Lucky to find this gem!

We discovered this gem by accident, and we are glad we did! It is a small cafe in a strip center. You could easily pass it by. We were thrilled with the taste, quality and portions of our meals. The bread is unique and delicious! The lasagna was so generous it served as three meals. The... read more

I was amazed at the service as much as I was the food!! Our waitress was exceptional! Danna was patient, as we are not an easy group with 5 kids and I am on a restricted diet. Everything came out timely, and way better than even expected! We had pizza, Italian wedding soup, chicken parmesan, lasagna, manicotti and spinach salad.... More

The waiter was outgoing, friendly, and energetic. He made us feel comfortable as tourists. We ordered a 16" pizza cheese on half and their version of supreme on the other. It was a decent pizza. It might have cooked slightly too long, but was still good. Our garlic bread and salad were also good. The restaurant was nice. We enjoyed... More

Ordered a medium pizza for take-out and it was awesome!!!! Great pizza with average prices. The medium pizza was their combo pizza. It was loaded with a ton of meats and veggies. The cost with tax was under $18.00. Not bad for a high quality pizza and a sub 30 minute wait time around 6pm on a Thursday.

Casual local Italian restaurant with good food in huge portions and with reasonable prices. Their hand-tossed pizzas are amazing. Their salads are big enough to share. Can get crowded and might have to share a large table with others. On busy nights, it can take a while before your pizza is ready, but it is worth the wait.

Pizza, Calzone, Stromboli, Spaghetti w/meat balls....you name it, they cook it and it is delicious! That perfect Italian flavor and excellent service is what you will remember after dining there. Being a local, we go every other week, and we are never disappointed! It's a small family run place, get there early, but if you have to wait for a... More

Best to get there before 6:00 as they can get very busy. I personally judge pizza by it's sauce and thickness of its crust and I tend to like mine on the thinner sidem but not too thin. I am told that I really enjoy their vegetable pizza with pepperoni and that just so happens to be what the wife... More

Sauces are very flavorful. Linguini with white clam sauce was superb. Chicken Parm was one of the best.

Attitude sucks / customer service sucks. The guy taking the order thought he was funny while being a smart ... Ordered Lasagna, Spaghetti which is runny and watery, a greek salad (separate) from my regular order and all I received was bland food, one tiny piece of bread to be split between two dinners and a missing salad. When I... More
