Damm, I eat a Bacci's pizza a LOT!

They got decent food, and for $5.00 you get a HUGE slice of Pizza!

Their rationing of pop really annoyed me, as did their $3 to $3.50 price increase in Summer 2001 (Wells Street Location).

Never mind arson. The guy should be in jail for making such lousy pizza.

Hard to beat the price though.

It's one small step above Pizza Hut. But you get a gigantic slice that's bigger than a "personal pizza" and a pop with free refills for five bucks. Makes for a quick, cheap lunch.

I think the pizza is one step BELOW Pizza Hut. At least at the Bacci's I go to. They're really skimping on the cheese. And they raised the price & are charging tax now. The near me just charged $3.50 - no tax. I think it's $4.00 plus tax now.

The fries are the thin kind & are always cold. They should get decent fries.:) And not skimp on the cheese!

He owns 18 stores and wants to burn down one because he doesnt want to do repairs? He deserves to go to jail. GREED will get you everytime.

Plus, the pizza is NASTY.

If this is true then he is truly a sleeze bag. He had to know people would be home on Christmas Eve.

I don't think it was one of his pizzaz stores that burned, but another property he owned.
