This place is the real deal. When you walk in you notice, at least I did, cans of San Marzano tomatoes, Ken Folkish's book, "Flour, Water and Yeast" and a Neapolitan pizza oven. Seeing all of this I had high expectations. Our party of 6...More

Nice atmosphere, buffalo pizza was average at best, octopus was sub-par, gnocci was good. Prices were large, portions and sizes not so.
