A bit more expensive than "chain" pizza, but worth every penny. A wide variety of items - produced by a family business which despite success has resisted "expanding to the point of mediocrity". I highly recommend the "special" deep dish "stuffed" pizza. You won't find better pizza anywhere.

This is some of the most amazing Italian food I have ever eaten, from fully loaded pizzas to their amazing lasagna. It is delicious and slightly pricey. The only advice I can give is don't ever expect to just drop in and get a table. This won't happen and the restaurant is small. They should have upgraded years ago. If... More

First, as I'm sure you gathered from reading most of the other reviews here, the food is fantastic. We moved into the area a few years ago and have been here 3 times. I've thoroughly enjoyed everything I've tried so far as have my wife and friends. The wait staff is very friendly and do the best they can to... More

We have been here a bunch of times, both eat in and take out. The food is amazing. I love the amount of cheese. The only thing I don't like is the Fennell seeds in the lasagna. Wish they wouldn't put those in there..
