....restaurants around. Good pizza. $8.95 all you can eat buffet which includes salad and pasta dish. Good deal but most of the dishes taste the same as the same sauce was used for each dish and pizza. One of the best places around.

The pizza and pasta at this restaurant is mouth watering, especially when they put out the buffet. Inside the establishment is homey and a good atmosphere for families, couples, and business meetings. One other aspect that stood out to me is the social responsibility as...More

Never in a million years would I have thought the BEST pizza I've ever eaten would be freshly handmade and served daily in Kentucky. I had the Capone Pizza--it was perfect! My husband had the lasagna--he's still talking about how fresh and meaty it was.

My wife and I had the pizza and pasta buffet with soft drinks for just over $20. The pizza was good, the salad bar is limited but good and desert really hit the spot! Best place in town.

Not a lot of choices in Horse Cave but this place did the trick. They are open late, have good options and low prices. Right in the middle of town you can't miss it. Great sweet tea.
