is available. May not be suitable for a large group - best to call ahead to make arrangements.
