Leslie, I'm sorry your calzones took so long Sunday night. Unfortunately there was limited space in the Pizza oven and Sunday was a very busy pizza and calzone night. Usually pizza and calzone take aprox 20 minutes, but when we're backed up like that it...More

I thoroughly enjoyed my tortellini carbonara, although perhaps pricey at $28. My friends who also had pasta enjoyed their meals too. One guy had a calzone that was almost inedible. The guitarist was truly amazing, if a shade loud.
