Great pizza, super friendly service, and conveniently located. And I have to add that theit vegetarian pizza was the best vegetarian pizza I have ever had. It was amazing! Even the carnivores in our group loved it!

Once we figured out the restaurant was upstairs from the parking lot, we enjoyed pizza and salad for lunch. The thin crust pizza was very good, the chef salad and homemade croutons were very good. Our waitress was very friendly and prompt.

NY pizza, albeit a tad thick crusted if you’re a true NYer. But dude, so good!!! Great view of the lake, friendly service. Can think of zero reasons to give this anything other than a five rating. Went to “number one” pizza chain down the...More

I remember the pizza we shared was over average size - perhaps a 20" pie. As far as the slice - somewhere in the 3-4" range I think
