It is not a pizza style restaurant more a fine dining spot. Small, cosy, with thick stucco walls, and a fireplace. I love the pastas and meat. Some of the things we have had were Gnocchi with crab- home made, and very light. Another entry was a house salad with grilled salmon which was enjoyed. A nice bottle of wine... More

We were there late afternoon on a Sunday and it was good that we had reservations. Six of us spit three pizzas and two cesare salads. More than enough. They have an excellent wine and beer list. Even though they... More

Menu is limited but what you get is very good. Pizzas and omelets are always good. Added an outside patio that is great in nice weather.

For our party of four, all of the various dishes were consistently well-prepared and presented. Setting is pleasant - absolutely a favorable experience and would do again. However, not a great place for quiet conversation. But then few are.

This restaurant is located in an old, small house off the beaten path with tons of charm when you walk into the dining area. Our meals at this restaurant were absolutely delicious and we savored every bite. We ordered the Chilean Sea Bass Special and the Tagliatelle Aglio e Olio. The sea bass was cooked to perfection. We knew instantly... More
