This was one of the worst Italian restaurants I have been to in a long time. I actually got ill on their food. The food quality is not good, the restaurant is not very clean. Although the service was actually not bad.

This the best pizza I have had in years. Wood fire done, it takes a while but when it arrives it is really worth the wait! The service is amazing, the decor could use some work. But the food makes up for that!!
