    if you arrive before 5pm in weekdays, you can choose a special either pizza+soda or pizza+soda+salad and portions are super big!

    The gold standard of potato pizzas -- their Baked-Potato Pizza is that potato pizza I hold all others against to judge. Pizza Bianco is surprisingly spicy.

    Excellent woodfired oven pizza. Great ingredients and tasty crust. Nice outside seating as well.

    No pizza by the slice after 5pm apparently :(

    Nice place to bring kids. Friendly staff.

    Soft serve ice cream is a great deal and will feed at least 2.

    Kat Duncan · September 15, 2014

    Their lunch special is a slice, half salad and a fountain drink for $11. Big portions all around and a great value!

    Have to say that the thin crust pepperoni pizza was quite good. Nice outdoor seating, too.

    The margherita pizza is incredible

    they don't deliver unless it's over $250, but they have Door Dash and you can get delivery thru them.

    Super expensive. Was overcharged based on incorrect price information given over the phone and the manager told me I was lying!! Don't bother with this unethical place.

    As much as I love the pizza here, the service gets more confused and less courteous with each visit...

    Say hi to Howie, who is usually behind the counter tossing a pie. He'll create off-menu toppings/combos, so don't be shy to ask.

    $5 slice and soda! Love the crispy crusts here!

    Jessica Chan · December 29, 2012

    The chopped salad is great, and large enough for 3-4 to share as a starter...

    Amanda Reid · August 25, 2012

    Garlic bread. So. Good.

    Andrew Rich · April 28, 2012

    Pizza, salads, wine list - all terrific. That's why there's ever a line and s l o w service!

    Definitely worth any wait. Very nice wine list, especially for a pizza place.

    You must order baked potatoe pizza.

    Order the Martella "Hammer" Syrah by the glass, while it lasts. (10/16/11)

    Heard the owner here is a big ole meanie

    Great wine list. The Howie Red is from Fogerty!

    Peg Champion · August 27, 2011

    The Margarita Pizza is the best I've had. Really authentic and delicious. A glass of the Zinfandel goes great with it.

    Corey Ford · July 31, 2011
  • Bob S.

    Mixed greens coupled with the chicken chipotle melt is my new combo

    Bob Scirpo · July 19, 2011
  • Felix C.

    Try the Pizza Bianco!

    Felix Crisan · December 23, 2010

    Thy usually burn the crust. Need to ask them to make it light.

    Joon Lee · October 10, 2010
  • Sandeep C.

    go for the chipotle chicken sandwiches....

    Sandeep Chandana · August 27, 2010
  • Chris W.

    The Caesar is great. However, it is even better if you get it with fried pepperoni.

    Chris Winters · June 29, 2010
  • Will C.

    Foods amazing. One of the best pizzas I have ever had... Service sucks. Its hard just to get a refill!

    Will Caron · June 13, 2010

    Chicken grilled sandwich is totally awesome.

    A slice of cheese pizza is $5. It is big (good for a couple) and it is delicious.

    Emrecan Dogan · April 17, 2010
  • Michael B.

    Add the red chili paste to your pizza! Very yummy.

    Michael Bray · April 10, 2010
  • Glennia C.

    Try the baked potato pizza. It's delish.

    Glennia Campbell · March 21, 2010
  • Sergey S.

    A pizza slice and a small coke is $5, a bit on the expensive side but at least better than nothing. It also gets CROUDED by noon on weekdays by Paly students.
