We enjoyed our Spicy Piglet pizza which was well seasoned, but sparsely populated by sauteed onions and bacon, and I could detect no trace of pickled jalapeno. Nonetheless, they offer Parmesan and red pepper flake shakers at each table, and that got us by. (Get the mid-sized pizza even for two -- you get twice as much pizza for just $5 more, and then have lovely leftovers.) The problem with larger pizzas (everywhere, it seems) is that the kitchens leave an inch of unadorned if sauced crust around the perimeter of the pie.

We sat outside under a ceiling. The ventilation was good, but so was the road noise.

Still, the place makes a good crust and a fairly good sauce. You can do much worse in Helen, GA.

A meet-up with family members was so memorable and pleasant due to the ministrations of Christina. Wish we'd tried out the pizza but we all got sammies. Given the choice between the meatball parm/chicken Parm...Go meatball all the way! All of us agreed that the sauce was a bit different. The tomatoes used in the sauce are fire-roasted and it is not a taste we are used to. All in all, a grand night was had by all. Bring your family and ask for Christina's section. Accommodating, kind, funny, helpful and happy to help you enjoy a good dining experience. Thanks for making us all feel so at home.

Every time we take a trip to Helen, Ga, we make sure to find time to eat at this place. The pizza we ordered was huge for a family of 5 so we even had some to take home to eat. Each time we eat here its great and will continue to eat here each time we come to Helen, Ga.

Pizza was good and huge sandwiches. Glad to see they used local venders. Waited a very long time for pizza to be ready. Waiter seemed very busy while other waitresses and waiters were more attentive.
