Stopped by for a late lunch and had pizza with meatballs. Since the name is Pizza by the Chef, I honestly thought the meatballs would be homemade. They weren't. The same type of meatballs you can buy frozen in just about any food store, complete...More

Thanks for the review and feedback!!! We appreciate your business and the suggestion adding a blush to our wine list. Have you tried Mascato? Many blush drinkers enjoy a sweet Mascato too!

Sorry Chef, you’re stuck in a hole in the wall with food that tastes like it came from a hole in the wall. My kids ordered very basic mozzarella sticks and I think they came straight from a microwave. Blah.

We got 3 pizzas as take-out. My Mama Mia pizza was really good with mozzarella, meatballs & basil. That's where our good experience ended. We ordered a plain cheese pizza and one with pepperoni for the kids. Both were overcooked and kind of dry. Kids...More
