It was a great stop for lunch after the Ringling Estates tour. They have an extensive menu, to include a personal (4 good size slices) for a gluten free pizza. I had the calzone. It was all very fresh and tasty. Great service!

This is an excellent neighborhood red sauce Italian restaurant. The prices are reasonable and the menu is pretty expansive. I love the pizza and we order it for pick up. My husband swears by the milanese which is a breaded cutlet served on wilted spinach...More
