We make this our spot for a family dinner out each year in OBX. The menu has good variety and something for all ages. The pizzas are large and very good, I had the BBQ chicken. Large portions and a good beer/wine menu. Staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. We will be back next year for another great experience.

The bartender had absolutely no personality. Got the tomato caprese and the tomatoes were not fresh and there was no flavor to it or basil. Ordered the fresh mozzarella sticks and they were cheese sticks out of a box. I ordered a mimosa and got no orange. No Italian warmth or comfort.

Eat here when you come to Corolla. My daughter and I ate here one afternoon and we will make this place a must do every year. The food was so fresh and creative. The service was excellent.

Call ahead seating available. Saves a lot of time. Delicious food. Indoor seating is a must in the hot humid summer months so this is the place to go. Staff very friendly and fast service. We laughed and had a great time on vacation.
