CiCi's Pizza fills appetite tanks of all sizes with a buffet menu of endless Italian eats ($4.99/person).

Servings of pastas bathe in hearty marinara sauce, while three signature hand-tossed salads complement the full, fresh salad bar. Seal the meal with a slice of apple pizza, a frosted cinnamon roll, or enough warm brownies to build a to-scale model of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
