We got the sampler for an app. The roasted peas and stuffed peppers were awesome. We ordered the Fontina Val d'Aosta and it was fabulous. The arugula was perfect and the roasted walnuts were a great touch. Good mix of craft beer from Burnem and Greenbush. Ambience is a mix of old and new.

My wife's parents took us here the night of our stay. They told me I was in for a real treat. They were right. The pizza there is so good. We had the sausage, the special (peach and bacon) and the margherita. All three were quickly devoured. They have a good craft beer list, too, so make sure to partake.

stopped here on our way back from Michigan. We ordered the breadsticks with spicy marinera...So yummy! My man ordered the special which was prosciutto and peach. When he received it he didn't realize it was covered with walnuts and onions. Not sure if we didn't hear that from the waitress or if she didn't tell us. Still good pizza just... More

We loved our meal and will definitely be back! The pizza was outstanding, as was the salad. Everything is clearly homemade and fresh! Our daughter has a peanut allergy, and the staff was very well-versed in all of their ingredients because everything is made on-site. It's very rare that we trust a restaurant enough to eat dessert there, but my... More

We live about 30 mins from this place and always heard wonderful things about the staff and food. My wife called ahead and got us a reservation. We arrived and this place was busy with several people waiting. We were greeted by the female owner and daughter. Both were so polite and nice. We ordered the Firecracker bread sticks and... More

The pizza dough was indeed homemade, but the crust is super thin and the pizzas are not very large at all. Our pizza was $18 and it served 2. The ingredients are all fresh though and seem very high quality -it's just not a super filling pizza because it's so thin. Good taste though!

This is how pizza should be! We've had the pleasure of wood fired pizza in Italy. This is as close as we've come in the U.S. to the crispy crust, and judicious use of toppings. We had the mixed appetizer of handmade bread sticks with marinara sauce, roasted broccoli, and sausage stuffed zucchini. Then, we had two pizzas, one prosciutto... More

Had the firecracker breadsticks, it comes with a side of spicy marinara with just the right amount of goat cheese to cool it down. The pizzas are delicious as well, thin, crispy Naples style pizzas. Friendly service and great food.

Quite a surprise in the middle of nowhere. Had the sample appetizers; included green beans, Italian sausage stuff peppers, bread sticks and marinara. All were delicious! Ordered two pizzas, margarita and sausage both were 5 star. The dough was definitely worth the trip. Sauce and topping s fresh and delicious. We will definitely be back when we're out that way.
