Researched brick oven pizza before a drive to Atlanta from Cleveland and came across this place. We are glad we did! Super friendly staff and it easily competes with some of the best pizza I’ve had. Between the six of us, we had a pepperoni,...More

We really enjoyed the pizza here...fresh ingredients, crispy crust, tasty sauce...delivered to the table HOT! The restaurant is run efficiently, and the wait for food was not bad at all. Drinks were refreshed often, and atmosphere is pleasant. Recommended highly!!

The pizza here is very good - with a delicious sauce and fresh toppings. The crust is not super thin - just right. We had the Rocky Balboa and the Graziano. The beer selection is interesting and the servers are very attentive.

My wife and I had read very good reviews so we were anxious to try this Pizzeria. We shared the Barbed Wire 12" pie, which was enough for the two of us. It was good, but we didn't think it was anything special. We have...More

The Roni roll and the white pizza are fantastic. Yum makes my mouth water...good beers too! The service can be a tiny bit slow. I did have to wait last time, but that was at a slow time of day so I know they were...More

We ordered two 12" pizzas: A Bone Crusher and a Vegetarian. We asked for extra sauce on both. One had regular sauce and the other had almost no sauce. The crust was okay but too thin to pickup. I think they were trying to make...More
