PIZZA!!! Instead of the fast food Pizza delivery services in Ankeny I highly recommend ordering the Greek Pizza to go with a side of Yanni's combo platter, choosing the Fried Zucchini, Fired Calamari and Toasted Ravioli. You won't regret it. This is real Pizza, not a laboratory chemical concoction designed to enrich a corporation. Alan Maupin
One of our favorites! Great food and the garlic knots are amazing! Michaela Moore
