Our family of 4 went for dinner on a Saturday night at 6:15 and were seated immediately. Our waitress Beth was very nice and attentive without smothering us. The calimari was very tender but a little bit greasy. The tenderness made up for the greasy. My kids gobbled it up. My boys shared the small calzone which was big for a small. More than enough to feed at least one person. Both enjoyed it. Hubby and I shared the Basil Pie and it was excellent. Crust was thin like we like and basil was fresh. We both enjoyed happy hour drinks. House Pinot was really good, house whiskey was average. The tiramisu was EXCELLENT. I love tiramisu and try it everywhere we go and this was so good. Light, not overly sweet and creamy. We ate it in about 30 seconds. We will definitely come here again.

The dishes were tasty and well prepared, but the portions were comical, barely enough to be called an appetizer. Extremely over priced: 3 people, each had one glass of house wine and an entree ( 2 pasta dishes, one dinner salad). $72.00!!! No appetizers, salad, soup, or dessert and coffee. We all left hungry.
Check was given to me while my one guest was still eating. With 17 years in the business I was very disappointed.

You can read all the other teviews and some of them will nit pick but this is a locals favorite. Great thin crust pizza and calzone. Nice atmosphere and decent service. Small bar area if you prefer to have a martini and chat with others. Pizza rustica is the bomb! Great bslnce between the sauce onions and ham. Really flavorful. Enjoy!
