Make a reservation on a weekend. We love holy grail pizza. Simple, just fresh mozzarella and basil thin crust pizza - excellent. Great beer selection and they even have wine on tap. We tried the Malbec and it was good.

Very frustrating tonight. I asked for a gluten free menu. On the menu you can have crab avocado dip with tortilla chips instead of bread. Sounds great. Waiter was on top of it. Oh the tortilla chips are fried in the same oil as the...More
