We decided to visit here based on word of mouth. We're glad we did. We have four young kids and they wanted the pizza. We got two pizzas because they are smaller compared to other restaurant's pizzas. Even though the pizza was small and somewhat pricey for a small pizza, it made up for it with how good it tasted....

Anything and everything is good here. It's hard to pick. I love the pizza and the salmon salad. My husband loves the pasta, Granddaughter loves the Mariana sauce. Also the bread butter and shaved cheese us wonderful

The service was top notch. We came with friends and all of us ordered the dinner for two special. First, it starts with soup or salad. I got the salad and asked for bleu cheese crumbles to be added. Wonderful! Next it came with a 2 topping pizza of your choice. It was tasty. Next came the entree. We ordered... More

Travelling into town toward Chicago, we decided to stop based on tripadvisor ratings looking for an Italian restaurant. The terrace is very nice, the dinner for 2 is a very good deal and most important, everything was very good.

Everything was excellent. Lovely outdoor eating setting, delicious food, good service. Four of us had lunch there. We had a salmon salad that was very good, pizza that was good, and 2 outstanding desserts. I would definitely go back to this restaurant

Staff a little arrogant. Ignored our request for outside dining. Pretty pricey $21 for pasta without a salad. While waiting our table the waiter was also emptying trash.

We always look for a restaurant with gluten free options and this one had both pasta and pizza crust. The restaurant is nice and if we hadn't been so hot from hours on the beach we would have definitely tried the outdoor seating, it looked lovely. We ordered pizzas and liked both the gluten free for me and my son... More

This was the favorite place we ate. Atmosphere is very relaxing and peaceful. Outdoor seating was nice. You don't feel like you are on top of each other. It has a nice variety of food - not all pasta and sauces.

Definitely one of the best meals we've had, wonderful atmosphere (their outdoor patio is just lovely, in such a dream like setting!) and all-around superb experience. Service was fantastic. We were a party of 7 who came in for a late dinner, and everything about this place was just excellent. Highly recommend having a meal there!

We live in South Bend but always enjoy making the drive to visit this wonderful restaurant. The cuisine is terrific. Homemade pizzas are delectable and the entrees are always terrific. If the weather is suitable try eating outside. We try to eat here on special occasions. Especially go for the dinner for two special. You won't be disappointed.
