Just discovered this restaurant, apparently about 6 months after it was opened; they haven't done much advertising at all. We liked it enough that we've been there two days in a row!
THE GOOD: The food was just excellent, and reasonably priced. After visiting Rome this year I've had a hankering for wood fired oven pizza, and to be honest the pizza here compares favorably with what we had in Italy. The bruschetta is toasted just right, though their version is piled deeper and higher with toppings than I'm used to. We've tried the cannoli as well, very nice. Sandwiches are on very good bread and have generous (but not excessive) portions.
Did I mention that the pizza was great? Crust done right, good toppings, and very nice specialty pizzas. My personal favorite is the breaded eggplant with sun dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and a drizzled balsamic reduction over the top. Also tried the Margherita, Diavola and White pizzas with complete enjoyment.
THE SO-SO: The building has been renovated through several incarnations but was a Howard Johnson's long ago . Ambiance is fair - clearly huge strides forward but not really a bistro environment. There is a limited number of tables, and on a Saturday night the small waiting area was overwhelmed...with inadequate seating for those in line. Friday lunch was easy and relaxed, but if you're looking for busier meal times you'd best get there early
THE NOT SO HOT: Service. Friday lunch we were well taken care of, but there really wasn't anyone else there. Saturday evening I had to get up twice to look for our waitress, and the second time (ready to pay the bill) she was leaning against a wall and staring into the parking lot. We weren't in a hurry and enjoyed our conversation, but it could have been aggravating in different circumstances.
Despite that, we're looking forward to returning.
