Delicious pizza - we had a large pepperoni to share which was about $20 and then shared an original New York cheesecake (very yummy) Service was good and not too over the top which we experienced in other places! Family friendly. Highly recommend

The pizza selection is expansive and the taste is the equivalent of a Broadway Show for the taste buds. I would also like to point out that there calamari is excellent. The atmosphere is quite, soft lighting, and relaxed. The staff is professional and personal.
