Pizza was great... and you've got to check out the special oven they use! Pick out a special bottle of wine or check out their vinegar selections! Cool little spot!!

Wood fired, thin crust, delicious pizza. Many other foods on the menu, but we had the pizza. They also make their own wines. Great European atmosphere.

The server was great, and the pizza we ordered was ok, but the pasta was horrible. I know a thing or two about cooking and the pasta had too much flour and was not cooked sufficiently. I know what al dente is and it sure wasn't what I tasted it - the pasta had raw flour taste that my guests... More

We found this little gem through tripadvisor. We had a great lunch on a rainy day! Linda is an absolute doll. Delicious wood fire pizza! Huge selection of house made oils and vinegars. Fig vinegar was our fave. Thanks Linda for turning our rainy day frowns upside down!

I've been hearing about this place for over a year and the meal I has there today was subpar. They were out of 3 wines I wanted to order and the wine my friend and I ended up ordering was awful! The salad was very good but the Neapolitan pizza was bland and flavorless.

I am terribly sorry we couldn't find a wine to your liking here. Out of the 25 different wines made in house. We do realize our younger style wines are not for everyone. And I am also terribly sorry you "had" to drink the bottle you ordered. If you would of asked for the manager I can assure you it... More

Just terrible. Ordered a couple of pasta dishes to go ( I guess my first clue should have been when they said they were out of spaghetti ). We got back to our hotel and opened the containers to find overcooked pasta (pasty and dry) with some sort of brown sauce that was in edible. It takes allot to get... More
