We've eaten there several times and have enjoyed their pizza which has really good cheese (they dn't skimp on the toppings either). We've had several pasta dishes which were okay but nothing special that made me want to order them again. Staff and owners are very friendly providing very good service.

Beautiful place that serves one of the best vegetarian pizzas I have ever had! The pesto base was a refreshing break from the sweet tomato base served by almost every other wannabe pizza place. The ingredients were fresh and the base was thick yet crispy and not floury/doughy! The staff was attentive and very friendly. And don't forget to try... More

The garlic knots and tomato soup are winners ever time. I love the unique herbs they use on their pizza crust and that I can get a yummy pizza for under $4 that fills me up. Their buffalo mac is also delicious.

I love, love, love their chicken pesto penne! It's the main thing I order when we go there. The pizza is really good too. I like the fresh toppings on it! The service has always been stellar and the atmosphere is never rushed. It's in a converted house which just makes it seem so homey. Very reasonably priced too.

You could drive past this place and not notice it. I would suggest you go out of your way to find it. We were there on a Friday evening about 7PM. We were able to get a table without a wait. The restaurant is built in a converted house. This gives it a very comfortable,"homey" feel. The food was very... More

Never tried the Pizza here, since they have some Italian dishes on the menu that you don't find in the area. Love the fried calamari w/ marinara for dipping, Lightly breaded, not too chewy or fishy tasting. Had the fisherman's stew, since I like mussels, and all very fresh tasting. Relaxing atmosphere, service good, and reasonable prices. I prefer local... More
