Wow! This place has pretty much any kind of pizza you could want. They have unique and seasonal combinations, and the option to create your own. They have a generous single size or a smaller pizzetta size if you want to enjoy an appetizer or...More

Took 10 minutes to get anyone's attention and a menu. Tomato bisque was alright. Ceaser salad had no dressing on it but the bacon bits were good. Ham and pineapple pizza was lacking in flavor in the sauce. Would give it a second chance but...More

My husband and I both had the pesto pasta. It was delicious. Our waitress was very pleasant and the atmosphere was nice as the sliding doors opened up to the outdoors and a nice breeze was going through.

I've lived in the area for four years and never ordered in pizza because I didn't know where to order from. After some research I decided to take a chance on this place and I'm glad I did. Ordering online was new to me and...More

My wife and I tried this pizzeria for the first time in March, 2017. We shared a couple of the pizzettas (the Capricciosa and the Patate Pancetta; these are smaller 7" pizzas). My wife also had a caesar salad and I had the tomato bisque....More
