Come here as soon as they open if you want to guarantee a table - otherwise it will quickly fill up and you'll be standing and waiting hungrily while pizzas are flying left and right to the tables. We ordered the Lady Zaza and Sweet...More

My husband I stopped by to have dinner one evening this fall. It was a very pleasant experience. The menu was creative and interesting. The food was delicious and the wait staff attentive.

I've eaten pizza in NYC. I've eaten New York pizza in Minneapolis. This isn't NY pizza...and it isn't Minneapolis.
