The Salmon Salad is the best. The dressing is out of this world. It is only on the lunch menu, but you can get it in the evening for a different price than lunch.

We love this place. The food is always great and the specials are always changing. We lobe the fresh warm bread that’s brought to the table. I Always get the pizza or pasta, but the wife does the fish and loves it.

Sat at the bar and had great service. Waiter was very attentive to us and made great suggestions for wine and dinner. We had a bottle of red blend and lasagna. Both were great. We will be coming back.

We had a great lunch. Spectacular service and the food was so good!!! Large portions and very fresh! The average lunch entree is around $10 but plenty to take home for dinner. The bread and oil was so good! Don’t miss out!

Been going here for 3 years. Food was fantastic. About 6 months ago, it started to decline. Prices went up. We ordered a pizza and side salad to go. Pizza was not right and crust was burnt/pizza dry. Not juicy like it use to be....More

In the authentic Italian tradition, we select our simple, whole ingredients and combine them by hand with heart, using the time-honored method of open flame cooking. We utilize the intense heat of our wood burning ovens to lend unique flavor to our food.
From our hand-made mozzarella to our artisanal pizzas, pastas and salads, we have a passion for quality and pride in our product that we know you'll appreciate. We only use sustainable, fresh, local ingredients.
