“One of my favorite "walk to" spots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Since I work downtown I try and get out and walk to lunch every now and again. When I have the time I like strolling to this restaurant. I like the menu variety from fairly inexpensive pizza to full blown entres. The food is really very good and the service is friendly. I also like to meet friends for happy hour every now and then - love the $3.00 wines and free pizza!
On a nice balmy day, with the open windows and beautiful view of Bushnell Park, this is one of the most pleasant places to eat.

“Mediocre food, nice atmosphere and excellent service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We had early dinner reservations on New Years Eve. Our large party of seven had terrific servers who even had a pizza specially made for us. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre. The soup of the day, butternut squash, was way too thick and lacked flavor. The pasta was overcooked and drenched in too much sauce. The atmosphere was quite pleasant.
