Pizza is good but the staff who provide takeout don't care unless you are a regular. I was told 30 minutes for pickup, arrived at 35 minutes, was told it would "just be a few" and waited another 20 minutes while the bar staff quickly...More

Not sure! Their menu is very simple and we have only one veggie option, so I have not really focused so minutely.
