They have excellent pizza, but their stuffed pizza is awesome! You may have to wait to little longer to get it because of the prep and cooking time, but it's wrotht he wait! We love it!

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.

Good section of Pizza, and good service. No surprises, salad bar disappointing. several pasta dishes to choose from if you are not a pizza lover, definitely worth a visit

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!!

Well, the place was crowded and very noisy. We ordered the salad bar and pasta with drinks. There was no lettuce in the salad bar, so we had to ask to have some replaced. The waitress was rather rude about it. I know she was busy, but really...... My husband ordered red wine, and it was served ice cold. All... More

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.
