This place has some ridiculous pizza! I usually don't like a thick crust pizza but this crust is so good you have to love it. No thin crust here! A definite must try. So good that when we decided we were taking a road trip...More

We had the dominequor pizza. It was delicious and the crust was great, however; service was very slow and the waitress was texting by the bathroom at least twice that I saw.

We've been here twice. The food is very good but the servers are not that great. Waited over 10 minutes just to get our order taken on our last visit. No apologies and it wasn't even busy. Lackadaisical service = not the best tip.

Any place brazen enough to take the name Sam & Ella (salmonella) must be pretty good, and the pizza did not disappoint. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We came hungry and left full up.

This is a must do restaurant for any pizza lover. The cooks spin the dough old school and it’s a site to see. The appetizers are NOT to be skipped. Make sure you order the artitoast and enjoy. Not in the mood for a pizza,...More

Nice sit down restaurant. Visited twice in the month, convenient walking distance from NSU. Wait can be a little long when they get busy though so don’t go if you are in a rush. Have had their chicken sub, spinach pizza and artichoke dip, all...More
