My large sausage, mushroom, onion pizza had 16 mushroom fragments, half as many onions and an essensce of sausage on a thin tough crust. Really- this make Pizza Hut look gourmet.

I apologize for your bad experience. As I tried to contact you personally to see how I could fix the problem, you had no response. I offered your money back and/ or to give us another shot on us. Apparently none of these would work for you. I apologize for that. Thank you.

The new owner has done an amazing job transforming this take out pizza place into full service restaurant. The redone decor and added seating is perfect for that after work drink. With summer coming the patio seating will be something to enjoy as well.

We've been three times to this place and loved the pizza every time. It also has a full bar. This isn't a quick, cheap pizza joint, but a true gourmet restaurant with thoughtfully sourced and combined ingredients. It's not cheap, and there are just a few tables. Great thin-crust Italian-style pizzas with delicious toppings. They have an excellent gluten-free crust.

Because the space isn't air-conditioned they leave the door open, which can make for chilly drafts near the entrance. There are tables outside for whenever it gets warm enough to eat outside.

Open only3:30-11:00, eat in or take out. Nice salads and sides (we had great roasted asparagus wrapped in outstanding prosciutto last time).

After finding the public couldn't remember "Sentirse Bene" ("feel good"), they changed the restaurant to just "Bene"--which is what you see on the signs.
