This is something more of a "south American" Italian restaurant, with unusual toppings such as hard boiled egg for your pizza. Of course you can get all the usual toppings as well, and the crust is awesome, thin and crispy, cooked in the wood fire oven.
The standout for me is the home made raviolis, they are delicious! The lasagne was just okay, too much meat and not enough cheese or sauce for our tastes at the table.
The sandwiches were ok but somewhat dry, I would not order them again.
Oh, the dessert. ..gelato. ..yum!
Service is friendly although somewhat slow. I expect this will get worse once the snowbirds arrive!

We started with bruchetta. It was amazing. We ordered a pizza with their homemade mozzarella cheese. It was great. The service was outstanding. We were too full for dessert but they gave us a sample of the gellatto and it was great. We went back the next night just for desser. We will definitely go back on our next visit.

Love the new look and food is good.
Pizza is really good and true Italian style.
Gelato was gritty though and just not right.....maybe just a bad batch? Will have to give it another try cause its the closest Gelateria around !

Stumbled upon this little gem looking for brunch before noon on a Sunday. Cute little sidewalk café on the outside, modern, clean bistro inside. The wood brick oven got my attention and was well worth the change of heart from brunch. The dough is made fresh, as is the mozzarella, and you can tell when you get a pizza or calzone here! Expect thin crust, very nice sauce that’s not sweet, fresh ingredients and good service. While we only stayed for pizza, salad and beer, it was very delicious and made me want to come back for more!

Wow what a gelato offering this place has! And it’s in a great part of town, easy walk, decent parking.
