We went to try out their pizza. Pizza was average. Good crust, but not enough sauce for my taste. Outside tables were a little cheap with plastic chairs. We were served with paper plates which is fine with me, but if you are going to...More

They have a limited menu but what they serve up is good. Pizza is very good and the few pasta dishes they have are better than average. Nice salads. Inexpensive bottles of wine.

We had a fantastic dinner....gnocchi. We shared the meal and it was perfectly sized. We each had about a dozen gnocchis. The sauce was delicious and no heartburn later. The salad was very fresh, the tomato beautifully ripened, the house dressing was excellent. And the...More

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.

They have a smaller menu than most Italian restaurants - they are the size of a cafe. But don't let that fool you - they have excellent food - and I'm pretty picky! If you're looking for eggplant parm because it's a... More
