Really enjoyed our meal there, and the young couple that own the place are very pleasant and informative. I will definitely be going back.

Delicious food, and right in downtown Portsmouth. A short drive off Rt 64- so a great stop if you just need some food while traveling. The restaurant itself is really dark, but has a decent atmosphere. Didn't try the pizza, but the calzones and Stromboli were fantastic.

One of my local friends loves this restaurant and highly recommended it. My shipmates and I enjoyed a delicious meal. The pizza, calzone, pork dish, and salads were all flavorful and cooked perfectly. The casual atmosphere is good for groups and families. There are even some toys for kids to play with.

Locally sourced dishes, ALWAYS fresh, and a great selection for meat eaters and veggietarians alike. Pizzas are a must! Smaller restaurant, so seating is limited, but I think worth the wait.

wasn't an overly memorable experience... Although I must admit the waitress was quite nice & friendly, I found the decor & presentation of the place to be seriously lacking ... It was actually borderline tacky 😁 I ordered a barbecued chicken pizza & I believe the pizza might have been tasty but the chicken tasted freezer burnt... So this made... More

We went for a family birthday dinner and our party of 10 was seated promptly and our drink orders were taken and delivered. Most of us ordered pizza and then shared. The pizza was hot, with fresh ingredients. We will visit again the next time we are in town. The owners are very friendly and the chef came out to... More

Loved it! The pizza was outstanding! The chef and waitress were very friendly. They also sell canned goods, packed by the chef.

We are always looking for fresh good food and weren't disappointed here. The owners are friendly. The chef is very creative. They make their own pickles of various kinds, and I believe he cures his own meats.

Visited twice during our stay. The kids gravitated towards the pizza and calzones, which were great and filling. The highlight for me was a roasted chicken dish with fresh beans and mashed potatoes. Service was crisp and prices were very reasonable. I would gladly return.
