We were going there on a fairly regular basis and it used to be quite good overall. The pizza is still very good there. However, we had the steak and could hardly eat it. It was dry and awful. The cocktails are overpriced as well for a pizza place. The gravy on the veal cutlets tasted like gravy from a... More

We were told about the food at this restaurant so decided to give it a try last night. We walked in and the decor was pleasing. The place was empty. A table had just left. The waitress gave us our menus and asked if we would like anything to drink. We gave her our drink order and after 20 minutes... More

We came from a long day with three kids at Callaway Park. There was something for everybody on the menu including a wide array of vegetarian options. I can't say enough about our server... she was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and accommodating not too mention very cheerful and great with kids. Everyone was so happy with the entire experience. Will definitely... More

We have been there with family twice. The place is down to earth, really good food and reasonable price. Family style interior and the host makes everyone feel comfortable and welcomed.

The service and food here have always been very good quality and I certainly recommend the pizzas. I tried the steak and found it to be excellent. The ceasar's salad is one of my favorites here. They do charge extra for small add-ons, such as mushrooms or gravy, which I thought should be included in the menu price.
