Great food. Attentive staff. Reasonably priced. The pastas, salads and pizzas are all fresh. Open kitchen so you can sit at the bar and see how the food is prepared and feel part of the action.

This place was delicious! I went out to find a really yummy pizza and stumbled across this find. Their pizza was cooked to perfection & full of flavor. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about the pizza, the service & the restaurant in general.

In the authentic Italian tradition, we select our simple, whole ingredients and combine them by hand with heart, using the time-honored method of open flame cooking. We utilize the intense heat of our wood burning ovens to lend unique flavor to our food.
From our hand-made mozzarella to our artisanal pizzas, pastas and salads, we have a passion for quality and pride in our product that we know you'll appreciate. We only use sustainable, fresh, local ingredients.
