Arrived not knowing anything about the place. The staff were warm and welcoming and sat us without everyone being there. 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

This place is amazing. Every item is complicated and mixes flavors perfectly. Consider the specials carefully because they are perfect.

Had brunch on the patio! Granchio omelette is incredible. Wonderful service too! I had the Italian potatoes with mine. The salad was also excellent! Indoor atmosphere is awesome too!

Have been several times and will be back. Most comparable pizza we found in our area to the pizza we enjoyed while in Italy. Everything we have tried here has been delicious!

It's not about the happy hour specials and $5 brick oven pizzas because you can't get a bar seat unless you are there by 5:30. Everything on this menu is top notch. Haven't had anything I wouldn't term fantastic. Been a dozen times at least and still trying new things. Oh. And if you're lucky you might spot Harry Hairston... More
