This restaurant serves many Italian dishes but the pizza is a MUST. The crust is crispy and flakey, the sauce rich and tangy, the sausage robust with flavor. All combined for the perfect pizza marriage. =) While the ambiance leaves a lot to be desired...More

The food was good, and I thought the price was reasonable. When we walked in, there was a woman on the phone taking orders. So, we stood there and stood there and stood there. She put a customer on hold to answer another call. She...More

Service was right on. I do pick up, so they said about 20 minutes and when I have arrived, the food was ready and hot and packaged very well.

This is a pizza restaurant that has been in business for many years. They have a good product but have not kept up with the times. It is located in an out of the way area on Northeast 14th Street that is not to desirable.

No it is not owned by the Vacco family anymore. The new owner is Susan Freylack. Mike Vacco died in 2010, not sure if that's why or when it was sold. His sister Amy DOES still run the south side store.

Great little family pizza place. Nothing fancy at all. Just good pizza that varies. Our group had various pizza types with some better than others. Specialty pizzza's vary with their spicy sauces. This place is in a strip mall in an older area. Friendly staff.

This place is probably not on the best side of town, as some guy was lurking out back by the trailer park. But we ate here 4 months ago and my boyfriend is still talking about it. We both got medium pizzas and it seemed...More
