Sauce is made from scratch and you can tell! Owner was speaking Italian to his cook staff and everything was great. Best calzone around. Had pizza on second visit and it was good also. We'll be back!

I've eaten here several times and have always been satisfied. I think it is funny that when you order a salad that they bring you a basket of crackers that they take away about half way through the meal.
