Stopped by here whilst traveling through Galveston and were not disappointed. Ordered a pizza and a pasta dish to share and both were great as expected from other reviews. Service was outstanding as well.

Can't answer, I don't drive 45 miles one way to eat pizza. Supposed to be very good. That what it was when the place started on Bolivar. I eat pasta which is outstanding.
