Stopped in on the way home. Ordered a simple specialty pizza (not on Web menu) but it had bacon, which I substituted with grilled chix. AMAZING....and, the chef went out if his way to give me some chopped fresh basil!! Fantastic! Ate 2/3 on ride home. Saved a few slices for my wife. She loved it too. Thank you

SO disappointed with this place! I had come here on a visit in May and a friend who lives in the area brought me here. Maybe we were just lucky that night, but it wasn't a bad meal and the service was fairly good. This time was horrible! The service was incredibly slow, from having someone come over to take... More

We've been here a few times, without disappointment. Both service and food is very good. Whether it be pizza or plated meals, everything has always been consistent. Always a decent place to grab a meal in Newtown.

Not only that the food is great, the attitude and kind hearted owner accommodated two wheelchair customers by giving up a table for 7 persons to serve 3 customers of which two are in wheelchair. How wonderful that is! A month ago I had dinner there too. The taste of the food I ordered was not so tasty as I... More
