Could do without the foul language and the cigarette smoke. Bathrooms were nasty. Cooks not wearing gloves or hair nets. Servers were not very attentive.

"Best kept pizza secret in the area always worth the drive"

The pizza is exceptionally good!, and their antipasta salads are great too. Everything is really fresh. Every trip we make to Branson, we make a point to eat pizza here. We have introduced this great little 1970's time capsule to many friends and they also make a point to drive to the La Pizza Cellar to eat when they visit Branson.

"Taste like"

Baking soda no matter how how many topping you add it still taste like Baking soda to bad . The smell of the people smoking when your trying to eat is bad. We don't drink or smoke so I think that's why we know what a pizza is suppose to taste like. . Any how we ordered a lot of things on the menu none of it was worth the high price nor had a great taste .. But if your into getting drunk and smoking up the place then you will enjoy this place and the food.

"Best Pizza in Area, Lacks atmosphere"

In my estimation this is the best pizza in the area. Unfortunately its basement atmosphere does not meet the quality of the Pizza. It is also not convienently located, yet every time I take the 30 or so minute drive there I wonder why I don't go there more. Really exceptional Pizza in a basement bar atmosphere. If they relocated to a closer Branson location and had atmosphere that equaled their food they would be unbeatable.
