Perfect meal!

We came here for lunch during a swim meet, with three hungry swimmers preparing for finals (and their equally hungry parents). The food was fresh and delicious, the service was unmatched. Highly recommend! We will be back.

Their pizza is loaded with delicious, fresh ingredients cooked to perfection! Their pasta is homemade, and delicious, also. The servers are very personable. Love going there!

Was served lukewarm, obviously old pasta with a rubbery, tasteless chicken parm that I took literally three bites of and chucked out back for the animals. Caprice panini was just as bad according to my girlfriend. If I could give 0 stars I would. Ironically enough, the place was packed. I would literally have rather gone to the OG.

They make their own wines and a nice selection of fruit tastes. The Riesling with strawberries is sweet, and light. Almost a dessert wine. I truly enjoyed it. My husband enjoyed the Merlot and Chianti. Server did a great job explaining the options and services was attentive. The house salad was fresh, with roasted red peppers, and fresh mozzarella. Best...
