    I was there during Festival International when they were super busy yet they didn’t miss a beat. Service was great, food came out fast & everything was delicious. It’s my go to spot when I’m in Lafayette!

    Food and drinks were terrific, as usual. Unfortunately, we were seated at a high top table, and it was the opposite of cozy, or even comfortable. Service was pleasant, but rather slow on this Monday night. No doubt we’ll be back. Every other visit has been outstanding.

    Definitely a better experience than a chain pizza place. Lots of options, pie was good and hot out of the oven. Service was great.

    The restaurant was closed when we got there. I've been before & food is great but to let people make reservations when you're closed is frustrating.

    The vibe feels like a place from New York. It has lots of small tables in a long narrow restaurant. The mood was set with tea candle lit dinner and lots of laughter. The cooks in the back were just as excited to be there as we were. Food was AMAZING. Would go again any day.

    They require you to put your mask on for the 8 steps to the table, but the people making the pizzas have their masks pulled down. Wait staff was talking to each other and didn’t even attend to our table more than twice.
