They make a great gluten-free pizza crust. I ordered a 12" half Moosha and half Traditional. Very good! Hubby ordered the $25 (worth it), 12" Godfather pizza. This is not your momma's deep dish, this thing is a monster. Huge, easily feeds 6 people. "Its awesome" he said. He could only eat one piece. Come hungry if you order the... More

I rated this poor not because of the waitstaff or menu. It is because of the kitchen. I ordered chicken parmesan and it was served raw. After several bites that I could not eat, I sent it back to the kitchen. It dawned on me later that the chicken may have been too thick for this kind of dish. Who... More

Just happened upon it on our drive home from Sacramento! Food was SO flavorful and HUGE portions (means lots of leftovers!). They even make their own wine. Very friendly staff and nice relaxing atmosphere. Must do!

Despite the dining room only being around 50% full on a recent evening we (a party of 5) sat & sat & sat waiting for someone to acknowledge we were there. By the time a server came to our table we were literally within 30 seconds of getting up and leaving. We ended up eating here but everything considered would... More

We called in our order from the hotel and we're told 20 minutes. We even gave them a few extra minutes but when we got there they claimed they never got the order. Finally after they realized we were not going to budge they put in our order again. The bartender did take off one of the pizza's as a... More
