Mid sized place offering a wide array of choice from the menu along with a number of special daily items, Ravioli in all forms are a highlight!

Went in on spur of moment had zippe de peci , it was lunch not busy but service as usual was attentive. Never had a bad meal, usually go for supper and don't look at menu before listening to specials usually 10-12 of them, nearly 100% of time I order one of the specials.

It's good for any budget from an affordable delicious pizza selection to fine fresh specials ranging in the $20/plate. Meals start at $12. They have a... More
