I LOVE this place. It has fantastic food. I love everything on the menu (that I've had) but I recommend anything with the red sauce, it's delicious. Now, I will tell you, my first visit wasn't awesome, I swear they've gotten better. If you haven't...More

There was absolutely nothing not to like. The food was extremely good, the service was phenomenal and the atmosphere, well we should have eaten out on the patio but still the atmosphere is very good. Well done and we will be back.

Went for lunch with a friend, we shared a pizza and it was very good. Service was very friendly, the owner came out and chatted with us. Another friend had a pizza making birthday party here which they said was fun as well.

Went there for dinner based on reviews. Food lacking in seasoning and taste. Tomato sauce on chicken parm was acidic and straight from a can. Chicken was rubbery and watery. Pizza crust was cardboard lacking taste and texture. A real disappointment. One of the worst...More
