A great place for a casual night out. The menu on open table doesn’t have half of the great items on the real menu. My wife and I had the Gorgonzola bread and the 3 meat pizza. Both were very good. Despite other reviews, the wait for the pizza wasn’t bad at all. My wife had one of the special cocktails, the cloud 921 (or some such). It was tasteless. Don’t bother. Wine prices are reasonable.

My husband ADORES pizza and we've had trouble finding his favorite pizza of the area since we moved here... until now. I reserved Dumans for his birthday celebration and was very impressed. Ozzy Duman even messaged me asking what my husband's favorite cocktail was and that they'd have one for him when we arrived! The pizza was fantastic, perfectly cooked and the toppings tasted homemade and fresh. He couldnt stop talking about how good it was while he devoured the entire pizza. The flaming fried cheese and bread was awesome, as well as the chocolate cake for dessert. We will be back 👍!

Duman is one of my favorite restaurants. We were here celebrating our anniversary, sitting at the same table where we had our first date. 😍 The Gorgonzola pizza is my favorite. Part of what I come there for each time! My love got the pappardelle pasta. It had great flavor but could have had more shrimp for the price. Also should come with some bread. We requested some and spent $1 to get a small chunk. Not too bad. Will be back. Again and again.

Ranch dressing is very good.
I ordered spaghetti and meatballs. Everything is perfectly cooked. The restaurant makes the meatballs from scratch, meaty and delicious.

I cannot get over how amazing our experience was! The service was great and our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu. I was extremely happy with the garlic knots (will be purchasing again), Caesar salad, and Margarita pizza. We will be returning for sure!

Excellent food & service. Sierra was personality plus. Sun -dried tomatoe homemade salad dressing was delicious. Even bought a container to bring home. Pizza is the best on Northshore. Will be back again this weekend.

Pizza is always consistent - quality and flavor is perfect every time. Crust is baked just right. Owners are always on-site and really want diners to enjoy the experience. Apps also excellent.

Have been here a few times now and always love whatever we've ordered. The garlic knots are very good and have enjoyed their pizzas. Everything seems homemade so I don't mind waiting a few extra minutes for their food. One of my favorite places!

Took my wife out for date night. First time here, but not our last. When we arrived the hostess greeted us immediately. We then met our waitress Kailey and were seated. We were very impressed with Kailey and her help with the menu. We started with the spinach and artichoke dip. Yum yum . The best we have had. The Pizza was amazing. Love the thin crust. Can’t wait to go with friends.

Nice little neighborhood restaurant - sort of specializes in Pizza. Some are unique although I am strictly cheese pizza person. The appetizer and the bread were very good. We took our own wine and they have very reasonable corkage fees and were very helpful. Good place if you are hungry and want some good Italian comfort food.

I wasn't very impressed and it's not on the list to return anytime soon, however, the pizzas and desserts were great. The atmosphere is loud and hard to have conversations and it wasn't even that crowded. The service wasn't good either.

The staff are friendly. The place is clean with high ceiling. My husband and I always order the same item, which is the triple meat pizza. As always, the pizza is served hot and the crust is crunchy.

Extremely slow. Good pizza if you have a lot of time. Kitchen only has two ovens so if it's crowded you should go somewhere else.

Appetizers and salads good.Wine list limited. Some tables appeared to have trouble with timely service. Pizza was good, crust was thin but I was expecting a more rustic irregular shape with lots of exposed crust and air pockets in the dough. The menu is planned to use the same ingredients over and over again in many items. You can get vegetarian options.They have done good job with decor. Children of all ages present.

First off when we arrived they had no knowledge of our reservation" maybe it was somewhere else", I showed it to her on my phone and she said "yes, that's us,i don't know" fortunately they had empty tables. Ordered ALL our food before 8:00. Ate the garlic knots, they were great, salad was great, they came to the table in a timely fashion. WAITED 40 MINUTES AFTER APPETIZERS WERE FINISHED AND STILL NO PIZZA. the waitress had several lame excuses but obvious problems in the kitchen. After expressing displeasure after catching the eye of the waitress who was embarrassed and avoiding us the pizza arrived 45 minutes after finished appetizers were cleared off table. Pizza was great but wait was horrible. Lesson was don't go on weekends or dinner rush time even though not full and had empty tables they are incompetent and not sufficiently staffed.
