I have eaten this pizza for years and it was always great, pricey but I believe in quailty / cost etc.. Im not sure what is going on anymore. The last 4 times I have ordered delivery With "light" toppings the middle of the pizza was like a big bowl of soup. They did honor me with a free pizza... More

I love this place, the pizza is all made right in front of you as is the case in traditional pizza joints, from the flinging of the dough all the way to the baking, the quality is one you can taste. The only downside is the price, but if you want quality, you should pay for it, absolutely recommend!

On the expensive side except during lunch. IF you are lucky to find slices of pepperoni or cheese waiting on the heating tray they are an excellent value.. The pepperoni slice has at least a half pound on it and priced under $5.00

While in Portland for business I gave this place a try and found myself sadly disappointed. I placed a delivery order and was told 45 minutes to an hour - which is fine, I am used to that from most places. When it had been an hour and twenty minutes I called them back and was told that they guy... More

So many sizes and toppings there's something for everyone! Delivery or take out, no dine in. Delivery gets pricey because there is a surcharge that doesn't count as part of the tip - so, you could end up spending an extra $10 so you don't have to go out. I always just pick up to avoid the extra cost. I... More

I can't speak for the subs but the pizza here is ex+, as it has been for years. Not cheap by New England standards but worth it in the end. Buyer should inquire ahead as to what toppings are fresh/canned (we are talking Maine) but the crust is thin and the sauce is tasty and the toppings are plentiful.
