The place looks like it needs to be bulldozed. The windows are all rotten with black mold. They have rags soaking up the water. The waiter took forever. Food was ok but not great for the price. I would not recommend this place at all....More

First time visit. Friendly staff and server. Helpful with food selection. Very good thin crust pizza - plenty for the three of us. We would recommend to friends.

I have had Pizza all over the United States and this was a poor pizza, I don't know what they used for cheese but it was bad. The service was poor as well. Could not wait to get out of this place

Delicious Italian food right on the parkway. We had a window seat and absolutely yummy food with garlic knots to die for. Our waitress was wonderful and we will be back.
