“Fresh, fabulous food”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The pizzas are all amazing - made with fresh ingredients and cooked on an open fire. Authentic Italian food and a great wine selection.

“Bad attitude”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

The pizza was pretty good, but the service was slow. The staff and the owner were rude. When we asked about why they didn't have delivery on weekends, we were given a lecture on how uninformed we were in the ways of business. I may not know about the pizza business, but I do know, that if you talk down to me like that, you will lose my "spending money with you" business.

“Decent place, but overpriced”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The antipasti plate is very good, the pizza authentic, but clearly overpriced. Four of us spent $ 85 on two pizzas, a small antipasti plate and a bottle of wine. The time it takes for the pizza seems excessive. Would go again when the weather allows for sitting outside.

“Delicious Pizza, Wine, and Amazing Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Everything at this place is wonderful! During the summer months, they have a enchanting, private patio. The wood oven pizza is the best around!

“Wonderful antipasta and pizza.”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Small, intimate, they grow their own herbs and make their own mozzarella and sausage. The large antipasta plate was shared between three of us with a bottle of wine and two pizzas. The pizza is thin and perfect!
