We have been picking up pizza here since they opened. In particular we enjoy Margarita and Lomax. On this occasion we ordered one of each with a salad of fresh buffala mozzarella in arugula with heirloom tomatoes and pesto. I also asked for an order...More

We went here for my daughter’s birthday. My husband and I arrived early, and ordered appetizers for the table. They arrived promptly, about the same time as the rest of the party. We ordered drinks, and waited for them. And waited. And waited. Finally the...More

Ravioli is to die for - but the portion is for a child but with an adult price tag! SHAMEFUL! Austin is a great bartender and super personable. Drinks and food are wonderful.

I was shocked at how fabulous they were at wanting to accommodate Gluten Free. I had the best pasta dish and they also offered gluten free bread with the oil prior to the meal. The warm corn cake with orange marmalade was a perfect ending.

We loved loved loved the food here, especially the freshly made bread they bring out- some of the best I've had. Everything is hand crafted and is done so well. They used homemade mozzarella to make fried cheese sticks when we were there, which were...More

Bottomless mimosas.... and good ones, not the sort that leave you wondering if they are using a teaspoon to top off a glass of OJ. The eggs Benedict comes on delicious Italian bread, the sort of bread you will run miles upon miles just so...More

Three or four days in advance I made on-line reservations through Open Table. It was my wife's 78th birthday and we were probably totally overdressed for the occasion. We arrived for our reservation probably a few minutes early and were met with confusion on the...More
