We ate here on a Friday evening, we had read that if you don't make reservations, you may wait awhile. We did make reservations, and I would highly recommend that as when we were leaving there was already people waiting for tables. The place is very small, but so neat and quant. Very soft lighting, neat pictures on the wall.... More

Our family of 5 ordered garlic knots appetizer, large Caesar salad, kids pizza and 1 med. pizza. Plenty of food with some leftover. Pizza was delicious. NY Style thin crust. Service was exceptional. A little expensive. Bill was 40 dollars excluding gratuity. Price was worth it though as food was exceptional.

We dined here for the first time, based on the reviews. We had the garlic knots, pizza, chicken parm, Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken, and spaghetti with meatballs. The chicken parm, garlic knots, and pizza were excellent. The spaghetti and Alfredo were average and the meatballs were not heated throughout on the spaghetti. Our server was ok, not overly friendly, and... More

They take reservations-a plus because this is a small place. Delicious wood-fired pizzas. I had the arugula salad-it was delicious. Pizzas large enough to share for 2. GREAT service. The bread and dipping sauce were delicious.

Last minute decision turned out to be best dinner and left overs for lunch. The place was packed but had outside seating where the hostess took my order, offered drinks and was extremely accommodating. It took only a few minutes to have two brick oven pizzas and be back on the beach enjoying the goodness. Kudos.

I read the reviews and they say pizza was wonderful. It was Unseasoned, burnt and bland. Price was affordable, Tony location in strip mall but excellent friendly staff. Wouldn't recommend, you have to make reservations a well, they have 16 takes

Our pepperoni take out was really great with great flavored crust but the combination Stagioni had really fresh ingredients but a very soggy crust for take out....we will try dine in next time.

I went for the first time with friends. It was highly recommended, but never had experienced it first hand. Honestly, it was just amazing. We started with the garlic bread. I had the Pasta Corleone. On my! All of us were enchanted. I spent several years overseas, and I went to Italy several times. This place really took me back.... More
