We went to the restaurant for a late lunch on Monday; arriving around 1:15 pm and only a few tables were in service. Our drink orders were taken promptly and we attempted to order when we were served. Our waiter deferred and said he would be right back; not so-a considerable amount of time before he came back to take... More

The staff was great and very helpful throughout the meal. Cassandra, our waitress was great and it seemed like everyone working there loved their job. Oh, and the pizzas were fantastic as... More

We love sitting outside on the patio. The staff are wonderful. It's worth the 45 minute drive, we love it. Just wish they would open up a location in... More

This place is hidden in a small shopping area. The atmosphere is elegant but not overwhelming. The Caesar Salad was good. Nice touch to have the tempura anchovi topping it. The pizza is big enough for two to share

This is a very warm and inviting little restaurant with one of the best pizzas that I have ever tasted. I have tried a lot of pizzas and this one definitely ranks top on my list of favorite pizza places. It is a Neapolitan style pizza. The crust is so perfectly thin, crispy and fluffy. The sauce, cheese, and toppings... More

What a nice surprise. The pizza is on a thin type crust with great crunchy.flavor but not tough. Tons of great toppings in addition to great looking salads and sandwiches. The build your own pizza can easily be shared. Enjoy!
