“Decent pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Four people shared two appetizers. two large (thin crust) pizzas, large bottle of water, and one house glass of red wine ($65 total). Appetizers were overpriced for portion size. Pizza was lovely (one cheese, the other vegetarian). Teenage son could have eaten whole pizza by himself (very thin crust)..so not the cheap pizza night we had expected. More of a date night kind of place than a feed-the-teenagers restaurant. Located on a side road with no ocean view.

“Maybe the pizza is good?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Sorry, but this place was pretty darned awful. Our party had pasta which truly seemed to come out of a can or had been frozen. It tasted strange and the sauce was incredibly bland, almost like canned pasta tastes. We have been all over the world (including Italy) so we know what decent pasta and sauce should taste like. One of us had steak, and despite being told to cook it "medium" it was like a piece of shoe leather. Another person in our party had fish and that was OK, although a bit overcooked as well. The grilled vegetables that came with the fish were very good. Maybe this place is good if you want to just order pizza. But in my opinion the food is marginal and some of it doesn't seem very fresh.

“Great Food and Great prices!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We had dinner here one night and it was absolutely wonderful! The decor was very interesting and the whole place was spotless! The food was delicious, our waiter was very friendly, helpful and very attentive. The menu was quite extensive if you want something other than pizza. My husband had a chicken dinner with pasta, which he said was very good and I had a veggie pizza, one of the best I have ever eaten anywhere! All this and at a great price too!
