Quick, friendly, knowledgeable service from Mike. The pizza was outstanding...fresh veggies, prosciutto, and a very tasty crust, and a fair value at $15-18. The pizza is bigger than 12" for sure. Will try pasta dishes next trip, as menu is loaded.

we've been here twice in a week. That should tell you a lot. First trip: they have gluten free pasta for my wife, and she liked her dish. I had a chicken picatta and it was OK - nothing very special and not worth returning...More
