Great rich pizza sauce. A family style Italian cuisine restaurant. Casual dining. Carry out is good as well. Probably the best stuffed pizza I've ever had. We like to eat here often and think about eating there every time we drive by. Delivery available.

If you're craving Chicago style deep dish, this is pretty close! Good sauce and served hot. I recommend ordering ahead for dine in since it takes 40-45 min. Service was great too!!

I ate here with my son and tried the two large pizza special. The service was good and the pizza was excellent! They have other items on the menu, but we went for the pizza.

This is my husbands favorite place to go every Saturday night. Always orders the Canadian Bacon and pineapple. I prefer the deep crust pizza but his choice is just as good.

Don't ask for meatballs (even though they are always on the menu) because they never have them.

This place is run by the sweetest couple and their family. They have a salad bar and wine by the bottle. They have hands down the best spaghetti pizza I have ever had!!!
