Don't stop here if you are looking for good pizza. We recently moved into the area and started the search for good pizza. Lisa's was one of the stops and the pizza was terrible. The crust literally tasted like cardboard.

I love their veal, always good. Not a fancy place but food is good. Priced reasonably and service was good. Wouldn't recommend for a romantic dinner but good just for a nice dinner with friends.
