    Legendary thin crust NJ pizza. A hungry 175 pound male can easily house a pie; order accordingly.

    Of course the pizza is kick a$$. But so is everything else. Calamari is really good. If you don't have the kids with you, try sitting at the bar. You'll save wait time on a busy night!

    Melt-in-your-mouth, ultra-thin, cheesy, savory goodness. On my short list of must-try pizza joints. Arrive early to avoid long wait for a table, but it's worth it.
