If you are craving a cracker crust pizza, this is the place. He makes both individual and larger size to share, with quality fresh ingredients. Not your loaded heavy meat creations, with imported cheese, light meats and vegetables. My favorite lunch here is a small pizza and a side serving of his balsamic and olive oil marinated baby mushrooms, tasty little garlicy mushrooms nuggets, yum.

We have eaten dinner here a couple of times, and if they only have a few diners, the service is fine, but with the dining room full, you wait for a long time, with inconsistent results. The last time my husband ordered the larger pizza so he could take some home, and got the small. We complained, but it would have been a longer wait to get another. No offering for a discount because of the mistake was offered.

Chef and owner offers a large range of Mediterranean dishes, as well as a few vegetarian dishes. His pastas are the best, along with the pizza. I've had fabulous mussels here, in a creamy tarragon broth you want to drink as a soup after, or scoop up with a whole loaf of bread, not wanting to waste one drop. But a stuffed squash vegetarian dish fell short on flavor.

All and all a great lunch stop, and good for dinner if you are bored with the usual local restaurant offerings. But don't expect the service to be stellar on a busy weekend night.

Whenever we have a night, this is where we go to eat. And we go for every special occasion. The meal is always fabulous. We like to eat somewhere where we wouldn't be cooking it better ourselves at home. We have never been disappointed. Always above expectations! Fabulous Chef!! Incredible menu! Awesome wine!
