Delicious pizza, exceptional service, and interesting decor! I know that this food is quality as it much of it is locally grown or produced. Love this place.

I just had the best wedge salad I’ve ever had. My daughter had a delishious wood fired pizza. When you walk in the door it smells heavenly. So many great choices. The Tiramisu was outstanding. All soups are homemade. Service and location are perfect. Enjoy!

Nice, sit-down restaurant with good wine and beer options. Classy, wood-fired pizza concept. Casual to dressy. Good service. Food OK.
