I don’t know what else to say, it’s a famous pizza place, yes it’s good, was it worth to wait 2 hours for this? I’m not sure.

Known for its infamous pizzas & wait time, we visited on a weekday at odd hours. Got there at 3:30pm on a Friday--walked right up to the order window. Dom's daughter distractedly took our order. We got a table inside, & waited patiently. 15 mins...More
