We had a great lunch. Spectacular service and the food was so good!!! Large portions and very fresh! The average lunch entree is around $10 but plenty to take home for dinner. The bread and oil was so good! Don’t miss out!

My wife and I tried this restaurant with two other couples Friday night. We shared a flatbread and salad. Both were excellent. All our friends enjoyed their choices. We will definitely return. So many fantastic looking choices. Definitely recommended.

From our hand-made mozzarella to our artisanal pizzas, pastas and salads, we have a passion for quality and pride in our product that we know you'll appreciate. We only use sustainable, fresh, local ingredients.
