We ate at the tapas bar upstairs from the pizzeria. Great value for great food. The sea bass was so tasty.

“Off the beaten path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Certainly out of the way however the location is really interesting. While John has passed his wife and the other workers are certainly warm and welcoming. Pizza is pretty good. I hope it sticks around.
