The decor is pretty much bare bones, no-nonsense, a table-and-chairs type of pizza place. All the attention is on the food, not some drippy candles and checkered tablecloths.
We ordered a couple slices of the freshly made pies and settled down at a table to eat and watch the World Series on the tube. The first bite made me smile. I had a slice of pizza with a topping of pepperoni, Italian sausage, and mushrooms. It was great! The toppings were plentiful, but what I really liked was the sauce. So many pizzas have so little sauce on them or the sauce is so bland that all you taste is crust, toppings, and cheese. To me, the sauce wraps it all together, and Cy Belle's sauce did just that. It had a fresh, full-bodied taste, with just the right amount of spices to bring the pizza alive. I ate the 2 slices I had originally ordered, went back for 2 more and stayed around to finish watching the game.
So if you get tired of the high-dollar fancy places, and want to just relax and enjoy the food, try some pizza at Cy Belle's. Oh, and by the way, they do deliver and their veggie pizzas are great too!
