Josh Woodward rates this 10 / 10:

I'd passed by this place many times, and kept meaning to go, but the interior is intimidating from the outside - only a couple tables in view, and no menu. Luckily, there are more tables hiding behind the counter, and it's set up very nicely for dining in.

Pizza's a really personal thing - everyone has their own tastes. If you're into medium thickness crust with the perfect balance of crunchiness and chewiness, sweet sauce full of fresh tomato flavor, and lightish cheese (like I am), you'll love this. I have a soft spot for Jac 'n Do's, but this is definitely the best pizza I've had in Findlay. It even rivals my favorite pizza anywhere: Mio Vicino in the South Bay in California. The "Primo" is awesome - pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, green peppers and onions. More please. The cheeseless pizza Neapolitan is zen perfection - a half hour later, you can pick up a slice and it'll be straight as a rule, and crunch in your mouth. Great prices: only $6.45 for a good-sized personal pizza. Add to that the incredibly friendly staff that really make you feel like you're at home, and you've got a winner.

I'd assumed by the glitzy logo and polished look that this was a chain, but this is a Findlay original. Kudos!
