We have visited this family owned authentic bistro a few times in the past and returned last evening. Upon entering we were immediately greeted by Geoffrey. A warm welcome was extended-somewhat a feeling of a host waiting for guests to arrive at his own home for dinner. As we settled-in, we quickly learned of the specials from Ben. We ordered the Portobello mushroom appetizer and a Insalata Verde (spinach-mushroom-strawberries with a vinaigrette). He immediately offered to split the salad. Our favorite pizza is the gorgonzola-pear-bacon with balsamic reduction, and thankfully this also was a special this trip. All the items are fresh and expertly prepared. No doubt, the family takes great pride in the restaurant business. The menu prices are as accommodating as the staff. What a relaxing and enjoyable dinner.

This is a wonderful place to eat for adults and families. The restaurant staff is fabulous. The service is excellent and the food is outstanding! They use all organic products with the exception of a few items...but they tell you which items are not organic. The food is so fresh and made as you order. The prices are reasonable. We loved it and so did our kids! They also have a s'mores dessert pizza that is heavenly! We really, really loved it and if you are visiting you have to go here...you won't be disappointed.

Here in sandusky again with kids at the water park and could not pass up our treasure we found 6 months ago. Service is fantastic and very friendly. We ordered the cheese sticks to start. They are homemade and one and a half times normal restraunts. Kids loved them (so did we). We had stuffed mushrooms. There were only 2. They were fantastic, however we thought a little over priced 4 would have been great. We ordered personal pizzas for dinner I was thrilled they had my favorite pear and gorgonzola. Fantastic!!! Hubby had a loaded. Kids did pepperoni. Crispy, delicious and perfect. We went on Valentine's Day and had no wait. Our food came out in great time. Cannot say enough good things. Try it we think you Will love it too.

Excellent food and service. Very personable staff stayed open late for us! The food is AWESOME! A little different pizza, think outside the box! More like REAL Italian Food. Will definitely be returning next time we are in Sandusky!

You can't go wrong here pizza apps service drinks dessert were all fantastic. Stop here for lunch dinner family couple or buy yourself. FANTASTIC we got the white pizza and zucchini fries. Save room for desert s'mores pizza and white chocolate raspberry pizza is to die for. I've been here several times and have never been disappointed. If Tricia is working ask for her she was so thoughtful and attentive to anything we needed.
