Pizza is good. This works really well if you have a mixed generation gathering. It's rather casual but the service is attentive.

When I'm in the mood for calzone, this is my Go-To place! The dough is excellent and the filling is more than generous. The restaurant can get loud and there are lots of kids if you go for an early dinner.
