Delicious pizza and appetizers. I’m not sure that I’d call this place kid friendly, especially because it’s not your typical pizza, but it is BETTER. Definitely try if you’re in the area.

This is a popular restaurant. I recommend making a reservation. There is outdoor seating. My wife and I split a small Mista salad ($5) and there "Rustica" pizza ($15.50). Both were excellent. I would definitely eat here again.
