    1st visit today — surprised at comments here citing poor service because our server, Brad, was noticeably excellent: friendly, attentive, & error-free on several unusual orders. The food: nomnomnom! Read more

    Get olive oil instead of the other pizza sauces... it makes the crust so buttery and delicious! And you can't go wrong with any of their dozens of pizza toppings!

    Get the stuffed mushroom appetizer, a Caesar salad and the mushroom ravioli! So delicious! Love the atmosphere and the service. Tim is the best!

    Very slow but nice service. Crust is amazing. Roasted garlic on your pizza doesn't count as a topping. Their 2 slice plus a soda lunch special is great value.

    This has become my go-to place in Downtown Durham when the other spots are either too packed or have decided they can't serve food after 10pm on weekends. :-)

    Great food. Salads overflow the bowl with all sorts of good things. One of the best Italian restaurants in Durham!

    Great laid back atmosphere and friendly service! I wouldn't recommend the roasted veggie salad though. Stick with pizza maybe?

    Insane number of toppings, delicious crust, cool loft seating, and great beer selection. Big Star is where it's at!

    Some of the best non NY style pizza in the country. Their atmosphere is second to none!

    This has become my go-to lunch place. Grab a spot at the bar for a really quick slice,salad and a beer.

    this is nothing like the amazing pizza I remember at the Raleigh mothership had years ago. it's not Lilly's, it's DiGiorno.

    The outside patio is a great date night atmosphere and the Hawaiian punch pizza was amazing!

    Forego the slice, and go for a whole pizza. You'll be glad you did. Great pizza!

    Amazing pizza, but the service definitely leaves a lot to be desired. The toasted pita appetizer is DELICIOUS.

    Lemon Tahini dressing is great for a salad, and hang onto some for your crusts too.

    It was much better than the 50/50 ratings people left on yelp. I love the decor and the waitstaff.

    They got my order wrong the first time and just let me keep the extra pizza for free. Awesome!

    Compared to the Lily's in Raleigh, this pizza joint should be ashamed of it's offerings. But, compared to most, it is average. The gluten free pizza is terrible, also.

    Service can be very poor. Long time to get seated, long time to get drinks and food too. Overall though, the food is pretty darn good.

    Pizza is good, but the service in the restaurant and for delivery are often bad. After repeated bad experiences with lost orders and management's lack of empathy I have decided to never go back.

    Slow service. Poor management. 30 plus ticket times. Pizza was doughy. Appetizers were sub par. Enzo's is far superior and faster delivery. 2 stars
