Food was awesome and generous portions. Some of the best salad dressings we've ever had. Friendly and attentive service. They surprised us with a small firework as a birthday candle in our cheesecake.

This is one of our family go-to restaurants. The food is good, especially the pizza and the cheese tortellini. Other food is excellent too. Prices are family-reasonable. It is a family friendly place, with an experienced staff and an on-site owner.

We do offer a gluten free pizza option! We have been told by many that is the best they've ever had! It is one size, 10" and is $10.80 for cheese and $1.25 for each topping that you add. Thank you!
