Very nice place!!! We didn’t eat there, we order to pick up. We ordered the Margherita pizza, and it was super delicious. The only thing is that they make only one size for all their pizzas, 12” and is quite small.

we enjoyed the food, the pizza was excellent. Worth going to it was not too expense and the atmosphere was good.

We were so lucky to stumble upon this great spot while strolling over from Chestnut Street. The quality of food was wonderful. The three of us loved the grilled octopus, romaine salad, meatballs and margarita pizza! Our only disappointment was we didn't have room to...More

We visited in August and worried that we could not get gluten free at an Italian restaurant. They were very helpful in making and suggesting delicious things one could eat. They even surprised us with gluten free, freshly baked bread that was seasoned to perfection!...More

Good service and food. We tried 3 of the pizzas, all were very good; thin crusts and abundant toppings. We also had the prawn special which was very good in a nice marinate. The watermelon mint sangria was an interesting twist and enjoyable as was...More

This was one of the best. Nicely charred crust and the sausage and pesto had a nice kick. Had the special heirloom salad with really really good ricotta and herbs. In a word - delightful.

I would like to knock down a highly rated corporate owned (Starr) place, but I'm afraid I can't - it was delicious and very well designed, from dining room to menu to execution. This is a fairly casual up-price pizza restuarant right in the heart...More
