We wanted some NY style pizza for dinner and had seen this place on our Segway tour that morning. Pizza was good and the meatballs were very good! Quick service and plenty of seating.

You order at the couner they bring the food to your table. The wait is not long. Serves one of the best cheese steaks in Pinellas County.

Was in the mood for some Italian food so we tried this place out and was very surprise how it was. We are from the NE and didn't think we can find good Italian food but we were wrong, give it a try if in downtown St Pete

The $6 lunch deal is good for this part of town. Fast service, large and tasty slices. This place is a short walk to the waterfront.

When wandering downtown St. Pete or before or after a show, can't beat the quick service of this little pizza/Italian diner. Pretty busy, prices were good. Salad was "meh" but my guest's pizza sub was crazy stuffed and good. The garlic knots were delish! We went around dinner time and they were out of iced tea in the serve yourself... More

Convenient to the Central Avenue bars, it's a convenient place for late night munchies. The pizza is good and they have lots of choices.

This is a "must go to" restaurant every time I come visit. The price is right, the food is good and the employees are friendly. Get the garlic knots!! So good!!

Convenient downtown, but the food is so so. Service staff more or less indifferent, and there are better alternatives nearby.

I had a Mediterranean pizza slice and a pepperoni slice. The pieces were huge! Taste was okay - not bad but nothing special. Too much cheese on Mediterranean slice. Pepperoni was not too spicy. Would not go or recommend bc nothing special and the restroom was horrible. I think upkeep reflects on the overall experience and I lost my appetite.... More

Great pizza! Quick, friendly service. Fun atmosphere. We walked there from the Dali Museum. A trolley stop is nearby.
