Better than your average pizza place

I've eaten here several times over the past year, and the food has been very good. Last night (7/29/15) my wife and I dined there with a friend. While the menu has some traditional Italian fare, the chef also prepares some interesting dishes using fresh commodities. Last night I had a "hanger... read more

I have ate here a few times and never have been disappointed. Very unique flavors, fresh produce and great staff. It does get busy at lunch time, but that is what happens when you bring great food to the Tri Cities. I need to go back and try some more formal meals such a dinner, but in the mean time... More

My partner and I dined at this establishment along with a group of friends on a Friday evening in mid-July. We chose this restaurant because they had gluten-free items on the menu. We found the food to be average at best. My partner's burger patty was overcooked, as was my airline chicken. Service was good enough, although our server plum... More

Great little joint that's well decorated, small--but open space makes it feel larger than it is. Great wine and beer list. Excellent pizzas, and a large menu that has something for everyone. Last visit i had the Ahi Salad--tuna was perfectly cooked and the dressing was delicious. We were also treated to some of the desserts--all great, but we recommend... More

Finally he came back to take my order, just before I was about to walk away. I ordered a Calzone If sorts with a fish soup. Waited forevet. Other tables... More

I had the calzone and french onion soup and was very impressed by both. Wife had the Chicken ciabatta and salad and was also very impressed. Went here on a recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed. It's great food in a quiet, comfortable environment. You won't be let down. Will definitely be back as it's on my top... More

Ordered a large pizza to go and a salad with house vinaigrette on the side. They said 15 -20 minutes. I drove over from our hotel and arrived earlier than I thought. The waitress said to have a seat and the order would be right out. I sat on an uncomfortable vinyl chair in the heat of the day over... More

Nice variety of pizzas, sandwiches, and entrees. I've had quite a few of the items on the menu and, when I became a vegetarian several years ago was able to still find great items. Quite a few of the pizza's are vegetarian. There are at least two entrees - pasta primavera and lasagna that are vegetarian. Great selection of salads.... More

We've been here twice - once for lunch, once for dinner. Both meals have been outstanding. We love the menu and will go back soon to try other dishes. Their pizza is terrific; I've also had their Chicken Marsala which was excellent. The service is great - very accommodating to special requests. And they have a nice selection of Washington... More
