The atmosphere on the upper balcony was awesome. We dined with a mix of collegiates and city visitors. Such a pleasure! The creole pasta was superb. Penne pasta drenched with creamy creole sauce.

Stopped here before leaving town. The pizza was very good and the staff was polite and friendly. The food arrived quickly after ordering. Was very pleased.

We visit our son at Ole Miss and have dined at most restaurants in town. Until today, we've tried the local favorite of the kids and haven't been impressed. The food was fantastic, the pizza is the best in town

Portions are large, service is fast, and food is consistently good here. Save room for the tiramisu!

More than a typical pizza place; in addition to a wide choice of pizzas, you can find sandwiches, pastas, and salads. If you like spicy, I especially recommend the Siciilan with its threesome of Italian meats and spicy peppers.The staff is always friendly and efficient, make you feel right at home, and the prices are right. Recommended.

This used to be a favorite but food and service has been a disappointment in last year. Prices are average but expectations are below standard They used to have a great bread as an appetizer but in last visits had reason why it wasn't available. I suspect they are cutting cost at expense of quality. Only advice I recommend is... More

We went for pizza -which was good. Several non-standard options including roasted vegetables with balsamic drizzle. We had that and were pleased with it. You can also "build" your own. There are also many non-pizza options. We ordered cocktails and were given the option of trying the owner's "homemade" organic vodka. Slightly more per drink, but it's a nice, smooth... More

I ordered an individual sized pizza with ham and pineapple. The pizza was not done and the dough tasted like off the grocery shelf pita bread. The sauce was average. Any chain pizza would taste better. This was the only entree ordered. The other selections available may be better.
