“I mean... their pizza... here... we are talking about the proper pizza! We have been there numerous times and every time I say to myself "you know what I will try something else"... but I just can't.. I need to have their pizza.! piiiizzzzaaaaa... !!!! exceptionally creative and delicious vegetarian options! Their jazz lounge music is a perk definitely and with a glass of wine (and probably not pizza) it is a good spot for a date for two :)”
