We called in as we were getting hungry & it was there quite honestly. The guy was friendly & chatty, although like most Americans thought we were Australian, when we're English. I thought it was quite expensive for two slices of pizza & a soda,...More

As a New Yorker living in CA, I always look for authentic NY pizza. This place does NOT disappoint. Wish we had eaten Thanksgiving here as our Thanksgiving meal was horrible down the street! Anyway, so yummy! Wish we lived closer.
