This is a good Italian restaurant for those who enjoy pizza and some traditional Italian fare. The bread sticks are huge and soaked in butter -- they're more along the lines of a small loaf of bread than a breadstick. They do not offer any gluten free options and use wheat in all of their soups.

Best pizza I've ever had, hands down. I've had a couple other items and they were great as well. Very nice staff and nice atmosphere. Its very popular, so it can be really packed some days, but its worth the wait!

I had a quick lunch there, knowing nothing about the restaurant in advance. The pizza, cooked in a wood-fire oven, is excellent! I do not know anything about the other foods offered.

This place was recommended to us. It was great food and the prices were great. In fact we went back for a second meal. They have great homemade garlic bread. We were told the line is out the door on the weekend.
