Calzones are super cheesy but the must have dish here is Chicken Stephanny that has chicken breast, shrimp & crab meat sauteed in chicken stock sauce & cream sauce. With homemade rosemary bread and ziti with marinara sauce.

This place has a great tasting pie! I had the spinach and tomato pizza and it was very good. Thin crust, not soggy...just right! They also deliver to local hotels, so this is a huge plus.
