The band was amazing and the food the kitchen was putting out looked amazing! We will definately go back for dinner, drinks and good... More

We loved the service here. Wish they had vegan pizza but we ordered food without the cheese anyway. Everyone loved their food and the server was very nice. Food was prompt and a great atmosphere overall.

I hate to say that I've driven by this place probably 20 times and FINALLY stopped last night. Ordered a pizza to take home that was fab. It was a rather slow night, so as I waited for my pizza I was thoroughly entertained by the Italian gang of three (Andrea, Giovanni, and Matteo - I think it was Matteo--my... More

We went to this place on the second night after we came and after walking down the "main street" looking at everything else, we decided to give this a try. No regrets! We were immediately welcomed and seated by Andrea, drinks and food showed up as soon as we were decided, we were talked into their special lobster pasta, which... More

I ordered a Red Snapper filet that turned out to be one of the best meals I've ever had. We ended up coming for beers and wine late-night as well because the staff was outstanding. The pizza that comes out of the wood-burning over is the REAL DEAL.

We had the bruschetta and carbonara plate, and it was amazing. Followed by a few long islands, the restaurant vibe was very nice and clean, and the owner is a passionate and laid back character, always making sure the customer is suited well and seems to be fully embracing life to its fullest. I can see myself moving to Santa... More
