Great atmosphere lots of parking because it is located at the Mayflower Mall. Service was great, we had warm little loaves of bread while we waited for our snacks. Very clean staff very friendly. Great for large groups. Easy access for older folks.

The win-win combination of excellent pizza and service makes this an excellent place to eat. The server was very attentive. The food was also promptly served. I wish they had one of these in my town.
