Napoleon is the speciality here as they showcase rich, full flavours that always keep guests coming back for more.
We recommend you try their margarita with robust tomato sauce and fresh basil. They serve it up with a nice thin crust that’s not too chewy and not too crispy. Oh, and the service? Top-notch every time you visit.
At Kemencés, it’s clear that they take their time with their pies. Upon the first bite, you’ll note how perfectly crispy the crust is.
Then, you’ll get a taste of the incredible sauce paired with the piping hot, ooey-gooey cheese.
It’ll rock your tastebuds each and every time you visit. But, if you really want something especially tasty, try their Picante Pizza. It is, as you can guess, nice and spicy.
