Only outdoor seating. The seating thay exists is uncomfortable. Nice gardens. Food ok but overpriced for what you get.

Great pizza in an atmosphere that is relaxed and welcoming. Be sure to arrive early to get a place on the patio. The staff are efficient and engaging. A must while staying in Gananoque.
