Always check the daily specials for delicious meals. The pizza is always spot on. Dog friendly when sitting outside which is a plus for the downtown atmosphere

We had 2 salads and a small pizza here. The food was excellent, service great. Price was high for 2 salads, 2 ice teas and a 10" pizza. I would go back however I would get just a pizza to go.

A great small place on Main Street with a wine bar next door. The apps were great and we’ve been looking for some good pizza since we moved from Jersey. We really enjoyed it and will be back.

I had the pleasure of dining at Fav's last week. The food was very good and the service even better. In addition to the Italian menu there are specials. I had the salmon over garlic mashed potatoes. Extremely tasty and well presented.

We stopped in this restaurant after visiting the nearby museum and were thrilled with our food. The spaghetti was very good. It wasn’t loaded with tons of unnecessary spices as some restaurants use. The meatballs were the same way. The bread was also great. This...More
