We ordered a large cheese & mushroom pizza. It was very good. Crispy hand tossed crust, good ratio of sauce & cheese. Also had an appetizer of mozzarella sticks.

While we enjoyed the pizza, we did not feel like a priority. There were very few customers and they sat us in a tight booth with the sun coming directly in the eyes of two of us. When asked if they had a shade- they did not. When I walked around the dining area there were many better open spots.... More

Greg, We are very sorry that you did not feel like a priority. We greatly value all our customers; whether, they are dining in or taking out. The pizzas are made in the same order that the order is taken, and we do get a lot of take out orders. We apologize for the delay but we're happy to hear... More

Have read quite a number of reviews that are pretty harsh. Maybe what just hit on a good night. We had take-out pizza and felt the pizza crust was nicely cooked (not over or under) and the cheese was thick and tasty. On the needs improvement front, we also ordered a kids penne pasta with butter and maybe they thought... More

Went there with friends last week and it was the worst pizza I have ever had. The restaurant is dark and the food is weak. This restaurant used to have good food and pizza years ago. Don't know what happened but don't waste your time. There are plenty of good Italian restaurants in town.

Just had Sicilian pizza. It sucked. Sauce was boring, no spices whatsoever. Must have opened a can and slapped it on. The crust was burned. We ordered mushrooms and got raw onions instead. Yuk. Waitress - where do I start. Got the wrong beer order to start, didn't bring the soda for our 4th guest, we had to remind her.... More

Haven't been here for a year. Had to review because of the good food we had. All four of us ordered calzone to go. Didn't know what to expect. We called, they said thirty minutes and we went to pick them up. They weren't ready. Waited ten minutes. The cashier didn't ring us up right so we paid twice. With... More

I am a pizza lover, but can't stand the canned mushrooms on this pizza. Expensive and not the good. Only, reason I didn't rate lower is because I only ever had pizza at Monty's. Not planning on going back.

We have been here a couple times and always have the pizza. They make a very good thin crust pizza which is what we prefer. Both time we were lucky enough to have Debbie as our waitress. Service is great - pizza is great. We will be back.
