Great Pizza!

Stopped here for a lunch break after a little 5th Ave shopping & we were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. We were just going to walk by but they were handing out pizza samples & we were convinced after trying it to have more. We shared a pizza which was more than enough for 2 & it... read more

We happened upon this place with its fresh pasta presentation and a fresh pizza for sampling. The pizza looked good. so, me, being a pizza aficionado tried it. WE WERE IN! It was really good pizza. Nice crust, sauce and mozzarella. The restaurant itself had a nice ambience. We sat at an outside table, the waiters were dressed like italians,... More

Service was great and the food even more so! I had the sesame crusted salmon and my fiance had a pizza. Both were delicious. Definitely worth a visit!

We ate here without checking TripAdvisor first. Reading the reviews now, not sure we would have risked it but our food was good. Service is a bit slow but we weren't in a rush so no issue. People watching was good. I had pizza which was good. Partner had pasta which he said was very tasty. Pretty good value too.... More

Went there today for the first time and it was the best spaghetti bolognese I ever had in my life. My gf had a wonderful pizza. Awesome drinks and authentic and beautiful atmosphere. Service was perfect.

Good selection and good Italian pastas. Cabernet served at 85+ degrees. Management cares not whether you enjoyed your meal.
