Yes this place is small. We were lucky to get a seat. The honey hot habanero wings are very hot. The margarita pizza was excellent. Highly recommend this place and waiting for a seat if necessary.

There is only one thing not to like: it's too small, and every time we go there we beg them to expand. The truth is for every time we're lucky enough to get a table, there are 3 times we don't and end up going somewhere else. And many people we know just treat it as a takeout place. And... More

Didn't know what to do for dinner and this was close to the hotel. It's primarily a take-out joint, but the had a small counter and a few tables. If you have the time eat there. the counter-staff really seem to enjoy working there and they are very nice. I can't imagine making the pizzas though, it was hoping the... More

As a pizza snob, I am always looking for a local place that is similar to a favorite haunt in D.C. This place is similar, with tight quarters, friendly staff, and wood fired pizza.

This place is A Gem !!! Probably the best pizza around the place is very small and busy with take outs but we like to seat by the small bar and have a beer with the pizza.

We always do take out, due to limited seating. Their combinations are very tasy and not heavy and gooey. My husband loves the stuffed peppers for lunch.

We live nearby and this is our favorite place for takeout pizza. The restaurant itself is very small so we've never been tempted to eat there. But their pizza is soooo good it would be worth trying the place if you live too far for takeout.
