First let me say that I am not a pizza expert (BBQ is my thing). Still had a business dinner here one night and would the place pretty good. The service was very good. The pizza was good, but to my taste no real difference than a Pizza Hut other than the wool fired aspect. Value - a little on... More

Went for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon and the place was basically empty. We ordered two (individual size) pizzas and waited and waited for them… We were both given soda refills and the waiter told us the pizza was coming right out. Ten minutes later, ONE pizza was placed on the table between us and we were told the other... More

This is a convenient spot for large groups....especially families who are looking for a casual meal after a Trinity Theater performance. The room is large, menu kid friendly, and service quite efficient even with a full house. One thing that was two full was the bathroom. ....just two with lines. As for the food: the pizza I had was beyond... More

Service at this establishment is wonderful....ask for Elonzo's tables although all waitstaff are great. The food is prepared to perfection and the ambience is crisp yet comfortable. The menu is diverse and when one talks pizza you're not talking about your average pizza. Their pizzas are culinary pizzas as well as any item on their menu.

This was average thin crust pizza. The crust was extremely burned in several spots on our two pizzas. Toppings were generous and tasty, but food should not be delivered to a table when it is so crispy that it is black. Our waiter didn't apparently notice. I was not impressed and would not go back to this restaurant again.

The pizza was fair at best. I do believe this place is way overrated. We also had the Cesar salad, but we thought it had an over presence of anchovy. That was OK but still, fair at best. Along with that we had the meatballs they where decent. Would I go back there, probably not I have found much better... More

Came here because we were craving pizza! It did not disappoint. The pizza, the Mediterranean chicken pizza was amazing! The atmosphere left something to be desired and wasn't as intimate or cozy as I was hoping, but definitely good food and service.

Had a big group and they took care of us ! Chris the managre plus staff could not have been better. All 29 people left filled up on great pizza and drinks. I like coal fired and there were many choices of pizza plus other foods. Service was attentive and very efficient. Enjoyed getting to know them also.

Pizza was one of the best pizzas I've ever had.. also the waiter was awesome ! My recommendation is to get a pizza -- half of it the 4 cheese & the other half meatball. You won't be disappointed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also try the wings. They're so good too.
