It is a small Italian restaurant that is located downtown. It has a small inside area for diners, but they also have a small section on an outdoor patio. The food is always good.

Always check the daily specials for delicious meals. The pizza is always spot on. Dog friendly when sitting outside which is a plus for the downtown atmosphere

We had 2 salads and a small pizza here. The food was excellent, service great. Price was high for 2 salads, 2 ice teas and a 10" pizza. I would go back however I would get just a pizza to go.

A great small place on Main Street with a wine bar next door. The apps were great and we’ve been looking for some good pizza since we moved from Jersey. We really enjoyed it and will be back.
