We loved their pizza!

Very pleasant sitting outside under the canopy. Delicious crispy, bubbly, thin crust with fresh toppings. Everything looked so good, we ordered way more than we could possibly eat, but enjoyed every bite. Service was fast and friendly.

The pizzas were light and crispy and not at all stodgy as with some of the others in the area. Staff here are friendly and helpful... More

Great Italian food at great prices. We went there 5 times... twice in one day, for lunch then dinner! Quick service, complimentary plain bread and also pizza bread with sea salt and I think rosemary, so yummy. The pizzas are huge, and cheap for what you get; top quality wood-fired oven pizza. Loved everything I tried: Pennete ai quattro formaggi,... More
