We had the margherita pizza. Excellent pizza made to order. Delicious crisp crust. There are some table outside. We ordered at the register and when the pizza was done they delivered it to the table.

We loved it. I could end this review here with just that statement. We had a couple Danish and ordered a large margherita pizza. They delivered it next door. These were hummingly good. Just look below that was ours.
