We enjoyed tomato bruchetta, while our pizza was being prepared. The pizza was very good, I do prefer a little more sauce. The gentleman serving us was very friendly and served our table well. We will return to try some entrees on our next visit.

We've eaten there twice in the last couple weeks. Very good Italian food -- authentic to Italian cooking. The pizza is not American style, so if that is what you want, you may be disappointed. My wife did not care for the pizza (preferring XTreme...More
