This is a typical Highlands hole in the wall. We ordered calzones. They were delicious...and reasonable by Highlands standards. As an added bonus, each calzone was two meals.

Hello and hope you are doing well. I do not have wine by the bottle. I do offer a white pizza which is one of our most popular pizzas. I offer no shell fish. I hope this helps.
