Mean Owner!!! Don't go, especially late at night!
My husband and I decided to go out for pizza late on Friday night. An acquaintance recommended The Village. According to this website, they close at midnight. We drove about 25 minutes to this place, getting there around 10:25pm, and found out that they closed at 10pm. I asked one of the employees outside to see his manager so that I could let them know about the misprinted time on the website. He stated that no one in charge was at the restaurant. Just then, a truck pulls up and the employee states that the girl running in was the owner's daughter. As she came out, I called for her so that I could inform her of the misprint. She was very sweet and said that she would give us some pizza if any was left, but there wasn't. While we were chatting, very briefly I must add, the man in the car honked and then threw his hands up. The very nice young lady said, "oh, sorry, that's my dad the owner". We started to end our conversation and he then pulls forward again, honking and yelling at her to come to the car because he was hungry. I stuck my head out of the car and said, "hey!!! I am a customer". He didn't care and whined more. I let her go to her but stated that we won't be back. It's very unfortunate since he had no idea who we were and the business we could have brought him. But...maybe he just doesn't need any more business. Good luck grouchy! Totally uncalled for and childish behavior for a restaurant owner!!! Thank you for your kindness daughter of grouchy! I appreciate your professionalism!
I decided to stop here for lunch as I was driving through on vacation and I was quite pleased. The place was nice and the pizza was great. I only had pizza so I can't speak for anything else on the menu, but I'll be back when I'm in the area again for sure.

I would have to agree with the reviewer CSMobileUser2. The crust is simply too thin. Even folded over, the slice sags and droops and ingredients fall off. They fall off because there is hardly any cheese to hold them down, and that's IF they're even placed under the cheese to begin with, which, sadly for some by the slice orders, they are not. And Mapleman, their sausage IS incredible. It's incredible a place boasting pride and tradition in their pizza still uses that crappy, crumbly sausage that even Domino's stopped using years ago. This place is bogus.

Founded by former Brooklyn-ites, this pizza joint is all about NY, down to its decorations (NY inspired memorabilia), which keeps the spirit of the Big Apple alive. Their delicious, hand-spun pizzas are wrapped with dough made daily and contain no additives, while the toppings are ripe, fresh and California grown.
I don't know why, in all the years I've lived here, it's taken me so long to try this place. While I LOVE deep dish, sometimes a great NY crust is great. The crust here is awesome, and I judge pizza by the crust. Can't be too thin, too soggy, too hard, and definitely has to have flavor. Oh, this pizza hits all my thin crust qualifications. And I'm not a huge toppings person, but their meatball is really yummy. Plus I can hit Crumbs and get a coffee as well for dessert. Ah, a perfect Sunday date!

They have the best thin crust pizza here and what separates them from everyone else is their crust!! The garlic rolls are also very very good and price is so affordable! $8.50 for a whole lunch special (which includes an individual pizza of 6-8 slices, a side salad, garlic roll and drink)
