Enjoyed Lena’s thoroughly - great atmosphere, we ate outside on a cool March evening, but the heaters kept us comfortable. We had pizzas and paninis, and everything was delicious. We can recommend the arugula and prosciutto pizza especially. Kid and dog friendly.

Super awesome staff, looked like a great team and sphere to work in. The brick oven pizza was excellent! Lots of TVs. Parking was a bit odd (shared with 7-11 on the other corner of the building), but aside from that, no complaints from me.
