My husband and I went there the other night for dinner. He was craving good pizza after watching a show of the Food Channel about pizza.

We have have mamy meals here but this was not a good meal. They were busy and it was loud. The food was very good but the service was not. We had a Ling wait to order and get our food. We ran out of tea and water before they refilled our drinks.

Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful as he answered all our questions about the menu items. The lasagna was extremely good. I will be visiting here again.

Good selection of Italian dishes and pizza. Personally, the Steak Sandwich is the Bomb. Give it a try. Lunch will set you back about $10.

Reasonable menu selection from salads to sandwiches to pizza. Meals are always fresh with high quality ingredients, the atmosphere is nice, and great service. Affordable prices make this a value.
